Previous Backblaze Holiday Parties

On to the pictures!  Backblaze employees and families boarding the bus at the San Mateo headquarters to go up to San Francisco where the party is at.  This is the second time we have a two-bus size company.


We held the holiday party at Mission Bowling Club in San Francisco.  It is located at: 3176 17th St, San Francisco, CA 94110


Here are Backblaze employees all having fun, eating, drinking, and bowling.

A picture with Judith Pimentel, Tim Nufire, and Cameron Urnes. 


Lisa Pusin talking with Allen Ingling.  Kerry McClendon checks his phone in the background.


The blurry picture below is Keith Felt.  The low light makes action photography challenging.


We are at Mission Bowling Club, and they don't want you to forget that.


Backblaze employees having a good time.

Katherine Chung, Stuart Cheshire (being silly to mess with the photograph), and Eli Echt-Wilson.


The picture below is a train wreck of obscured faces and mis-matched colors, but it does have Dan Mote and Zach Sellen in it, and they are very important to Backblaze.


Annalisa Penhollow mugging for the camera, Brad Fiore, Tony Sales (in glasses), Casey Jones (facing away from camera), and Zach Sellen checking his phone.


Jessica "JC" Castaneda on the right, Kerry McClendon looking dapper in his suit.  Christopher Grace covering his mouth laughing.


A bunch of Backblaze people relaxing and talking.


At 10pm, Gleb Budman (CEO of Backblaze) said some words about how the year went.  In the picture below, Gleb is standing at the balcony.


Another picture of Gleb talking.



And we all went home!  That's it!
