Tr .Sandeep’s 40th Birthday Bash
Our very own Tr . Sandeep Chowdary achieved a milestone in tabling terms . It was his 40th birthdayon the 26th March 2019 and needless to say we had to celebrate . He’s had quite a storied career in tabling so far with many feathers in his cap . Those who have seen him in tabling from the very beginning are well aware of his accomplishments . We happened to have our business meeting on that day and being his special day , he generously came forward to host it .
This was by far one of those meetings where we had the most fun . It was fun because it was a house meeting and we also had a good turn out . House meetings have always been fun because the atmosphere is quite relaxed and chilled out and also because of warmth that you feel in the presence of a fellow tabler’s home . We had the presence of our 41ers from club 169 also at this meeting .
The meeting had many highlights apart from discussions on the regular agenda . There was a LAPD session conducted by Sq.Leg Aanand Khara which mainly focused on games and activities . The session opened with a number game wherein tablers would call out numbers at random and if any of the tablers call out the same number at the same time , then the game would restart . This game was mainly about clarity , leadership and direction …. We had to restart the game quite often . The next game was a commonality test where tablers were asked to write down a list of all their favourites and the objective of the game was to guess the name of the tabler based on the list of his favourite things (drink ,food , music , TV Show , relative , colour , pastime , hobby etc ) alternatively tablers would be asked what is so and so’s favourite drink , food , music , TV show etc and we would have to guess what was written on the paper it is based on how well we know the tabler
This was an eye opener for us as many of us would think we know friends well but when we play games like this we realize that we need to know them better and in turn we learn something new about them
After this fun game we had 41er Aanand and 41er Deepak conduct a team building activity called JOIN . We were divided into teams where we would be given instructions like “8 ARMS , 7 knees , 1 Rs.5 coin , 1 credit card , one doctor”and as a team we had to be quick and alert in putting all this together and when we were done . We had to say JOIN . The fun part is to see everyone trying to be the team to finish first and the chaos that ensues (haha) . These three LAPD activities were a major highlight and it was so much fun and we look forward to more such activities during our meetings in the future .
Another major highlight was the Sargenting act . Tr .Vidhan was the sargent assisted by Sq. Leg Shrawan Somani and Tr. Adarsh Joshi / The act centered around the birthday boy Tr . Sandeep Chowdary where tablers were asked questions by Sq. Leg Shrawan Somani about Sandeep and his tabling career . The act was well conducted .
We had LMF recognitions handed out to Tr. Gurvansh by Sq. Leg Dharminder Singh Anand ( Novi Bhai ) , Tr. Pradyumna by Sq.leg Kiran cheruku , Tr Sritej by 41er Deepak Menda, Tr . Dr . Varun by 41er Aanand Khara and Tr . Shaad by 41er Dr . Rakesh . Tr . Shashank was recognized with a Star Performer Pin by Chairman Tr . Inder and he was pinned by 41er Aanand khara .
All in all , the meeting went off really well mainly due to active participation of all tablers . It was meeting full of laughter and a lot of fun . Twinklers Hardik and Dhruv also actively took part in the games and activities .
After we closed the meeting we had the cake cutting for Sandeep followed by a sumptuous meal with delicious dishes which were relished by everyone . A big Thank you to Tr . Sandeep and Sangeeta for hosting us . Looking forward to more fun filled meetings .
