2019 Summer Culture Squad Events

Oct 16, 2019

At SpinSys, we see how hard our employees work day in and day out. Every so often we like to remind them that it’s important to have some fun too. Every month, our designated Culture Squad sets up an event for the whole team to enjoy! Here are a few highlights from our summer events –

Dave & Busters

Reported by – Tatiana Bolat

The employees at SpinSys were overjoyed when Dave & Busters opened up their new location just 20 minutes away! As soon as the news broke out, the Culture Squad started planning an outing there. We sent out an invite to our employees to join us with their families and it was a great turn out with over 30 people attending! We had some yummy finger foods like quesadillas, chicken wings, pizza, fruits, and vegetables. Both kids and adults were competing to win the most tickets and the majority of them said their favorite games were Jurassic Park and Dirty Drivin’.

Bowling at The Alley

Bowling strikes and lightning strikes? Our bowling night at the Alley in Charleston happened to be a night full of rain and thunder, but that didn’t stop us! As the thunder rumbled outside, we were rolling thunder inside. While one lane was for the kids, the other lane was for the big time bowlers – the adults. The night was filled with appetizers, drinks, laughter, and bowling balls. SpinSys employees had a blast while bonding with coworkers and their families. With strikes and spares all night, bowling was right up our alley!

Hors d’oeuvres Cook-Off

Reported by – Tatiana Bolat

This hors d’oeuvres themed cook-off had a variety of amazing tasty dishes. This showed that we’re more than just “coffee nerds” – we’re skilled cooks as well! Nobody ended up getting sick either (which was great). The winners of this contest were awarded the “Best Cook in the SpinSys N.O.V.A Office” award. Out of 10 dishes, 3 were tied with the best scores. It seems that our office loves buffalo dip, spinach & artichoke dip, and keto spicy cheeseballs!

Cook-Off

The Charleston cook-off was a great way for our employees to show off their cooking skills and get everyone involved in something yummy. With the aprons and the tasty dishes, it was hard to differentiate our employees from chefs. Who knew our employees were such culinary artists? After trying many different dishes and voting, Patrick Hamilton was awarded “Best Cook in the SpinSys Charleston Office.” It turns out that we love lumpia and brownies! Now we know our SpinSys employees have special hidden talents!

Ice Cream Social

Reported by – Tatiana Bolat

Having the summer come to an end is something that many of us fear. Here at SpinSys, we held an end of the summer Ice Cream Social to help make the departure less dreadful. Employees were extremely excited as they indulged in the various options of flavors and toppings. The sugar rush certainly kept our SpinSys family going through that very busy Tuesday.

In-Office Happy Hour

Reported by – Kourtney McIntire and Jordan Nolte

After a long day of work, there is nothing more relaxing than having a Happy Hour in your own office. Our employees were able to socialize, drink alcoholic beverages, and snack on a few trays of food. By sipping and snacking, the team was able to blow off some steam. There’s nothing better than being able to connect with your coworkers over a few drinks!

NOVA Annual Picnic

Reported by – Tatiana Bolat

The Annual Picnic is an outing that is extremely significant for many of us. There are many benefits to hosting a company picnic that go beyond just enjoying the warm weather and seeing everyone’s smiling faces. Company picnics also encourage mingling between employees of different departments, strengthen team bonds, and increase family support.  The weather was certainly on our side that day. Lake Accotink had several fun activities. Our employees and their families were most fond of the carousel and paddle boats and as usual, Mookie’s BBQ did not disappoint. This company picnic is a tradition we hope to carry on for years to come.

Charleston Annual Picnic

Reported by – Kourtney McIntire and Jordan Nolte

The Annual Company Picnic was a day of celebration and fun for the Charleston SpinSys office. Employees brought their families and their furry friends. Some stayed cool under the Red Party Umbrella, while others ventured out into the park. Everyone stuffed their faces with barbecue, chicken, mac and cheese, baked beans, potato salad, and of course, sweet tea. The hot summer day was perfect for outdoor games in the park like the Sprinkler! The day was filled with bringing employees together, celebrating teamwork, and just plain fun!
