Rob created Jeopardy Table Topics with selection rules that enabled Igniters to choose their topic and difficulty level.  We were enlightened by Toast Mastery, World Politics, Science & Technology and Life.  There are many more questions for next time!

February Open House

Tonight Chris picked the theme  "February Open House"  and encouraged each of us to bring guests to the meeting to share the Toastmasters opportunities. 
Once again our tables were full. We all enjoyed Julie's CC#9 , "What Makes You Happy and Healthy" as well as the cookies  and drinks  that Marion and Chris supplied.

Four New Igniters

Rob, one of our newer members, did an excellent job introducing Matt and Frode and helping Marion, our VP of Membership . It was exciting to hear Paul share his story before Marion lead us through the three Toastmasters Inductions.
We are pleased to welcome Ellen back to Toastmasters and are thrilled that she has decided to join Igniters.

Full House for February 2, 2016 Meeting

As the second month of 2016 began, we filled our tables with members and guests.  Our agenda ran with a full slate, which included our new members, Kenneth and Paul filling two of the positions. 
Our Toastmater Glen, expertly introduced our speakers - JianLi (CC#1), Stephen (ACB#2), and Rob (CC#4).  The speakers entertained us with totally different approaches to three diverse but informative subjects. We left the meeting with an appreciation for the clean air we have in Alberta as well as a better understanding for the problems we can have when we attend staff elevations.  Stephen's poetry presentation  took some of us back a few years with the lyrics of songs by the  Beatles and Joni Mitchell.

Great Meeting

Our meeting on Jan 26 was informative and fun.  With the theme - Movie and Theatre, many of our members and guests were able to bring the Word of the Day and Challenge Word create and composition into their Round Table Introductions.
Michael's, speech number 8,  "How to be a Foodie with a Bad Loonie" gave us ideas on how to save money on groceries as well as how to preserve the fresh food for a longer duration.  By using  props to help us understand he made the presentation very enjoyable. 
Our SAA,  JianLi and Toastmaster Nandini ensured the meeting ran smoothly while at the same time allowing each of the volunteers filling a position to complete their tasks.  With many new members taking on roles, our club is learning and sharing.  THANKS IGNITERS for another awesome evening!!

New Members for 2016

Our VP of membership Marion, inducted two new members at our meeting on January 19, 2016. We are very pleased to call Kenneth and Yvonne Igniters and look forward to their first speeches.
