Raise your glasses May 6, 7 and 8, 2011 in Osoyoos, BC

Osoyoos in May is a beautiful place to be.  This spring conference is an opportunity to have a great time with like-minded people. This spring conference is an opportunity to be inspired and return to your own Club with  new contacts, a fresh experience, and exciting ideas to share.

Winter is long and cold, the spring conference in Osoyoos will warm you up with smiles, and sunshine.


District 21 of Toastmasters is holding a spring conference in the south Okanagan. Really! A spring conference in the Okanagan in May, 2011.  The title of the conference is “Sages In the Desert”  The tip of the Sonora desert, about 5 hours from the rain and clouds of the Lower Mainland in BC, this location will be sublime in May. as my friends in jolly ol’ England say “that’s Quality!”

The location for your conference is the spa resort, Spirit Ridge! Check it all out ~ it even includes an on-site winery – Nk’Mip Cellars. { that native word is pronounced in-ka-meep} Sample Qwam Qwmt (“achieving excellence”) wines at Nk’mip Cellars, North America’s first Aboriginal owned and operated winery. After sipping,  you could learn about rattlesnakes and hear pow wow drumming at the Nk’mip Desert Cultural Centre.


Not only is there a winery on site, but I checked and there is a fuddle duddle amount of wineries just up the road from Osoyoos.

On my way home from the District 21 Toastmasters Spring Conference , I am going to stop at theBurrowing Owl Estate Winery (about 15 minutes drive from Osoyoos)  for some toasting refresher lessons plus wine and cheese. I just love, absolutely LOVE supporting local economy! But that’s me, self-sacrificing to the core!

This is Toastmaster’s training I can get used to! SUNSHINE, LOCATION,  and WEEKEND HOLIDAY with entertainment, and DELICIOUS food!


Are you a newbie? That is “someone who has never been to a Toastmaster’s conference”. Perfect! Whether it is a restaurant I would like to try, or holiday destination I’ve never visited before ~ what I do is ask someone else who has been there and done that.  YOU ARE IN LUCK!  I was a newbie up until November 2010 so this is just my Numero Two Toastmasters Conference I will be attending in May, 2011.

Obviously it was fun, relaxing, motivating and refreshing or I would not be doing it again so soon.


If you like to talk to interesting people, laugh often, and enjoy good food YOU WILL HAVE A FABULOUS WEEKEND, Osoyoos Toastmasters conference –  May, 2011.

Give yourself a mini holiday in May 2011 in the sunshine. You deserve a break after a cold winter. If you live already in the Okanagan valley ~ well then there is just no excuse not to go to conference like this almost on your front door ! This one is designed especially for you, and you………….and YOU!
