We had two excellent Speech Contests at our meeting on Monday September 26th.
Bridget Pearson was Contest Chair for both and did a magnificent job both beforehand (there is such a lot of printing and organising of people!) and in leading the contests in a calm, assured manner. Well done!
Shelagh Jones was Chief Judge for the Humorous contest, shadowed by Shane Lukas who was Chief Judge for the Table Topics contest.
Derek Lucian and Julie Pilcher were Timers and Counters, with Pauline Westrop as Sergeant at Arms, assisted by Julie Gordon.
A great team who delivered enjoyable and well-run contests.
