April Club Meeting                                            
On Wed 3rd April we had a bumper meeting with no less than 6 speakers. Justine Crewe-Brown kicked off with a sizzling hot CC1, Neville took us on an hair raising adventure to the Antarctic with his CC4, Ruth told us a true story on how a little faith can save the day (AC2), Dawid is on roll and made us aware of how a number sequential small mistakes can have disastrous results. (CC3), Lorne entertained us with a reading from Herman Charles-Bosman and Theo introduced the members to his friend Jaques.

Melanie Steyn ran a admirable Table Topics session and had both her victims and the audience in stitches and throughout the evening Kay did a stirling job as Toastmaster of the evening and kept us entertained with her up beat sense of humour.

Early Bird Meeting                                               
On Monday 15th April there was a small turnout of 4 members... Debbie, Nick, Ruth and Claire. Debbie Satchel deliverd her CC8 regarding the growth of the African money tree, Ruth Cort a truly touching story which reminded us all to think in bigger ways.and Nick Satchel with his CC2 gave a captivating and informative speech on spiders

Everyone took on roles...and did do table topics... but since it was such a small meeting chose not to select best speakers etc of the day!

Advanced Club Meeting                                     
On Thursday 18th April the club gathered once more to enjoy an 'Advanced' meeting. Contributing to the meeting were Ruth Cort (AC5), Alana Byrne (AC3), Lorne Sulcus (AC4), Nick Satchel (CC2) and Theo Potgieter (CC6). A bumper filled agenda!  Francois Roux also took the opportunity to practice his speech for the upcoming Area Contest which we have no doubt he will do brilliantly in!

Two of our  newest members, Clint and Pamela, took on their first leadership roles as Ah Counter and Timekeeper respectively. Congrats on getting going so soon!
