Once again, CablesandKits has hit another milestone in growth…our best sales month ever! Whether it’s having a cookout that ends with sumo wrestling competitions or zip-lining 50 feet up in the air, the leadership team at CK always finds unique and fun ways to celebrate.

On this occasion, the CK crew played pirates at the Laser Voyage Café. Unlike the pirates of old, we were armed with lasers and fought our cutthroat-style battle in a shadowy and foggy arena. I don’t know what was more fun, shooting at co-workers or watching our CEO Craig run around tagging employees like a madman!

Along with enjoying bouts in the laser arena, we entertained ourselves in the arcade and relived childhood games such as Whac-A-Mole, Skee ball, racing and hunting simulators and hoops. There was even a timed “Laser Maze” that looked like something straight out of “Mission Impossible.” The objective is to get to the other side of a room full of lasers and not trip one. To make it even more challenging, once you reach the other side, you have to go back to complete the round. Needless to say, I unsuccessfully attempted this and I think a few of us ended up with rug burn.

Aside from the Laser Tag itself, my favorite part of the afternoon was gathering around the “Deal or No Deal” arcade game, watching co-workers shout out numbers and hearing their boisterous reactions to the results. We took this game a little too seriously and got some weird looks from the Laser Voyage Café staff, but that is, as they say, how we roll.

Also in true CK fashion, we collaborated and gathered all the tickets we won from the various arcades to buy a Jolly Roger (skull and crossbones) lava lamp. You can see our “loot” appropriately placed near our Coliseum-themed fish tank. One of our unspoken rules at CK is we work hard and we play hard. All in all, everyone had a blast and for an afternoon, I think we all felt like kids again.

We definitely want to thank Craig and the leadership team for hosting this awesome event. I think the question now on everyone’s mind is when (not if) we’ll top our best month ever, how will we celebrate next time? It’s exciting to think about the future and the tremendous growth we’ve had in the last year alone!

What types of celebrations does your company hold?
