Here is the list of events that we organize for our teachers & teaching assistants in London from November 2nd-6th, 2009.
The Scavenger Hunt is always very popular and ridiculously fun. We have some amazing sponsors who help provide us with some healthy competitive spirits.
Prize #1: For the Winning Team
Topdeck have once again generously donated 250 GBP worth of travel vouchers to be used against any of their tours in Europe or Africa. You can see how last year's winning team used their vouchers here.
Here's the blurb about what Topdeck is all about:
At Topdeck our passion is providing unforgettable travel experiences for 18-30 something’s.

Travel with Topdeck and Share the Experience.Thanks Topdeck!
Prize#2: A Cross Pen & Pencil Gift Set from Lloyd's TSB Offshore - Vancouver Office
Our friends, Michael & Tony, in the Vancouver Lloyd's office have generously donated a Cross Pen & Pencil gift set for one of the winners of the Scavenger Hunt. They wanted to help our teachers & teaching assistants celebrate their new careers in education by giving a very grown-up gift. Cross pens are well known amongst professionals for being the pen of choice.
Prize #3: The Mystery Prize
I can't tell you what this prize is yet. But trust me, this one is AWESOME. And who doesn't love a surprise?
Prize #4: Random Canadian Goodies
All year, whenever I see something Canadian that I think might make a cool Scavenger Hunt prize I pick it up and toss it into my suitcase. So, in my suitcase I have found:
- Canadian Flag Cupcake Holders and Toothpicks.
- 2 Canadian Baseball Hats.
- Loads of Canadian Stickers.
- Maple Syrup - Organic and in a really cool bottle.
- Kraft Dinner. Because someone out there is really missing their KD.
- Tim Horton's Coffee (Not actually Canadian, but loads of Canadians miss this coffee)
- Stuart McLean's Extreme Vinyl Cafe - because his stories make me almost wet my pants in laughter and he's just oh-so-Canadian.
See many of you in a week.
