Contest Night

It was contest night at First Oakville Toastmasters last night (Thurs. Sept. 20) and the room at the Quality Inn on Bronte Road was packed.

Humorous contest was first off and with four contestants (Teri Jacklin, Thersa Yust, Heather Cunningham and Loreen Paterick) only first and second place are announced. Humorous is not an easy contest if you’re not funny and that’s what keeps a lot of us old-timers from stepping in so last night we had a relative newcomer take first place.

Congratulations goes to Teri Jacklin whose talk about the exploits of her elderly neighbour Bob and her own husband Mike had the room rocking.

Heather Cunningham took second place with her equally funny talk about the “new cottage”!

After the break we had nine Toastmasters try their hand at Table Topics. This is a great contest for newcomers to throw their hat into the contesting ring. Last night three winners were announced with third place going to Eleanore Hayward[ second to Val Clements and first to Peter West.

Congratulations to all with Teri and Peter moving forward to represent First Oakville at the Area Contest October 10.
