The Visitor Trophy is an initiative within District 109 in order to increase the exchange and networking among Toastmasters Club members.
Each of the 6 divisions has one “Division Trophy” that travels from club to club.
If you grab a division trophy, you get additional 3 points for your club.
You can get points even if you don’t grab a division trophy. For each visit of another club, your club gets one VT point (regardless of how many members of your club visit the other club). Example: You get 1 point for the club visit + 3 points for grabbing a Division Trophy
To be fair with clubs without close neighboring clubs, you get 2 VT points (with division trophy 5 points) if the visited club is > 50 KM away (straight line between clubs) and 3 VT points (with division trophy 6 points) if the distance is > 100 KM.
In rare cases, where more than one club visits a club which holds a Division Trophy, each of the visiting clubs gets the 3 VT points for grabbing a Division Trophy. But the physical Division Trophy remains in the club which is holding it.
If you hold a Division Trophy and you get a visit from a closed corporate club, the visitor gets 3 Points for visiting a club with a trophy. But dont give the trophy to the visitor of the closed club. Reason: No one can grab the trophy from the closed club.
No VT points can be gained if you visit other clubs for contests, in the role as a Toastmasters Officer or if the same member visits the same club several times a year.
If you are dual member of Toastmasters clubs, you can get point only for one club at the same time. You decide which club shall get the points (please mention that in your Facebook post).
Where the division trophies are located and for the current ranking, refer to the tables below.
The Toastmasters Club with the most VT Points will be honored at the District Conference 2020.
The current challenge starts a the District Conference 2019 in Genova and ends on the Friday of District Conference 2020.
VT points will be added to the ranking table if you post a picture with you, the President (if not present, a Club Officer) of the visited club, a comment including which club visited which club and the club banner (if available) on the Facebook Toastmasters International District 109 Members Group with the tag ‘Visitor Trophy’, see example of Facebook post below.
How to add Visitor Trophy tag to your post is described here:
