Dear friends and guests of Hamburg Power Speakers,
Wow what a great charter it was! In total we were about 50 people, with Toastmasters from Bremen, Lübeck, Stade, Buxtehude, First Hanseatic, Hanseredner, Guests and of course Hamburg Power Speakers who found their way to us thanks to our invitation team who sent out invitations well ahead of time.
The placement of our banner and the nicely decorated room made the venue really inviting.
I would like to take this oppotunity to thank all that made this night such a memorble one. One key to the success was that it was all well organized through the organization committee. An event like this cannot happen overnight, the wheels start rolling weeks ago, and we have been fortunate to have been backed by such a motivated team of volunteers.
During the Demo-meeting we heard inspiring speeches, fishy table topics and fun 10 second speeches. It was all topped off with a great show of our evaluation concepts in the club.
It was a great evening with great food, creative games and extraordinary announcement jingles. There were many laughs and especially we remember Dennis’ struggle with the loud party poppers at the opening of the buffet.
It is difficult to thank everyone and not forgetting anyone, we all deserve praise for contributing in different ways.
A special thanks to Henning from Stade Toastmasters, our great Magician who brightened up the evening! And thankyou for the Dancing queens (and Kings) that rocked the dance floor.
It was a privilege to moderate this evening and I hope that the coming year will continue in the same spirit! We are looking forward to continued growth and hope we can be an inspiration to other Toastmasters. And as Jim concluded in his speech, if we keep this up, we’ll soon have new Toastmaster Clubs in every corner of Hamburg!
Hope to see you soon at one of our future meetings,
