[Meeting Report ] #181 December 2

Post date: Dec 3, 2017 4:50:08 AM

It was as if we had been abruptly brought back to early 2000's: Our meeting started with excercising that phenomenal workout program, "Billy's Boot Camp"!!!

Needless to say, we, 6 guests for tonight included, did it with absolutely no compromise. (First 2 photos)

While still out of breath, we immediately went on for our meeting with absolutely no compromise.

For Table Topics, a series of inspiring questions on Robots and AI met with equally thoughtful responses.

Prepared Speeches tonight offered quality and diversity, individually as well as collectively.

One of the guests, KK declared to join our club tonight. Thank you, and our warmest welcome to you!

Our post-meeting socialization was well done as always till late.
