[Meeting Report ] #175 September 2
Post date: Sep 5, 2017 9:13:26 AM
Have you heard the term "tall tale"? According to Wikipedia, a tall tale is a story with unbelievable elements, related as if it were true and factual.
Then, on business, it has to be accused as deceit.
At Totastmasters, however, it is acclaimed! We even have contests concentraing only on tall tales!!
As such, first half of today's meeting was booked for our in-house "tall tale" contest, where 2 club representatives were selected for further inter-club competitions. (1st photo)
The remaining half opened with the tasting of "edible tarantula (2nd photo)" by our president.
Everyone's jaw dropped, but was quickly normalized as the great prepared speeches and their evaluations took over. (Last photo)
4 guests joined us tonight. Were the tall tales (and the tarantula) fun for you?
A meeting full of substance was followed by our customary socialization party.
