Gidday follow Boaters, here is the run down for meeting 894 – 27 October 2017.
By Lloyd Manson
Our Toastmaster for the day was David Clarkson and he chose the topic of ‘the Environment’ to be the main forces of the days meeting, Brett Snow was the Sergeant at Arms and David Cooper was the Grammarian – it was a great trip into the outback of Australia with a poem titled ‘The Man from Iron Back’, setting the scene with his hat, then running away at the end we never saw him for the rest of the meeting.
Our first speaker was Dion Ebrahim and the title of his speech was “Being comfortable with being uncomfortable” we all know this every time we stand up the front at Boaters.
Our second speaker was Danny de Hek, Danny was introduced by Alannah Vickery, Danny’s speech was a ‘on the spot 5-7 mins speech’ (impromptu) on what his youth was like compared to the youth of today.
The third speech was from Alanna Bogart, “Winter Joy’s” Alanna started by taking us along a trip with the whitest snow, then tangled us up with the way to dress for the -25 Deg. cold day from a parents view with dressing their kid.
Then for the ones that turned up, we had muffins and as only half the club turned up we all had 2 each.
Table topics was run by Denise Ford and Denise carried on the topic of the environment
All in all the meeting was filled with good vibes (well feed with muffins) and closed by David Clarkson and Brent Ruru wishing us all a safe week and to see as all again next week.
