Big questions and even bigger hikes

February 25, 2022

After another crazy week in the office, the Painted Dogs celebrated big news last week. Earlier in the year our very own Business Analyst, Bill Mann, bravely popped the question to his long-time partner and now fiancé Katie. In the words of Justin “Bill has finally become a Mann”… Naturally, this gave the pack an excellent reason to wander down to the local favourite Chinese restaurant (under Bill’s request of course) for a lunchtime celebration. All the Painted Dogs made sure to eat, laugh and celebrate the great news, ensuring all bellies were full before the weekend. Congrats to Bill and Katie – we’re so excited for you both!!

Following the big lunch on Friday, a few members were still full of energy… so another Sunday morning hike was organised. A few of the Painted Dogs decided to walk from Nedlands to Fremantle in what turned out to be a 16km long trek. Marching across sand, through bush, and down paths with impressive speed, 3.5 hours never flew by so fast. Whilst a little sunburnt and sore, everyone had a marvellous time and were certainly able to get some Sunday napping in before another busy week began on Monday.
