Tonight’s MeetingIMG_1127

Tonight is shaping up to be a very entertaining evening as we hear from some of our newer members:
John, Gaetan, Richard and Miriam.
Please come along and show your support!


At our last meeting we concluded the second of our contests events with amazing speaking performances from all of our competitors. Competing 
in the International event were Greg Cain, Kelvin Wilson & Heather Earle,
whilst in the Evaluation section we heard speeches from Heather Earle, Brigitte Linder, Ian Chalmers, Gaetan Nemorin, Barry Dickins, Kelvin Wilson. The quality of the speeches was once again very high which I’m sure made adjudicating difficult for our guest judges (our friends from Mornington, Jenny Davison, Jeremy Chen and Ginette). Well done to all competitors and congratulation to everyone moving on to the District competition level.
