I look back on our first SKS spring party with a big smile. Yes, we decided to sweeten the warmer and more relaxed months with outings by only celebrating the time-honoured Christmas party on a "small" scale, but all the bigger a spring and autumn party.
Just in time for Easter, Dorit unpacked the programme as a surprise 😊 The intensive preparation and compilation of the events was so worth it!
On a beautiful spring day, 5.5.2023, we all met in Leipzig. In a good mood and fresh, we started on a very different city tour: true or false? - The Leipzig tour of lies. We learned a lot about Bach, Goethe, Leipzig trade and much more in an entertaining and historical way. Tobi had the highest hit rate in debunking the lies - well done.
We had earned our refreshment at the Bavarian Railway Station and enjoyed the delicacies. Afterwards we went to the Störmthaler See, a beautiful lake, artificially created from an open-cast mine. Here we had a lot of work to do: in 4 teams we first of all dragged logs and boards, which we transformed into high-quality rafts. The construction required a lot of talking and individual works of art were indeed created. Luckily, all the constructions could float, because after we had duly "christened" our rafts, we had a race. What wet fun. Luckily it was around 20 degrees. The award ceremony belonged to the deserving winners, the "SKS SteuerBieraten".
After this highlight, we took a break at the hotel and met up again refreshed for dinner at the Vodkaria in Leipzig. The food took a back seat to the extensive, fantastic range of vodka on offer. Traditionally, the evening ended in a self-initiated mini-disco with a small box in the hotel's rooftop bar - for a few even in a "real" location with the hits of the 90s.
The morning breakfast and the return journey to Dresden and Berlin were then relatively quiet. Everyone reflected on the wonderful experiences. Once again it was a great SKS day. Everything worked out - many thanks to Dorit for the excellent preparation! It was a lot of fun and brought our team spirit forward again. We are already looking forward to the autumn party 😉
