District conference in Hamburg

This past weekend (Nov 20-22) our Club President Kelly Brown and VP of Education Amy S. Hamilton were able to represent the Stuttgart International Club at the District 59 Conference held in Hamburg.

First, to cover business, our club did not support the new incentive programm, feeling the incentive program gives advantages to the stronger clubs and the weaker clubs with fewer members will continue to fall behind.

The competition in Hamburg was amazing and the level of speakers outstanding. On Saturday night John Zimmer of Zurich made a sweep and was first place in both the English Table Topics and English Humerous Speech contest (which he won for the second year in a row).

The educationals at the conference both Saturday and Sunday were excellent and very informative.  There were a variety of topics and something for everyone.

Hamburg itself is a great city with a lot to see and do. It was fun to go around and see things like the Fish Market and St. Michaels church.

The next District Conference is 2-4 June in the Hague Netherlands – sign up early.

The conference hotel is right on the beach — it should be entertaining as well as educational.
