Fresh and invigorated from her US and Canadian Travels, our chair JR shared the good and not so good experiences of her holiday. Introductions were to the question: ‘Tell us your ups and downs of holiday travel’
For our inspiration SR2 read ‘The Charge of the Light Brigade’ by Alfred, Lord Tennyson
We were all deeply moved.
Ah Counter – TH, Timer – CS
Wordmaster – CAW with the word ‘consolation’
The prepared speeches were as follows:
Speaker 1 – CAW with ‘Why they joined and what they achieved’ evaluated by CLW
Speaker 2 – CB with ‘To speak or not to speak’ evaluated by TH
Our Two Minute Topics master CS invited us to choose from a geometric arrangement
of face-down topics including:
If you had to wear a T shirt with just 5 words printed on it – what would it say?
Sometimes making changes is like teaching a pig to sing
What sound other than ringing would you like your mobile phone to have?
If you could travel back in time and meet one of your family members – who would it be?
What annual televised sporting event is a must for you?
Would you like to live next to a swamp or a nuclear power plant?
