REVIEW POKER QUIZ NIGHT

First I would like to thank Steve for preparing everything and leading us through the evening. You did a great job and we had a lot of fun! Thank youuuu.

IMG_2970As you may know we had a variation of our weekly PUB NiGHT yesterday. Instead of going out and having some drinks we met in the INTERNeX office to play a kind of poker. Tim stood us some snacks and Steve had prepared a power point presentation with all the questions, the hints and the answer we needed for playing Poker Quiz.

It was so much fun guessing the all questions because most of the time we had no clue at all and so the answers we gave were absolutely far away from the actual answer to the question. In addition the clues weren’t any help at all.
But well, I mean that was the reason why it was so much fun, wasn’t it? Furthermore the goal was just to get closest to the answer as possible so therefore we had the perfect chance to unpack our amazing poker skills

IMG_2974Let me just give you an example of one of the most unbelievable answer in the entire game: For instance would you’ve known the answer of the following question?

How long is the shortest commercial flight in the world? (under ideal wind conditions)

 

Clue 1:                        The flight connects two islands within the United Kingdom.

 

Clue 2:                        An adult would need 32 minutes to walk the distance on average.

 

Answer:                     47 seconds.

PUB NiGHT ANNOUNCEMENT

Put on your poker face for a variation of our weekly PuB NiGHT! Tomorrow we will have a Poker Quiz Night at 7:00pm in the INTERNeX office. Internex

The Poker Quiz Night functions more or less like a traditional poker game, combined with knowledge you need to answer the quiz questions. Instead of using cards you’ll get one question per round. You cannot answer the questions with ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or just with one word but with a numeral. After writing down your first guess and putting in some chips you’ll get a hint so that you know whether you are on the right way or not. When you think you are still good with your guess you can put in more chips. You will get around two or three hints before the right answer will be shown/told. The person who is closest to the correct answer wins the round. You will get a more detailed explanation tomorrow at the office. Hope my effort explaining the rules was not to confusing.19921488425_1f3e7acc0b_b

Does it sound good or does it sound good?

Hope I could arouse your interest with that short insight about what we’ve planned. Click here to sign in for our Poker Quiz Night. It’s definitely not to late to join us.

Looking forward to a thrilling night with a lot of fun!

White Water Rafting Review

What an amazing weekend!! We hope you had so much fun as we had. On Saturday the 7th of June was THE day were our awesome rafting trip started. Our crazy tour guide Lee from WestTrek picked us at 2pm with a sweet van on Waterfront station up and we made our way to Chilliwack. On our way we stopped of course to get some snacks and drinks (a lot of drinks ;)) for the campfire that night.

We arrived in Chilliwack around 4pm and after we setting up our tents (which mostly we girls did!!), close to a big camp fire place, we started playing volleyball, which was pretty fun. Of course we started already drinking, so you can imagine how funny the volleyball match was. At around 6pm our dinner was ready. There was a buffet with good food, we enjoyed the food while sitting outside in the sun. After dinner we went straight back to the volleyball court and had a exiting match agains the yellow team (high school kids) which of course we won ;).

After the beach volleyball match it was time to start the campfire. We all gathered around the campfire. We spend the whole night drinking, kind of singing, looking at the stars and sharing crazy stories and watch crazy Alex falling down 🙂

The next morning we woke up at around 8am in the morning for a great breakfast with pancakes, eggs and coffee. After a safety talk, which made everybody scared as hell, it was finally time to go Rafting!!! They brought us to the river in old retro school busses and we went on the river with 3 boats with in total about 25 people. There were lots of crazy rapids and the surrounding was stunning! After rafting for about an hour we stopped and dragged our boats on shore. We hiked up to an amazing waterfall and walked through the waterfall, it was breath taking! When we got back in our boats and on the river the rapids kept getting bigger and faster. Three hours later we got back to camp, but it was not over yet! For the real Die Hards there was the possibility to go back on the river again and experience the biggest rapids. Of course all the INTERNeX candidates were up for that. We went back on the river, it was insane! The river was super wild, awesome!

After we came back to the camp our lunch was already waiting for us. We had a last volleyball match and than we made our way back to Vancouver. We arrived in Vancouver around 4pm. Of course we have all the picture on Flickr.

I hope you guys had so much fun as we had 🙂

 

 

We hope we will see you on Wednesday at our weekly Pub Night @ the Doolin’s.
