On Tuesday, February 20th, a select team of Crosskey Bowlers ventured down the harrowing I-91 corridor to participate in the all-Connecticut Olympics themed Bowling Night, presented by the AIA Connecticut’s Emerging Professionals Committee. The athletes found themselves enjoying the networking hour prior to the start of the games, meeting individuals from other Connecticut firms, not just young professionals, but firm principles, product representatives, and other groups from similar professions. After the opening ceremonies, the games commenced and our fearless athletes found themselves next to a skilled team from the Connecticut chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects on one side, and flanked by our Hartford neighbors Tecton Architects, and a team from PES Structural Engineers. The games were tough, but the food and beverages provided by the sponsors were delicious. Everyone bowled spectacularly, but Crosskey’s own Scott Mazzie bowled very well, throwing eight consecutive strikes in his last game!
Truly like the Olympics, this event was not only fun, but a great way to get together with many different groups and people, and network throughout the evening. As the closing ceremonies ended, all went home slightly better bowlers, and with a few more business cards in their pockets. Many thanks to everyone who helped make it possible; all the sponsors, as well as Adrienne Nelson and Arturo Arroyo from the Emerging Professionals Committee, and Pat O’Brien from AIA Connecticut.
