Team Building Exercises

June 1, 2016

This week, while half of the group attended the Gordon Research Conference on Chemotactic Cytokines in Girona, Spain, the rest of us rallied together to make the most of the rare Scottish sun and went white water rafting.


On Sunday, we drove a little over an hour north of Glasgow to Aberfeldy on the River Tay to start our day of “team building”. We’d chosen a pirate theme for the day, decking the crew out in eyepatches and Jenny, as the most senior scientist among us, with the captain’s hat.



We spent an hour and a half on the water, the highlights of which included: aggressively splashing the other boats, Tom doing a front-flip off the boat, some tentative and genuine ‘trust exercises’ which we passed with flying colours, Robin and Angeliki jumping overboard (one more willingly than the other…), some pretty rough rapids, and a lot of terrible pirate puns.


A big thanks to Nae Limits for the experience and the enthusiasm of their staff - our first mate, Drew, seemed to be enjoying himself as much as we were! We had a great day out and definitely couldn't have asked for better weather!
