Table Topics & Tall Tales contests to take place Sep 18th
On September 18th, we will hold the Club Table Topics and Tall Tales contests. All members in good standing are eligible to compete in one or both contests.

In the Table Topics contest, contestants will leave the room during the contest and be escorted in one by one. Each contestant will have up to 2 mins to answer the same Table Topic question, which will be given by the Contest Chair.

In the Tall Tales contest, contestants will deliver an original speech that is of a highly exaggerated, improbable nature and has a theme or plot. Humour and props may be used to support the speech. Speeches will be from 3 to 5 minutes.

In addition to contestants, we also need members to take on some important contest roles, such as Contest Chair, Chief Judge, Judges, Timers, and Counters.

If you are interested in competing or would like to take on a contest role, please inform our contest organizer.

Winners from each contest will represent Burrard in the Area 26 contests.
