Club Speech and Topics Contests 2013/14

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

Two contests in one night! On Thursday 5th December the club held its annual Speech and Topics Contests featuring some high quality speaking and entertainment.

Niki Boersma won the speech contest with her beautifully observed “Home for Christmas” and John Holian was runner up with “Whither the Weather?”.  The judge was Chris Clissitt.

Peter Wilson chaired the Topics Contest and asked members to speak for three minutes on topics based on phrases beginning with “Under….” such as “Under the Thumb” and “Under the Impression”. Votes were cast by all present and the winner was Chris Clissitt with Jocelyn Brooks runner up.

Niki, John, Chris and Jocelyn will represent the club at the Area Contests to be held in York on Sunday 12th January.
