Well September came and went, but not without a bang. Pulp Studio held their National Sales Meeting from September 26-28. Sorry you all couldn’t be there but the two days was full of discussing old painful issues to leaning about new exciting products. We even were treated to a single Jeopardy game where the salespeople learn and cover old ground in a game setting.
But the highlight of every national sales meeting is the Saturday night event. This is always kept a secret until we get there and this year was not only special but a true Los Angeles experience. The night started out with cocktails at the hotel, nothing new there. We all boarded a bus, once again , nothing new there. Where we arrived? A truly unique event featuring women’s roller derby on a full-size and very serious banked track. We were all treated to an evening at the L.A Derby Dolls (www.derbydolls.com) which is an all female, amateur banked track skating league. This isn’t the fake stuff that we used to watch on TV. No, this is serious stuff and they play to win. In fact, one of the girls on the team FIGHT CREW even had her nose broken. Yikes! In the end the experience was definitely fun and something completely different. The beer was cold and the rock band at half-time kept the group jumping and the lead singer in her leopard print outfit (who had to be at least 60 years old. I swear) was happening!
Lastly a big shout to our own Derby Doll, Rachel House (aka Marina Del Rage when she is in doll attire). Rachel skates for FIGHT CREW and did a stellar job in leading the team to a win. I am sure she won’t agree with that claim, but she is our family and in any family we like to brag about our own. Rachel works as a graphics project manager. GO RAGE!
Next year is right around the corner and who knows what’s next?
