Have fun, meet new people, share the Toastmaster’s experience.
The Traveling Gavel began its journey at the home club of the District Director. From there, it’s up to you and your fellow Toastmasters to help it wend its way throughout the District.
Northern Westchester Toastmasters #3797112, Yorktown Heights, NY, captured the Traveling Gavel on December 13, 2016
The NWTM Bandits #1, #2, #3 and #4 invaded Hudson River Toastmasters on December 13th. The 13th was not HRT lucky day as they lost possession of District 46 nomadic novelty known as THE TRAVELING GAVEL! Our bandits told jokes, evaluated and generally evaluated to distract HRT and steal the mobil item.
NWTM will proudly display this power symbolizing item until such time another D46 Club challenges us. Who Dares?

It all started back in the time of Regional Conferences in the summer of 2008. District 53 launched one in each of their divisions. They had so much fun with them – one club set out to capture all of them – that they made one for each district in the region and gave one to D46 at a regional conference. They did it with a lot of fanfare, beeping bicycle horns and a big monster gavel cart.
