District Contest Results ....

Congratulations to Croix Sather and Rob Ferrucci !

Croix represented Area A4 (and his club, WestConn Toastmasters) at the District Tall Tales contest on Saturday May 13th and brought home a trophy for 2nd Runner-up (3rd place). This was Croix's first contest season and we look forward to seeing him in future contests. Certainly with the birth of his daughter, Mackenzie, he will continue to have plenty of material for speeches !

Rob also represented Area A4 and WestConn Toastmasters and drew the last speaking slot of the evening in the International Speech Contest. The competition was tough and the general consensus (of all the people I spoke to) was that only a few points separated all the contestants. Rob's speech, "Making the Lesson Real", earned him a trophy for 2nd Runner-up (3rd place).

Both speeches were videotaped and I'm sure both speakers are already thinking about their next contest (Evaluation and Humorous Speech Contests will be held in the Fall of 2006).

Congratulations again to Rob & Croix !
