So it was time to let our hair down and hit the town and get to know our new staff members a bit more.
We started the evening with a trip to 10 pin bowling. The evening started off well with a few gutter balls and the occasional strike, which may or may not have been a fluke. Coming up to the half way mark everyone was on a pretty even score with Lucy and Alana starting to inch ahead. As the fun continued, and a few more gutter balls were bowled, a unanimous decision was made to put the “bumper bars” out on both lanes to improve everyone’s scores a little. At the end of the game there was a good spread of scores with Lucy winning with a score of 97, Alana coming a close second with 88 and Jan scoring 81. Sequoia, Judy, Andrea, Lena and Lindsay followed up on the leader board.
We followed up the game with a lovely meal at the Lonestar, where we all proceeded to eat, drink and laugh the night away. We had the presentation for the bowling where Lindsay was awarded the “not so booby” prize of a nice bottle of Shiraz.
Overall a great night was had by all, and we are looking forward to the next shin-dig in August.
