Question:  What does the IDS staff do when not battling diabetes? 

Answer:  We throw axes! 

This year, for our post-holiday team event, we headed to “Bury the Hatchett,” an axe-throwing facility near the famous King of Prussia mall.  This was the first time any of us had ever thrown an axe (in a legal sense, anyway).  After the requisite safety training, we all practiced our techniques and then participated in a tournament.  Happy to say, no limbs were severed and a good time was had by all.
