Learn the Art and Science of Storytelling with the Storymasters Toastmasters Club

Cafe Sazon

4704 Columbia Pike

Arlington, Virginia 22004 Map

Event Info

The best way to add value to your content and engage people from the very start is to inject a bit of yourself to the content mix.

And the best way to do that is through your own personal stories.

But where should you start? What stories should you tell and how should you tell them to different audiences?

This is where the Storymasters Toastmasters Club can assist you. You see there are different types of stories, so your first step is figuring out which one works for you.

Story of Self: The story of self explains why you were called to do what you do. It focuses on change, and the key moments in our lives where we made important decisions that led to this great change.

What You Stand For Stories: A “what you stand for” story explains what you value and care about the most. It can describe the moment you realized that you had this value, or about the time you knew this was something non-negotiable.

Personal Vision: Every story type discussed so far deals with the past or present, but a personal vision story deals with the future. This type of story paints the reader a picture of a possible, attractive and desirable state of affairs that’s not yet realized.

Failure to Success Stories: A great plot arc for any story is the failure-to-success storyline. With this type of story, you tried something and failed in the past. But most importantly, you learned from this failure and kept trying.

Loss and Gain: In the Loss and Gain story, the teller had something in the past which he or she thought was fulfilling and was helping them achieve success. But something went wrong, or they had an experience that taught them it wasn’t right. They lose everything but then come out of it gaining even more

At Storymasters, you will learn that the best way to get your point across is indeed to tell a story.

We hope to see you at our next meeting, Saturday, 27 April 2019, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Cafe Sazon in Arlington, 4704 Columbia Pike, Arlington VA 22204.

Courageous Leadership: The 2019 District 27 Spring Conference

Crowne-Plaza Crystal City-Washington

1480 Crystal Drive

Arlington, Virginia 22202 Map

Event Info

The social event of the season, the 2019 District 27 Spring Conference, takes place the weekend of May 3-4, 2019 at the Crowne Plaza Crystal City-Washington D.C. The hotel is located at 1480 Crystal Drive, Arlington, Virginia 22202. For the lack of a better phrase, it behooves you to be there!

We know the #1 reason you like to attend a Toastmasters Conference. It’s not the great speakers on tap like the Immediate-Past President of Toastmasters International, Balraj Arunasalam, DTM; Walter Anderson from Anderson Consulting & Training; and Drew Fingall, this year’s recipient of the District 27 Communication and Leadership Award. It’s not the always entertaining District 27 Evaluation Contest and the motivating District 27 International Speech Contest. And finally, it’s not the Hall of Fame, Silent Auction, Fellowship, Stewardship, Networking and/or Culinary Ambrosia.

There is just one reason and one reason only that every Toastmaster in the National Capital Region likes to attend a Toastmasters Conference… the always touching, moving, and inspiring District General Council Meeting. Can you feel it?

The 2019 District 27 Spring Conference Organizing Committee (SCOC) is working diligently to ensure this Conference meets and/or exceeds your expectations. The Crowne Plaza Crystal City-Washington knows how to support a Toastmasters event, having hosted two previous District 27 Conferences as well as a Hail and Farewell.

The hotel’s location is in the geographical center of District 27 in Crystal City (Arlington) Virginia. The location is two blocks above ground from the Crystal City Metro Station (Blue and Yellow Lines). It’s easily accessible by car from D.C., Maryland and Virginia. You can park in the hotel garage, but we recommend you park in one of the cost-free parking garages in the Crystal City Business District and walk to the hotel. So how can you not attend?

Our honored guest, Balraj Arunasalam, is from Sri Lanka. If you are from Sri Lanka or know of someone who is (Toastmaster or not), we would like to do something special for Balraj at the Friday night event, so we need help and ideas to do this up right. So please have the person(s) contact me.

So, don’t delay! Please take advantage of the Advanced Early Bird registration at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/courageous-leadership-district-27-spring-conference-2019-tickets-55847813313?aff=ebdssbdestsearch.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!

Yours in Toastmastering…

ACTA Practice Series

Quincy Park Tennis Courts

1021 N. Quincy Street

Arlington, Virginia 22201 Map

Event Info

Looking for a social tennis opportunity in Arlington? Look no further the ACTA Practice Series is here!

What is the ACTA Practice Series?

The ACTA Practice Series is a weekly, social “drop-in” tennis offering for players who are looking to meet and play with others of similar skill levels. The “drop-in” model is more of a relaxed group tennis experience, with no pre-defined activities for each session — you are encouraged to network and make use of the time as you see fit! No partner or team needed in order to register.

What to expect:

By joining the ACTA Practice Series, you’ll have an on-site coordinator who will ensure that the courts are reserved for only the Practice Series players. The coordinator will also ensure that tennis balls are available for your use (yes, we will provide the balls!) across multiple courts for each session. Pending registration turnout, we are expecting between 3-5 courts will be reserved for each session.

Total # of sessions: 5 (one per week; 5/09/2019 through 6/06/2019)

Location: Quincy Park Tennis Courts
1021 N. Quincy Street, Arlington, Virginia 22201

Day/time

We have two different levels: Novice level 2.5-3.0 (C-level) to Intermediate-Advanced 3.5-4.0 (BC level). The Novice level will be held Thursdays from 7-8:15 p.m. and the Intermediate-Advanced 8:30-9:45 p.m. In case of rain out, plan to play following Mondays until 6/10/2019. If make-up sessions are still owed after 6/10/2019, plan to play following Mondays and/or Thursdays (same time and location) until 5 sessions have been reached.

How much tennis experience do I need?

Novice level: This ACTA Practice Series is best suited for players who consider themselves a rookie (2.5-3.0 level). Some prior tennis playing experience is recommended. If you are already in the ACTA C League, this series is a perfect opportunity to meet and practice with other players within your league level.

Intermediate-Advanced level: This ACTA Practice Series is best suited for players who have experience playing competition. Players that can hold a rally consistently with pace would be best suited for this level.

Playing Format: It’s up to you! Feel free to rally back and forth, engage in friendly match-play (doubles or singles, depending on how many players show up) or participate in a live-ball game.

What NOT to expect:

Tennis instruction (1-on-1), keeping scores after friendly match-play, team captains, or coordinator-led activities.

Inclement weather policy: Coordinator will notify the participants by 5pm that day latest, if the session will be postponed. If postponed, make-up sessions will be held the following Monday or Thursday, same time and same location.
