Here at SingleHop, a lot of people know we do things differently but they probably don’t expect our company meetings to be different too! Last Thursday we held a company meeting after  hours to discuss our recent growth and new data center while taking some much needed relaxation on our 3rd floor deck.

Meeting on the deck

After a long discussion headed by President & CEO, Zac Boca, we decided it was time for a little bonding amongst coworkers and what better way than Whirlyball!?!For those of you who have not had the great pleasure of playing such a fine sport, whirlyball is a mix of bumper cars, lacrosse and basketball. Mix in the sales team’s competitive drive with the tech’s bone crushing strength and you’ve got yourself a SingleHop primetime event!

After several hours of ramming into one another and crashing into walls, the sales team was overwhelming victorious! (and I’m not just saying that because I am in sales!) Leading the way for the sales team was the undefeated, scoring machine known as Chris Larkin who was a terror up and down the court. When asked for a comment on the game, Chris replied, “What can I say?I was dominating so much.. I was already ramming someone else by the time I shot the ball into the target!”

In the end we decided to put down the whirlyball mitts and shoot each other in laser tag that is. Overall it was a fantastic night that lead to a lot of laughs and memorable moments for us SingleHopper’s, however, the next day was a different story as it was filled with bruises, blisters, aches and pains!

Check out some of the photos for yourself!

    That picture of the deck just doesn’t do Chicago any justice… should have taken a wider/taller shot :/

    Otherwise, I am proud to have contributed 0 to Sales winning whirlyball. I’ll tell you one thing, I feel bad for those bumpercars!

    Being blind myself, i’d find it fun just to even hear what’s going on with such a game. I wonder when the first time you’ll get a “Quit having fun and fix my damn server”, DreamHost gets that all the time (Shared host I kinda like).
