What if I told you that you could have a chance to relive your elementary school recess days? Most of us would jump at that chance. (I’m speaking for the general population here — not the people, like me, who spent their recess time doing cartwheels and picking dandelions while the other kids played real games.)

Today, the NimbleUser team had that opportunity and fully embraced it. We had our very first combined pig roast and potluck with our downstairs building neighbors, Synoptek. We had a ton of fun, and it didn’t take long before a Friday afternoon lunch break turned itself into a recess blast from the past.
As you probably guessed, I sat back and observed — Truly surprising, I know. I realized some interesting things as I watched the activities unfold:

  1. Any stereotype you’ve heard about tech people not being athletic is incorrect. I’ve never seen people dive to the ground in 4-square… until today. If that’s how they play now, can you imagine them on the playground in elementary school? If you don’t believe me, check out the highlights and some of the signature moves below. And you thought these people were only good at Nimble AMS…ha!
  2. There’s nothing wrong with being the cartwheeling kid. We all have our different talents and hobbies. That’s what makes us such a diverse and interesting group of people and also what makes these events so entertaining.
  3. These people really are great. We work hard, but we definitely know how to play hard, too. We are super competitive, but we are also each other’s cheerleaders. Really – how cool is that?


Overall, it was a great event and a much needed break for the NimbleUser team. We will take any excuse to enjoy the beautiful Rochester summer weather. Check out our photos from the event on Facebook!
