Hu­mor­ous speak­ers de­light au­di­ence

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

Kar­ratha Toast­mas­ters held its sec­ond year of the hu­mor­ous speech and ta­ble top­ics com­pe­ti­tion in front of a packed house of mem­bers and sup­port­ers re­cently.

Ta­ble top­ics com­peti­tors were pre­sented with a topic and had to speak elo­quently on it for two min­utes.

This year’s topic was “you have been se­lected to start a colony on Mars. There is no chance of re­turn. Why do you want to go and what can you bring to the pro­ject?”

Sa­daya Marathe has a back­ground in en­gi­neer­ing and con­vinced us all of the ben­e­fits of in­clud­ing her.

Hu­mor­ous speech is a free form as long as it is funny and meets the cri­te­ria set in the Toast­mas­ters com­pe­ti­tion guide­lines.

The au­di­ence was in stitches dur­ing the com­pe­ti­tion.

Sally Cul­ver’s “Re­venge”, about sib­ling ri­valry was bril­liant but Lizeth Ruiz took the gong on the night with tales about her chil­dren.

Toast­mas­ters’ dis­trict of­fi­cer Lynette De­laney came from Perth to present the cer­tifi­cates.

The club meets ev­ery sec­ond Tues­day at the KDCCI rooms.
