Red Spark Celebrates Q1 @ Urban Axes
Celebrating our achievements as a team and getting the chance to get to know others around the office are just two reasons why we love our quarterly outings. Whether attending a Phillies game or a minigolf tournament, quarterly outings at Red Spark are always filled with laughter and camaraderie.
In honor of a successful Q1, the Red Spark team took a trip to Philly’s Urban Axes for a night of axe throwing. Axe throwing is a sport in which the competitor throws an axe at a target, attempting to get the axe lodged in the board as close to the bullseye as possible. This may sound intimidating at first, but our team is always prepared to take on a new challenge. Only a small handful of our team had tried axe throwing before the event, so we knew our coaches would have a lot of work to do to help us become axe throwing pros.
With a little determination and a lot of support from our coaches, our team was hitting bullseyes left and right before we knew it! We were also lucky to have some natural axe throwers on our team who helped others off to the side with their form and technique. Even though we would eventually compete against each other, our ever-supportive employees did not hesitate to help out a coworker in need.
After our quick training session and a couple of practice rounds, we dove into a fierce tournament. Our office competed amongst ourselves in two teams until each team had a winner. As we worked our way through the brackets, those not competing cheered on their designated team while others called out tips to help their teammate win.
It was anyone’s game, but ultimately the two winners, Media Buyer Steve Nguyen and Senior Business Analyst Steve Jones competed to be the office champion (pictured below). The entire office gathered around to cheer them on as the two were neck and neck in the competition, even down to the last throw. Although both Steve’s put up some hefty competition, Steve Nguyen took home the champion title!
