Toastmaster Rohit set us off tonight with a fantastic recount of what it was like to be MC for five thousand people at last weekend’s Diwali Festival. Well done Toastmaster Rohit!
Tonight’s bard was from Marg, a great reading which uncovered some of the truths behind old wives tales. Marg showed us how a bard can be brought to life with vocal variety and body language.
Kathy took centre stage next with her 3rd CC speech ‘Dream a little’. She wrapped it masterfully around Linda Ellis’ poem The Dash, well-and-truly delivering on her objective to inspire. Kathy really connected with her audience, challenging each of us to think about what it is that makes us feel good to be alive.
Table-topics was another good laugh, with Jan running a neat object-based session, this time based on childhood experiences. We heard about Dave’s childhood party-line phone troubles, Marg’s wooden-spoon disciplining and childhood fun unearthing pirate treasure (old bottles) with Jennifer. Along for her second visit, Emma spoke about a female doll called Gary and Ade discussed her interesting use of warehouse cork-boards and finally Ellie finished off with her Mothers Day and Fathers Day bottle-tradition.
Congratulations to Emma on her recent decision to join our club!
