Humorous Speech Contest - An amalgamation of minds

An amalgamation of minds took place at the Wendywood sports club last night when Transformers teamed up with Golden Gavel Advanced Toastmasters Club! The occasion was each club's humorous speaking contest, and the combination worked wonders with both speakers and guests being treated to an evening of fun, laughter and good food.
Greg Callaway chaired the contest and did a fantastic job of keeping the audience engaged and everyone on their toes.

Golden Gavel then took to the stage with Jacques de Villiers providing humorous insights from his family's past, and Barbara Poultney providing humorous insights into the games she used to play. Mary headed up the Transformers team by enlightening us with the mishaps and strange goings on behind the scenes at the Beijing Olympics, whilst Ryan discussed the intricacies of avoiding a biodegradable relationship. Glenice's marketing skills came to the fore as she explained how business marketing strategies could be used in building relationships, whilst Jerry let his hair down, amongst other things, to keep the audience gasping and in stitches. His take on the plight of illegal immigrants was a twist that kept everyone engaged!

Jacques and Ryan now progress to the Area H2 contest, to be held on the 29th of September at the Wendywood Sports Club.

Many thanks must go to the Golden Gavel team for putting on a fantastic evening - no effort was spared in ensuring that all went according to plan. This included the organising of judges and timekeepers, the venue, the food and the raffle. A special thanks also to Sandton Toastmasters for joining and assisting us.

Join us for our next meeting on the 8th of September.

As always, guests & visitors are welcome!
