Jerry Marino gave us several interesting and unique things to do in San Diego this weekend to say farewell to Summer at our Aug. 29 meeting. Highlights were the speeches delivered by Rod Hamby (Bad is Good), Angelique Hood (Inside the Dream), and Amy Gilstrap (The Effective Salesperson). Rod Hamby was voted Best Speaker, Diana Bergman – Best Topics, and Hal Slater – Best Evaluator! We had several guests (remember, we need more members!) and it was an interesting way to say farewell to the pseudo end of summer.
News of Note:
Our Humorous and Evaluation Speech Contests are next Thursday, Sept. 5. If you are not participating please attend to help out with functionary duties and provide an exciting audience for the speakers.
We will begin a Speechcraft training for new and prospective members starting Oct. 3. More to come on that.
Semi-annual dues are now due (is that redundant?). They are $63 for club and Toastmasters International, $65 if paid by credit or debit card. You can pay at our meetings or send your dues to 1160 Hunter Stree, San Diego, CA 92103.
Let’s fill the room at Café Coyote next week for our contests – “Let the Games Begin” with Mark Imhoff as Contest Chair and Toastmaster and Alan Hoffmanner as Chief Judge.
