The story that never was

Keith provides some 'real' answers
It has been said that an exceptionally good liar, requires an exceptionally good memory.
This is especially true if you're trying to convince a toastmasters audience that your tall story actually occurred, and when it came to inaccuracies, lies and devious wit, Monday's speakers did not disappoint.

Before the competition began, Rod delved into his CC7 speech, very aptly titled: "Train of Thought".
He discussed the coal trains travelling from Ermelo to Richards Bay, some of which weigh as much as 21000 tons when fully laden.
It was classic speaking from one of our most experienced members, and included vocal variety, gestures and a sense of energy portrayed to perfection.
Ruth's advanced speech required her to present a product and pitch to entice us to buy; and her choice of product? An instant hot/cold water filter! If questions are anything to go by, she certainly had done a great job with her presentation, as well as her homework to answer some of the more unusual enquiries!

Glenice breaks IN to prison
On to the tall story contest.
The contestants, Keith, Ryan, Ruth, Glenice & Rod were all required to fabricate an exotic story for the rest of us to enjoy, and as mentioned above, they all came to the party.
Some of the highlights included Ruth's attempt to talk to the animals, Glenice's attempt to break IN to prison, before effortlessly breaking out again, and Ryan's attempt to prove that the ancient hominid bone he had found was indeed 1.56 million years old. Keith's reasoning behind the failing economy was however the pick of the bunch, and after convincing us that fashion was the sole culprit for the current recession, he was duly awarded 1st place!
