On Saturday we held our annual Summer Party. The DriveWorks team got together with friends and family for great food, homebrewed beer and DIY games!
Over the past few weeks, we have been spending our lunchtimes making our own games and it was great to see them all finished and have fun playing them on Saturday!
We’ve made splat the rat, cornhole, a giant hook and ring and the most ambitious of all, shuffleboard!
We also brewed some more beer, this time we went with some different recipes to the usual Automation IPA.
This year we made Configurator Pale Ale and Same but Different IPA. Both beers went down really well at the party, these are definitely recipes to keep!
Of course it wouldn’t be a DriveWorks party without some great food! This year we were treated to some delicious wood fired pizza from Stonebakers. They braved the rain to fill our Training Room with endless supplies of pizza.
We also had some Cheshire Farm Ice Cream, served from a trike! Oliver and Howie were more than willing to ride the trike around the party, taking ice cream to the people.
Alongside our usual pool tournaments, this year we had our DIY games to play too!
We made two cornhole sets, a giant ring and hook and splat the rat. The games certainly brought out the competitive sides in all of us and it was great fun playing the games we’ve all been building over the last few weeks!
The most popular game at the party was of course shuffleboard! After initial delays sourcing shuffleboard wax, we built this one in less than a week! What a great achievement to get it finished in time for the party and have so much fun playing it.
We’ll be bringing out the games at DriveWorks World 2020, look out for updates from us for news of the dates and location!
The only thing we couldn’t prepare in advance was the weather, and of course, being in the UK it rained! But we are used to it and some of us came very prepared!
Despite the rain, we had a great day enjoying drinks, food, games and laughs as a team!
We’re currently recruiting for a number of vacancies and we’re always on the lookout for talented people to join our team.
