Blanche MacQuinto was the winner!
We held our Club final for the Evaluation Contest on Wednesday, March 2, 2011. There were three members in the Contest
Peter Law, Greg Madden and Blanche MacQuinto
Michele Naidu from Canning Vale Club was the test speaker. She spoke about St Patrick’s Day, with a very appropriate Irish accent.
Janet McNie was the Timer, assisted by Glenis Nicholas. And we had a timing disqualification!
Blanche was first, and Greg second.
Blanche will represent the club in the Area W21 final being hosted by Gateway on Tuesday evening, March 22nd. That evening will also have the Area final of the International Contest. Neville Simmons is our representative.
Besides the Contest we had two excellent speeches.
Christine Bonser gave her Competent Communicator 2 – An unchartered adventure – about exploring Kimberley waterways in a boat.
Andrew Bond gave his Humorously Speaking 2 – Live life on your terms. It was a serious speech with jokes.
Blanche was very surprised to win the Evaluation Contest as she is a very recent new member of Victoria Quay. She is so new in fact that when President Peter Law presented badges to two new members she was one of them, along with Christine. Christine and Blanche are shown reading and accepting the Toastmasters Promise.
