G’Day mate!   We had a ripper of a meeting.  It was choice!

Xiaoxin was the Toastmaster of the evening and got us all going in a great way.

Our first speaker was Karen, who gave us a birds eye view from atop the Sydney Harbour Bridge while she told us of her accidental 19 hour tour of Australia.  She packed more into her 19 hours (and her speech) than most do in 3 weeks.  Can’t wait for Karen to come back and tell us more about her travels.

Kevin was second up and told us of the extreme culture shock when arriving in the land of the long white cloud (New Zealand).  His speech was very entertaining as we were all enthralled with the simplicity of the words — but we were left shaking our heads as we realized we didn’t understand English.

Karen and Kevin both had us laughing and rushing to buy our tickets for our own adventures down under.

Our evaluators gave both our speakers some great insights on how to improve their already wonderful speeches.


We had other guests for the evening as well.  Steve , who stood in as Timer, Brian, who gave us a great table topic
