District 22 Spring Conference (5/1)

The District 22 2010 Spring Conference is upon us.  Prepare yourselves for a full day of insightful keynote speeches, riveting competitions, and great company this coming May 1.  Plus, join in on the fun prior the the conference at Friday fun night on April 30 as clubs compete in Club Feud (kind of like Family Feud, but with Toastmasters competing for prizes and bragging rights).  You can find more details at the District 22 web site.

The keynote speeches for this conference are:

  • Mike Tuttle presenting on the topic of Vocal Variety
  • Larry Parke presenting on the topic of Speech Evaluations
  • Rhonda Green, “Giving Great Speeches”
  • Kay Franklin, “Dressing for Success”
  • Kathleen Cabot Smith presenting on the topic of Leadership
  • Evie Curtis, “Sales 101 for Toastmasters”

Division S Speech Contest Results (4/17/2010)

Today's contest was a spectacle to behold.  There were five contestants for the speech contest along with five for the table topics contest, and every presentation was easily worth the price of admission.  In the end, however, only one contestant from each contest is chosen to advance to the next level, and neither contestant from MarathonMasters got to claim that prize.  The winners will be presenting at the district conference on May 1, so make plans to attend.  If today's performances were any indication, the district level contests will be even more amazing.

Open House (4/15/2010)

We are having an open house this week (4/15/2010).  Don't let tax day bring you down.  Instead, come by for a MarathonMasters event.  Enjoy tantalizing speeches, insightful evaluations, and an exciting table topics session.  And while you're here, enjoy some snacks and refreshments, compliments of the MarathonMasters members.

Division S speech contest (4/17/2010)

This Saturday, April 17, Toastmasters is holding their division S speech and table topics contest.  We have two members who will be competing: Eldon in the speech contest and James in the table topics contest.  If you have the time, come by and help cheer them on.  Click the read more link to see the details.

Alternate meeting location (3/4 and 3/11)

For the next two weeks (March 4 and 11) we will be meeting in our alternate room due to a scheduling conflict.  When you enter the building, go up the stairs as usual, but then turn left instead of right.  We will be in room 207 at the end of the hallway.

Table Topic Contest (3/4/2010)

The second half of our contest, the table topics portion, is scheduled to happen March 4.  Much like the speech competition, the table topics are sure to be full of good presentations and lots of laughs.  Swing by and enjoy the show.
