February 18, 2012 Goldmine Meeting

I, unfortunately, didn't get to experience this meeting, but here is what went down on Saturday.

Joyce Preston opened the meeting as Presiding Officer and Richard Archer shared a Thought of the Day, introducing the Toastmaster of the Day, Sam Mullis. Mike Hall shared a joke as Jokemaster. Other roles filled for the day: Insook Lee as Timer, Karen Boothe as Ah Bell/Ballot Counter, and Sonny Tolbert as Grammarian/Wordmaster (word of the day: "zeal").

Table Topics Master, Matthew Charity gave three interesting table topics.
  • John Shepherd talked about the following: "Warren Buffet gives you a million dollar and you have to donate 90% of it to charities and keep 10%."
  • Kim Jackson talked about the interesting topic: "You are feeding popcorn to birds in a park and the birds ask when the movie is being shown."
  • Sonny Tolbert talked about "If you could travel in time, where would you go and why?"
 The following were the prepared speakers:
