Like last year, Gurney Toastmasters Club and MIA Toastmasters Club jointly organized our very own International Speech Contest and Table Topic Contest on 30th January 2008 in Gurney Hotel, Penang.
The contest feature some of very seasonal speakers and some very new speakers battling out to be their club's Champion and compete in the area contest. But it was not easy, seeing everyone every-ready and eagerly awaiting their name to be called, some of the members were anxiously practising their speeches while other were just enjoying their butterflies....
Gurney Toastmasters, had the competition and we're proud to announce that our ex-pilot is the winner for International Speech Contest, while yours truly, the Table Topic Contest champion. Both of us will be competiting against other champions of Area S in the area contest and the winner will then represent the area to the District, which will be happening in the coming District 51 Annual Convention or known as Penang Convention 2008.
Wishing the winners all the best, and here goes the pictures that painted the night out for memories~
