Eric was playing his cards right. He was driven to get the most out of his time at a conference in Las Vegas by strategically picking his seat and ridding himself of distractions. It was a fool proof plan… until you account for humans being, well, human!
The reality of the situation and Eric’s vivid description of the scene kept the crowd laughing throughout the Humorous Speech Contest. There was no doubt his speech would take the River Speakers to the Area A3 Speech Contest.
Competing in the Evaluation Speech Contest, Andrew confidently stood in front of the club to deliver constructive criticism and complements for Eric to improve his speech before the next round. Andrew’s effective evaluation also won him a place at the Area A3 Speech Contest.
Come support our fellow Toastmasters! The Area A3 Speech Contest will be held on Saturday, March 16th at the Boise Bible College (8695 W. Marigold St., Boise, ID 83714). The briefing will begin at 9:00 a.m., contest begins at 9:30 a.m.

The River Speakers are happy to congratulate our very own member, Pam Bostic, for winning 2nd Place in Table Topics at the Area A2/A3 Speech Contest! We are always proud to see members succeed and crush their own dreams.
Pam is a shining example of a truly dedicated Toastmaster! In addition to her diligent work as the Vice President of Education, she always has a positive attitude and an impressive way with words that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Sherry Briscoe (on the left) is here presented with her Advanced Communicator Bronze award by VP of Education Pamela Bostic. Congratulations!
Sherry is a great storyteller and published author. Toastmasters has helped her enhance her abilities. She can present her stories more effectively and conduct training for other writers with skill — so that everyone in her audience comes away with the Point of the Story.
What skills would you like to take to the next level?
One of the most exciting benchmarks a club can experience is recognizing a member’s achievement. At our June 22, 2017 meeting, we were proudly of one mind in congratulating Robin O’Neill as she received her Advanced Communicator Silver certificate.
As Sherry Briscoe, our VP of Education noted, this means that Robin has presented a minimum of 30 speeches. Thank you, Robin, for all you’ve contributed in sharing and growing with us.
