We had three excellent Humorous Speeches at the Contest on September 5.
Glenis was Contest Chair, and the Judges comprised all Club Members not taking part in the Contest. David presented a Workshop on how to Judge.
Heljo told us of her sporting career, starting with her failed attempt to play tennis in the style of her ballet training. She looked graceful but couldn’t hit the ball. Sport was a disaster for her until she became an Aerobics Trainer and as a Trainer she is a great success, because she can tell people what to do, without having to do it herself.
Nicky gave us a powerful reason to remember April 6, 1946. That was the day she married Bill in Kenya. It was a tally of disasters, failures, interrupting phone calls and a final triumphant “I do!” just before the Commanding Officer conducting the ceremony had to rush off to more important business. Getting married was a rocky process, but the marriage was a great success.
Claire had a passionate dialogue with “Her”. She started with a confession – she has been deceiving us all this time, but now she can’t keep it secret any longer. Behind the screen was “Her”, her sixty odd year old companion. She went behind the screen, and confirming predictions “Her”emerged and delivered a vitriolic attack on Claire, as she lived out her anti-social behaviour.
And the winner was
Claire with “Her”
