The weather was picturesque this past Saturday (5/12) in scenic Medina, Ohio for Briteskies’ 1st semi-annual golf outing of 2012. We’re still working on the name of the outing, a couple options were The Super Sexy Swingers or Lots-a-Lost-Balls, but we haven’t settled on anything and we’re open to suggestions.
The sky was a blue that would’ve perfectly complimented our “Briteskies Orange” had anyone been wearing it. Of those in attendance: Mike Berlin, Tim Reynolds, Derrik Nyomo, Kevin McCarthy, Gina McCrae, Donny McCrae, Chris C and Lee, there were a few of us who chose to begin with cold adult beverages, and then there were the “I don’t drink before noon” sticks-in-the-mud. Or responsible ones; whatever. We divided into two teams, I believe based on level of attractiveness, and proceeded to tee off for our four man scramble round.
What followed was luck, hacking, good golf, poor golf and somehow, our fearless leader Mike Berlin, pulling away with both the longest drive and the closest to the pin shot. Now, I didn’t actually witness either feat, but because I would very, very much like to keep my job, there’s no doubt in my mind that’s really what happened.
It was such an amazing day; we all agreed it was a really great time and we’re working on putting together more summer and fall activities. I could bore you with the specifics of each hole, tell you how good I looked, or how natural of a golfer I am, but if you really want to know you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Instead, I’d like to take a moment to focus on what’s really the important take-away: that Briteskies is an amazing place to work, that we do things together with each other because we want to and that our culture is evident in the friendships we’ve established with one another. After the outing we stopped at rib joint down the street and talked at length about this, that and the locals. I can’t speak for you readers, but I know I don’t hang around with people whose company I don’t enjoy simply as penance. I truly appreciate everyone I work with, and it’s that camaraderie which makes the difficult days that much more tolerable.
It’s almost the same feeling you get when you’re golfing, and you completely whiff the ball; instead of being ridiculed for the rest of the day, the Briteskies team will only make fun of you until you’re on the verge of tears – and then step in and help. In all seriousness, we’re a great group, and we know we can rely on anyone for anything.
