Who had fun at the 9th Annual BBQ on the Bay?

Posted By Rachael Osberger, Human Resources inc., Friday, July 12, 2013

Hello Again! I want to start out by congratulating BBQ Co-Chairs, Don Nippard of Skyline Technology and Karen +Sutter of The Sutter Group, as well as Kris Shock and Gretchen Snow of the CRTC and the rest of the BBQ Planning Committee. Thank you for all of your time and effort planning and executing such a seamless event!

Where to begin? The day was a little nerve wracking – it looked like the skies would open up at any moment, but Mother Nature decided to play nice and give us the perfect backdrop for the BBQ.

To all of my fellow attendees – how did you get to the BBQ? Who rode the water taxi? Did you end up on the party bus compliments of Mother’s? And who docked their own boat? Feel free to leave a comment – I’m sure we’d all love to hear fun stories!

Wow – time flew by - didn’t it? I barely felt like I was working! There was such a variety of professionals from as many different industries that it was hard to end one conversation and start another. Everyone seemed to really embrace the spirit of the event; everyone I met was friendly, willing to share ideas and best practices, and if a little schmoozing happened, all the better! I couldn’t believe it when I started noticing other sponsors packing up their tables – I wasn’t ready for the night to end!

How good was the food? Sausage with peppers, meatballs, pulled pork, coleslaw, baked beans, veggie skewers, and a ton of other mouthwatering options I can’t remember. Did anyone else notice the amazing spiral fruit tower?!? 

Our night at the HRi table was well worth it. I would like to say that people stopped by to speak with us about Human Resources and learn more about our company, but I think the BBQ Bingo card, and rumors of silly putty and my crab basket ended up being the main draw. By the way, my crab basket was a huge hit – I received so many compliments and was even told to open up a side business – imagine that! Congratulations to Rich Mittleman (and his wife) of Convergence Technology. He was our big winner!

A special thank you to Wendy Hickock for beautifully capturing the event. I was looking at the BBQ Album on Facebook and was thinking that I can’t wait to go again next year.

Speaking of next year, it’s a big one – the 10th Annual CRTC BBQ on the Bay! I can’t wait to see what will happen – maybe they will have Cocktail with Tom Cruise playing on the TVs in the fancy port-a-potties.

P.S. Stay tuned for the BBQ video – it will be online soon…
