2017 Q3 Team Building Event

Over the weekend we had another little team building fiesta in Slovakia.  We basically rented a summer camp at Záruby, which is the highest hill of the Little Carpathians, near the village of Smolenice.  It's about 60 km (37 miles) from Bratislava and 25 km (16 miles) from Trnava.

While some people came out for just for the day, most people spent the night and everyone was assigned to various cabins.

The festivities started out with a goulash soup lunch and mingling.  A quick speech and then people were broken up in to teams followed by some pretty interesting group challenges.  Lots of good humour.

Later on there was some grilling, some home made palačinky, plenty of slivovice (and some Hungarian pálinka).  Plus some games, a DJ, a bit of dancing, and lots of overall fun.

The organising team did a fantastic job!  It was great to get people together for some fun outside of the office.

I was one of the "old" people who turned in early for the night.  Maybe around 11 pm.  But I understand that the merriment went on to around 3 or 4 in the morning.

On Sunday morning, a group of us did a short 20-minute hike to Jaskyňa Driny to explore the cave before the drive back home.
