Taking Aim at Hunger

Alpha TestingAlpha’s President, Brian Powell and Chairman, Jim Hillhouse “took aim at hunger” on April 27 at the Christian Community Action (CCA) Sporting Clay Shoot. Alberto Flores and Jacob Wadlington also joined the group as volunteers for the day. Alpha was a sponsor for the event which included 13 stations, a raffle, and BBQ for fuel. The clay shoot raised funds to benefit CCA’s mission to alleviate suffering, bring hope, and change lives. CCA has served the DFW area for over 43 years, providing food and crisis management and relief services.

Did They Escape?

Alpha Testing, Inc.

Alpha Testing’s Business Development team took “team bonding” to a new level at Red Door Escape Room during a thee day training last week. What’s an escape room you say? Picture 8 people in a dimly lit room with puzzles and hidden clues. Doesn’t seem that bad, right? Oh yeah, and lock all the doors from the outside. The goal? Find the clues, solve them, and escape in 60 minutes. While the crew did not beat the 11% odds of escape, they did have a blast trying!

Tamale Thanksgiving

Alpha Testing, Inc.Everyone does turkey, but Alpha’s San Antonio office decided to veer from tradition at their Thanksgiving Tamale lunch last week. The team was joined by their Chaplain, Chuck and reasons to be thankful were shared around the horn. A new tradition perhaps?

30 Attendees. 4 Offices. One Alpha.

Staff from each of our four offices came together under one roof for a two day conference at the Gaylord Texan. On Friday morning there were many familiar voices, but new faces. By Saturday afternoon, we’d like to think that the team parted with all familiar faces. Here are some highlights from the conference and Texas Rangers game!

March Training Madness

Alpha’s business development and marketing team hit the books (and pins) in March during a three day training event. For the first time this year, our BD/MKTG team was under one roof – we even got some of the engineering staff involved the first day! But don’t worry, it wasn’t all hard work and no play.

Tuesday lunch was held at the Omni with a visit from Brian Powell and Wednesday evening the bowling began at Pin Stack. Strikes, gutter balls, turkeys, a few granny shots, and great company were all part of the team bonding event. Who had the wicked spin? We’ll never tell.

Alpha Warriors!

Alpha Warriors Tour BusEvery year, Alpha hosts a Christmas party for staff and family to celebrate not only the holiday at hand, but also the successes of the year. Offices unite, Founder’s awards are bestowed, and food is consumed. However, last year’s 2014 Christmas Party took a slight detour from the usual agenda as the Alpha Warriors took the stage. Our very own Alpha Village People – Homebuilder Hillhouse, Policeman Powell, Cowboy Combs, Warrior Wilt, Officer Janish, and Sailor Stettner danced their way through the “YMCA”. We’ll let the quotes identify themselves…

“The strangest part was walking through the hotel in costume.”
“I always wanted to be a cop.”
“Not sure about those leather pants.”
“The headdress and all those feathers was the first hair on top of my head in years.”

What will happen at the next Alpha Christmas Party? The bar has been set and the challenge awaits – what Alpha group will step up in 2015?Alpha Testing, Inc. Logo

Alpha Tacos

Friday was a success across the state for bring smiles, some good laughs with co-workers, and of course full bellies! Here are few candid moments from Friday’s celebration:
