Mixed fortunes at Area Contests

Monday, January 13th, 2014

Chris Clissitt won the Area Evaluation Contest on Sunday 12th January at York RI Speakers Club’s new venue, the York RI Bowls Club. The runner up was Sarah Daniel of York, with Howard Herbert also competing on behalf of Wetherby SC.

John Holian was runner up in the speech contest with “Superman, Where Are You Now?” but our club winner, Niki Boersma, missed out on a place with her speech “Home Is Where The Heart Is.” All four speeches were of a very high standard, absorbing, entertaining and hugely enjoyable to listen to. The winner, Ramana Sundara, was on top form with his speech “Same Species, Different Worlds”, a speech we had the earlier pleasure of hearing when York visited in November.

York achieved a 1-2 in the Topics contest won by Clive Dawson with Mary Donohoe runner up.

Ramana, Chris and Clive will represent Vale of York Area in the District Contests at the Bridge Inn on Sunday 9th March.
