Retreat Highlights

Our junior high and high school teams plus spouses returned yesterday from a fantastic four day retreat. A few highlights:

- The realization that over 1/3 of our team has been with us for less than 2 years.
- Our PDYM quiz (very interesting to see the rookies on the team do so well!).
- Working through the 'Elements' that make up our team culture.
- Playing 'speed frisbee' in the pool (that's not the name we all call it....but I don't think we call it by any name).
- A massive bowl of delicious guacamole.
- Getting to know our newest team members a little bit better.
- Beating Matt Hall at golf (a rare occurrence).
- Riding the elevator with Hulk Hogan's wife and daughter.
- Waiting 2.5 hours for food at Red Robin (really more like a low light).
- Lots laughs, lots of great conversation and lots of relaxation.

I miss speed frisbee. Last year was the inagural season. What was the record this year?

I'm courious about the PDYM quiz. Is there a way to see this?

Kurt Johnston said...

Our intern director ran this part and it was really fun. We made it a verbal, trivia style, quiz with a prize for the first person to answer each question. We just went through the book and listed about 20 of the 'biggies' like:

-Name our five potential audiences
-Quote our purpose statement
-What is the formula for coming up with our programs.

Etc.
