Corporate America Throws Blindfolded!

Throwing contest?

Despite some initial confusion, on their last day some of the seniors stepped up and took on the challenge of throwing on the wheel while blindfolded. When they finally looked at what they'd done, there was triumph, heartbreak, laughter, clean-up, and maybe a few cookies - and a good job done by all.
