We sat down with one of our event managers and she gave us a little insight on what it’s like to work for Events & Adventures. People always ask her if she likes her job and her answer is always the same, “It’s the best job I’ve ever had in my life!” She loves the creativity of putting together great experiences that pique the interests of our very diverse member base. Some of our members are thrill-seekers; they love the skydiving, hang gliding, zip lining and rock climbing type of events. Others enjoy more casual and artistic activities, so she’s always on the lookout for great theatre performances and fantastic museum venues.
She says we also have many members who like anything – as long as it’s athletic! Sand volleyball, trampoline dodgeball, flag football and disc golf are just a few of the events that we plan and that they flock to. One of her most popular activities is hiking. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a hike on the beach or through the redwoods, or a hike just to watch the sunset – the combination of good exercise and good friends always makes the day special.
She often even puts together “interactive” events for her members. The Santa Clara club had an Amazing Race where the members solved clues, traveled using three different methods of transportation and had to perform crazy tasks as they raced through the streets of Mountain View. We had a dude ranch adventure which included horseback riding, roping lessons, and a truly hysterical pie-eating contest. Scavenger hunts are also always a member favorite, especially when each destination is determined by a clue or a puzzle that needs to be solved as a team.
Sometimes we just meet and have a beer while we play board games, or watch a sporting event and mingle. Other times we play trivia games at a venue and laugh ourselves silly. And sometimes we just go to an unusual restaurant together and enjoy the simple pleasure of each other’s company. Our event managers love sitting up at night coming up with ideas! Whale watching, escape rooms, kayaking, a caricature drawing class, fencing, aerial yoga, the list goes on. Their minds can never seem to shut off the faucet of ideas that keep popping into their brains! As a member of Events & Adventures, you’ll see and experience this for yourself!
