Bend's tech community got a dose of friendly competition recently as the folks from G5 and Manzama battled it on the kickball sloshball field. What's sloshball you say? Well it's like kickball, but you hold a beer the entire time you're playing. I feel like your arm might get tired, but sounds like everything turned out OK.

Bend’s tech community got a dose of friendly competition recently as the folks from G5 and Manzama battled it on the kickball  sloshball field. What’s sloshball you say? Well it’s like kickball, but you hold a beer the entire time you’re playing. I feel like your arm might get tired, but sounds like everything turned out OK.

In fact, Jessica Couch, Manzama’s marketing manager, reports that there were no injuries. No pulled hammies. Just some fun in the rain at Harmon Park. The two companies will battle again next month in a trivia competition.

These people make software.
G5 and Manzama on the battlefield.
