Winners 6th February
On Fri 8th Feb 2019
by Karen Lee Turner
We had a full house on Wednesday, with plenty of members and a lot of guests, some who had come for their second time. Susan, the Toastmaster for the evening, chose the theme of 'Your Vision in 2019', and as part of that theme had us fill in cards with the 3 things that we, individually, want to achieve in the next 6 months, so that we can come back to them later in the year to see if we managed them. The theme was carried on with goal, motivation and inspirational subjects from the Table Topics Master Karen Lee during the impromtu section of the evening. Nine people were chosen at random, some members, some guests, and all came up with highly entertaining and inspiring tales, and a guest beat long standing members to win the Best Table Topics ribbon.
The second half of the evening was filled with 3 prepared speeches from members Jennifer, Geoff and a last minute entry from Manchester Orator Danya, with subjects as varied as Frida Kahlo, punctuation marks and it's the small things that make a difference.
Best Table Topics - Pam Rowley (guest)
Best Evaluators - Tied between Andriy Smolenko & Paul Richardson
Best Speaker - Danya A.
First Timer Ribbon - Aimee Ward (given when you complete your first ever role)
Our next meeting is on 20th February, we hope to see you there.
