Well, not quite. After the third club that I visit today, I will have the credits that I need! All of these extra Toastmasters clubs that I’m visiting is part of my initiative to earn an extra cell phone charger.
This is part of the “Reach out and Recharge your club Challenge”, a marketing initiative to get other members to visit other clubs in order to earn a free cell phone charger. I learned about this at a DEC meeting and have taken action ever since. The promotional period is from April 1st to June 30th. It works like this:
- Visit 5 clubs between April 1st and June 30th, 2016 (you must not be a member of the clubs you visit).
- Complete the visit form on the back of this page – having a member/officer of the club you visit sign.
- Turn the completed form in to a District Officer at the Spring Conference or one of the summer TLIs and you’ll receive a portable power bank for your cell phone.
Now, wait a second! How can I have the credits for a cell phone charger if I only visit three clubs? Don’t I need to visit five? I would as a normal member, but this is where the fine print comes in. The fine print reads that Area Directors can participate by completing 100% of their spring club visits and filling their visit report timely and visiting 3 additional clubs.
After today’s club meeting (which will be at noon), I will have visited my three additional clubs, in addition to having already completed all the other requirements. While I already have a cell phone charger, it doesn’t hurt to have a spare. Having that said, I now need to finish getting ready…
Muse: Sssssssssss!!!! I say that you ARE ready! Ready to die!
And I say that you’re ready to be bound in a powerful forcefield until this day is over. Since it’s not the “Day of 666”, your power is greatly weakened.
Muse: Sss…It’s not?!!
Well, look at the fine print! It’s “Day 1066”, not “Day 666”! Now into your forcefield! One Privilege, ENGAGE!
And remove yourself from my presence! Begone, evil Muse!
Muse: Ssss! You will pay for thisssss-sssss-ssss-ssss-sss!!!!
*Muse vanishes in a dark crimson cloud of smoke*
I am not going to tolerate an evil Muse for a day. I already had enough trouble during days 601-700. I don’t need any more of this.
With my Muse safely bound in her forcefield, I will now end this entry. Free cell phone charger, here I come!
Today’s high is going to be 65 degrees and the silver lining is visiting another Toastmasters club.
To those of you who love networking with different people, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.
Muse: Sssssssssssss!!!!! I sssshould’ve usssed the perssseption filtersss! He will certainly pay for thisssssssss!
