Area 32 Speech and Evaluation Contest Report 2016

Today I had the pleasure of attending the Area 32 International Speech and Evaluation Contests at the Fishbourne Centre on the outskirts of Chichester. Contest winners from Solent Speakers (Fareham), Spinnaker Speakers (Portsmouth), Arun Speakers (Chichester), County Communicators (Chichester) and Worthing Speakers battled it out for the honour of representing Area 32 in the Division Contest in Dorking next month.

I am delighted to report that Solent Speaker was well represented with seven members who took on various roles on the day. We had three members competing.  Antonia Harrison (International Speech Contest), Wendy Benson (Evaluation Contest), and Russell Streeter (Speech and Evaluation Contests). Technically, Russell was representing Spinnaker Speakers, of whom he is also a member.

Our very own Margaret Bishton volunteered to chair both the Speech and Evaluation Contests and in so doing gained valuable leadership experience and took a step closer to achieving her competent leader award, as did our VP-PR Lee Werrell who served as a ballot counter, and Steve Brookfield and I served as Judges.

As usual, both contests were closely fought and the audience of local Toastmasters were entertained by a very high standard of speaking.   The results of both Area 32 contests are as follows:
