My boss has had a long-standing program to encourage prompt meeting attendance – if you are late, you owe a buck. Once the pool grows to a C-note we donate it to a worthy cause (last time it went to Jack’s Heart Fund). This time my boss made an online ballot using our Encompass product and asked us all to cast a vote. He added me to the ballot because of this project and I was just tickled. To the amazement of us both, I won!
I am deeply appreciative of the support from my coworkers and friends in the development team. I promised to post what I purchased with those funds and you will find it very fitting – it is a cylinder to replace the center column which will hold the majority of the weight of the enclosure (approximately 1600 pounds) and allows for up to 16 inches of heave.
I think it would be great as a group to take the simulator to Children’s Mercy (one of our clients) when it is finished. The feeling is priceless!
