There was more midsummer madness in the library when our Toastmaster for the evening PB used the theme of The Alternative Olympics that are held in Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys, Wales.
We were introduced to novel entries including bog snorkelling, gravy wrestling and Russian egg roulette.
Introductions were to the question: What alternative Olympic sport would you like to see?
For our invocation CLW read a short quote by Osiris.

Let’s stick together
A wing and a prayer
A leap of faith
What’s going on over there?
I couldn’t eat another morsel
Look, no wings
Only a mother could love them
