145th Gavel meeting

At last, a Gavel Meeting! After almost 4 months of boredom! It was like a rain drop in a drought to see getting an invitation to the 145th Gavel meeting. Everyone seemed very excited about the chance they got to meet other fellow Gavellians. 

It was indeed a great day to have the gavel meeting since it’s world forgiveness day. Though the meeting was not crowded as usual, it turned out to be one of the most exciting meetings we ever had. 

Roles for the day were as followed.
Toastmaster – Sirimevan
Table Topics Master – Chandima
General Evaluator – Damith
Ah counter – Nirmal
Timer – Raja
Grammarian – Amila
Table Topics Evaluator – Pasan
Prepared Speech Evaluator – Niles

Table topics session was exciting than a roller-coaster ride. Fun-filled informative speeches flooded the stage. Talented speakers kept the session alive and frisky with their wonderful speeches.
Later, the meeting was embellished by Kennedy with his 6th Speech ‘I have a dream’. He carried a very profound meaning throughout his speech; Don’t be afraid  to follow your dream.

Before concluding the meeting, Gavellians got the opportunity to witness a session on Negotiation Skills done by Niles and Nirmal. Moreover all of us got to know a technique called “Who’s triangle is it?”
