Sherlock Holmes discovers two speakers in the making

Transformers Toastmasters
Nolwazi & Lerato welcomed
With Keith Bowen taking the stage as Toastmaster, and Sherlock Holmes being the topic for the evening, the Word of the Evening couldn't be anything other than "elementary". You might say this word described last night's meeting as both speakers presented their Icebreakers, and acquitted themselves extremely well in the process!

Our president, Mary, inducted two of our newest members, Lerato and Nolwazi, just so they really felt they belonged before they presented their CC1 speeches. Lerato told us all about her and her bossy three-year-old son and Nolwazi gave a different slant to the usual icebreaker in telling us of the three women who'd had most influence on her life.

During Table Topics Mary led us in creating the Transformers version of "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle" - I'm sure if Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had heard it, he would have turned in his grave. To this minute, we're still not sure what exactly was in those two sacks… and did the blue carbuncle refer to an abscess or a gemstone???

Keith walked off with the Best Contribution award - no small wonder!!!

Join us for our last meeting of the year on Monday 8 December.
Our end-of-year bash will be held on Saturday 13 December - rumour has it this will be quite a party so don't miss out!
