Orange Line 2017 Social Wrap Up

Throughout 2017, Orange Line remained committed to providing a positive and caring workplace culture. One of the incentives we introduced was the Friday Social.

We took it as an opportunity to spend time together as a team, whether it was competing to be the office trivia champion or relaxing with a long lunch.

Here’s a quick wrap up of what we did over 2017!

February – Intrepid Day
We treated ourselves on a super-hot summer’s day for an adventure-filled time at Sydney’s Wet ‘n’ Wild!
March – Pasta Long Lunch
What better way to celebrate the end of the week than with a wonderful long lunch at Pasta Emilia – we started stocking up on those delicious carbs in time for Autumn.

April – Balderdash afternoon
Having some fun in the boardroom, being creative and letting our imaginations run wild as we played Balderdash!

May – Bowling
We hit the bowling lanes and discovered the surprising bowling pros we had hiding in the office.
July – Pasta Making
We loved our long lunch back in March so much, that we decided to learn how to make the delicious food we had tasted! We made spinach and ricotta ravioli, mixing both yellow and black pasta to create an interesting array of patterns. We then cooked the ravioli in a burnt butter and sage sauce – Bellissimo!
August – Mini Golf at Holey Moley
We hung out at the coolest mini golf venue in town, Holey Moley! It’s not your regular mini golf though, with a different theme for each hole – such as The Simpsons and Game of Thrones!
September – Game show and cocktails 
We kept it simple in the office …well, kind of! We held a game show afternoon, and to quench our thirst we had a fabulous cocktail mixologist on hand – thanks Stan!
October – Paella in the Park
Since we have a strong Spanish representation in the office, we thought we would make October’s social a mini-Spanish day! We enjoyed some delicious paella in the park for a chilled afternoon.
November – Melbourne Cup lunch
We skipped our Friday social and brought it forward to the Tuesday to spend a glammed-up lunch and afternoon for Melbourne Cup at the Darlo Country Club.
December – Trivial Pursuit
To cap off the year, we had a chilled afternoon with snacks and drinks and a fun game of Trivial Pursuit! The winners on the day were Team Anna, Ivan and Jono!
December – Christmas Party
And to wrap up the year, the Orange Line Christmas Party was held on a boat cruising Sydney Harbour! Considering it was a 34 degree (and super-sunny) day, it couldn’t have been a more perfect way to celebrate the end of 2017 at Orange Line!
