The Traveling Gavel begins each Toastmasters Year 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.
Leadership Roundtable challenged Advanced Debaters in the debate: Resolved: Toastmasters Should Go Back to a Purely Public Speaking Organization LR triumphed by just 1/2 a vote! Excellent Arguments on Both Sides! Great Fun!!

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.
