RedShelf's executive team prepped and planned for the 2nd Annual Company Retreat to take place when everyone (even our West Coast sales team) was in town. Secretively enough, the only thing the RedShelf team members knew was to make no plans for the July 11th weekend and to expect to be gone from 9am on Saturday until 5pm on Sunday.
Immediately discussions surrounding the retreat broke out around the office with everyone making their own guesses of where we were going. Some guessed Starved Rock State Park while others were sure we were headed to the Wisconsin Dells. These guesses went on for weeks and days leading up to the retreat until the big reveal!
Surprise! The team was heading to Galena, IL for a fun packed weekend full of awesome activities. Check out a brief photo recap of the team's trip below!
Next activity on the list: visit the Galena Wine Cellar located right in downtown on the Main Street strip. What was our favorite you ask? With a group full of unique individuals, everyone was able to find a wine that suited their palette!
Once the sun cleared up, we drove up through the hills towards Chestnut Mountain Resort to check out their raved about Alpine Slides! With such a competitive group, everyone wanted to race one another down the slide. Talk about scary yet thrilling! Everyone went flying down the slide and enjoyed a beautiful scenic ski lift ride back up the hill!
Where were we off to next? A dinner and cruise on the Mississippi River! The team changed into their dinner attire and headed towards the dock to board the boat! A great meal, good music, and incredible view were enjoyed by all the RedShelf team members.
Following a delicious brunch on Sunday morning, the team headed to Lacoma Golf Course for a round of 9 holes! Teams were made with some golf pros and those that have never golfed before! Can you guess who won?!
After an action packed company retreat, the team headed back to Chicago and flew back to the West Coast for some much needed R&R before heading back into the office on Monday! The RedShelf team appreciates all the executives and especially our Co-Founders, Tim and Greg, who planned an AWESOME 2nd Annual Retreat! We're already counting down to next year's!
