Deloitte 'Away Day' for GES Group (Oct 3)

On October 3, Shannon went to a GES (Global Employer Services) 'Away Day' in Antwerp (GES is a service line of Deloitte that Shannon works under). Unfortunately, it was only for Deloitte people, so I wasn't able to attend. It was a Wild West theme, hence the cowboy photos below. Shannon actually fit the role fairly well, coming from a country background and all. It was a day full of team building activities, including bull riding, roping, riding Skegways through a maze of hay bales, performing a rain dance, shooting a pellet gun and bow and arrow and lastly a race carrying a canoe (they were supposed to be in the water, but it was raining). Later that evening, the festivities turned to a dinner in full Wild West dress, followed by drinking and dancing. Surprisingly enough, no country music was played, mostly just 80's and techno music.
