After 2 years of loyal service to Volano we recently had to part with a valued member of our team. Losing a team member is never easy, and I would like to share a few thoughts regarding his stay with us.
Volano has high expectations for all its team members, and his case was no different. We often demanded more from him than we should have, but he always came through for us. This team member was witness to numerous hours of debauchery and drinking and all the while maintained true to his cause. He was with us for the crowning of many great champions and the heckling of those who fell short. He was one of us, a friend who will be sincerely missed. So from all of us here at Volano, we would like to thank Ted (our company dart board) for all his faithful years of service. While he will likely be replaced, his memory will live on.
