Contest Winners

On September 4, we held our club Humorous Speech and Table Topics Contest. On the speech front, Mark Morden came out on top with his speech on crossing the street in Italy entitled “When in Rome.”  Bill Higbee came in second with his description on how he and his wife handle disagreements with a bet entitled “You Were Right. I Was Wrong.”

Laura Grove (pictured at right) won the club Table Topics contest answering the question ”We live in a world of rules. What one rule do you want to eliminate and why?” Laura would eliminate the strange rule of people lining up for the bus. Judy Dunn came in second with eliminating the prohibition on wine in her 24-day diet.

Unfortunately neither of our club speech winners were available to compete in the next contest, but Laura went on to the Area 43 contest and took First Place in Table Topics! The question was “What did you do when you were a kid that got you in the most trouble?” Laura’s answer was when she had locked herself out of her house, she enlisted the aid of a neighbor who set up a plank to get to a window. Her parents weren’t thrilled with Laura or the neighbor.

She represented our club in the contest and will now represent our Area, 43, in the Division D contest on Saturday, Oct. 27, 1 pm at the ERAC building in Burien.

Another member of our club, Dave Kietzke, won Second Place in the Table Topics Contest. Dave was representing his second club, Daystar Dialoguers, in the Table Topics Contest. Should Laura be unable to attend the Division D contest for any reason, Dave would become the Area 43 representative.

Congratulations to all who took the next step to develop their speaking skills and entered the contest. And best of luck to Laura on the 27th-come on out and cheer her on!
