Calgary Corporate Challenge Update: BKDI Races in Urban Orienteering Challenge and Wins the Bronze Medal in Cribbage!
So…did we do enough to secure a spot in the cribbage finals? We are excited to say…we sure did! Friday night the BKDI cribbage team went back to Commonwealth Hall for the Calgary Corporate Challenge (CCC) cribbage finals where we battled for gold. The finals consisted of only 6 games where we had some great hands and pegged many points, however towards the end of the night the cards were no longer in our favour. Our team came in third place and made us proud by bringing home a bronze medal – Congratulations team!
To close out the series of CCC events, four team members exercised their minds and bodies in the Urban Orienteering challenge this past weekend. This event is not for the faint of heart. It was a fierce competition this year and a VERY challenging course to complete. Our team had four hours to finish the set of challenges which had them running, fast walking, and solving puzzles from Eau Claire to City Hall, back and forth on 8th and 9th Avenues, up to 10th Street through Mount Royal & Connaught, 17th Avenue, and back to Eau Claire – Wow, it’s tiring just thinking about it! They crossed the finish line with four minutes to spare finishing in 5th place in our division! Great job team! This is what one team member had to say, “we had a lot of fun and were challenged but worked well together – we were all exhausted by the end of it and look forward to doing it again next year!”.
Congratulations BKDI – on yet another successful year of Corporate Challenge events!
