It was time to have a normal meeting for the Gavel family after having a series of themed meetings. 166th Gavel meeting was held at Postgraduate Training Room in the 3rd floor of the ENTC Building on March 21st, 2013, from 5.00 p.m. onwards. The President commenced the meeting and everyone stood up for the national anthem.
Toastmaster was Charith Akalanka, an enthusiastic member of the club. After introducing the role players, the round robin session commenced. The toastmaster stated that he would not give an introduction to the topic and he invited the audience to tell whatever comes to their minds when they hear the word “Maththala”. This session was full of humor.
Then it was time to have the table topic session. Imesh Prathiba, another emerging active member in the club played the role of table topics master for the first time in his gavel story. A good set of topics were displayed and everyone came forward to express their ideas. After the evaluators’ reports, control was handed over to the toastmaster. Since there were no prepared speeches, the toastmaster handed over the Gavel to the President. The meeting was adjourned by the President.
