Standardkessel Baumgarte paddling on River Lippe
The same as every year things got sporty for the employees of the Standardkessel Baumgarte Group at the summer party, but this year no hair remained dry …
For the colleagues of the Standardkessel Baumgarte Group, in the truest sense, things became wet and merry, as this year’s summer party took place on the River Lippe on June 22nd.
A relaxed paddling tour with canoes and party rafts had been planned, but this turned out to be a bit of a challenge. The rapids which were “easy” to shoot were not so easy for some to navigate as initially assumed and not everybody managed to stay in their canoes and on the rafts. But this did not tarnish the good atmosphere.
After about 10 km and almost 3 hours, the last party raft reached the finishing line in Schermbeck. From the landing stage the journey went straight on to a restaurant nearby. There, over tasty food and drinks, the quarter final involving the German national football team was enjoyed.
Although the sun was partly replaced by rain and at the end nobody remained dry, this was once again for all colleagues a successful summer party and that was not only due to the national team’s victory.
