Tall Tale Contest (24 Nov 2009)

Dear All,

I take this opportunity to announce the much awaited “Tall Tale” Contest to be organized by Speakers’ Dream Toastmasters Club.

Date : 24 November 2009, Tuesday
Venue : Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam, 1st Floor Bukit Kiara, Off Jalan Damansara,
Kuala Lumpur
Time : 7:00 pm
Ticket : RM10-00

We are targeting for 12 contestants. The contest is open to all Toastmasters in good standing. This will be on a first come first serve basis.

A tall tale is a fictional story with exaggerated details. We all crave for a good “yarn” every once in a while. The best and the funniest liars will be there. They know that you will be able to suspend your disbelief and allow the speakers to entertain you with their creative skills of yarn spinning. The speech duration is 3 to 5 minutes long.

The contest Chairman is none other than our DTM K. Loghandran. He is the 1st runner-up of Toastmasters International Speech Contest 2008-2009.

We need to tell a white lie sometimes and here is the chance for you to pick up some tips in doing so. Share this great news with all those that you know and let us have a fun and enjoyable evening together. I had attached herewith the poster for your circulation purpose.

Please call Teck Lee at 019-315 8082 or

Siew Chien at 012-311 3026 for further details.

Gita Bayu Outdoor Meeting

Dear Esteemed Members,

The outdoor meeting on Sunday 25 Oct was fantastic! There were 22 of us,which include 3 new members and 8 guests. Everybody loves Gita Bayu withits picturesque green lake and surroundings. The meeting was held on theFloating Pavilion of "The Enchanted Garden". The calm surroundings of thelake with occasional splashes of water by fish jumping out of the lakeprovided just the right ambience for Speakers Dream's outdoor meeting.Residents live amongst nature, where we were told some customised housesthere had won awards.

See attachment.

It was against this setting that saw the meeting in full swing. Theopening speech by President Ismail was very apt with this message onenvironmental preservation.

Our 1st runner up World Speech Championship, DTM K.Loghandran inspiredmembers and guests with humor and this talk on persuasion, citingSylvester Stallone.

The table topic session was conducted wonderfully by Chrissy Steinhardtwith impromptu speakers speaking from the perspective of objects thatthey are suppose to be. The session was superbly evaluated by ACS ChongSek Lee, our new member. The best table topic speaker went to Daniel whospoke as a 'handbag'.

The assignment speakers were just as captivating. We have 2 ice breakerspeeches from our new members, Paul Chan and Mark Lee who gave ussplendid details about themselves; "The Power of the Spoken Word" byDarcy Steinhardt and "Unforgettable Trip" by Tang Weng Cheong. Darcy, thebest assignment speaker, was vivid and entertaining in his presentation.
Weng Cheong aroused our interest to visit the UK with his non-manualspeech about his rotary trip there.

Finally, our invited GE from Ireland, ACB CL Michelle Coffey with her teamof evaluators sparked members on with their valuable feedback.

At the end of the meeting, surprise.surprise.3 of our non-toastmasterguests join the club without hesitation! The meeting ended with membersand guests proceeding to the Dining Pavilion to enjoy a sumptuous meal.

To members who did not manage to attend the outdoor meeting this time, ournext outdoor meeting will be at Kampar, the hometown of our lovely VPE, CCTan Mee Yee.

Best regard,

W6 Humorous Speech & Speech Evaluation Contest

Dear Fellow Members,

There were so many twists and turns days before the Area W6 Humorous Speech & Speech Evaluation Contest. First of all, there was this possibility of Lim Hin Chong not able to contest in the Humorous Speech Contest. He was under quarantine due to his colleagues confirmed down with H1N1. Things seemed to settle down on Friday morning as he completed his 7 days of quarantine.
Something happened again! At the eleventh hour that is on Friday evening, Simon Soh was unable to participate because he lost his voice. Poor Mun Yuen, she was caught in the cross fire since she was the 2nd Runner Up for the Humorous Speech Contest. For your information, Area W6 consists of only 4 clubs this term. Hence, the Champion and 1st Runner Up of each club will contest at the Area level.

I take this opportunity to salute Mun Yuen for taking up the challenge and did fantastically well to entertain the audience with her creative humour. Soo Pon, being the 2nd Runner Up for the Evaluation Contest also came in at the eleventh hour to stand in for myself as I had to stand in for Simon in the Evaluation Contest.

I am proud to announce the winners for the Area Contests as follows:

Humorous Speech Contest
Champion : Suresh Mohan [SAI Masters TMC]
1st runner-up : Suthaharan [SAI Masters TMC]
2nd runner-up : Lim Hin Chong
