We were mega excited to meet our group of uber-talented volunteers, all of whom have been painstakingly, hand-selected by team leader, Betty (above). After an initial meet and greet, thankfully, during which no one ran screaming from the building (and yes we were prepared it) we surprised the guys with a field trip to the Opera House itself. While we're all familiar with iconic landmark, to actually visit it is truly something spectacular. Our aim, besides an oppurtunity to sing bus songs, was to get the guys to really appreciate just how epic this project is and get a sense of the absolute magic of this architectural masterpiece.
With our mission accomplished it was back to PC to really get cracking on the nuts and bolts of how the next week is going to go...that said, we still have absolutely no idea ourselves!
It was definately one long, red bull fuelled day, only the first of many, and I know for a fact there are more than a couple of staff members at home this very minute quietly sipping a strong drink or two, but I for one know I will sleep well tonight knowing that our coolest, craziest, by-far-the-most-ambitious project to date has begun!
Meet the team !
