    Thanks Mathew. You worked hard for the day.

  2. It was the first meeting I saw LIVE! It was indeed a great feeling. Well done Mathews.

    I urge everyone no matter what position you hold or how important you are to please follow the Toastmasters rule on timing. It is the reason we have a Timer with a stop watch, a light signal and a bell. It just shows how important it is to keep time! Yes agreed it was informative, blah blah blah… but please do all of that in the time specified.

    Anyways it was a splendid meeting with an all round performance by ever member.

    Well done Muralee for the Tags.
