The Essential Family
This is us.
We’re not strangers, we’re not enemies, we’re not just co-workers and we’re not just friends.
We had a great time at our annual meet up of 2014! The event lasted from Friday – Sunday and involved lots of alcohol, laughter and games.
Friday night saw us gradually filter in to the hotel where we would stay for the duration of the event – Shrigley Hall Golf and Country Club – of course the drinking games began almost immediately and the night drew to a close at about 4am. Yes…just a quiet drink
On Saturday morning the games began, starting with a ’round robin’ of activites, including a murder mystery, a stretcher challenge and a strategy game with wooden planks…
We then stopped for a quick dose of caffeine – much needed for some of us! Here’s where we shared the results of the first round of games.
After the break, we headed back out for three more activities – Volleyball, Laser Clays and Archery.
After all of that, we had lunch before heading to the nearby Errwood resevoir where we would carry out our final activity – raft racing!
We were tasked with building a raft from a pile of materials, including wood, rope and inflatable barrels. After building, each team chose a crew, a strategy, and headed on to the water!
not without a little accident, though!
but luckily, every single team made it across the finish line, with ‘Churton Champions’ coming in first place!
The celebratory drinks were cracked open and medals awarded.
After a much needed rest back at the hotel, we joined once again for our 3 course dinner, drinks and the night’s entertainment..
