BRS 2016 Summer Olympics
When the world has an Olympics, BRS has one too.
Every 2 years, BRS staff challenge each other and their own limits in our own Office Olympics.
Because our employees have come from all around the nation, teams were organized to let everyone celebrate and represent their home region.
Teams created their own unique name, team uniform and a ‘regional refreshment’ to share with all participants.
After getting limber, the competition raged throughout the afternoon with six events designed as the ultimate test of teamwork.
Track & Field
Always a classic, the combined three-legged race / sack potato race / wrap your partner in toilet paper relay was a fierce competition.
Or something like volleyball. There was a net and a ball and teams of four, but we threw in a no-hands rule and a bunch of pool noodles. A lot more fun.
Will never be the same.
We love all animals at BRS, so to avoid any harm (and the mess), contestants had to build their own horse to ride in this obstacle challenge.
Teams of two competed in miniature pool synchronized swimming competition. Routines were judged on overall performance (Wow), costume and music (Flare) and the completion of required moves (Skill).
Teams built their own rowboats for the race down the length of the TAXI Community pool. All team members crossed safely. We cannot say the same for the boats.
The competition was fierce, with drama and emotion to rival any Olympic stage.
Following the awards ceremony, spirits were raised at a pool party to honor the spirit of the games.
Some of us even swam.
With only two short years until the BRS Winter Games of 2018, it’s time for us to start building our luge!
