After dinner speech contest – Wetherby News Report 28.3.14

On Friday 28th March, a meal was held at the Bridge Inn, Walshford following which there was the After Dinner Speaking Competition. This was a light-hearted evening as five members of the club had to take part in a scenario that had been devised by Chris Clissitt.

 The MC was Niki Boersma and the scenario was as follows:

The recently launched Tyke TV has its roots firmly in Yorkshire but wants to attract a wider audience by purchasing an already well known reality TV franchise. At a special dinner at Tyke’s Wetherby headquarters, reality TV presenters state the case for their programme to be the centrepiece of Tyke TV.

 The people who were trying to sell their TV show to the Directors of Tyke TV were Simon Scowell of The Y Factor, Phil Spawny with Location, Location, Location – as Long as it’s in Yorkshire, Cloudier Ripvanwinklewoman the host of Strictly Come Clogging, Alan Zucker presenting T’Rookie and Drunken Baritone from Braggarts’ Barn. The people taking part were John Holian, Chris Clissitt, Jocelyn Brooks, Peter Wilson and Neil Wilson respectively

 The judge was the National President of the Association of Speakers’ Clubs, Lindsay Dutch and the winner of the Sean Harrison Trophy was Chris Clissitt and the Wetherby Speakers’ Club was delighted that Sean was there in person to present the cup. Chris Clissitt was thanked for organising the contest and Mavis Cryer for arranging the meal.
