May the Best Corporation Win

2007 Portland Corporate Games Champions
Last Year's Champions: Unisource

This is one Olympic tournament no one will be protesting. The 3rd annual Portland Corporate Games have commenced—a month-long battle of brains, brawn and 401Ks in which local companies compete for an engraved trophy and bragging rights around the water cooler. The proceeds, from entry fees ($495-$2,495) as well as a silent auction at the June 7 closing ceremony, will go to Special Olympics Oregon. Director Mark Dominguez says the games are a way to boost company morale and work better as a team. Hey, it works on The Office, right?

Games include the standard field-day fare—softball, basketball, volleyball—but also include some unusual challenges such as miniature golf, laser tag and Texas Hold ‘Em. On Tuesday, company teams will run a 5K race at Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation Center with 40 points up for grabs to the first place winner. The run comes after a heated volleyball match at the Barnes Road Bally Total Fitness last night, where Triquint crushed the Orthopedic & Fracture Clinic. Now Poster Garden holds the overall lead, but can Aloha Dog and Cat rise to the challenge even in last place? To keep up with the head-to-head heat of the suits and ties, visit
