If  you’d like to see photos with the other contestants, please feel free to consult our weekly programme.  Here is the programme for the Toastmasters meeting of Tuesday October 10, 2017.

La réunion du mardi 3 octobre sera une soirée spéciale à notre club Toastmasters à Montréal. Nous organiserons le Concours Toastmasters du secteur 54 (division F, district 61). Ce concours est composé de concours de discours humoristiques et de concours d’évaluation.

Bien que la soirée ne sera pas dans le format standard de nos réunions hebdomadaires, c’est toujours très intéressant d’y assister. Par exemple, voici comment se déroule habituellement un concours d’évaluation de discours :

  • Il y aura un orateur cible (c’est à dire quelqu’un qui donnera un discours, et cette personne aura été choisie secrètement à l’avance pour préparer un discours pour ce concours). Tout l’auditoire aura l’occasion d’entendre le discours, incluant les concurrents (les évaluateurs) qui évalueront tous ce même discours.
  • Ensuite, les évaluateurs seront invités à quitter la salle et à prendre quelques minutes pour préparer leurs notes d’évaluation.

Bravo à tous les participants!

Congratulations to our members who competed and did amazingly well as the Division F contests.

Jessica-Ruth Racine won first place for the French International Speech Contest.

Charles Deschênes won first place for the French Table Topics Contest.

Pietro di Benedetto came in a close second for the English International Speech Contest.

For the English Table Topics contest, unfortunately there was one disqualification due to timing.  We believe that Alex Chan went overtime by literally just a couple of seconds, or otherwise he would have surely been at the podium as well.  Best of luck next time around!
