It don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that swing

MTI’s annual urban golf event took place last night, officially marking the start of the party season for many of our friends and colleagues. This year’s event was bigger and better than ever with over 200 guests joining us throughout the evening.¬†Urban Golf 2014

I made my way to the event with Luka, Susan, Becky and Ghulam and we had a really good chinwag over a burger before arriving in Kensington. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a sea of faces from partners with whom we have done business throughout the year. It was terrific to see representatives from Avis, Beazley, Capita, Cisco,  DeBeers, EMC, Kuwait Investment Office, Mizuho, MobileIron, Northgate, Trend Micro, Verizon and Vocalink.

Of course the evening would not have been complete without some good old fashioned competitive spirit. We had F1 simulators as well as golfing to get stuck into. You will note from the leader photo[2]board that the Closest to the Pin contest was scooped by our very own Luka (AKA Stephen Puttock) and that once again Ian scooped the prize for coming second. This will sit nicely next to the prize he didn’t win for Jenga at another recent company event. There’s always next year Ian…:)

It comes as no surprise that Mark Ruffell took top place on the podium for the Silverstone racing. I have been watching him tearing around the MTI car park in his little red Peugeot and it is clear that he has been practicing. Fear not. I have warned him that if he keeps it up he will only be able to cycle into work, and then we will see how good he is next year!

So thank you to all of you who made the night such a success. It was great to see everyone and to be able to spend time with you all socially. Thanks also to the team that did such a good job in organising the event, and a special thanks to Ghulam who made sure that everyone got home safely.
