Gatesville Toastmasters held a club International Speech Contest 2/27/14. Tony Estrada and John Leahy competed to go on to the Area Speech Contest to represent our club. It was stiff competition with Tony Estrada winning First Place with his speech about "The Gift". We also got guitar playing and singing from John to finish off his speech. Come out at the end of March to the Area Contest to give support to Tony Estrada and hear even more great speeches.
Don't miss our Spooktacular Open House Thursday October 31, 2013 from 11:30 am to 1:00pm at Laerdal Medical, 226 FM 116 Gatesville, TX. Food, Fun and Spooky Stories!
Our contest was a great success! Everyone had a role either competing or supporting and thanks to our Club Mentor Jim Cross and able Toastmaster Tim Manson, the contest ran on time and was very entertaining. We had some "rolling in the isles" speeches in the Humorous Speech Category and 5 capable participants in the Table Topics contest that spoke to the question, " What is it that turns an otherwise regular human being into a hero?". All of the contestants had great things to say and in the end the top honors went to John Leahy for Humorous Speech and Tony Estrada for Table Topics.
We are making great progress as a new club and are looking forward to future speech contests. The winners of this contest have advanced to the area contest which will be held on September 7th. The location and times will be posted as soon as I can verify them.
