The theme of meeting #604 was Time of Troubles, a reference to the origin of Unity Day national holiday celebrated two days earlier.
We stayed true to the theme – indeed, we were in time of troubles!
- Somehow we forgot the key to our stash, where we keep food reserves for tea break, – the tea break was just a break, no tea! Additionally, there were no feedback forms to fill for speakers, so feedback had to be provided verbally.
- The third speaker, Valeria Kholodkova, ACB, ALS, tried really hard but the technology let her down and she couldn’t deliver her project.
- Due to miscommunication between the club officers, there were two Table Topics Masters!
We’ve had two speeches:
- Alexander Kanunnikov’s Ice Breaker, “The Two Stories”
- Alla Oganova’s touching story, “Sometimes Animals’ Behavior Is More Noble Than Humans’ One”
