Team Kiewit has participated all four years DG  has been part of the Corporate Challenge. We play in the C division and have three golds and one silver.

We will probably have a team this year as well.

Cerner has competed for all 4 years now in the A Division.  We have a less than stellar record (2 silvers and a gold). 

I would say the vast majority of us don't play in CC simply because their company isn't involved.  It's a lot of money for a company to join, and not all feel it's the best use of their funds.

I think they wait until all of the companies have signed up before they break them down in to classes....I think they try to even out the number in each class.  If your company was in C Division last year, that's likely where they'll be again, although it's possible they'll move to either B or D depending on whether your company more or fewer employees than they did last year, in relation to the other companies in the challenge.
Missouri....our state animal is sterile, our state rock is lead, and we elected a dead guy to the U.S. Senate.  Of course, he was the best candidate.

Ahhh, well maybe division B then. We have been hiring like crazy.

Chris, this is really sad.  When the entry runs $1300-4000, depending on the size of your company.  The A divisions companies waste $4000 in the blink of an eye.  Just short sided management that does not understand the team building and morale.

Do I sound bitter, I am :) Sprint/UT&T was one of the inaugural companies competing and now through numerous spin-offs and mergers the current local-telephone company (which will remain nameless) has refused to participate.

I worked for Citigroup for a short time, and they have a 2800-employee call center near the airport, as well as CitiMortgage locations throughout the metro.  They think nothing about giving out $15 AMC gift cards a couple times a year for all 2800 employees, but something like this that would actually be a good team building experience they won't drop a dime on. It also promotes physical fitness, which is supposedly a Citi virtue. Go figure.

Saint Luke's has bowed out this year because the gentleman that ran it for them retired.  Instead of seeing if someone else (or group of people) would be willing to run it, we just threw in the towel.

Employees were/are not happy.

Oh well, looks like I can help out this year instead of playing!

i don't think it's about the money for all companies. if i had to listen to people beeotch every year about how they didn't get on the softball team or didn't get a fair shake in their try out, i might see it as a morale detractor.
putt, putt, give.
