Missed it by that much!

So it doesn’t have the same ring as “we’re #1!” But I can’t lie, I wanted to be #1!

It was the Toastmasters District 11 International Speech Contest Finals in Indianapolis on April 25. There were seven great contestants.

Congratulations to champ Gil Michelini (who now goes on to the World Championship of Public Speaking in Las Vegas this August!) and 2nd place winner Valerie Rice. It was a fantastic high-spirited contest. Kudos to District 11 organizers for the terrific venue at the Clarion Waterfront. The audience was so close and very responsive. Loved that little theater setting!
