First annual kickball tournament
A day in the life...
It was a Thursday afternoon, but we turned off our computers, put on our running shoes and headed to Piedmont Park for the first annual F&D Kickball Tournament and fall celebration.
The four teams had members of the audit, tax and operations departments. The players came from mid-town Atlanta, Alpharetta and even Nashville. While we expected the new hires to dominate the play the Partners were not to be outdone. Tax Partner Andy Burnett slid into second to start a four run inning that lead the blue team to a victory. On the red team, Audit Partner Shawn Fowler pitched two no-kick innings. Andrew Jeter and Bob Adams did their part to represent Nashville Audit’s kickball prowess. David Deeter, fresh from a client meeting, joined the crowds on the sidelines to cheer on our coworkers.
After two competitive kickball games, we concluded that F&D has some of the best kickball players in the accounting field. Or at least Piedmont Park on a Thursday at 4PM.
When the tournament ended we headed to the celebration at Park Tavern. The Tim Cadiere Band played our favorite country songs while everyone from our Founders and the Managing Partner to our newest new hires played corn hole and bocce ball. It was a wonderful way to spend a beautiful fall afternoon.
Work hard. Play Hard. And try not to kick a pop-up straight at the outfielder.
