LaRC CFC Activities

10/14 – Cake Cutting and Jail the Manager’s
Come to NASA Langley’s new cafeteria from 11:00 – 1:00 to celebrate the start of the new campaign with cake. Additionally, to ensure the cake tastes especially sweet we’ll also be holding the CFC Jail the Manager’s event.  Yes, that’s right, for a small donation you are allowed to Jail your Manager! For $1 per minute, your Manager will go to jail. There will be a warrant issued for their arrest and they will be picked up and booked. Once they are behind bars, the Manager can bail out for $1 per minute.  Click here for flyer and details to start the booking process.

It promises to be a ‘captive’-ating event and we hope you are able to stop by the café to see all the jailbirds.

A judge and sheriff will be there to keep them straight!

Chili Cook-Off: All organizations big or small are invited to participate in the 2015 CFC Chili Cook-Off on November 3rd, 11:00am-1:00pm, in the H.J.E. Reid Conference Center.

Teams from across the center will provide world-class chili and help generate CFC donations as employees vote with their contributions. There will also be a panel of “Expert” judges to determine a judges’ award winner.
