Sandy Springs Toastmasters Meeting Recap for 10/11/18:
Bud Otto called the meeting to order with the Pledge of Allegiance. Bud then gave us an interesting fact about this particular day in history. Saturday Night Live first premiered on this exact date in 1975 with George Carlin as its host.

Etsehiwot Ezra, our club secretary, gave opening remarks then turned the meeting over to our Toastmaster of the day, Crystal Reeves.

Crystal filled all the roles and called on Anastasia Pass to give the word of the day. Scintillate- To give off sparks. Your speech was scintillating.

We had two guests in attendance, Ankit Patel and Kendal Mason. Ankit found us through meetup and came to our meeting to be a better public speaker. Kendal also came to our meeting to improve his public speaking skills.

Crystal called the Table Topics Master of the day, Ralston Medouze, to the podium. Before he started with his thought-provoking questions, Ralston had us vote between two themes- philosophy or modern technology. The majority ended up voting for modern technology therefore that topic ended up being the theme for the Table Topics. His questions had us give our opinions about 3D printing organs, Robo Calls, Electric Vehicles, crowd sourcing and so much more. Our guest, Kendal Mason, won Best Table Topics answer for his response to what he thought about Medicine being practiced online.

The group took a quick break and reconvened. Vishal Kharjul, our only speaker of the day, gave his icebreaker speech where he talked about his transition from India to the United States. Magdalena gave a well-rounded evaluation of Vishal’s speech.  

Vishal won Best Speaker. Magdalena won Best Evaluator.

Crystal went over next week’s schedule then adjourned the meeting.
