Business Casual, April 6th, Gainesville, FL

From the folks who brought you Manifest Destiny last summer, a new challenge for your busy body: Business Casual!

This will be a race in a very different format from M.D., with another great list of sponsors to help us out with prizes!
Test your work-a-day mettle against a multitude of tasks, Hang out at the water cooler. Hide from the boss and get cash!! Will post the flyer soon. Ride-Rite!!!

Info to be updated soon here as soon as it becomes available, which is to say in just a few days, after we get our TPS reports together.

We'll keep you posted as the office gossip unfolds.

Is this right up my alley or what?

Thank goodness you got the memo about not including heat stroke as one of the checkpoints.

Aw come on... it was the hottest day of the year. Almost, but not quite.

That memo was filed in triplicate though. It's just now making it's way through the echelons of upper middle management.

Nasty indeed! Rain all day!

55 people still came out, and I had a blast. But I might have had too much of a blast and messed up the results a little. Everything got sorted out in the end though. You shoulda come out! A little water never hurt anyone!
