This December we had the honour of being asked to host the 2015 Hectic Europe Christmas party. Hectic handle marketing and distribution for Poler, Deus, Raen Optics, Stance and Firewire Surfboards in Europe. They wanted to provide their staff of 20 with an experience to match the outdoor lifestyle vibe synonymous with their flagship brands and we were more than happy to help out.
With a couple of new members added to our team we taught a mix of wood carving, axe use, wild rabbit butchery, campfire cooking and slingshot making. Teaching wild butchery is something we've wanted to do for a while as we think it's a great way to get people thinking about where their food comes from and we were really impressed with everyone's willingness to get stuck in.
After a fiercely competitive slingshot shoot out in the fading light it was time for beers from the local brewery, toasting marshmallows around the fire and a chance to rest aching hands and muscles.
Thanks heaps to Hectic for choosing to spend the day with us and to everyone who came for doing such a great job. Thanks also to our new recruits Toby and Lucy for sharing their excellent wild butchery skills.
If you would like to book a bespoke/corporate workshop for a group of anything from 8 to 20 people, please get in touch with Emma: firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to help arrange it with you.
