Meeting 25th May

On a damp dreary May evening our Toastmaster JD was a breath of fresh air and managed to keep the slightly boisterous members in check. A wonderfully chaotic evening!
The theme of the evening was 1966 and introductions were to the question:
‘What was special about the year you were born – or indeed 1966?

It was good to see guests NL & TP. We hope they enjoyed the evening and
look forward to seeing them again soon.

For our invocation CLW read a poem entitled ‘Wishing Stars’

Duties: Timer – DM,  Ah Counter – CAW
Wordmaster – PB with the word ‘fortitude’

The prepared speeches were as follows:
CLW with ‘A tumble to fortune’ – a modern fable

Our Table Topics master, JO posed various random topics including:

An alien spaceship lands in your garden – what would you do?
Is it better to speak your mind or show restraint?
You’ve been given a time machine – which year would you choose to visit and why?

Is it ever ok to cheat?
