The outcome was in doubt until the last possible second, but when the dust settled and the results were tabulated, the men’s team led by North American Equipment Upfitters President Michael Dunican narrowly edged out the women’s squad led by Print Savvy Owner Lisa Landry at the 2nd Annual New Hampshire Business Bowl held last Friday evening at The Acting Loft Field at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester.
Held at halftime of the Manchester Wolves/Albany Firebirds game, the Business Bowl pitted two teams of six players in a series of interactive contests including paper plane flying, the printer cartridge dash and the “Fling a Football” challenge. Both squads brought their respective cheering sessions as well as a healthy amount of trash talking and gamesmanship.
Prior to the Business Bowl, both teams were treated to an onfield pep talk by Wolves Coach Danton Barto and a pregame reception at Piccola Italia Ristorante. At the reception, participants learned about free State services available to assist their businesses and had the opportunity to hear from event sponsors NH Business Review, WGAM, Cartridge World and the Manchester Wolves.
Thanks to all who participated and special thanks to Wolves General Manager Stephanie Bike for her enthusiasm and dedication to making this event the best yet. The women have already issued a challenge for a rematch next year – Mike Dunican is reportedly mulling over the offer as he prepares his “threepeat” strategy.
