An Avaricious appetite for Mojitos

If you think we're being greedy with our're right.
Clarence has made a decided break in the race for the "Word of the Year", with "Avaricious" being last nights word of the evening. It means to be greedy, and could be used in such contexts as: "Our politicians had an avaricious appetite in the arms deal"...

Jerry accepts Keiths Impromptu challenge
As for Mojitos, well, Simon enlightened us with this gem during his entertaining CC2 speech. It's an alcoholic beverage and once again some excellent story telling abilities came to the fore. Such was the enthusiasm from the audience that we may need to add it to our drinks list at the next meeting..
Ruth took us down memory lane with her rendition of Princess Di's "Response to Landmines" speech from 1997. There is clearly no end to the love and respect the world has for this icon.

Keith then took charge of the Table Topics session, and provided ample challenge to those taking part. Clearly the Masters of Toastmasters Rod, Mary and Jerry were not going to be outdone, with Mary eventually taking the title.

Mary also took home the best contribution, Simon the most improved speaker and Keith the best evaluator award.

For those with an avaricious appetite for humour, our humorous speech contest takes place on the 25th of August..
It will be held in conjunction with Golden Gavel Advanced Toastmasters at the Wendywood Club.

So bring your friends, bring your family, you may even bring your boss - just make sure he's had a few Mojitos, beforehand.
