They used to have cash prizes at bingo...now bingo is gambling.

No one was hurt, as far as I know, though K did show up a couple of days later with a broken foot. The broken foot came two days later at a seperate event.
He may have pulled the whole thing off, too, were it not for a yearly visit by the US Office of the Inspector General. No confirmation on titles, but it was K's supervisor (not senior) and NSF reps.
K, apparently believing no one would need to enter the garage [no one calls it the garage] supply warehouse on Sunday morning, did not completely clean up after the jello(TM)-wrestling event on Saturday night (Thou shall not operate heavy machinery after imbibing).
His supervisor, who was accompanying the OIG inspector, entered the building, saw half-empty beer bottles and cans everywhere amongst the jello(TM) flingings. He was not pleased. I did not hear any mentions of beer bottles or cans being left in the building at any time this event was mentioned by the aforementioned Supervisor although he did mention the mattresses. He was not happy, but that should not be made into something more than it was. He knew that he would have to write-up K and that he would probably have to ding his bonus. Mind you, not because he was pissed, but because he knew that his bosses would require that. He was certainly not upset enough to go to HR over it or fire K.[/font][/color]
In a wider view, many people in the program feel that a lot of new upper managers are arrogant and unappreciative of their efforts and their often long commitments to the USAP. At the all hands meeting, DD referred repeatedly to the "installation." This shows how far removed he is from the people he is managing. We call it "the community."
...station management called an urgent all-hands meeting and, as I understand it, wagged the corporate finger at everyone for our collective moral failure...
Anyone got video of this meeting?
Oh yeah, there's at least one full length video. There is talk of doing some creative editing and making a movie on what not to do if you are in management. Might be coming soon to a youtube near you...
