On a late August evening, pleasantly cooler than our Bank Holiday scorcher,
our Chair JR guided us smoothly and effortlessly through the evening.
Her theme for the evening was Dogs and other animals.
Introductions were to the call: ‘Tell us about your dogs or other animals?’
For fill-in material there were lots of humorous quotes and jokes based
around dogs. A good time was had by all.
Ah Counter – DM, Timer – CS
Wordmaster – CLW with the word ‘pickle’
For our inspiration CS read a poem called ‘Dust if You Must’ by Rose Milligan.
The prepared speeches were as follows:
Speaker 1 – SR – ‘The Joy of the Journal’ evaluated by LG
Speaker 2 – CAW – ‘Audience Rapport’ evaluated by DM
Our Two Minute Topics master SR let us choose from a random selection
of topics including:
An enjoyable film
A great way to travel.
How do you relax?
A piece of music that is special
A place to swim
Best place for a Full English Breakfast
A place to take your grandchildren
My great idea…
