AALAS Bulletin from our social affairs correspondent, Ryan Hill
AALAS really does bring people together from across the globe for science, business and, of course, those highly enjoyable social events.
As the 2017 meeting drew to its close, it was only fitting for us Brits to follow tradition and conclude another fantastic conference with the now legendary Brits Night! Painstakingly organised by our own Nicky Windows, this year’s event saw the coming together of 43 British AALAS delegates.
The evening was held at an old school American bar named Buffalo Billiards. Pool and billiard tables were available to enjoy whilst socialising and catching up with fellow colleagues. The venue itself as well as the food and drinks were kindly sponsored by Agenda, Allentown, Datesand, Fuel 3D, IPS, Rees Scientific, Sychem and Tecniplast.
Our sincere thanks to all the sponsors. With your support, everyone was able to enjoy yet another really successful Brits night.
The event ended at approximately 9pm. For many of us though, the party continued as we moved on to what had become our regular venue, The Blind Pig. There was music, dancing, lots of chat as well as more memories made and friendships forged.
