Yesterday in the Icebreaker Portland office, the team celebrated the 1st Annual Icebreaker USA Agricultural & Pastoral Society Show. It’s quite a big tradition in the Kiwi calendar year, and so being a New Zealand company it only seemed right that this ritual was installed on this side of the world.
It’s a day when “agricultural and pastoral interests are celebrated and promoted”, and there are many fun activities on tap for all to enjoy (American’s – it’s sort of like a County Fair). And our show didn’t fall short of craziness – there was animal shearing (although with stuffed not live animals); wood chopping; sheep hearding; gumboot throwing; flower arranging; fruit & vege people-creation – competitions galore.
An awesome day was had and the team can’t wait for next year’s event!
