Jubilees are important – this is obvious and widely known to all, so every one of us, when thinking about the tenth edition of INTENSE Group’s regattas, was excited. It did not matter that for some people they were the first regattas, and that the veterans were slowly out of fingers to count how many editions they had already taken part in – everyone was waiting for that day with a positive attitude. As it usually happens in such cases, these two days passed extremely quickly. Here is the story…

Since last year there was no contact with water, in the case of this trip (as already mentioned - jubilee trip) we had to make up for it. First, there was pontoon rafting. Divided into groups of several people, we sailed on Poprad's wide waters and set off for the Polish-Slovak border.

The rafting (apart from minor problems of one team) went quickly and smoothly. When the pontoons of the fastest rafters hit the shore...

…others were in no hurry, for when they saw what awaited them...

…they clutched their heads in disbelief. We did not expect that switching to bicycles would be so difficult. As you can see, for most people, the bike became at some point a load, not a means of transport.

Fortunately, after everything, we were all awarded...

Once it was clear that our muscles were given such a hard time that they could no longer work, we got on the roadsters, broke through the forest paths and drove back to the hotel.

As soon as it became dark, some of us revealed our demonic nature. They started to make inarticulate sounds which supposedly were to imitate the sounds of the local nature.

Strangely enough, on the second day, it turned out that some of us were suffering from a strange headache, but the excitement of the upcoming challenge was strong enough that few paid any attention to headache.

Paintball had given a unique opportunity to settle old scores, to quarrel with a colleague from a neighboring desk, or to let off their steam. Suprisingly, no one wanted to join the president’s team, and those who were eventually forced to do it, felt like they signed a pact with the devil.

Anyway we had great fun, unfortunately not everyone took part, so when some sweat for victory ...

… others just laid there and did nothing.

Nie miało to jednak większego znaczenia, bo po krótkim czasie wszyscy pachnieli jednakowo – wzbudzającym apetyt zapachem smażonej kiełbaski. Jej smak pozwolił zregenerować nam siły…

…i ruszyć do dalszej walki z animuszem i sztandarem w dłoni.

But it did not matter much because after a short time everyone smelled the same - the appetizing smell of fried sausage. Its taste let us regenerate ...
