The theme of the evening was ‘Trivia’ and a selection of extraordinary and entertaining trivia was served up by our Chair for the evening, LH. This was his first very impressive foray as Chair.
The introduction gave us an opportunity to serve up our own trivia or, rather controversially, reflect on what we were planning for our mortal coil post shuffling.
Ah Counter – DS, Timer – CB
Wordmaster – CLW with the word ‘cool’
DS gave us a beautifully poignant and reflective inspiration.
The prepared speeches were as follows:
Speaker 1 – TH – ‘Let’s be philosophical’ evaluated by CLW
Speaker 2 – JW – ‘An introduction to great British trees’ evaluated by EH
Our Two Minute Topics master CB offered us a choice of a selection of
folded topics in three containers marked Hard, Medium & Easy.
This approach was much appreciated by all present.
The topics included:
What do you wish you had during the course of your life?
What makes you happy?
Fear of flying
Fear of wide open spaces
Fear of needles
Fear of enclosed spaces
Where would you like to travel to?
Which other form of transport apart from a car would you consider to reach the venue?
