General Evaluation March 11 2015

Written by Mike,


Nepean Wingtalkers meeting March 11, 2015



  • We had nine attendees, including Hanna and Benjamin who officially joined (along with David in absentia) at the conclusion of the meeting; all agenda roles were filled in advance
  • Since the season technically starts late next week, Darryl explained his take on the meeting theme of ‘Spring Thaw’ with an anticipatory perspective, reinforced by the current brief spell of weather

Summary of roles:

  • Incoming member Hanna provided an evocative word of the day, BLOSSOM
  • Cathy’s Toast observed the joy of pending spring thaw, infusing her comments with an uncommon dose of humour
  • Mike’s Jokes covered the consequences of spring fever and snappy comebacks on a spring morning
  • Isabelle took Bill’s suggested Table Topics questions, provided a review of how Table Topics works, and led us in a round with all participating

Summary re G.E. report:

  • Mike obtained reports from Cathy (Timer), Hanna (Grammarian), and Gerald (Ah Counter) (who noted the difference in tracking for new members as opposed to longer term members)
  • Jim challenged us with a variety of Quizmaster questions
  • Mike noted the added value during Table Topics of Isabelle providing segue point/counterpoint commentary

Other comments:

  • Under Notices for the Good of Toastmasters, Darryl brought up the suggestion that during the G.E. report the presentation order be altered to shift the Timer report to third; Jim (as Area Governor) reminded that the Area speech contest is this evening, with Cathy competing in Table Topics and Gerald taking on International Speech Contest Chair
