Geeks + Outdoor Sports = Fun!

Last Friday the staff of Ecreative had our summer company picnic, involving BBQ and summer food, hanging out in weather that didn’t rain on us despite forecasts, and playing games. Everything from water balloon toss to something involving stuffing marshmellows in your mouth (not sure how that one worked) to bocci ball, tossing the frisbee & football, and of course many games of volleyball.

The highlight of the picnic for me was the volleyball. What does a bunch of internet marketers and web developers look like when they try to play outdoor sports?

Exactly what you think they’d look like.

Despite our relatively low competence level, we had a whole lot of fun. Common consensus was that we should do this every Friday for the rest of the summer and fall. I don’t think the boss is going for it though.

Internet geeks playing outdoor sports. We may not have been good, but we had a lot of fun!
Sometimes we tried to hit the ball, and sometimes we ran away from it. Opinions of these competing strategies vary.
Every now and then we got a good game going and could give the impression that we knew what we were doing.
