Crazy PuBNiGHT Last Night!

First of all, let me thank everyone for coming out last night! It was the biggest PuBNiGHT we have ever had! With over 30 people there we pretty much ruled the Blarney Stone! Second, i would like to thank West Trek for coming out and giving away a price! The game they organized was very good and  one of our Candidates was the winner of a free trip to Whistler!

The night was great and before we knew it, there were 30 people all mingling and talking with each other.  At 10 pm the band started playing and some brave people found their way to the dance floor!

West Trek organized a beer pong game, where you had to throw a ping pong ball in a plastic cup. If the ball fell in the cup than you had to drink it. The idea was to get rid of your opponent cups as soon as possible. The last person standing won the Free trip to Whistler. So congrats Emilia, our lovely Swedish candidate for winning the trip! She managed to outplay all the other contestants.

Hope to see everyone Monday at Lasertag and Karaoke! So sign up leave a message on our Facebook site or email me at pr@internexcanada.com

Let’s Go Paintballing!

Ready to gear up? Join other INTERNeX candidates for an adrenaline-rushing game of Paintball on Thursday July 8, 2010. Shoot or get shot as we run, crawl and hide over a span of three-acre terrain!  You don’t want to miss this event – and girls – you need to come out too!

We will be playing from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. at NorthShore Paintball, which is located just minutes from downtown Vancouver. Let’s get a big group of us, because although July 8 is already Half Price Thursdays, if we get a group of 12 or more, then we pay $28.00 for entry, rentals and 200 paintballs! This is an awesome deal!

Laura and I will be heading over to a thrift store to pick out some outrageous outfits (maybe even some comfortable dresses) to wear while we pulverize the boys! Make sure to wear comfortable, old clothing because this is going to be a highly active couple of hours! Grab some friends, some coworkers, even your boss and open fire at INTERNeX Paintball! We guarantee you’ll relieve some stress and leave with tons of fun memories (and maybe a few bruises).

If we don’t get a group of 12 or more, here are the prices. Please note that NorthShore Paintball only accepts cash payments, so please come prepared.
