Bowling, beer, pizza, and lots of fun!

That was the recipe for our 3rd annual employee appreciation party hosted at The Mark bowling alley in Elkhorn. If you know Lycos, you know we know how to have a good time. Whether it's a company get together inside the office or out, you can guarantee you'll leave with a full belly and a story to tell.

This year, we had the opportunity to combine forces with our two partner companies, Ruck Specialties and Ruck Cabinet Doors and throw a bowling extravaganza nobody will be able to forget.

From 12:00pm to 1:00pm, we all gathered in our reserved room to sit, relax, and eat delicious food. The menu? Only the essentials: wings, chips, dip, lettuce wraps (for our keto friends), and lots and lots of pizza!

After lunch, from 1:00-3:00pm, it was time to kick back, relax, and of course, bowl. With three companies and over 100 employees, we gave each person a random lane to bowl to help everyone get to know each other better. Laughs were had, and new friends were made! After everyone's games, it was time to determine the winners. After all, would it be a Lycos party if there was no competition? There were four prizes given to four teams: 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, and last place. On top of that, there were individual prizes for Most Strikes and Most Gutterballs.

All in all, Lycos's 3rd annual employee appreciation party was an ultimate success and fun was had by all. We are extremely grateful for our team and truly believe each and every one of them plays an important role in the company's success. So thank you to our employees for coming out and celebrating with us - we don't know where we'd be without you.

The Lycos Team Does It Again

There's no arguing the holidays are the best time of year. Beautiful decorations, delicious food, ugly Christmas sweaters, and of course, holiday parties. Here at Lycos, we work hard day in and day out, but don't let that fool you. We still know how to have some fun. This year, our annual holiday party was held at the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Council Bluffs, IA and it was a night to remember. Full of good food and good drinks, our team celebrated the holiday season in the best way possible: all together.

The Details

Our reserved space was fully equipped with our own bar and buffet table filled with yummy appetizers, a prime rib dinner, delicious desserts, and of course, lots of alcohol.

After dinner, we all played a fun white elephant-esque gift exchange game. The gift we were exchanging? Casino chips of all different values ranging from $1 to $100. And then it was off to the races! AKA the casino. There was money gained, money lost, but most importantly, lots of fun.

Overall, it was a great night and a great way to spend time together to close out another awesome year.

Employee appreciation is defined as an unofficial holiday to recognize, praise, and thank employees for all of their hard work to the company.

Here at Lycos, we believe every employee on our team plays an important role in the company's success. Simply put: we wouldn't be where we are today without them. From the manufacturing team, to the finish installation crews, to our office staff, we appreciate every one's hard work and dedication.

This past June, to show our gratitude, we held our employee appreciation party at The Mark in Elkhorn, NE.

Is there anything better than spending a Friday afternoon eating good food, drinking beer, and bowling with your favorite co-workers?

Bowling Employee Appreciation

From 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM, we all got to kick back, relax, and enjoy quality time together. Teams of 6 were randomly assigned across 10 lanes with each team playing 2 games. And of course, we had a competition. There were three prizes given to three teams: first place, second place, and last place. Whoever had the highest average score of all bowlers took the prize.
