A brave group of Socketeers made a valiant late-winter dip into Bass Pro Lake this weekend. Unfortunately, we can report that despite the unusually warm weather we had on Saturday, the water in Bass Pro Lake was still pretty cold!

The good news is that this swim was for a great cause, as our group braved the waters for Special Olympics Missouri.


Float Your Boat is a community-focused event that allows teams to build boats solely out of cardboard, decorate them uniquely, and then race them across the lake in hopes that they don't sink before they cross the finish line. Unfortunately, we can report that despite the unusually warm weather we had on Saturday, the water in Bass Pro Lake was still pretty cold!

Still, we were happy to participate in the Float your Boat event in support of the Food Bank of Central and Northern Missouri. While we didn't come away with a trophy once again, we had a great time!


Congratulations to Joshua Clark, Socket’s You-Make-The-Difference winner for March!


Joshua had been interested in tech from a young age, so when he heard about a local tech company headquartered in Columbia, he thought it’d be a good place to get his foot in the door. The rest, as they say, is history; Joshua now helps program custom phone systems for our business customers, and provides post-installation support.
