Teams were built, (fashion) statements were made, no windows were broken. These were a few of the successes of Ring & Du’s first-ever Office Open miniature golf tournament held at the Ring & DuChateau offices August 9. Nearly 50 staff members took time out of their day to brave the challenging course cleverly designed by teams of R&D staff.
Hole themes included Lord of the Ring & Du, 80s Party, Santa’s Trip, Dog Leg, Border Wall and MEP Triathlon, the last of which was played with whiffle balls (hence no broken windows) and included a toilet paper pyramid, hard hat obstacles and a rotating flange in front of the hole. Not surprisingly, it also was named the best-designed hole.
Prizes for the event included PTO hours, R&D apparel and lunch with Dave DuChateau or Paul Albrecht, Ring & DuChateau president and vice president, respectively. An all-employee luncheon followed the event.
