Great views, historic site, wine tasting, bocce ball - great fun by all!
By Sophie Bousset (San Jose '11)
Over 40 AIESEC alumni, current members from San Jose and Davis, plus trainees and guests all had a blast searching for clues all over San Francisco's Treasure Island to find a delicious treat at the end of the scavenger hunt put on by AIESEC Life Bay Area leaders Edith Gong and Thierry Doyen Sunday November 3, 2013. Many first time visitors to Treasure Island explored the historic site while searching for fun, yet sometimes obscure, Treasure Island spots such as the Firefighting Training Academy, the ports WW2 water craft landed and departed from, or a mysterious zoo comprised of concrete animals.
Participants were delighted to discover bocce ball, treats and wine tasting by Vie Winery to reward all their hard work and celebrated Thierry's birthday with delicious carrot cake. He may have been born on the 4th in Belgium, but it was the 3rd in the States!
Thanks again to all who came for making this a success, and especially to Edith and Thierry for throwing us such a great event!
