We’re now into July, which means we’re more than halfway through 2015 already…seriously, where has the time gone? We’re coming off a fantastic month of June that was fun for 3 big reasons: Our 17th anniversary, a staff outing, and the FAB 5 VIP BASH at Bowl Expo.
If you didn’t already know, we celebrated our 17th Anniversary on June 17. Our entire team is proud of what we’ve accomplished so far, and we can’t wait to continue growing the company and releasing new features for our customers.
A couple days before heading to Las Vegas for Bowl Expo, our company hosted a staff outing. We’ve grown enough that we actually have employees in 3 different states, so it’s always fun when we can have everyone at the headquarters in California for a big get-together. As would be appropriate in our industry, the event was at a bowling alley! Scott, our President, had to show off his bowling skills, and he easily had the best score…shh, don’t tell him that we let him win. Below, you can see him striking a pose as he bowled a strike. What a show-off!
After our company rendezvous in California, it was time to head to Bowl Expo. The show was a fantastic success, and we enjoyed catching up with existing customers as well as signing up some new centers! The highlight of the trip was the FAB 5 VIP BASH that we co-hosted with TrainerTainment, Creative Works, Bowling Music Network, and Redemption Plus. We have worked with these awesome partners to host this customer appreciation event multiple times, and it has grown in scale each year.
This year, the event was located in the private loft at Cabo Wabo Cantina, overlooking the Las Vegas strip. The venue could fit up to 250 people, and we needed every bit of space to accommodate everyone. Customers were given a red carpet experience (complete with fun glasses and hats from Redemption Plus) along with free drinks and appetizers. Each vendor gave a short speech during a break in the party, thanking all of the customers for their support. This portion of the night was especially meaningful for the TrainerTainment team, as they were celebrating their company’s 10th birthday.
The music and entertainment were provided by Bowling Music Network, and they kept the party going throughout the event. Some people hit the dance floor, some chatted and socialized with other operators, and some even celebrated their wedding anniversary!

This event was a great way to cap off the month of June, and we look forward to continue the FAB 5 tradition in the future!
