The remnants of Tropical Storm Nicole couldn’t keep about 50 Toastmasters away from the Area H3 competition. Jim Wilson bested 3 other Table Topics speakers with his tale of a balloon ride over Fairfax County. Minhaj Arifin took the measure of David Canes and three other speakers with a story about cultural differences between Pakistan and the United States. Jim will advance to the Division H contest two weeks from today at Vienna Presbyterian Church.
You might also want to keep November 12 and 13 open so you can attend the District’s Fall Conference. We’ll anticipate having Jim appear in the District Table Topics finals, but I learned today that the speakers for the educational sessions are Michelle James, Annelie Weber, Sam Horn, and 2010 World Champion of Public Speaking, David Henderson.
