Paintball: Inaka’s End-of-the-Year Party
Earlier this month, Chad was in town for a wedding, and we couldn’t let the opportunity go to waste. So we decided to celebrate our end-of-the-year party a little early. This year, we did so with a rousing game of paintball.
We played three games – stealing the flag, raiding the house, protecting the president – and had a blast. Afterwards, we uncorked the wine and had an asado to celebrate another great year of Inaka. Chad, Brujo, and Martina made toasts, after which we rode our school bus back to the office, where we continued to talk and drink together.
Most of us had little to no experience, but we managed to survive. (Chelo, on the other hand, had some serious skill.)
But in the end, it didn’t matter who won or lost. It mattered that we had a chance to spend time together, outside of the office, on teams and supporting each other (or whoever was on your team, anyway). After all, there’s nothing like warfare, welts and bruises to bring people together!
Here are a few pictures from that day.
Taking a school bus to the destination like proper professional adults
Divvying up the goods and loading up our guns
So glad that the boss isn’t always dressed this way…
Brujo with a double shield, ready to go!
Taking a few practice shots
Getting settled in the house – only to defend it against the other team
That’s going to hurt tomorrow!
And, finally, a shot of the whole team together (or at least everyone who could make it that day)!
Here’s to another great year at Inaka and what’s to come!
