Friday evening saw the Hamiltons team pit their wits against the Ghetto Golf course in Digbeth, Birmingham. The field was pretty close by the time we reached the final hole, but there was a clear winner when the final ball was sunk. Myles Butterly, our very own GC (golf champion) finished a clear 5 strokes ahead of second placed Steven Mainwaring, who in turn finished a single shot ahead of Danielle Chew. A great night was had by all, who went on to sample the culinary delights of the Digbeth Dining Club.
On a sunny Tuesday evening on Broad Street, Hamiltons attended the Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group World Cup Table Football Tournament at the Bierkellar. Neil Stanley and Steven Mainwaring were the duo selected to take on other professionals from the Midlands, each representing a country represented at the World Cup finals in Russia. However, it is with great regret that the team did no favours for their selected country, France. Despite improving as the group stages progressed, Hamiltons suffered three straight defeats and exited the competition at the first hurdle, with fellow group contenders Panama, progressing to win the tournament. The event was fantastically run and everyone was hospitable, with funds raised on the raffle going to Cancer Research.
April saw 12 members of the Hamiltons team descend on the Teamworks go-karting track at Halesowen to see who could claim the title of the best driver in the office. The competition was close, with only 4 seconds separating the entire filed. But it was Neil Stanley, a member of the Hamiltons management team, who left victorious finishing 0.339 seconds of second placed Anton Barrett, from the accounts and audit team. Our team had a fantastic time at Teamworks and will no doubt head back in the near future for a re-match.
