Fierce Competition at the TechFlash Summer BBQ & Ping-Pong Tournament

7/29/10

There was some serious action going on last night at TechFlash’s second annual Summer BBQ and Ping-Pong Tournament. With over 400 in attendance, techies from far and wide traded in their smartphones for paddles, and battled it out for the championship.

For the less athletically inclined, there was also the first ever foosball competition, and an award for the team with the most spirit (i.e. the zaniest costumes…I mean uniforms), which went to social media agency Banyan Branch, whose mascot could only be described as ‘shaggy.’ (See pictures here).

In the final match up in the expert ping-pong division, defending champion Valeri Kim, from Bellevue, WA-based tech consulting company Akvelon, took on Minh Le from the Silicon Valley Bank. In the end Kim, who came equipped with his own Akvelon jersey, took home the title.
