I’ve promised in my previous post I’ll come back with more pictures from the awesome Christmas bash we had last Friday here, at @CognitiveMatch. Many thanks to @AlexKelleher and Lucy (she’s not on Twitter, bloody technophobes! :p) for organising this — and not to forget @theboybg for taking all the photos and putting together this photo gallery! Oh, and the kitchen poster — love it!
Being the busy bees we are here at Cognitive Match, I didn’t get a chance to blog about it and show you the pictures till now, when things got a bit quieter (though I confess to writing this as I’m running a full maven build in the background that seems to take quite a while .
The day started with a few good hours of clay pigeon shooting at the Bisley Shooting Centre in Surrey — and make no mistakes, this is a proper shotgun shooting, not laser or any other malarkey:
Was also good to see they had my favourite place
Here’s my team heading to the first shooting target — please observe the focus and the determination
Now for some mean looks and skilled shots :
Sion in particular was the best shooter that day (sorry, Mike, next time buddy
And here’s me watching the shoot-off in between him and Mike — somehow I got photographed when I wasn’t shouting my head off rooting for Sion (I do care for my team members — and that didn’t happen that often that day
Lunch break and it started snowing beautifully!
A one last chance to shoot our load (!!!)
before we head off to the clubhouse where these are waiting to be claimed by the best team:
But before we went back, here’s a look at who took part in this and my team — I think it’s safe to say that by that time we knew we were the best of the best of the best
And in case there was any doubt about my driving my team to victory — here’s the winning team (in your face, Lucy! :p)
Having established our seniority in the clay pigeon shooting competition (the other levels of seniority are already known I’m sure! time for drinks and Secret Santa shenanigans — I got an awesome cup! (sorry, I meant 2 cups — about DD each by the looks of it
Thanks once again to everyone from Cognitive Match who took part in organising this or just shooting birds — let’s do it again next year!
