The weather should have been a fine Scottish summer’s day, but the rain came out to play instead, so we chose to take this great group inside for an afternoon of entertainment, challenge and competition. It was a pleasure to welcome SITE members on their Perthshire Familiarisation trip in conjunction with the wonderful Dunkeld House Hotel. After a sumptuous lunch in their delightful function suite hosted by General Manager John and his excellent team, we were headed to the marquee for the challenges that lay ahead.
The weather was unfortunately not playing ball and delivered a steady persistent downpour, however Dunkeld House pulled out all the stops and offered us the use of their beautiful onsite Marquee– just perfect for this sample teambuilding event taking this great group inside for their challenges. The group were split into 3 teams to go head to head against each other at the ever so challenging Beat the Box and the mentally testing team building challenge Red Alert then our newest high tech challenge namely Infinite Loop. The teams were named:
As we moved between the three sample activities it was clear from the whoops and hollers who was leading and who was only there for the delicious food! It was a challenge too far for some of the teams on the Red Alert – focus and attention to detail were the keys to cracking the codes and saving the planet – but who would stay the course and who would fall at the first hurdle?
Beat the Box offered a sample of this escape room theme ideal for conferences with a twist as the team wrecked their collective brains in a joint effort to crack the puzzles and move further in to reach ever more complicated boxes one by one - but who was the smartest team in the room ?...Marquee ?
Infinite Loop showed off our latest exclusive in the UK high teach event as the teams had to work both in the virtual world and the real world with communication, planning and attention to detail helping them travel thru a series of unique challenges designed to bring out the very best in communication, learning and planning techniques.
The teams gathered for the presentation of the Team Challenge Trophy and wooden spoon. In third place sadly came Liz’s Rubbish who by their own admission let victory slip from their grasp. In second place was a valiant Sandrine’s Spartans and taking the top spot with a truly awesome performance was Mafalda’s Minions with a clean sweep on every challenge – excellent performance here
As we said goodbye to the group we hope you all enjoyed your brief trip to and experience at Dunkeld House Hotel and we look forward to seeing you at your next event.
