Staff swing into social
The latest staff social saw representatives from many departments challenge each other on the golf course.
The most recent staff social event at Infotec has seen representatives from various departments take to the greens at Breedon Priory Golf Centre.
The idea for the competition came from Lead Product Designer John Cope, who is always keen to get everyone together in a social capacity.
Departments represented were Prep, Mechanical Engineering, Sales, Production, Research & Development and Software. Managing Director Tim Court also took part.
The original plan had been to play 12 holes, but they ended up playing ten, being too exhausted to go any further.
None of those taking part play golf on a regular basis; organiser John last played five years ago, and Tim said he had not played for 20!
John Cope was declared the winner and was presented with a trophy to mark his success. He also won an Infotec pen for being nearest the pin.
Runner-up was Shaun “smooth swinger” Franklin and he was also presented with an Infotec memory stick for achieving the longest drive. In third place came Bhavik “the statue” Tanna.
Commenting on the social, John Cope said: “It was a fun event, there was a lot of laughter, generally caused by how bad we all are at golf!
“Having said that, I shall definitely sort out another one, hopefully with even more players. I’ll be looking to defend my title of course!!”
