YOU OUGHTA KNOW!

We are participating in Pray For Snow events in partnership with two local radio stations (NRQ and KZEL). These events will be at the TR on the 2nd Thursday of the month, beginning in November and ending in March. Pray For Snow is a live event focused on snow-based activities (skiing, snowboarding, etc.) with lots of prize giveaways ($20k total in prizes over the five months of events), games, contests, etc. We expect this to bring in a good number of folks new to Block 15 from around the region.

The 6th annual Cameron Merrill’s Legacy Toy Drive begins 12/1! The downtown pub will be accepting NEW and UNWRAPPED toys to be donated to Doernbecher and Randall Children’s Hospital’s pediatric intensive care units. The drive runs until the 21st. See Katy’s HotSchedules message for more details.

BLOCK 15 ACCOLADES

Our beer was recently given some love by both the Oregonian (in their Civil War Battle of the Breweries article) and famed beer writer Jeff Alworth (in his Best of 2018 article). Check out both writeups to see how well our beer is being received out in the wild! (They’re short reads, so you’ll only have to invest a few minutes total.)

THE CORVALLIS HALF MARATHON & 5K

The Corvallis Half Marathon & 5K is quickly approaching! The 5k is Saturday April 14th and the Half Marathon is Sunday April 15th. Block 15 encourages you to participate! In support of this, we will be covering the registration cost of any Caves or Block 15 employee who participates.

You must request, and be approved for, that time off of work by February 28th.

If you would like to register for one of these runs, please check in with your scheduling manager first. Sarah and Laura will be giving Kristen A. a list of all staff members who are approved for that time off. She will then message all approved staff with a code that will allow you to register for free!

Please note this 'offer' is only good for those of you who participate. If you register, but don't participate, you will owe Block 15 the registration fee, so make sure to only sign up if you are committed to running!

For event specific information, please visit the Corvallis Half Marathon website. Let Kristen know if you have any questions.
