City Slickers

City Slickers 2007 – 2008

Spearing Waite’s City Slickers is a networking group which is dedicated to bringing together like minded professionals in the City of Leicester, in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. 

City Slickers’ 2007 – 2008 programme of events began with a lunch at Walkers Stadium on 14th September 2007.  The event was sponsored by Group 20: The Supercar Club.  The car park outside reception at the Walkers Stadium was graced with a Porsche Boxster S Sports Edition and a Pagani Zonda Roadster F which drew admiring glances not only from the attendees but also from the LCFC players.

Winter seemed to descend upon us very rapidly, and in order to bring a warm glow to all concerned, the next event was a Curry Evening, held at Mem Saab on 15th November 2007, which was sponsored by Allied Irish Bank.  The evening was extremely well attended, and provided an opportunity to forge and cement some worthwhile networking relationships.

We met again on 27th February 2008, at Fat Cat Café Bar for a Quiz Night, sponsored by Berkeley Burke.  Over 100 people attended the event.  It was suggested that the winning team’s success had little to do with its general knowledge, but was as a result of its ability to build the best edifice from spaghetti and marshmallows!  It would also seem that the quizmaster’s expectations were a little on the high side…

Owing to the success of two of last year’s events, both the Casino Night and the Treasure Hunt were repeated.  30th April 2008 saw us trying our hands at the tables at Gala Casino.  Clearly, our fortunes lie in other directions…

The last event of the season was the Treasure Hunt on 3rd July 2008, sponsored by Rowleys.  The weather was not too kind at the start, but after a short time, the hunters were able to lower their brollies, and enjoy the sunshine.  Mobius provided the halfway watering hole, and for those who successfully decoded the clues, the final venue was Fat Cat Café Bar, who again, made everyone welcome.

City Slickers take a little break between the end of July to September, but will be back with a vengeance in the Autumn.
