On August 30, Cranbrook First Toastmasters hosted the third annual Tall Tales contest.

In the blustery weather at the gazebo at the Grouse Mountain campground in Yahk, four contestants went head to head telling their tallest tales.

Witches reigned supreme in Kathy’s tale of growing up in Nova Scotia.

Garbage Goop stole the campers and the day in David’s story of how he saved the world from the garbage slime that is at the bottom of the garbage bag.

Roberta’s ghost tried to change how parliament does their job until someone said there are not such thing as ghosts.

Amanda weaved a tale of intrigued about how she landed an airplane filled with air cadets when surprisingly both pilots passed out.

Amanda’s story took the day and the first prize. Congratulations, Amanda Bott.

The day was rounded out with a potluck lunch that boasted a savoury cold smoked chicken breast and the best fudge on the planet. You should have been there. Well, maybe next year. Start formulating your story now so you are ready for the 4th Annual Tall Tales contest hosted by Toastmasters in the area.
