It was a Wetherby 1-2 in the speech contest, as Chris Clissitt claimed the runner up spot with his speech “The Idle Brume.”  In fact, Wetherby made clean sweep of silver medals, as John Holian was 2nd in the evaluation contest, and Chris Clissitt 2nd in the topics contest.

Jocelyn Brooks and John Holian  were joint winners of the club topics contest on 16th December. Unfortunately Jocelyn is not available on the 15th January, so Chris Clissitt will stand in for her at the Area Contest alongside John  Holian.
