Competition Time At Camden Town Speakers Club

by Robert Tyson, President on January 15, 2014

Our next three club nights (beginning with Tuesday 21 Jan) will be a bit different…

That’s because we’ve entered competition season!

We want to put a member forward to represent Camden at the London area finals on Saturday 22 Feb in each of the following fields:

  • Topics
  • Speech
  • Evaluation
Win the area competition and you could potentially be going all the way to the National finals – a fantastic feather in your cap!

To do this, we’ll give over part of the next three evenings to our own in-house club competitions to see who represents the club in each of those disciplines (and we’ll do them in the order above, too).

I’d encourage EVERYBODY to get involved in this, starting next Tuesday with our in-house Topics competition.

Just doing so under the glare of competition, however small it may be at this stage, will improve your skills.

I’ll explain more next Tuesday 21 Jan, but in the meantime please take a look at the Judge’s mark sheet for the Topics competion so you can get an idea of what you need to do if you’re to succeed. And at competition level, the topics are for THREE – not two – minutes, by the way!

Look forward to seeing you on Tuesday from 7pm at the London Irish Centre.

Best wishes,
