Markitforce Sydney does Rosehill Race Day

Saturday 30th November had arrived and the Markitforce Sydney team donned their best suits, frocks and fascinators for the Blackwoods Festival Stakes Day at Rosehill Gardens. The 100 strong attendee’s braved an overcast and rainy morning, to turn up for what was a gloriously sunny race day by the afternoon in Rosehill. Each with their own betting strategy of numbers, colours, odds, favourites, mates tips or the form guide favourite…everyone was a winner at Markitforce on the day. The view from the Pavilion room was spectacular, the buzz in the crowd was effervescent and the conversations were engaging. Congratulations to all the winners and to Markitforce for putting on another great event, a remarkable way to end an outstanding 2013.

The annual “Employee of the Year” award was postponed to our end of year luncheon to be announced on Thursday 19th December. Stay tuned for the Sydney Winner to be posted in the coming weeks…

Markitforce Melbourne Family Fun Day

The day had finally arrived when the Markitforce Melbourne Team could enjoy the Christmas celebrations at Funfields for their Family Christmas party! Funfields provides families with the opportunity to swim, slide, go kart, toboggan, mini golf and squirt each other with water cannons!

A gourmet BBQ lunch was enjoyed by all followed by the annual ‘Employee of the Year’ award which was jointly shared by Maria Dixon (Boss Lady) and Danielle Trytell (Guardian of Client Contentment). Both recipients of a well deserved travel voucher for their outstanding achievement! After lunch it was a trip to the ice cream van for some welcomed refreshments before indulging in more rides, slides and fun! Santa, who this year came with authentic beard and hair (a novelty compared with previous Markitforce Santas!) did an excellent job of handing out presents along with a photo and hug session with all the children! Santa and his elves did a great job, handing out many presents to the well behaved bunch!

Every child (and adult) in the back of every car was fast asleep by Greensborough on the journey home, which is a sign of an action packed successful day of fun! Merry Christmas from the team at Markitforce Melbourne!
