Our Christmas party in 2019 was supposed to support the international orientation of SKS - we went abroad, namely to Prague! In our chartered bus, the atmosphere was filled from the beginning with lively conversations. At noon we reached the beautiful city of Prague and first enjoyed an excellent menu in a real Czech atmosphere: at restaurant “U Vodoucha” - the insider tip of an SKS client. Winter snow and a huge number of cars accompanied our drive to the first event during rush hour. However, we arrived on time at the Hurricane Factory Prague. The idea of flying in an air duct with 230 km/hour fast wind was the compromise solution for the SKS colleagues who did not want to skydive ;-) The excitement increased for everyone when we slipped into our suits and watched preparatory videos. Not less nervous we became during the "dry run" of the basic posture on a buck - still without wind. Then it finally started. In deafening noise we got to know the aerodynamic of our body in different postures, flew high up with the guide, played games in the hurricane and after a few minutes we were all fixed and happy.
With these experiences in our minds, we briefly checked into our hotel and then strolled through the Christmassy city centre of Prague to our restaurant “U
Pinkasu”. An excellent dinner awaited us in the vaulted cellar, with lots of beer and lots of laughter. Afterwards we needed a short break at the hotel to relax and prepare for the party. Around
11 p.m. we left for the party at Club DUPLEX in stylish outfits. It was a great evening: we chatted, danced, enjoyed the drinks and had lots of fun!
As expected, the next morning started very quietly with a hearty meal at the Hard Rock Café. Also the return trip was rather quiet, as most of us still had to recover from dancing and little sleep.
Conclusion of the SKS celebration: it was exhausting, but so great that we definitely want to repeat it! Thanks to all of you for this unique SKS trip.
