2012 Division D Fall Contest Report

Pocket

2012.11.04

Division D Fall contest was held on Nov. 4th near Yokohama Chinatown. There are 5 areas (I mean 22 clubs) in Div. D, and TM M.H joined this contest as a contestant from YTMC.

Fall contest is Table Topics contest in 2012. Today’s question was difficult. The question is like this
” The time has come that human being can live on the moon. You are elected the mayor for a city of the moon. But there are no constructions and public institutions. What do you want to build?”

I thought she answered this question well. But unfortunately, she couldn’t win the prize. I felt Div. D level is very high! We should practice more and more in YTMC!

In addition, I got TM M.H comment about joining the contest. Her comment is below.

It is the first time to join the contest for me.
I seemed the atmosphere of division table speech contest is quite difference from the area contest.
I could not catch all of the question due to tension and I caught just a few words, “Mayor” and “Moon”.
On this contest, I could answer this question because I had strong supporters of Yokohama Toastmasters Club.
Thank you for all of encouragement.

I would like to practice more and more to improve my speech skill.

2012 Area42 Fall Contest Report

2012.10.7

 

2012 Area 42 Table Topics contest was held on Oct.7th. There were four contestants from YTMC.
 TM N.G and TM M.H joined English contest, TM M.T and TM M.H joined Japanese contest.
And…
TM N.G and TM M.H won first place and second place in English contest!! Congratulations!

TM N.G goes to the next contest, Division D contest on Nov. 4th. Let’s go and cheer for him together! Unfortunately both in Japanese contest couldn’t get a prize, but they did real good!

In addition, TM H.A took Chief Judge in this contest. This role was very important for management of the contest. She gave her impressions of this contest to us. I posted her comment below.

Performing a new role is quite a challenge. I tried a role of Chief Judge at the area contest this fall. 
In the past, I have observed others taking this role. However, performing it is quite different from observing them. Although I participated the contests as a contestant before, I had not become very familiar with the rule book. This time, I took time to read the book and learned to appreciate how the event is put together.
I typically have tendency to dislike any rules.  However, in order for us to enjoy and to be fair for all, rules are needed. It gave me a new perspective to my life.
I encourage everyone to try new role for yourself. You may find something that you have not noticed before.

YTMC In-House Contest (English)
2012.09.15

Today we had a thrilling, exciting Table Topic Contest.

As for me, I took some roles of Chair, Topic Master
and Interviewer after a long time absence.

In-house contest, though, I felt nervous on the stage.
But to our amazing, we had 10 contestants in English and 6 in Japanese.
“Absolutely gorgeous contest”

In-house contest filled the laugh, stimulation and hotly competition.

I believed we all enjoyed Table Topic In-house contest.
Thank you, all contestants, assistants and audiences.

YTMC In-House Contest (Japanese)
2012.09.15


 横浜トーストマスターズクラブの例会は「英語のみ」ですが、今回は
インハウス コンテストなので、日本語のコンテストも行いました。

今回は 4年に一度テーブル トピック コンテスト。
お題をその場で聞いての即興スピーチです。

コンテスタントの方々は別室で待機し、自分の番がくると会場に呼ばれ
スピーチを行いました。日本語のコンテスタントは全6名。

控え室から、1人また1人と減っていき、最後の方のコンテスタントは
とても心細かったそうです。(あぁ、かわいそうに… でも仕方ない。笑)

今回のお題は、
 「スポーツの秋」「読書の秋」「食欲の秋」「芸術の秋」など、
 あなたはどんな秋が好きですか?

「スポーツや読書をがんばりたい」「おいしいものを食べたい」等々。
「秋は冬に向けての準備期間」というかっこいい話もありました。

でもやはり皆さん”花より団子”。全体的に「食欲」が多かったです(笑)
(「もっと太りたい」というのもありましたね… ウラヤマシイ… )

コンテスタントの皆さんからは「答えやすいお題だった」と好評でしたが
聞く側としても、皆さんそれぞれ個性が出ていて、とても楽しかったです。

そして最後になりますが、日本語・英語ともに、1位と2位の方々は
次のエリアコンテスト(10/7)に参加されます。

Nさん、Tさん、Hさん。YTMCの代表としてがんばってきてください。
お時間作れる方はぜひ応援に行きましょう!もちろんゲストも大歓迎!!
