We think it is important to spend time as a team outside of work. For the summer of 2011, we decided it would be fun to go to a Royals game together. We have seen 100 degree days for the past couple of weeks so we ended up in air conditioned Suite 29, right over 1st base. The game started at 7pm and there was a lot of excitement at the end… the game went to 11 innings and the Royals won it when Alex Gordon stole home!

A couple of people were late arriving because they were working late helping our clients! It was amazing to see every single person from our staff at the game. It is hard to get 100% participation with so many schedules involved, but we planned far enough out to give everyone time to get it locked in on the calendar. We had a great time at the game, even though the temperature around 6pm was around 104 degrees! If you haven’t been to the stadium since they did all the renovations, you really need to check it out. Here are a couple of pictures showing how amazing the stadium looks now!
