The Beat the Boss Challenge wrapped up at the end of April and those participants that finished strong in the month of April were given a chance to win a FitBit in the monthly drawing. Luck smiled upon Mike at our last Safety Meeting and he won the FitBit. Not only that, but in a battle of whits in a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors Mike found himself in the top three finalists. The final determinant for the grand prize of a week’s paid vacation and a cruise was who out of the three finalists had the higher percentage of body fat lost from the beginning of the challenge. Once again, Mike pulled out on top. Congratulations to Mike Priday!! Great job to all participants that achieved a healthier lifestyle.

Congratulations to two of our employee spouses – Katrina Rasmussen and Stephanie Ashby – for winning the March Beat the Boss drawings. Katrina won a gift card to Ruth’s Chris and Stephanie won a FitBit to help her continue on her journey for health. This challenge has been great to be able to include spouses/significant others of the employees. It’s important for everyone to strive to be more healthy.
Chad also provided an opportunity for three of the Beat the Boss contestants that fell short of beating him in the water consumption for March to beat him in a chug off during the Safety Meeting. Marco Arana, Joe Hudson and Paul Ashby each took a gallon of water against Chad to see who could drink the most of the gallon in 30 seconds. Chad awarded each of them their names be entered in the drawing for March prizes another time. Sadly, none of them won the drawings, but it was all in good fun.

Congratulations to Allen Rasmussen for winning the February Beat the Boss challenge drawing for dinner and a movie! Employees worked hard to try to beat Chad Magleby in the categories of fruit/vegetable consumption, time working out, and a higher decrease in body fat %. Allen was one of a few who beat Chad in at least one category to put their name in the drawing. He has been eating better and has been more active and it shows. Great job Allen!

This month’s employee enrichment course is a Concealed Carry class taught by Discreet Tactical. It will be on March 21st (Saturday) at the office and will last 4 hours, starting at 8am and ending at noon. Magleby will cover the training cost for employees and their spouse ($40 value), but each employee/spouse will be responsible for the state fees (about $69). The state fees will cover your background check and creation of your ID card and applicants have 1 year to submit their paperwork to the state from the date of the class. You’ll get the instruction, a picture for your ID card, and fingerprint cards at the class. Friends can also attend the class, but will need to pay the training cost as well as the state fees. We’ll need at least 10 people to sign up for the class with a hard yes – meaning they will definitely be in attendance – in order to hold the class. Please let me know if you, your spouse and/or your friends would like to come. Please reply to sign up by March 18th.
