Easter Egg Hunt – Xero styles


We’ve had a great week in Xeroland with lots of big news being announced. But surely the highlight has to be today’s Easter Egg Hunt organised by two of our dev team members, Vicky Rawsthorne and Rowena Joe (our resident foodie).


Vicky and Rowena devised a novel Easter Egg hunt for the Wellington based Xeroes. They planted 323 easter eggs around our Old Bank Arcade office and then set 45 Xeroes loose to hunt and gather them all up. Each egg had a number on it to claim “the big bunny prize”.

Our third prize winner with winning egg #208 was Karen Winslow, Karen scored herself a very macabre white chocolate bunny that had accidentally been decapitated by our General Manager of Sales. Martin Mani came in second with egg #177 to claim a large chocolate bunny and Jason Naylor scored the big Kahuna bunny (pictured here with Rowena).

The Hunt was interesting in that a number of chocolate bits and bobs turned up that Rowena and Vicky hadn’t actually planted so we guess these were left over from last year’s hunt. Also, there are about 60 eggs still unaccounted for so we expect to be finding these around the office over the next year or so.

Have a happy, relaxing Easter from all of us at Xero and please travel safely.

Thanks again Vicki and Ro. The look on Craig’s face when his number wasn’t drawn was priceless.
