Toastmasters

*Just as background: a friend and I attended a Toastmasters club meeting a few weeks ago to see what it was all about and whether or not it was for us. After the meeting (9:30 am on a Saturday!) we decided to try a few other clubs out as well to see what they were like.*


So, the Toastmasters club we went to tonight is out! It's to bad, the location and time is great for us unfortunately, the club dynamic is not really welcoming to new comers. To be frank, they seemed shocked to see us show up at the door (which is what we were told to do at the last club we went to) and even more surprised that we wished to observe the meeting. Granted, this meeting was a club competition, not a regular meeting, but still. More than 3 people could have talked to us!

Definitely will try other clubs though as this is something I really wish to pursue. There are a couple on Mondays and Thursday nights that we can check out still but, if you made me chose one right now, I'd be at the one on Saturday mornings, 9:30 am as they were the friendliest and most fun.
