Congratulations to Gary Ford! In front of a packed ballroom, his humorous speech "It's not my fault, it's the testosterone!" was a winner! Many Toastmasters feel the Humorous Speech contest is the most difficult of the four speech contests held in District 86 (Humorous, Table Topics, International, and Speech Evaluation), so congratulations are in order for ALL Toastmasters who participated in the contest at any level!
Congratulations to Richard Lewis! His approach to the topic "Relax" was judged the best of a very talented and accomplished group of competitors. Table Topics is challenging at the best of times; the District 86 Table Topics Championship showed how the best speakers in District 86 can give polished speeches with no preparation. It was truly inspiring!
