Every once in a while my staff comes up with an interesting idea...
Just this past Tuesday, one of my college summer staffers (Jake) comes into my office & says (asks), "Hey Ron, what would you say if we had a little contest to attract some attention?"
Well, of course! Why wouldn't our company want to draw good attention to itself? And so was birthed the interesting & very fun idea of the Par Pool & Spa / Port-O-Pong Challenge. This is going to be fun!
This is why I've always chosen to hire college students. Over the years you, my customers & I have been truly blessed some of the best young & women (a few) to grace a swimming pool and spa supply store. I am told on a regular basis how articulate, patient, will to learn (sometimes make mistakes), but most of all courteous and kind they are to each and every one of our customers. This year's batch is just that. Above, left to right, you see Gabe, Josh (both new for 2016) and Jake (the idea guy of the Challenge and a returnee from 2015).
Anyway, back to the Challenge... Here's the short & sweet of it:
When & Where: The Par Pool & Spa / Port-O-Pong Challenge will take place each and every Saturday afternoon in July (2, 9, 16, 23 & 30) from 1 pm to 3 pm Eastern Time at our store located at 478 River Rd, Shelton, CT (in the Oakdale Plaza).
Who: any of our staff (Jake, Josh or Gabe) vs anyone 18 years of age or older who wish to participate. You choose who you want to challenge.
Why: because we want to have some fun on a Saturday afternoon.
Winners & Losers: we'll have both, but no one will be a complete "Loser". Each Individual Game Challenge Winner will receive a Challenge T Shirt plus a Par Pool & Spa $10.00 Gift Certificate. "Losers" will receive a Challenge T shirt. There will be one Daily "high score" winner who will receive an additional prize. A Challenge Play-Off will take place on Saturday, July 30 from 2 pm to 3 pm among the non-staff winners to determine a Grand Prize Winner!
