CC, CL Allison B. led a meeting full of holiday cheer. TM Larry D. gave his icebreaker speech talking about the places he has been and that he is still creating the answer to "Who Am I." ACB Brian T. explained that the way Hollywood portrays sprinklers in the ceiling of buildings is all wrong; they only go off when the temperature rises to a certain degree. TM Wen K. had a lot of holiday songs and questions in store for the table topics participants, and general evaluator CC Mickey B. advised of the importance of preparing a backup speech, whether you are the toastmaster or not, to be ready to seize opportunity.
