humor-speech-contest-ideasAfter a long day of work, laughter is often the best medicine.

Join us on September 15th at 6:30pm at Brookdale West Seattle, 4611 35th Ave SW for our annual Fall Speech Contest, the Humorous Speech where you’ll roar with laughter and have some good-ole knee-slapping fun as you watch Toastmaster members compete for the biggest laugh.

The West Seattle 832 Toastmasters Club enjoys a good laugh, which is why our fall speech, the Humorous Speech is so highly anticipated.  All Toastmaster members are welcome to test their ability to bring the house down with laughter! You must log-in and sign-up on the membership website page.

Longtime Toastmaster member, Franni Turean highly recommends the Humorous speech contest, which fits nicely into the bi-weekly Toastmaster meetings.

“I love contests, because as a competitor you get to push yourself. As a spectator, you get to see speakers giving their best speech, one they have worked on longer than a garden variety meeting speech. The speeches are still as in a regular meeting, 5-7 minutes long, and the whole contest fits right in the same block of time as our regular meeting, so it takes no extra time from my day. The Humorous Speech contest is my favorite of the entire year, because I get to be amused for the whole event! Way better than work”.

Test how many laughs can you fit into 5-7 minutes.






Christine Takes Second!

Christine wins

Christine and her hardware

On Saturday evening, November 15, our Christine Klimkowski competed in the District 2 Table Topics contest. The question each of the seven contestants had to answer was, You’re on the Vegas strip and suddenly you are surrounded by a bunch of bad Elvis impersonators all singing a different song. What happens next in the story? Christine wove a tale of her sailor buddies joining her to sing Elvis songs back at the impersonators, just louder and more out of tune. They eventually drowned out and defeated the bad Elvises — or is it Elvii?

When the voting was announced, Christine had take second place. This puts her in the top 2 (or top 0.053 %) of the more than 3800 members in ~185 clubs in District 2. Well done!

Christine had her own rooting section at the conference: Phil, Amie, Emily, Franni, Laura, Valorie, and Mark were in attendance to cheer her on. Next time you see her, give Christine a big congratulations on her success.
