INTERNeX Canada: Casual friday

Friday is here!!!Oh yeah! The weekend has finally arrived!

Yesterday we began our pre-weekend with a great afternoon doing indoor paintball in Richmond! It´s one of the best places for doing this activity all over the world! So lucky for ours winners!

As you know in our Summer Party a lot of prizes were given away! And one of them was the paintball tickets!

We all met at Waterfront Station after work and take the skytrain together to go there!

Once you arrived to Richmond it is really curious to see all the posters on the streets in Chinese language! Yes, in that area the Chinese population is more than the half of the people than the total that live there! So is not Chinatown, is at least Chinacountry! Oh what a bad joke! But it´s true it´s amazing how all the city is ready for their Chinese neighbors.

Everybody was so excited before entered in the place! Last time INTERNeX went to the paintball everybody looked afraid, but this time everybody showed very brave and with a lot of energy to do a colorful war!

A guy explained the important rules of the game like to have always the mascara on, don´t shot without looking … and after everybody knew the rules the war started!

The game consisted in two different teams that battled against each other! Are you on my team or are you my enemy, my friend?

It was a funny Thursday and all our winners had fun!

Check our flickr page out to see more pictures!

Happy Friday!

Cheers,

Irene

125 Years of Banff National Park!

This year Banff celebrates the 125th birthday of the Banff National Park, a part of the Rocky Mountains.

It is also the birthplace of the word’s first national park services! Until November 2010, special programs and events will celebrate this significant 125th anniversary. Discover unforgettable experiences to add to your time in Canada.

This Saturday and Sunday August 28-29 you can join other Banff residents on a camping trip and participate in one of the many interactive events on one of Banff’s 1500 camping sites.

Are you more of an indoor person? No worries how about checking out the Dragon Fli Empire! Calgary’s hip hop heroes are gonna make the HooDoo bounce.

I really wish I could join in on the camping trip, my 4 day trip in the Rockies wasn’t nearly enough! But I hope that our INTERNeX Candidates working in Banff have the time to attend one of these celebrations.
