2nd Annual Kan Jam Tournament
The sun was shining with a light breeze on the spring afternoon of May 1st, for the second annual Kan Jam tournament at Vistaprint in Lexington, Massachusetts. The tournament was run by employees in the finance department, slowly catching on and including other departments.
Kan Jam teams were randomly selected to allow people the opportunity to get to know new people within the office. The stakes were high with 32 people in 16 different teams playing in the tournament. Games were played single elimination style, but side games continued to keep everyone involved once eliminated. The teams worked their way down to the final two pairings.
The finale looked like it was going to be a competitive showdown between veterans Ryan and Jonathan versus newcomers Ted and Matt. Who would walk away with a new Kan Jam set to kick start their summer festivities? The newcomers Ted and Matt proved that they were not afraid of the challenge and took the early lead and kept going with what seemed to be an effortless championship win. Amazing things can happen when people work well together!
After the win, all the participants enjoyed drinks and light snacks to unwind and start their weekend. We are looking forward to more summertime activities in the office in the coming months.
