Meetings 848 and 849

Hello Werribeeans,
Coronavirus has changed our lives in ways we never suspected. This was reflected in our meeting last night when only nine members and two guests were present.

We had a long business session with a robust discussion which Paul will report on separately.

Sahi conducted her first session of Table Topics in an efficient, calm manner. Well done Sahi! The topics were ably evaluated by Paul and Nirupama (Rupa).
There were only two speakers. Kumar gave a powerful “icebreaker” speech about the power of self-belief. Rupa gave a speech about Covid-19 with a lot of important, well-researched facts. These speeches were evaluated by Daniel and Peter respectively.
The “watchdog” reports were presented by Sahi (Harkmaster), Daniel (Grammarian and Word of the Day), Paul (Gruntmaster) and Krishna (Timekeeper) while Jacquelene ably conducted the general evaluation.

Best Table Topic Award went to Krishna, Best Evaluator Award was shared by Rupa and Peter.

On this night we also farewelled Krishna and Ramon from the club. Both have informed us that because of a change in personal circumstances they can no longer attend our meetings.
Krishna and Ramon, we wish you all the best in your future endeavours and give you both a big THANK YOU for your tremendous contributions to the club.

Daniel, VPE
