Yvonne our dynamic Toastmaster encouraged us to use the word musings and Glen as grammarian gave anticipate as the challenge word. Igniters were anticipating to see who used the words the most!

Tall Tales Contest
Contests are an excellent way to step outside of your comfort zone and grow your skills. Many of our members have stepped up with the help of mentors and greatly benefited.
Nandini shared tips from helping as a Circle of Gold evaluator at a Tall Tales Workshop.
* Take an ordinary situation (getting stuck in traffic, getting lost) and write your personal story.
* Make it into a Tall Tale - add lots of exaggeration! Alliteration. Puns.
Eg ran 1 mile. Change to ran 1000 miles. Make everything much bigger!
* Tall Tale Timing 3 - 5 minutes. Must be mostly an original story.
* Enter club Tall Tale Contest in the fall
