That went well, I think.
The food was yum. The hockey was great. The camaraderie was nice.
We made a point of dividing up the hockey teams (Ptarmigans vs. Snow Geese) more than a week in advance to ensure pre-game rivalry. I was on a conference call one day last week when a member of the opposite team peaked his head in my office and yelled "Snow Geese Rule!" The other folks on the call were a bit confused.
More than one person commented that they hope this was the first annual Order of Good Cheer. A small victory.
