Announcing a New Advance Toastmasters Club – WOW (Wine on Wednesdays)

Ladies and Gentlemen

There is a void in South Orange County for an Advanced Toastmasters Club that serves the needs of Wine Connoisseurs and we will fill that void with a NEW ADVANCED CLUB that will charter in July 2015:

Wine On Wednesdays – WOW!

This new advanced club has several purposes:

  • serve the needs of members to give advanced speeches
  • create additional leadership roles for club members
  • deliver educational training every month on our favorite topic = Wine
  • expand Toastmasters club membership in Division G (new members will flock to this club!)

  • Intended to be a specialty club for wine connoisseurs (non-wine drinkers are welcome)
  • Will meet once a month on the second Wednesday of the month
  • Meetings at the Rancho Capistrano Winery in San Juan Capistrano
  • There will be wine tasting at every meeting

There are 2 unique club meeting roles for this club:

  • Sommelier: at each meeting this individual will educate members on the wine selection of the month (information provided by the winery)
  • Designated Driver: assigned for each meeting, this role is required to be sure we travel safely after the meeting
