I’ve never seen anything like this…

Continuing with the fun of Quell Week, we spent yesterday afternoon at Sky High Sports. We bounced around on a massive trampoline, played dodge ball, and got to dive into large pits full of foam (it was just as entertaining to watch people try to get out of the foam pit as it was to watch them dive into it.) You can see photos here.

What was really interesting to me was an interaction that I had with our dodge ball referee.

He does this stuff for a living, so believe it or not, he’s seen his fair share of “massive trampoline” dodge ball matches. At one point during our match, he turned to me and said “I’ve never seen anything like this before.”

Was it the intensity of the competition? The amount of fun we were having (at a work function)? The way that we started making up our own rules to increase the difficulty (and in turn, increase the fun) of the game?

I don’t know.

But I do know that we get that reaction a lot …usually when someone visits our office for the first time, or when we’re out in public at a company event.

“I’ve never seen anything like this” is a really good way to sum up what it’s like to see this company in action.
