Tobogan / 26th week

Welcome to English Toboggan VI a.k.a. Tuesday Toboggan. I’m making no excuses, but I spent most of today travelling back from Berlin, where I spent the weekend without my laptop, so I’m doing this at 23:45 on a Monday night. Don’t expect War and Peace.  Monday: The first international PROEBIZ beach volleyball game took place on Masaryk Square with Andy, Juraj, Jan C, Matej and Igor M. Besides this I have no other details other than it was great! Unfortunately there are no photos, but I’m sure they all looked fab! Jirka Š and family moved into his parents’ house for the week as security guards while they were away at a spa.  Tuesday: JŠ left Ostrava on 5am for Bratislava, having four meetings during the day and another with a partner in the evening.  Wednesday: JŠ had his first teleconference about price. It was very tough, but the result was that we have a big new Slovak client. So, great result!  Thursday: JŠ had a busy day (as always) because it was the last day before his holidays. It included a videoconference between various PROEBIZERS where it seems that Petr Donath has either moved to Australia or decided to become a bat: PHOTO. The PROEBIZ PR & Marketing ‘B’ team were in lovely Košice for the WIRE 2017 conference (Week of innovative Regions in Europe) seeking out people of potential interest for eBF and beyond. Several useful contacts were made: PHOTO, PHOTO and PHOTO.  Friday: While everybody was wilting in the heat, Danka finally found herself in her element. Adélka missed the last week of school through illness, but they made it there on Friday to pick up her report and celebrated her straight ‘A’s with the traditional nice meal and in the afternoon they went to the Catalan carnival in Ostrava: PHOTO, PHOTO.  The weekend: On Saturday, JŠ and family had an enjoyable time watching Ja Padouch 3 (Despicable Me 3) at the cinema. Igor M. spent a brilliant, relaxing and fun weekend in Krakow: PHOTO, PHOTO and PHOTO. As I said at the start, I spent the weekend in Berlin. The part we were staying in was more like Damascus than Germany, but none the worse for that. On Sunday night we went to see Arcade Fire, who were fabulous. The only annoying thing was queuing for 90 minutes to see a concert that lasted less than two hours: video.
