So 3 club contests entered for 2 firsts and a second. It sounds better than it really is. I was very unprepared for the Midcity humorous contest. I think the basis of the speech was good, but it needed more preparation and I needed to work the laughs better.
Still, winning both Avon’s and Midcity’s table topics is not bad. Will I be able to get to the area contests? I think the Area contests should be winnable, but the divisions will be hard. Would I want to go to Invercargill? I suspect I will miss out because of the timing anyway.
It was fun being contest chair at Avon (25/08/2016) and my speech would have needed a lot of work to be competitive there. Some things to work on. Always a lot to learn at toastmasters.
