It’s not often at Mode that we can say we are shooting moving targets! However, when it was time to discuss what we should do for our team day we knew we wanted to mix in some pure 80’s music and push the boundaries by trying our hand at Clay pigeon shooting!
We all boarded the Mode mini bus recently and headed to Hampshire!
Whilst we enjoyed a delicious team meal together we waited with anticipation for the 80’s band to begin so that we could enjoy dancing and boy did we dance!
As a fast moving business, it’s great to just stop and connect with our engineers and other team members who are always in the field and are not office-based because of the high level of service we offer our customers.
So on Saturday it was a very tired and achy Mode team that after a full English breakfast, headed off to try out Clay Pigeon shooting.
After some instruction, one being to definitely not get the urge to shoot each other, we all headed to the range to try and shoot some moving clays!
What struck us was how excellent we all were-however we must confess, the instructors were brilliant teachers. From our Chief executive right through to our recent new members in Client Support and our new IT Support Engineer, we all proved ourselves to be quite the marks people! Although we do have to add that perhaps one service engineer should stick to the day job, but we’ll keep who that was a secret!
Shooting in teams with people we may not necessarily talk to on a day to day basis or work with directly, meant that we were able to get to know each more, particularly the new team members and relax and have fun!
What is important to us though is spending some time together away from the day job, where our focus is of course our clients. However, spending this time together ultimately makes us a greater team for our clients because of our bond together.
A great night and day for the Mode team and one that will be repeated soon, maybe we should all take up Clay Pigeon shooting and start a Mode competitive team!
