Hi Fellow Toastmasters,
We had a fun meeting today; if you were not there, you missed an out-of-the-ordinary meeting!
Sean served as Toastmaster today.
Heather was our grammarian and ahhh-counter. Since she filled in at the last minute, she was not able to choose a word of the day, so we picked one out of our Word-Of-The-Day cards in the lectern:
Lacking vigor or interest
“Many artists continued to churn out insipid, shallow works.
I think Sean was the only one to use the word today! If you used the word today and I didn’t catch it, please let me know! We should all try to use it at least once today.
Ellen was our Table Topics Master and Vote Counter. We had a new take on the topic today, since we did not have any speeches scheduled. We had TWO people come to the front of the room and we had a small debate. One person spoke in favor of one topic and the other in favor of another. Then each had a 30-second rebuttal. It was fun! We laughed a lot over the topics. Cats vs. Dogs, Superman vs. Batman, Romantic Comedies vs. Suspense/Thriller movies; and Coffee vs Tea. Kelson won the best speaker ribbon for his topic of why Batman was better than Superman was.
We had two guests today, Cameron and Ryan. We hope to see them back next time. (I think we will)
Sean reviewed the CC and CL tracking spreadsheets with us and urged us to fill out our goals and accomplishments on them. We closed the meeting by filling out the Competent Leader and Competent Communicator tracking sheets. It will help us keep track of our goals. You can also fill them out yourself by using the below links.
See you next time!
