第624回山下公園花火大会見学記念例会

Pocket

例会テーマ:「好きですか?夏。で、その理由は?」

今期2回目となる第624回例会は、23名の会員、5人のゲストを迎え7月16日に開催致しました。
前年度、16人の新会員が加わり、参加者数も20人を下回ることは稀で、会議室定員一杯の30人に達することもあるという盛況ぶり。
サイレントメンバーが必ず出るという嬉しい悲鳴を上げながら、ロールアサインに頭を悩ます日々が続いています。

さて、今回は、4人のCCスピーカーと1人のアドバンススピーカーが自分たちの実体験に基づき興味深いスピーチを披露してくれました。

 

 

The meeting # 624 was held livelily on July 16 at Hatoba-Kaikan with 23 active members, 2 pure guests and 3 OTMCM and many of them went to Yamashita-Park Fireworks festival after the meeting with 23 participants including two families.
I believe all members enjoyed both regular meeting and outing activities.
Recently more than 20 members participate regular meeting and enjoy literally their Club activities and their life as President’s slogan of this term.

Four CC manual prepared speakers and one advance prepared speaker delivered their interesting stories based on their experiences.
TM H. got amazingly the Best speaker award for the first time even it was his Ice Breaker speech!
TM Y. got the Best Evaluator award with her incredible facial expression and body language. She succeeded giving a strong impression to audience and pointed out room of improvement in eye-contact manner. It was good suggestion not only her prepared speaker, but also all audience. According her comment, she sometimes feels lack of eye-contact even speaker tried to make a good one.

Your TMOD

The 612th Meeting Report

Pocket

Hello, everyone! I am TM I, I was the Toastmaster of the day at #612 meeting and I will report the second meeting of this year.

This meeting was a big event because this was the joint meeting with Minato-Mirai Toastmasters Club. Minato-Mirai Toastmasters Club is our sister club. We make a long standing relationship with this club. So this event was special for us. We had a lot of participants and guests. The atmosphere was enthusiastic and cheerful from the beginning.  The theme of the meeting was “ We love Yokohama”. I asked members’ thoughts about Yokohama beforehand. Because the home grounds of our clubs are here, Yokohama! Yes, I heard a lot of their interesting and sweet memories, recommended places + restaurants, playing spots, whatever!

Additionally, at the Table Topic Session, TM N asked questions regarding Yokohama from various dimensions. Their speeches were so unique with lots of laughs.  Don’t miss TM T from Minato-Mirai’s joke session. Coincidentally he took the third joke master at the Joint meeting with Yokohama Toastmasters. He must be destined to be a Joke Master when he was with us!!

At the main session, prepared speeches were well prepared and planned out. We could not help but be astonished at their styles, deliveries and contents as well.  Likewise the evaluators were equally up to providing high quality evaluation sessions.  The meeting was called to order by the President of Minato-Mirai TMC and adjourned by the President of Yokohama TMC. All support roles were taken by members of both clubs. It was really harmonious!

I am sure this joint meeting of two clubs was a great success as the word of the day “collaboration, collaborative and collaborate” indicated. Our collaboration would continue after the meeting…well, not just at the drinking party!

The 603rd Meeting Report

Pocket

Greetings Everyone,

As contest chair I have enjoyed a very good experience. This time, I tried to communicate with the contest SAA by using a mobile phone. It was very convenient to call the contestants in at the right times. Adding the names to the Participation Certifications and winners to the Award Sheets were made much easier by pasting pre-printed names.

We would like to thank Toastmaster Taketomi as contest SAA., contestants, staff and all participants, thank you very much.

*** The comment from GE ***

The joint meeting of Yokohama, Yamato Bilingual, and Kanagawa TMC was held on Jan.25th. On this time we had a very precious and marvelous opportunity that many splendid Toastmasters from each club got gathered and collaborated to try this unprecedented attempt.

TMOD is TM S.T. from Kanagawa TMC, which was the host club of this joint meeting. Despite such a huge meeting, she provided us with best-suited venue and she also managed the all of progress in the meeting very well.

In the beginning of meeting, we had a special table topic session. Table topic master was TM T.N. from Yamato Bilingual.
On this time, 3 representatives from each 3 club competed each other. As a relay style, we could enjoy this irregular very thrillingly. From our club, TM A.T, TM M.K. and I, TM T.S. participated in this session.

In the prepared speech session, Japanese and English speeches were held at the same time. Japanese speakers were TM S.W. from Yamato Bilingual TMC, TM Y.S. and TM M.S. from Kanagawa TMC. English speakers were TM K.T. and TM M.T. from our club, and TM A.E. from Yamato Bilingual TMC. I was fascinated by their very energetic and originative speech. Despite unusual environment, all speakers delivered their speech very confidently and inspired entire of audience.  Each evaluator also gave appropriate feedback and encouraged speakers very well, with giving them good suggestion for improvement.

 The best speaker was TM M.S. from Kanagawa TMC.
 The best evaluator was TM M.K. from Yamato Bilingual TMC.
 The best table topic was Yamato Bilingual TMC.

We could also learned a lot from two workshops of TM S.K. and TM R.K. They gave us many new beneficial ideas to be much better evaluator and to make much better speech.

Overall we all member could really enjoy this new excellent meeting. It was great pleasure for me to work as a general evaluator.

2014.01.18

*** The comment from TMOD ***

Dear Members and all people who see this article, Good morning, good after noon, and good evening.

Thank you so much for staying at Doll House on 3rd Sat. Jan.

It was little bit different meeting from regularly because all members who attend the meeting take role of one drama.

The management of YTMC Food was suited the critical situation, and we need to discuss a lot of things.

The way of the meeting is to solve the problems, and find the way which make the YTMC Food keep it’s business.

It may little bit tough to find the details of the situation, and some member may feels uneasiness, but how pleasant, every member support the meeting positively, and no one break it.

The discussion under serious problem -Food Poisoning- went smoothly, and a lot of good ideas were found, for example, YTMC Food should try to sell chicken etc.

I believe all members who attended the meeting got not only the skill of impromptu speech, but also find the way of team work under serious situation without much information.

Thank you so much again, and if you are interested in the way of this meeting, please let me know.

We can share the plan/proposal and evaluation.

TM R.K.


TMOD, Chief Executive Offcier, Good Job!!


Chief Operating Officer, so serious!

The 562nd Meeting Report

Pocket

*** The comment from GE ***

2013.12.21
(YTM = Yokohama Toastmasters Club / MTM = Musashi-kosugi Toastmasters Club)

The 562nd YTM regular meeting was held on Dec. 21th.
Today’s meeting was the last meeting in 2013 and special meeting, which was Joint Meeting with Musashi-Kosugi Toastmasters Club!!

It was a very big meeting and there were more than 50 people in the meeting room with some guests.

The meeting was started with Call to Order by President of MTM.
For Today’s supporters as Grahco, Timer Vote Counter, 2 members were assigned in each role, 1 for YTM and 1 for MTM.  Many of them haven’t met before but they worked together very well during the meeting.

Today’s Word of the day was [feast].(ご馳走・御馳走する)Feast!! What’s a great word during this holiday season!! The word made me hungry in the meeting….

Before a regular session, we had a small workshop hosted by TMOD. We made small groups with 4~5 members and introduced ourselves and ask questions about memory of 2013 and own vision and objective of 2014 etc. Through this workshop, we were able to relax and know the member of MTM. That was a great session!

Joke Master was conducted by TM N.S and he picked up some characters from Star Wars movie and gave us very unique lines of those characters in the movie story. Good job!

Table Topic Session was conducted by TM T.T and she gave us 5 very interesting questions related to our own memory and experience of 2013, New Year and Christmas.
After her Table Topic session, there was Table Topic Evaluation Session’, which is original session of MTM.  Table Topic Evaluator of MTM gave great evaluation for both TM T.T and five table topic masters.
For YTM members, it was good experiences to have ‘Table Topic Evaluation Session’!

Today, we had 6 prepared speakers, 3 from YTM and 3 from MTM. All speeches were well-prepared and each speaker gave us very interesting and inspiring speeches!  TM T.N’s speech was about the love history of Kamakura Era.  TM A.T finished his last speech on CC manual, which is project #10. Congratulation TM A.T!!  He gave us a wonderful speech about his experiences with his parents. TM H.A delivered an inspirational speech about her experience in high school and how to overcome her bad experiences. We all enjoyed very much their individual well-organized speeches!!
Unfortunately, two of six speakers were ineligible due to time excess.  We also learned again that time management is very important for TM club!!

General Evaluation Session was conducted by TM K.T (‘I’) and six evaluators did great evaluation for each speaker. Each Evaluator explained both positive comments and room for improvement. Unfortunately, two of six speakers were ineligible.  After that, I gave the general evaluation about TMOD, all supporters, Joke Master, T.T Evaluator, Speech Evaluators. As there were many Role takers which I had to evaluate, it was a big challenge but it was a great experience for me to be GE in big event!! 

Finally, we had Award Presentation and TMOD made announcements for award winners.
The best T.T master was TM B (MTM), the best Evaluator were TM O (MTM) & TM S.I (YTM), and the best Prepared Speaker was TM H.A (YTM)
Congratulation to all award winters!!

Lastly, today’s meeting was closed with Adjournment by President of YTMC.
He gave us very positive feedback about today’s meeting.
Overall, Joint meeting of MTM #229 and YTM #560 was finished successfully.
Thank you for organizing the wonderful joint meeting, thank you President and VPE!
I really hope that we’ll have a chance to have a joint meeting with MTM again in the future!

Next Meeting will be held on Jan 4th but it is TM member only.
So, for guest, please come to visit the meeting on Jan 18th!

Best wishes for the holidays and New Year!!
