August 26, 2014 Theme: Judging

Barb was our toastmaster today and she picked the theme "Judging" because we were having our Table Topics contest. She shared that the most important thing about judging is fairness, which is using the same criteria and standards in scoring each of contestant's performance. 

Before the contest started, Anna was our first speaker. She gave a toast as the maid of honor at her best friend’s, her sister’s, wedding. She pretended we were the wedding party with the bride and groom. Anna did a fine job expressing her happiness as she gave her blessings to the newlyweds.

We had 3 contestants for the Table Topics competition, Robert, Linda and Jim. Each of them got the same topic and gave a speech on ‘what natural phenomenon they would like to see if they could witness it in a safe place.’ They all did a good job. Robert won the second place award and our winner, Jim, will represent our club and move on to the Area Table Topic Contest that that will be hosted on Sept 17th.

We had two guests, Sherry and Adriana. We were very glad to have them and hope they can come back in the future. 


  1. You always encapsulate the meeting well, Linda. Thank you for your work on these blog/minutes.

  2. I agree with Jean! Great summary.
