fbpx The RICS Team celebrated the end of the summer by having a “Back to School” party on Wednesday, August 5th. One of the main events during this party was a corn hole tournament, where everyone was randomly paired with another RICS team member to compete for the championship title. We also had people playing giant Jenga, ping pong, and other social games. We had a lot of great snacks including root beer floats, cheese and crackers, and the most delicious homemade cookies by our very own Holly Hammond. Brian Graham, one of our Business Development Managers, is a home brewer and supplied us with two of his favorite homemade beers (you can find his Brewery here!). When the tournament officially started, bags were flying and the crowd was roaring. Which team would go all the way and claim the prize? After several rounds of blood, sweat, and tears, we made it to our final four teams. At this point, we announced the prizes: the second place winners would get tickets of their choice to Symphony on the Prairie, and the first place winners would go home with 3rd row tickets to a Colts game later this fall. Not only were reputations and bragging rights on the line, but now these tickets were too. The competition became fierce, but only one team could come out on top. Tensions were high and breath was held, but it came down to Betsy & Josh vs. Aaron & Brad in the final game. Everyone was expecting a close and exciting game, but it ended at a shocking score of 21-4. While Aaron & Brad left the game with their heads hanging low, Betsy & Josh were celebrating their win and their awesome tickets. Our “Back to School” party was a great thing for our company culture. It was nice to have an excuse to hang out with everyone and get to know one another better.
