[Meeting Report ] #172 July 15

Post date: Jul 17, 2017 4:14:18 AM

A colorful assortment of actions and speeches: The meeting was kicked off by the club president, YT, mimicking a famous personality (DT), quickly warming up the room atmosphere. This was followed by useful "Word of the Evening" and impromptu "Table Topics", which were in fact topical. "Prepred Speeches" this time offered an interesting combination of two fresh Project #1's and one well-seasoned Project #10. A pleasant diversity demonstrated in style and contents.

We again had 6 guests! Thanks for your interest in and time with Visionaries!

Participation in our regular post-meeting socialization party (20:00-) was sparse this time for some reason..... Guests are more than welcome to join in.
