And so, to a packed meeting room at the Well for the annual North Bucks Humourous Speech & Table Topics Contest, expertly presided over by Carmel. With a crack team of judges from out of town, the following four speakers competed for top prize :
Mick – One Small Step for Man
Maggie – The Green Conundrum
Derek – The Night Before Christmas
Steve – Jonah & The Rails
After much totting up of sums, Maggie was declared the winner, with Steve the runner-up.
For Table Topics, the following contestants pitted their wits and quick-thinking against Table Topics Master Sue.
Roger, Harsheed, Tyrone, Derek, Lynda.
Lynda was the winner, with Roger second and Harsheed third.
Therefore, Maggie and Lynda will go forward to represent North Bucks Speakers in the Area 44 contest. This takes place on Monday 1st October at the National Badminton Centre, and support for our contestants would be warmly received.
Thank you to everybody that attended, especially all of our contestants, judges and officials. It was a fine evening with some good competition, and I am looking forward to the next one already.
