INTERNeX QuiZ NiGHT Review!

Yesterday we had our INTERNeX Quiz NiGHT at the Moose’s Down Under sponsored by Taxback.com! The night started at 8 pm, when slowly the candidates were coming into the bar. When everyone was there, we started to divide everyone into teams. All the teams had to come up with their own team name. My team name was for example: Denemex (Denmark, Netherlands and Mexico). When all the teams were ready we started the quiz! The first round was the picture round – we had a paper with famous people and we had to write down their names on the answer sheet. The second round was ‘general knowledge’. The third round was a movie round with only questions about well-known movies. Finally, the last round was all about music! The questions weren’t easy, but we were battling for an amazing price – 150 dollar bar tap!!

While the jury was counting the points, we were discussing all the questions and we having a nice chat with each other. After a few minutes they were ready to announce the winner! The winners of the $150 dollar bar tap are….. Christian, Bart, Roy and Elvera!! Congratulations to you all, you deserved to win with 43 points!

It was a really nice PuB NiGHT last night and I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did!! We will see everyone next Wednesday again :D. If you would like to see more pictures that were taken yesterday, go to our Flickr-account.

Cheers,
Claudia

Congratulations to our Jasper Group!

Congratulations to our 15 Czech Republic participants that have just arrived safely in Jasper! Here you can see four of the girls that have just arrived and who just sent us this picture. The group was all hired at our annual Czech Republic job fair after we flew our hotel partner over to The Czech Republic to interview more than 40 people.

Working as servers, housekeepers and horse-trail guides, all of the candidates will be in Jasper for the summer – and some may even stay for the winter season as well. Did you know that INTERNeX holds job fairs around the world? Many job fairs are scheduled for next year in Germany, Scandinavia, Czech Republic, Switzerland and The Netherlands.

If you would like to know more about INTERNeX programs and how YOU can spend your summer working in the beautiful Canadian Rockies, visit our websites www.internexcanada.com and www.internexnewzealand.com.

Good luck everyone up in Jasper this summer!

Farewell World

After seventeen glorious days of top athletic competition, Canada says congratulations and goodbye to the world’s top winter athletes and what better way then through a light-hearted Closing Ceremony that poked fun at all of the Canadian stereotypes. The spectacular ceremony full of pomp and circumstance and a tongue-in-cheek homage to Canadiana featured giant inflatable moose, dancing maple leafs and countless other amusing content.
The Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, which featured more then 2,600 Olympians was filled with thrilling athletic achievements and rousing displays of patriotism never seen before in such huge masses. The Canadian ‘own the podium’ program has been rightly justified as the country ended with the most gold medals EVER WON at an Olympic Winter Games. With an astonishing total of 14 GOLD MEDALS, ranking us as 3rd in the total medal count. There is no denying that Canadian athletes have achieved an entirely new level of excellence so we will now take the time to honor all those that made it to the podium…

1) GOLD to the Canadian men’s ice hockey team… Way to go Crosby!
2) GOLD to the men’s curling team
3) GOLD for Jay Anderson in the men’s parallel giant slalom
4) GOLD for the men’s team speed skating pursuit
5) GOLD to the men’s short track 500m speed skate relay
6) GOLD for Charles Hamelin in his 500m short track speed skating race
7) GOLD to the women’s ice hockey team
8 ) GOLD to the women’s pair bobsleigh team
9) GOLD for Ashleigh McIVOR in the ladies freestyle skiing event
10) Solid GOLD for the ice dance couple, Scott Moir & Tessa Virtue, for their majestic figure skating performance
11) GOLD for the men’s skeleton champ, John Montgomery and his infamous pitcher of beer…you deserve it buddy!
12) GOLD for Christine Nesbitt who dominated the ladies’ 1000m speed skating event beating her Annette from the Netherlands by just 200hundredths of a second!
13) GOLD for Ricker Maelle in the ladies’ snowboard cross
14) and last but not least GOLD for Alexandre Bilodeau in the men’s moguls…way to go for winning us our first gold medal…you set the tone for the rest of the games!

15) SILVER for the women’s curling team!
16) SILVER to the women’s bobsleigh pair
17) SILVER to Kristina Groves in the ladies’ 1500m speed skating event
18) SILVER for the ladies’ 30o0m short track speed skating relay team
19) SILVER for Marianne St. Gelais in the ladies’ 500m short track speed skating event
20) SILVER for Jennifer Heil in the ladies’ moguls!
21) SILVER for Mike Robertson in the nail biting men’s snowboard cross event

22) BRONZE for the four man bobsleigh team
23) another medal (BRONZE) for Kristina Groves in the ladies’ 3000m speed skating
24) BRONZE for Francois-Louis Tremblay in the men’s 500m short track speed skating event
25) BRONZE for Olympic champion, Clara Hughes. After winning her sixth Olympic medal Hughes says goodbye from the podium and she will be missed!
26) And last but not least one of the most memorable moments out of the 2010 Winter Games is the BRONZE medal for Joannie Rochette who managed to pull through one of the most devastating losses and still stand strong on the podium at the end…Congratulations!

Now even though these winter games featured an unimaginable tragedy on the first day and some bumps along the way, it was the wonderful moments such as those mentioned above that shined above the rest.

Do you believe? Hell yeah CANADA, you made a believer out of us!
