Banner Wars!

Last week, River Smith's was closed for renovations, so we decided to head over to the Llano Estacado Toastmasters meeting. While we were there, we invoked a little know practice: The Banner Raid. Since we had five downtown guests at their meeting, we stole their club banner. The rule says they can regain the their banner by having five of their members visit our club.

The raid was a success! We brought their banner back to our club and sang songs to our victory! The Llano Estacado banner hung in the halls of Downtown Toastmasters.

For a week.

This week, seven Llano Estacado pirates visited our meeting to reclaim their banner. I was a great meeting and a great bit of fun.

Photo shamelessly stolen from Llano's site. They took a picture and we did not. It seems they have more photographers than we do. If only each of us Downtowners had a magical device in our pocket which takes pictures and also does a million other things. Someone should get on that ....
