On this Flickr page you can find loads of pictures of the GTO Summer Cup 2006. Just for reference I also include the online coverage of this event:
On 1st of September the looked-for day finally was there. This years GTO Summer Cup – organized by the Graduate Trainees 2005 – opened its doors on the sports grounds in Eschborn. About 400 employees and their families had a great day of sports and fun under Eschborn’s sun, which surprisingly showed its face after 4 weeks of bad weather.
At 4pm Clemens Jochum (Group Chief Technology Officer, IES) inaugurated the Cup with motivating and appreciative words. Then the tournament began. In each of the two categories, football and beach volleyball, eight teams fought for the title of the GTO Summer Cup Champion. Apart from the approximately 100 player, 300 visitors came to enjoy the event.
During the matches’ lots of spectators urged their teams on to get them in the next round. Barbeque, cool drinks and entertaining music contributed to the good mood during and after the tournament.
3.5 hours, 18 exciting football and 16 volleyball matches later the football teams FC IBIT/CSIT and Next Generation as well as the two volleyball teams Tough Guys and Security Systems qualified for the finals. But only one could win. Right after the thrilling and top-class finals the winners were determined and the award ceremony took place.
Every Team received an individual certificate and the top three teams of each category a gold, silver or bronze Cup respectively. On top of that the winners of the Summer Cup were given a dinner coupon for their whole team.
While the guests were chatting and enjoying the food and drinks provided, the warm summer evening full of team spirit and fun ended.
The Graduate Trainees 2005 would like to thank GTO IES and GTO PCB/ITO for supporting the event. Of course, many thank to all spectators and players. Without them the Summer Cup wouldn’t have been as awesome as it was.
Also: during the Chase run (we blogged about this earlier) loads of pictures were taken. Have a look here to see them:
