It's all yadda yadda this, I propose that and let's vote on the other.
Well, that's how Leicester Sharks committee meetings used to be until the introduction of...SUGAR.
The committee was astonished to discover on Monday night that the simple introduction of glucose-fructose syrup to the agenda, transformed the evening entirely.
The neurons were firing, the synapses were, err, synapsing and proposals were being passed left, right and centre.
There was even a moment when an unfortunate typo prompted hilarity and possibly irreverence. (Thankfully that bit wasn't minuted.)
The only thing the sugar didn't do, was make the meeting shorter.
It went on for nearly as long as Ben Hur, but somehow the treats, two new recruits (mwah ha haaa) and talk of the committee xmas meal made the time fly by.
Well, at least dawdle by a little quicker than usual.
There was time for a photo of us all enjoying the meeting, (see above), orange juice, flapjacks, mini rolls (see below) and even cookies.
Some exciting new proposals were discussed, there was a cheer at some lucrative news for the club (more on that later) and the raffle prizes we're collecting for the upcoming Club Champs are going to blow your verruca socks off. Stay tuned...
We are always on the hunt for new blood, so if you'd like to join in the awesome fun of committee meetings, help take strategic decisions for Leicester Sharks swimming club and feel instantly more worthwhile in life, then please get in touch.
