September 16th, 2013 was our Annual Datacratic Day. The day started with a companywide update over coffee and croissants, and then we headed outside to board our rented school bus for a little adventure.
At Datacratic good food is an essential, so our first stop was Tavern on the Square in Westmount for a big lunch. Then back on the bus with bellies full we headed out of town to Mont Saint-Hilaire for some serious go kart racing. I say serious because some of the go karts went as fast as 80km/h, and I say serious because…..yes, we really did race.
We raced go karts for an hour. Despite having organized the event I really did not take on board how fun it would be to simply race cars for an hour – there was a definite formula 1 feel going on. By the end of it we were all smiling and ready for the beers and ‘good eats’ waiting for us back in Montreal at Hurley’s pub. All in all, I would say this year’s Datacratic Day was a success.
