The 154th Fuchu TMC meeting was held on 3rd June.
It was really a fine day and became a little bit hot so we felt the beginning of summer.

* Induction ceremony of two new two members
New two members decided to join our club so today the induction ceremony was held before the education session. When I saw the induction ceremony, I was really moved as always.
We are looking forward to seeing new member's speech.

* Table Topics
Table Topics is a style of instant and impromptu speeches. Members can get a good opportunity to practice thinking and speaking quickly. The Table Topics master gives the audience a topic and assign a member as a speaker. The speaker MUST speak about the topic in two minutes. It's a good practice to develop quick response skills.
In this session, the Table Topics master gave us these topics as shown in below and its theme was "party."

1. When and what was your recent party this year?
2. What was your best Gorgeous party in your life?
3. What was your most strange party in your life?
Comment: I could hear a lot of speakers' interesting party experience. One speaker talked about wearing costume party. That was really fun and we would like to try it.

* Prepared Speech
Prepared Speech is a speech according to manuals published by Toastmasters International. A speaker shall speak a speech based on the objectives on the manuals.
In the meeting, we had three prepared speakers.

The first speaker talked about her pain during business trip to abroad. The cause of pain is from hard working. So she was aware the most important thing is health. Today's her speech was really splendid.
The second speaker talked about how his company's contribution to Nepal by his company's product. They tried to harder but it couldn't because of some reason. His vocal variety was so nice and we were all impressed.
The last speaker talked about impulsive thinking based on her experience. What she said today's speech is we have to take care our impulsive thinking for our decision making. I am 100% agree with her speech.

* Evaluation
In Evaluation session, the evaluators pointed out strong points of the prepared speeches and gave suggestions to the prepared speakers to make the speeches better.
Evaluators are required to have skills to listen to speeches carefully and to summarize the points in limited time. When you try this roll, it is so beneficial for you because you can learn a lot from the roll. Even if you are not assigned as an evaluator, you should imagine if you were an evaluator and what you would say to the prepared speech.

* Award Presentation
All attendees selected the best speakers for each session by voting and the MC gave the awards to the best speakers. Congratulations to all!
