PERPETUAL MOTION

Steve Green led our first meeting in October as Toastmaster and with his physics background set the theme as motion, regaling us with Newton’s three laws of motion. This was picked up by Michelle Baker who invited members and guests to relate their favourite experience of a journey or of being at rest. Over the next few minutes we were transported to every corner of the world, with tales of wonderful and not so wonderful trips by every mode of transport imaginable.

Georg Wilkinson was our Grammarian and set the word of the evening as ‘Oxymoron’ a phrase consisting of apparently opposite meaning words, while Michael John Smithson ably talked us through the timing protocols.

There were only two speeches - Jewels Carter with her number 3 speech - Elixir, held us in suspense as she described a wonder slimming drink, which was affordable, safe and abundant with no side-effects before revealing this magical liquid was none other than water.

John Tunstall speaking from the advanced manual on Storytelling led us on a personal journey when he conquered his fear of heights in a hot air balloon over the Masai Mara game reserve.

After a slightly longer networking break we resumed for evaluations from Keith Oliver, who used the acronym SOLENT to commend and recommend Jewels on her speech, while Mark Perrin  evaluated John’s speech using the more familiar three things I liked, two points of improvement and what I liked best model.

John Webber than led the Table Topics asking members to speak on whatever came into their heads when handed an item. Steve Green started with some elbow guards, Jewels Carter described life as a chair, Adrian Reed, given a tent, spoke of holidays in the New Forest, George Wilkinson described life as a cat in his household, Mark Perrin led us on a fantastical journey underground with a head lamp, and Pat Tunstall described life from a relative’s perspective.

George Wilkinson reported on the use of language and the word(s) of the evening, before Susy Matthews evaluated the Table Topics. Michael John then reported back on the timings, before Gavin Meikle gave a rounded evaluation of the whole evening.

In a surprise result we had a three way tie for Evaluator, with Mark Perrin, Michael John Smithson and Susy Matthews sharing the accolade. Mark Perrin took best Table Topic and John Tunstall was best speaker.
