Our theme for introductions was ‘Fake News’. Our chair DM guided us in his usual
relaxed manner through the evening’s proceedings.
Lot’s of humorous quips and a general air of jollity was enjoyed by all.
We welcomed our guests SC and SG, hope that they enjoyed the evening and look forward to seeing them again soon.
CLW announced his forthcoming 80th birthday and we enjoyed a slice of cake during the break to celebrate this happy event.
Our best wishes also to SC who is tying the knot this coming Saturday!
Ah Counter – CB, Timer – JW
Wordmaster – CB with the word ‘innuendo’. This word was used quite well by
the members and was slipped in on several occasions.
For our inspiration JR read her poignant self-penned ‘Margaret’s Poem’
The prepared speeches were as follows:
Speaker 1 – CLW – ‘Doing the Washing’ evaluated by JR
Speaker 2 – SC – ‘The Groom’s speech’ evaluated by SR
Our Two Minute Topics master JW asked us in turn to pluck a topic from
a mug. The topics included:
If you could go back in time and talk to you as a ten year old – what would you say?
If you could change one event in history, what would it be and why?
If you could do one dangerous thing without risk – what would it be?
If you could travel back in time to meet a family member, who would it be and why?
If you could go back in time and chose a different career, what would it be?
If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be and why?
If you could fly in a hot air balloon, over which city would you choose?
If you could change places with anyone, who would it be?
