With almost 10 years of experience planning tours to different countries, these events are at risk of becoming better than mediocre. Team members and alumni gather every year for a long weekend of football matches, local events and local beer. It is a highlight of the year.
Whether it's gathering at the Restaurant Braueri after the Friday match or meeting up for a local event, the team likes to have a good time.
Every year the team gathers for a friendly match against itself to raise money for a charity, followed by a black tie gala with our significant others to celebrate the end of the season. Albeit it is in black tie, that is where the formality ends. The food, beer/wine, and company are exceptional; the rest of it (band, music, dancing, and awards ceremony) is mediocre at best.
