What a week for South Coast Speakers Toastmasters. On Tuesday (tonight!) a number of our club members will hit the road to speak, judge and observe at the first speech contest in Mornington. This year our contests are combined with neighbouring clubs, which is a great outcome. The first contest will be International and Table Topics and a number of our club members are participating. Good luck to everyone who is representing South Coast Speakers in this contest round, we know you will do us all proud!
On Wednesday, of course, we have our regular meeting where we will hear updates from the first contest as well as some exciting speeches. Don’t forget it’s also time to pay our fees – we will set up a computer to enable online payments which should make the process easier.
