MTL get their steps in

This Wednesday, close to 50 people in the Montreal team started the Framestore Stairs Challenge. The idea is to avoid taking the elevator as much as possible and use the stairs instead. The challenge will be taking place the entire Summer season. In only a day, the group of athletes managed to climb together the equivalent of the Grand Canyon. See you all in the staircase! 

Some of the team also stopped by the ISART gala to see the graduation projects of the 2023 class.

Framesquad stays cheerful

Another really tight and well fought game by Framesquad this week, unfortunately conceding 37-32. Special shout out to the supporters Justine, Barthelemy, Jerome and Yanis whose cheerleading fired up the team’s spirit to fight until the end!  

Flamestorming ahead

Flamestorm scored their second win of the season, this time against Wieden+Kenedy. The score was tight throughout, but Flamestorm managed to stay on top with their superior batting skills, and shut down the opposition to deliver a hard-earnt win with a final score of 22-19. Special shout out to Connor Jarvis for his amazing line drive catch at shortstop, and Dan Glass for his multiple home run hits.
