We had a putt-putt tournament at the agency the other day to benefit United Way. This was a lot of fun. It was a 9-hole course and each hole was concepted and built by department teams all over the building. Quite a bit of engineering went into these designs. For example, the Media team built theirs at the top of the curved staircase in the lobby. You had to hit your ball up a steep ramp and if you did it right, it went into a miles-long plastic tube (the kind you use for landscape drainage) and it went down the stairs and curved around into a little area at the bottom of the stairs that is just perfect for this.
Here’s Boz and Paul putting the finishing touches on it.
The Accounting department created a Las Vegas casino-themed hole. I think they won first prize for creativity.
Account Management designed theirs with some of our clients in mind. Overseeing the hole is one of the GEICO Cavemen (with Hanes undies on his head for some reason), UPS shipping boxes, a BF Goodrich tire and a Hanes bra. Ok, they’re suits, not creatives, all right?
I’m thinking this was a Hollywood theme but I didn’t know the people on this team and didn’t ask. Media and creatives rarely interact 🙂
A lot of beer was consumed, we had a lot of laughs and there was a lot of public humiliation. All for charity. Sweet.
