A total of 39 STARCLUB members met with ENERGETIX’s management on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Malta from 1 to 3 October. It was the first trip since the beginning of the pandemic for many of the participants.
After arriving on the Friday, the STARS were taken straight to Hotel-Resort Dolmen that’s located on the beach front. A bus then took the participants for their evening meal to Valletta, the island’s capital. The participants were given the opportunity to take a walk through the historic old town and explore its narrow streets that were decorated with fairy lights and filled with music and the aroma of Maltese cuisine.
The next day was reserved for activities, fun and teamwork. So the participants were taken by ferry to the island of Gozo where a small fleet of old off-road vehicles awaited for a special island rally. The travellers were divided into eight teams and given a short briefing before they set off for their very own island adventures with individual schedules.
The goal was to find their way across the island by using the schedules and solving questions and tasks along the way. Driving on the narrow, sometimes unpaved roads with the old cars was a challenge in itself. So this team challenge wasn’t lacking in adrenaline and fun. A unique experience that none of the participants will ever forget so quickly.
Everyone was given the chance to recover from the exciting day and spend some time on the beach or do a bit of shopping in the city in the late afternoon before it was time for the exclusive evening meal that was being served at Restaurant Café del Mar. The winners of the rally were celebrated in the modern ambience. The exquisite meal was complemented with cake to celebrate the birthday of one of the participants. In spite of the corona-related ban on dancing, it was a successful evening, which some of the travellers found themselves bringing to close at the beach bar.
The next morning, the last one before departure, provided the time and scope for an intensive exchange with the management. In the bright sunshine and with a buffet lunch to follow, everyone was given the opportunity to address important topics that would help shape new developments at ENERGETIX.
The international STARCLUB meeting not only provided the setting for a great reunion that was characterized by lots of fun, good food and long-awaited personal exchanges, it was also a total success.
