I’ve decided to take back the reigns on this one from Paul … mainly because he’s had the cheek to go on holiday! So, rather then deprive you all of our regular event of the month blog, I’ve written it.
The event chosen this month was a clear winner for most of our team. It was a great Wild West event that we ran early in the month for over 130 people in Stockport. Now, being July, we were hoping for nice weather so we could take the group outside. More than that, because indoor space was at a premium, we really needed some good weather! I can’t claim it was a beautiful summer’s day, but it wasn’t raining and we were happy to settle for that!
With our 12 teams inside all eager to get to grip with the simulation they got stuck in straight away. After the first set of decisions were out of the way, all the different tasks we make available during a Wild West event were in great demand. The first group of eager Gunslingers disappeared outside with Steve and then we opened up the Gold Panning with Lorraine – which helped quite a few towns become richer very quickly! Buffalo Hunt and Sharp Shooter soon followed. Some needed practice with their aims for both – but, hey, we had all afternoon for them to work on it!
There was a lot of good banter going around the group – maybe not as much cross-team working as we usually see, but lots of good banter as everyone enjoyed their afternoon. We had some high scoring teams too, but for us the thing that really stood out was the willingness of all 12 teams to try everything we offered them. A great day all around!
