A timer script for a delayed meeting

This submission for the script of Timer by TM William from New York is pure brilliance. It displays sharp presence of mind and wit. And it can be the perfect script for you the next time your club meeting starts late. Read on.

We started this meeting 15 minutes late. And while the General Evaluator is sure to comment upon the same later, I am here to warn you about another catastrophe in the making. Every speaker has a pre defined time limit allotted to deliver his / her speech. And if any of us violate those time limits, the overall session’s delay is set to compound. It is therefore upon each one of us to prevent this catastrophe from unfolding. Let me do my part by reminding you all about your time limits.

For the prepared speeches, the time limit is 5 to 7 minutes. At the end of 5 minutes, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 6 and red at the end of 7 minutes.

For the Table Topic Session, the time limit is 1 to 2 minutes. At the end of 1 minute, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 1.5 and red at the end of 2 minutes.

For the Speech Evaluations, the time limit is 2 to 3 minutes. At the end of 2 minutes, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 2.5 and red at the end of 3 minutes.

There is a grace time of 30 seconds after the red card is flashed each time to wrap up your speeches.

I will come back with my report towards the end of the meeting.
