The highly anticipated (and somewhat over-hyped) BEER Pong Tourney with our good friends and neighbours over at Signature Recruiting, finally came to fruition last Friday at the STRIVE offices.
As two very competitive recruiting firms in Vancouver, both teams trained physically and mentally for several months leading up to the event. Rallying behind our team captain, Radko Kunda, STRIVE was eager to get out to an early lead. Unfortunately, Radko’s beer pong expertise lied in the BEER part rather than the PONG component. Co-Founder of Signature, Rupinder Gill had mastered an assassin-like focus from many hours of meditation between his daily interviews – and it paid dividends in his game. Account Manager, Brittany Lee, was firing on all cylinders and was clearly Signature’s top player. It should be noted that she is currently under investigation by STRIVE for use of PEDs (performance-enhancing drugs) leading up to the event. Sinking back-to-back trick shots, Recruiting Specialist, Leting “Cha-Ching” Cheong put forth STRIVE’s most valiant effort and carried the team on her back to the semi-finals. Needless to say, STRIVE came up just short against a tough Signature squad.
It was an awesome night of two neighbours getting together in an epic night of laughs and pong – all while celebrating the successes of quarter 1.
We are eagerly looking forward to the rematch!
