Just a quick holiday update. This past weekend, a team of eight brave SingleHoppers competed in the Braintree Chicago Tech Dodgeball Tournament. Our brave warriors (yours truly, included) played long and hard, but were unfortunately defeated. Nonetheless we are proud to have participated in the charity focused event which raised $1,000′s for KIVA.org to help new entrepreneurs around the world get started.
Here is a photo of our starting line-up and an action shot just before a match.
In the left shot, taken after the tournament: Konrad from Finance, Kiel from Tech, Sean from Marketing, Eric from Tech, Ryan from New Clients, Eugene from Tech, Dan from Marketing (me), Brandon from Tech. The team was lead by our official team captain, Amya.
After playing, it was clear to me that we’re a lot better at managing data centers and dedicated servers than we are at dodgeball. Nonetheless, we had a blast. Thanks to everyone who participated.
