Have we ever told you how much we love the great outdoors here
at Tec Labs? You would think it would be obvious, being that we've
created and manufactured products for outdoor workers, adventurers,
and enthusiasts for over 50 years… However, sometimes the obvious
isn't so obvious to some, so state the obvious I must!
Now, onto the reason for this post…
Each month Tec has a company-wide meeting where we gather
together to share compliments, brush up on company financials,
check on the status of goals, and most importantly, to have a
beautifully catered lunch and (hopefully) get bonuses! Just kidding
about those last two being the most important, although they are
pretty noteworthy, as any Teccie (Tec Labs employee) would tell
you! It's simply an occasion to come together as a work family to
appreciate one another, and catch up on the happenings of each
department! This tradition of "Bagel Meetings" began years ago in
the "early days" of Tec (named so aptly for its menu selection),
and continues today although, the menu has broadened beyond
To keep things fun and interesting, we like to take these
monthly meetings off-site once a quarter. For the month of August,
two of Tec's teams came together to create a fun experience for
all. The Wellness Team and the Special Ops Team decided that a trek
to the scenic and historic Silver Falls State Park in Silverton, OR
was in order.
So off we went with our sack lunches, hiking gear, and
ironically, only one bottle of Tecnu® for a group of 20.
Yes, that's right, all but one of us forgot to pack our Tecnu
(Thanks Mary!). How's that for irony?! Next time, we
will make a list! Luckily, the trails were clear, and not one
poison oak plant was spotted during our journey through the lush
greenery of Silver Falls.
From our family of adventurers to yours,
Live life. Get outdoors!
