Final Week of Staff Induction

If pushing a Landrover up a hill or wheelbarrow races were recognised as sports then the staff of 09K woud be Olympians. Proving that it isn't all work and no play on Raleigh, fieldbase welcomed home the project managers from their 5 day project planning visit adventures with 'The Raleigh Olympics.' More in keeping with 'The Banana Splits' than Daley Thompson's decatholon, the events were all undertaken in fancy dress. The theme of the evening was London tube stations, take a look.......


Queen Victoria and Holland Park


Baker Street!

 
Woolwich Arsenal


Marble Arch

We also managed to squeeze in a bit of Karaoke ...........




...............and celebrate Chi's birthday with some of Loli's famous cake!


But before all this took place everyone got busy writing up project planning reports. Fieldbase was a hive of activity as project managers returned full of excitement about their new projects and then performed skits to illustrate what they got up to. Today the host country venturers arrived and have headed off to TAC and await the arrival of the full expedition tommorow.The next blog will be up soon full of pictures of what this expedition is all about - the venturers!
