Toastmasters Contests Conference Call - Mon., 2/11, 8-9pm

Fellow Toastmasters,
Contest season is coming up - Hurray!
To ensure we'll have lots of fun and no problems, our District Chief Judge, David Freedman, is offering to host a phone conference on Monday, 2/11, 8pm-9pm.
Conference Dial-in Number: (712) 432-1100
Host Access Code: 365780*
Participant Access Code: 365780#
We invite all of you to attend.
Also, please ensure that all of your clubs are aware of this opportunity to learn more about organizing a contest so they can run successful club level contests before March 21.
This spring, we'll have the following contests:
- Tall Tales speech contest: any member in good standing from a club in good standing can participate and give a 3-5 minute speech.

- International Speech contest: any member in good standing from a club in good standing can participate as long as the member has completed 6 speeches in the basic CC manual; the length of the speech is 5-7 minutes.
The winners of the Club contests will compete at the Area level, the winners of the Area level will compete at the Division level, and the winners of the Division level will compete at the District level.
The Tall Tales contest ends at the District level but the International Speech contest will go to the Regional level and then to the International stage in August in Calgary, Canada.
If any one of your clubs' members is unsure as to whether they should compete, please refer them to the articles in the Summer Yankee Activator describing the advantages of competing:
I hope to talk with all of you on Monday, February 11, at 8pm!
Have a great week!
Best regards,
Karin von Kaenel, Lt.Gov. Education & Training, 2007-8
