Our CMO “Bowl & Brew” Annual Social – Ninepins and Nonsense

We brought together our CMO group “outlaws” on February 17 to show their ninepin chops at our annual “Bowl & Brew” in DC. These are the members of our private CMO peer groups and online community.

Who knew that Miss Acubed (aka Alicia A.) carried her own bowling shoes? Or that Sonny G. moonlights as a DJ (aka DLitCMO Group Event Bowling Scoreboarde?) Then there was The Edge (aka Stuart F.), illness who fought the good fight to take home first prize. Sadly, nurse he threw too many gutterballs and was “edged” out from the spotlight.

One our CMO group members threatened to steal the bowling shoes, thinking they would impress his team at their next staff meeting. We finally persuaded him to return them to the front desk.

In the end, we only had room for two winners. They included “Duke” (aka Rob Caskey) and “Saute” (aka John Saaty).

Our annual social brought out the best in our local CMO community, including a penchant for yelling, high-five-ing, and foolery.

Perhaps archery is in our future…

In the past 31 years of my career, I have deliberately avoided broadcasting and grandstanding when it came to social and political moments.

Now it’s different. America is burning, both figuratively and literally. Curfews are standard practice. The origin of “curfew” comes from the French word “couvre-feu.” This literally means cover fire.

And as a thought leader, adviser, coach, and the founder of several diverse professional communities, I can no longer cover the fire with politeness and positive thinking.
