Check this definition "Proving Ground"
Apply it to the dozen people that showed
up for July 2nd's Toastmaster Meeting ...
and you have an image of what happened.
The environment set by Alan (Magee) and
Anastasia (Pass) allowed and encouraged
everyone to practice

whether it is a vehicle to improve speaking.
Even the crashes were fun. If you missed it,
catch the next installment - by resounding
acclamation, there will be another installment -
and if you were there, help plan the next one.
