Forward Solutions Team Bowling Activity22 March 2013
It’s been a long time since the last activity of Forward Solutions Team (the company Christmas Party) and our team decided that we should have an activity every month. At first we were thinking of playing Badminton or joining a sponsored fun run, but majority of us are not very sporty and competitive; we just want to have fun while playing. After a couple of discussions, the team decided to play bowling at Coronado Lanes in Starmall Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City.
The time is exactly 5 o’clock when we left the office to go to Starmall. Since our building is located along EDSA Mandaluyong (only a few blocks away from Starmall), we took the MRT route (we didn’t use the elevator going up); and that served as our warm up exercise before the bowling game. As soon as we got to the place, we reserved two lanes because we intended to play girls versus boys. The entire team is comprised of 8 boys and 5 girls — because of the inequality, our two bosses joined the girls’ team.
Our CEO was the first one to roll the ball; he said it was his first time to play but we highly doubt it because it was challenging for him not to get a strike nor a spare. We had fun rolling the ball and cheering our teammates and even though the balls are quite heavy, we managed to finish the game.
You might be asking who won the game — of course the girls’ team with the help of our CEO! The fun and exciting bowling game we had made our tummies rumble and we headed to Max’s Restaurant for dinner.
A company activity helps employees to relax and de-stress from work. Team building activities are helpful in developing the team’s camaraderie not only as co-workers but as friends.
