This year one of us turned 30 and another turned 40 (names withheld to protect the ageing) so
we embarked on a celebration of birthdays and our success as a work group.. While previous years have been pretty good Whitsunday Fishing trip….) This year took the Cake.
It all started innocently enough with a trip down to Sydney to see the first round, first NRL game of the Season. Rabbitoh’s VS Roosters. David Jones has been a Rabbitoh’s fan since before he could speak, so we suspect this may have had some bearing on the direction of this years adventure. Overall the game was a great start to the Season with the Rabbitoh’s securing a clear victory over the team that knocked them out of the 2013 finals series. Needless to say David was pretty happy and drinks were on him, while he assured the boys they would make the finals this year.
After a big night of sensible fun, the boys woke up to a treat, $10 for a massive steak and chips, followed by a helicopter flight over Sydney Harbor. The guys down at Sydney Helicopter Tours made sure it was quite the ride with everyone grinning from ear to ear. Well except for one certain Commercial Projects Manager who has never been so happy to walk on grass.
After that it was off to see the one and only Ginger Elvis otherwise known as Josh Homme, and his band Queens of the stone age and NIN (Nine inch Nails), at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. According to all reports it was brilliant and the perfect end to an amazing weekend. The boys must have had a big weekend because according to all reports they went straight to bed after the concert, flew home and there is nothing else to say.
