Sergeant at arms

Division contest: Max wins !

The division F Fall contest 2011 was held in Bensheim on October 29th.

It was a very enjoyable contest for table topics and humorous speeches with participants in English and German from the regions of Karlsruhe, Mannheim and Frankfurt. The organization was perfect, and our division governor Kees Broos has done an excellent job to keep the contest on track all day.

The great news is that Max Dynin, a member of our club, has won the Table topic contest and hence will compete at the district level i.e.  he will compete against the best table topic speakers from all Europe at the next district conference in Basel, on November 25th !

We will support Max in Basel, we wish him a lot of success and we congratulate him again for this great achievement!
