Our international and evaluation club-level contests are fast approaching. Thank you to Asghar who will chair the contest. This is a great time to get some speeches checked off and a fun way to practice your evaluations. If you have any questions about what is it like to participate in an international or evaluation contest, or to be a test-speaker at another club, then we have plenty of experienced people in Westhills who can answer them.
The following members will be more than happy to encourage you to participate: Nicki Rehn (3rd place Humerous at Division, 2015, Test Speaker), Clayton Watson (Table Topics), Keith Hickie (Test Speaker and Humerous), Flo Scherpenisse (2nd place International at District, 2016, Test Speaker), Jen Smith (2nd place Evaluation at District, 2015), Brenda Ball (1st place Evaluation at District, 2016), Kate Miller (Humerous), Stephen Larocque (judge-extraordinaire), Lucy Urquidi (Test Speaker). I am sure I am missed some contest accomplishments, but as you can see, we have great depth of experience.
March 20. Let's see those speaking and evaluating spots fill up. You have 3.5 weeks to write and prepare which is PLENTY of time. And if you want to be a test speaker (which, by the way, is SO MUCH FUN), then talk to Flo.
Here's to contest-season!!
