Saturday

 

                                 

 

The Company I worked for had a very active Social Club ~ Evenings would be arranged where we would all get together ~  competitions were played  in lots of different  things  ~ Teams were set up for Darts  ~ Pool ~ Cricket ~ Football ~you name it there was always something going on ~  

"This was the company that entered us for the Raft Race "~ all the men are Qualified Engineers ~ and it was the apprentices who built the Raft ~ 

At the end of the year a Dinner dance would be arranged  ~ and we would all dress up and get ready to have a good time ~

Trophys had to be handed out and this was done after we had  eaten ~ and before the dancing started ~ this was always a long drawn out ceremony ~

Then of course there would be the Raffle draw ~ after all the  prizes were handed out ~ the disco would take over ~

Those who had won the Trophys were taken into another room to have their Photograph taken as a group ~ this would end up on the wall in the Canteen and would remain there until next years Dinner Dance ~

ohhh pretty red dress. Years ago it was fun to work for some companies they still had some company spirit and promoted fun & games for company health. Companies today are very stupid and have not learned from the past.  Sandi http://journals.aol.com/sdoscher458/LifeIsFullOfSurprises

Wow, that must have been taken with
a pretty classy camera. (Americans, you
know, envy the Brits their 'classiness') I say
that because there seems to be a minimum of
distortion with a wide angle lens. Or, it's a
studio shot and there is no fourth wall. Lol.
Splendid looking crowd, and some of them
probably sing too....

What a talented bunch Ally, there's enough sheilds there to keep the silversmiths happy.  It's a brilliant photo, very colourful and clear.  They sound a great crowd. Rache
