We welcomed Standard Life Investments to Norton House Hotel where it was time to kick off an exciting session of the infamous Crystal Challenge. The coveted Team Challenge trophy was up for grabs.

The day was off to an exciting start with a bonus crystal up for grabs. The teams were given 30 seconds to come up with the best team name with an amazing presentation to go along with it. The competition was fierce between the teams but 'It Takes Two to Tango' received the first bonus crystal of the day, with their wonderful name and dancing skills.

We went straight into the activities and the brain work really started. The teams had a variety of team and individual challenges to complete. The Towers of Hanoii confused many at first but most teams managed to complete the challenge. The same cannot be said about the Nail It challenge. Almost every team failed to gain a bonus crystal. Teams performed better on the Chicken, Fox and Grain challenge where every team was awarded a crystal. The teams were then put under pressure on Capture the Flag where they had to beat a tricky 15 seconds.

Ring the Bell was completed by some teams, whilst others struggled to pick up the bell. Needless to say many had better luck on the Bat the Rat. Interlocker was another challenge that many teams succeeded at whilst others ran out of time. The Buzz Me challenge was watched as many contorted themselves in a bid to win a bonus crystal. The Giant Jigsaw and Labyrinth frustrated many with no teams completing both challenges. A few teams succeeded with the Hole in One. It was then time for the Crystal Challenge Finale. Tension was high as crystals were counted. 'It Takes Two to Tango' were in the lead with 27 seconds in the Dome.

All five teams were given time in the Dome to try and grab as much cash as they could. Coming in at 5th place with only £80 were 'Lock, Stock and One Smoking Salmon'. In fourth place was 'Enfoursters' with £160, followed by 'Hawaii Five-o' with £640. Narrowly missing out in first place was 'It Takes Two to Tango' with £800. Congratulations to the winners 'Three is the Magic Number' with an amazing £960 collected by Barry. The fun didn't end here; the teams then went on to enjoy an evening of Bucking Bronco fun and Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting. Sadly it was over all too soon and it was time to say goodbye to Standard Life Investments after another fun filled day.
