This picturesque Kansas City suburb is a great place to spend an afternoon
What does a love for all things Parkville and team building look like? A recipe for some out-of-the-office fun!
On an early summer day in June, the entire Evolytics team put on their team-specific colored bandanas and their thinking caps, and headed out for a fun-filled, thought-provoking adventure to hunt for all things Parkville. Six teams had a set of 20 clues, and the option of 5 photo opportunities to earn as many points as possible to be declared the winning team. Over an hour, each team scoured downtown Parkville and surrounding areas racking up points by answering clues such as:
- Original power plant for the university
- Proof the city was founded in 1875 by George S. Park
Or by taking team photos with prompts such as:
- Senior picture/prom/homecoming poise
- Airplay Instruments
- Team selfie!
Once the hour was up, all of the teams met at a local ice cream shop to cool off, enjoy a tasty treat, and to determine the winner.
The winning team was the Blue team, comprised of Tom Wilkins, Evan Vermilyea, Jennifer Riddle, Jeff Wilbert, and Keith Kennedy. The blue team members won gift cards to local Parkville eateries and a “key” to the city!
In the end, we were all winners!
We were afforded the time to spend with fellow team members from our office to de-stress and build our working relationships through some friendly competition. Plus, with an amazing office space overlooking the heart of Parkville, how could you pass up this opportunity!
