Our Annual Pre Memorial Day Barbecue Bonanza kicked off with Nomadic employees excited to chow down on grilled sensations, catch up with coworkers and compete in the highly anticipated “watermelon seed spitting" contest.

Shortly after the award ceremony wrapped up, where Paul Collins received a gift for his 15th year at Nomadic Display, the “watermelon seed” spitting contest began. While some Nomadic employees had a dedicated technique and gave it their all, others tried to “wing it” with quirky maneuvers.

So who ended up having the most powerful lungpower, speed and trajectory? Kristen Olsson and Ryan Wallis sent their "watermelon seeds" soaring over 30' to take 1st Place.  Our winners did not leave empty handed and were awarded trophies for their top talents and will have to compete again next year to maintain the right to display their trophy at their desks.

Closing ceremonies included a lively dance off in the parking lot. See below our real time sequential diary right as the barbecue bonanza unfolded:
