2019 Family Picnic
Fun times abound at Smokey Glen Farms
Oct 02, 2019
On September 29th, The A-Team came out to enjoy food, fun, and games at Asymmetrik’s 2019 Family Picnic. What a great way to cap off the summer!
Over 160 employees and families gathered at Smokey Glen Farms in Gaithersburg, making this our biggest and best Family Picnic yet. Since the company keeps growing, this was a fantastic way for everyone to get to know each other outside of the office. Between all the new employees, new babies, and family members, we welcomed a ton of awesome people to The A-Team this year.
Sunday’s weather was perfect for hanging out all afternoon. Since we’ve had some pretty rainy Family Picnics before, we were grateful for blue, sunny skies this time around.
As always, the food was delicious and plentiful. We feasted on barbecued chicken, spare ribs, cucumber salad, pasta salad, and baked beans. Of course, we made sure to save room for Smokey Glen’s famous charcoal-baked blueberry, blackberry, and apple pies topped with ice cream.
After lunch, there was no shortage of things to do. We had a blast playing cornhole, volleyball, and minigolf. It was the perfect opportunity to get a little competitive while still cheering each other on.
A DJ provided the perfect backdrop to all the fun and games including face painting, caricatures, bubble wands, a bounce house, and lots of hula hoops. And where there are hula hoops, there are hula hooping contests. Although, we quickly discovered that we’re far better technologists than hula hoopers.
All in all, our 2019 Family Picnic was a huge success. You can check out more pics on Facebook (we even managed to take a semi-decent aerial drone photo). If you’d like to join the fun too, feel free to check out our careers page. Maybe we’ll see you at next year’s Family Picnic!
