Yellow vs. Gray: The Battle of the Buzz

A 4 minute read by Allie Blinder, Community Manager

At Swarm, we value transparency, service, hard work, continued improvement and quality. We also value community. We love the community that we have formed with our clients and our partner agencies. Most of all, we love the community that we have created with each other.

From hanging out on the couches enjoying a beer from the beer cart, encouraging each other in our weekly reviews, and brainstorming bold ideas for our clients, we genuinely enjoy each other’s company.

At Swarm, we’re also pretty competitive people. October 14 was not only one of the prettiest days of 2016, but it also marked Swarm’s 2nd Annual Field Day.

Let’s take a look at how the battle between Team Yellow and Team Gray went down.

First of all, check out this view. So many heart eyes emojis.

SCOREBOARD

Team Yellow -  0

While Team Gray may have taken the “V” in kickball, Team Yellow came ready to fight in the relay race.

Yikes, it’s all tied up. As I said before, we’re a hive of competitive people, so the final event, Tug-of-War, took on a whole new meaning.

TEAM GRAY!


Outside of the official competitions, The Hive enjoyed going rogue and riding in the back of pickup trucks, drone racing and refueling with some delicious BBQ.

Field Day 2016 was one for the books and we can’t wait to see who takes the trophy (and bragging rights) home in 2017.
