Newsletter: 31 October 2017 – Trick or treat?Posted on November 11th, 2017 by Admin in Uncategorized
On Monday 31 October we had a bumper Halloween special. Renata was our Toastmaster making us howl with laughter at Halloween word plays such as only spook when spooken to… She asked each of our functionaries the scariest thing that has ever happened to them… Our Grammarian Ana gave us “aghast” as our word for the day. Malachi as our table topics master continued the Halloween theme with questions like: what historical figure would you want to come trick or treating at the door and what would you give them?
There were spooky cup cakes awash with creepy crawlies, pumpkin lights, cobwebs… A very special thanks to Mo who pulled out all the stops to make this evening a success. And it was, with very spooky fancy dress as you will see:
Thomas faced up to his cardinal’s challenge. He was given three random words: Ryanair, Halloween and vampires. Then one minute to prepare six (ish) minute impromptu speech. He spun a web of intrigue and it was the little tiny details that made it believable. The next thing we knew, we were there with Thomas as he tried to catch his flight against the odds..
Carolina gave a beautiful speech called “Henry’s leaving do” and Zeph gave us a speech on remembering the dead and different cultural ways of remembering. Very much aligning with the Halloween theme.
Special thanks to our guest general evaluator, Yvonne from Toastmasters Grosvenor Square Marble Arch.
