I took a copy of our local public school system's Continuing Education
calendar and selected a number of course titles, things like: Hair
Braiding--Braiding Your Own Hair, Public Speaking Level 1, Basic
Cooking for Retired Husbands, and so on.
Each table topic recipient was given a course title, and asked to
explain why s/he signed up to take that particular course.
The answers were pretty creative.

I was Table Topics Master last night at our regular club meeting. I had been the
contestant in the Club, Area and Division Table Topics Contest this year. So the
questions were the very ones which I had just faced in those three arenas!
It gave our members who could not attend a flavor of the types of question and (I
hope) gave all of them an idea that they were capable of answering the questions
without a problem and should perhaps compete.
It was very well received by everybody, and also the responses showed an
interesting spin in the answers, a different slant then we had seen at the contests.
It was great fun, especially for me, when I posed the Divisional Table Topics
Question to the incumbent Division Governor! We all discovered together that
additional time to ponder a question does not always improve the answer.
As we are in the contest cycle, contest topics are timely, give it a try .
