Blue Ballers Win Dig South’s Digathlon
This past weekend the Blue Ion crew participated in Dig South’s first annual Digathlon at The Alley. It was an awesome event with participants from some of the top tech companies in the area. The competition was fierce, but ultimately, there was no match for the Blue Ballers who won and walked away with the coveted Golden Keg, a case of beer & a $100 gift card to myPhoneMD.
The Digathlon consisted of 10 events, all unique in required skill set, which really played to our strengths as the Blue Ballers are well versed in arcade games, sports, bull riding (surprisingly), and most of all, drinking.
Below are the events as well as some action shots & videos:
1.) Hipster Javelin – Tubular throws
2.) Dig Skeeter – Skeeball
3.) Buck Off – Mechanical Bull Riding
4.) Drop Zone – Flying machines
5.) Karaoke-Doke – Karaoke
6.) Geek/Freak Chic – Costume contest
7.) Kingpin – Bowling
8.) Game On – Ms. Pacman and Galaga
9.) Hot Box – Arcade Boxing Bag Punch
10.) Hoopster – Arcade Basketball
Of course, when you’re on top of the mountain, you get some love, but you also get some hate. The Twitter-sphere was blowing up throughout the competition:
Twitter Hate (only one person…)
The Championship Golden Keg at our bar… where it belongs!
