Our 3rd Annual Cornhole Tournament

Playing Cornhole (also known as Corn Toss, Bean Bag, Bean Toss, Soft Horseshoes, Indiana Horseshoes, and more) – has become an annual tradition here at Stormy Kromer.  For the third summer in a row, employees paired off into teams and played in our very competitive, double-elimination tournament.

This year’s tourney counted 18 teams, representing every department of the company.  Playing in our parking lot (or warehouse on rainy days), the teams battled it out during their morning breaks and lunchtimes, with many matches attracting a number of spectators.

Complete with popcorn for the excited fans, our Championship Match featured Carol & Dennis vs. Tim & Denise.  While the crowd was hoping for a competitive and lengthy match, Carol & Dennis remained undefeated and cruised to victory with a score of 15-6.

Our Champions received a cash prize, but more importantly, earned the right to proudly display the prestigious Cornhole Trophies which will stay at their work stations until next year’s tournament.  Last year’s winners, Rick & Larry, begrudgingly handed them over at our Trophy Presentation on August 29th.

Congratulations to Carol & Dennis (in yellow), and thanks to all of our 2012 teams for participating!

What’s a Kromerism?

If you follow us on Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest, you probably have seen us use the word “Kromerism.”  So just what is it?

Simply put, a Kromerism is a comment George “Stormy” Kromer might make on the world of 2012.  A world far different than the one that caused him to invent the iconic cap.  We like to think he’d have something to say about things like smart phones, cubicles and 21st century fashion.

They started out as simple tweets (they’re the most popular thing we do on Twitter), and have now turned into graphics as well.  We may even turn a few into posters, so stay tuned.

These are a few of our current favorites.  Stay connected with us through all our social media channels to catch the new ones as they come out.

Now it’s your turn: what commentary do YOU think ol’ Stormy would make on the world today?
