Effigent completed one of the most turbulent years in its history on 4th September 2008.
Every year, we used to all go out to a resort and spend the day there. The day would be filled with games, food, beer and a lot of music, apart from the mandatory dip in the swimming pool!
This year was different. There was food, beer and a lot of music. No games and no swimming pool. We had it at the rooftop of our office building.
We had sent out invitations to the current team and a lot of the ex Effigentians. Unfortunately the plan was crystallized on the morning of the party and so could not be organized very well.
We started the party around 6 in the evening. The cake was cut and we had snacks and drinks.
The music and the beer went well and people took to the dancing floor quite promptly. As the music system kept belting out the most recent chart busters, people danced and swayed and generally had a lot of fun.
Very often, an informal party like this one can be more fun than a formal day long affair.
