The Hercules vibe<br /> | September 30, 2009 | slide 8<br />After your Trophy<br />During your Trophy<br />Before your Trophy<br />Wikipedia: To experience good vibrations or good vibes is in general terms to experience that a situation, company, person or similar is pleasant, emotionally aligned with oneself. Spiritually speaking it has good karma.<br />The Hercules Trophy creates a platform where people connect on an emotional level. It’s not a one-day-experience but a process. The vibe starts months before the event and remains in the hearts of everybody. <br />Hercules Trophy 2010<br />
