Your corrections to these posts will be greatly appreciated.

We welcomed Patrick Miller, Nicole Nowezki, and Deb Barberlin who visited us the first time.

Table Topics Master Rob K. asked the following question to each of the five contestants:
President Obama addressed the congress last night and discussed the pending budget. One item discussed was the economy. The question I have for you is – Do you feel the economy is in crisis, have you been directly impacted by the economy and what suggestions do you have to improve the economy?

Jim H. won the contest and Jack C. took second place.

Jim H. will advance to the Area 22 Table Topic Contest on March 11. Jim will compete against Land O'Lakes Buttermasters, and Shock Rhythm And Talk clubs.

Congratulations Jim!
