The club President, Howard Herbert opened the meeting and introduced Scott Stephenson who chaired the remainder of the meeting.
New member Ann Wickert delivered an excellent maiden speech and entertained the audience by explaining the humorous effects of her habit of procrastination on her life.
John Holian followed and his task was to demonstrate the ability to “Mean What You Say”. John compared the pros and cons of British Rail the way it was back in the days when the late Sir Jimmy Saville fronted their advertising campaign, with the current complex set up. Ultimately John thought it better to change it back to the way it was.
Mavis Cryer and Howard Herbert evaluated the speeches respectively and their comments and developmental points were both helpful and constructive.
Tim Hunter presented an entertaining Topics Session when members were asked to give a 3 minute, unprepared talk based on humorously modified book titles, such as “The 38 Steps” and “Moderate Expectations”.
Peter Ryans evaluated the topics session and the General Evaluator was Niki Boersma who gave her helpful comments on the meeting as a whole.
