March 5, 2015: President’s Report

Stardate: 2015-03-05

This week Felicia D led us on an on-going mission to the Star Trek universe. We visited strange new worlds, sought out new life and new civilizations, and boldly went where no one has gone before.

John W gathered his away team for a visit to Table Topics. (“Dammit, Jim! I’m a President, not a Topics Master.”) Jan C bewitched us all with her tale of the holodeck. Terry H discussed the downside of transporters. Our guest, Indre, shared with us how she would keep the food replicators busy making berries. Julia S made use of the advanced 23rd century medical tricorders to discover why her cat was gaining weight. Amy G analyzed machines to determine if they were intelligent and self-aware. Jerry M used his magnetic personality to explain how in the future we will cope without pockets. Fascinating!

Kara D then shared with us from the Storytelling manual speech number three, “The Moral of the Story” with a speech entitled “Getting Yourself to Share”. Kara’s speech managed to share, and teach, and entertain (and for those of you who haven’t heard it, Kara has a lovely voice).

Best Table Topic: Jerry M
Best Evaluator: Jane F
Most Improved: Julia S
Best Speaker: Kara D

One more reminder, the Area 12 speech contest is tonight, Friday, March 06, at 6:00 p.m. at the CalTrans offices at 4050 Taylor Street in the Garcia Room 1-125. See the attached flyer for more information. Show up to cheer Mike R and Mark I as they represent Voyagers.

Away team, our work here is done. Beam us up, Scotty.

See you next Thursday,

John W
