EQ’s 2012 Company Picnic Under a Sailcloth Tent

Sailcloth Tent
At our annual employee appreciation picnic, the kids played egg-toss, ran a three-legged race and jumped up to stand on the winners’ platform for photo ops.  Gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded to all of the winners.  The grown up kids played horseshoes in our annual tournament.  Adults and kids alike played poker, blackjack and bet the house on roulette under our gorgeous sailcloth tent.

This greatly anticipated annual event hosted by our company founder, Ed Knight and his wife Janet, is always the buzz around EventQuip for the entire summer. Everyone looks forward to getting together with their friends, co-workers and families for fabulous food, icy refreshments, fun and games. This year, Ed surprised us with a “Casino Night” courtesy of Eric Walker at Tonz of Fun; complete with 5 casino table games, custom “EventQuip” poker chips and a live performance by musician Lorenzo Branca. Industry icons Gene Blum and Richard Kisco acted as our casino dealers and kept the dice hot and the cards moving fast.  Needless to say, the craps table was packed throughout the night!

The always-exceptional Max Hansen catered a delicious buffet of tenderloin steaks, barbequed chicken, sliders, salads and sweet corn on the cob. The kids splashed in the pool, raced around the yard and chowed down at the scrumptious ice cream bar with candy toppings. Adults enjoyed custom cigars hand-rolled on-site under a separate tent.

But the sparkling centerpiece of the event was the beautiful sailcloth tent that was highlighted with custom gobos that projected images of cards, dice and our “EQ” logo. Round tables covered with black and white checkerboard tablecloths, stalks of bamboo from the garden and lush red roses completed the look.

At the end of the evening, each guest departed with a cool EventQuip beach towel, which asked the question “Got Tent?”…Yes,we “Got Tent”, and a whole lot of fun!

One of our sailcloth weddings made the cover of the summer issue of InTents Magazine!

For this wedding at the historic Andalusia on the Delaware in Philadelphia, we installed a 51 x 91 foot Aztec Tidewater tent with stained, laminated hardwood side poles and center poles. The plank floor was custom built by our craftsmen using rough planks in random widths and colors.  Always a gorgeous estate to tent, we were thrilled to partner with Evantine Design on the overall décor concept for the event.
