Team Challenge Company were delighted to support Crerar Thainstone House Hotel in a night of Evening Entertainment to celebrate the launch of their new BBQ Menu’s for Summer 2014, and showcase the wonderful renovations that have taken place there in recent months, cementing Thainstone House Hotel’s place as one of the leading corporate event venues in Aberdeen. Around 60 excited guests of Thainstone House Hotel arrived into the newly decorated and wonderfully presented Ambassador Suite for a night of Hospitality and Entertainment in the shape of our ever popular Evening Entertainment Event – The Pressure Zone! A sense of nervous anticipation certainly reverberated around the room as guests took their seats following the arrival drinks reception, and prepared themselves for a night of fun and competition ahead. General Manager of Thainstone House Hotel, Robin Osman, offered a warm welcome to his guests for the evening and provided a brief insight into the wide ranging corporate events that are all possible with Team Challenge Company, both inside and outside on the magnificent grounds of Thainstone House Hotel.

With that, the Pressure Zone Entertainment kicked off in style, as teams were welcomed up for the first ‘warm-up’ challenge – Flop It! It was a tough starter for some (maybe they had one eye on the delicious BBQ Food about to be served), with only Emma from Team Dolphin finding success and scoring £100 of Fun Money for her team…but the night was only just getting started!!! The wonderful BBQ Food was then served up by head chef Jon Wood (previously of Gordon Ramsey and Jamie Oliver Restaurants), and it has to be said it really went down an absolute treat, and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The guests most definitely showed there appreciation with a rapturous round of applause for Chef and his team following the meal, before we launched back in to the remainder of our Evening Entertainment – oh what a night! Hole in One allowed for some more money to be splashed around the teams, with ‘The Team with No Name performing particularly well, whilst the ‘Liquorice’ Allsorts found themselves in more trouble than ever! We quickly moved on to Gradient, which perhaps provided on of my favourite moments from the evening, as we welcomed John to the stage to demonstrate how it was done…! Let’s just say he still needs some more practice… but thanks for giving us all a laugh John!

As the night of Evening Entertainment drew to a close, the time had come for our Grand Finale…the Tier Drop! One by one our guests stepped inside the Pressure Zone in an attempt to become a hero, and many fell by the wayside. We had high hopes for Kath from the Westhill Wanderers – but were high hopes were sadly misplaced! Steph from the Dolphins couldn’t live up to her incredible reputation, and neither Joanne and Ann-Marie from the Finzean International Rescue Team could send their ball to into the basket…but then came Morag! With one swift throw her ball struck gold and found the target, sending the crowd wild…what a legend! When all was said and done, and the final team winning’s had been counted and verified, there could be only one winner. But before we got there, we had the Wooden Spoon to give out, which went to the very aptly named 3’s a Crowd, who didn’t manage to earn a single penny all evening! One by one the teams were called up for a photograph, and then came the champions, with a wonderful total of £500, the one, the only, Finzean International Rescue!!!

A fantastic night of hospitality and entertainment had been thoroughly enjoyed by all, as guests of Crerar Thainstone House Hotel walked away of great memories of their time with us, and no doubt grand ideas of all the wonderful Team Building Event possibilities available to them at this truly great Aberdeen venue. A very big thanks you must go to General Manager Robin Osman for hosting the evening, and Lynn and Alison for their part in organising the night. It was an absolute pleasure to be part of this fantastic evening, and we at Team Challenge Company look forward to many successful corporate events at Thainstone House Hotel this summer, and beyond.

Jonathan - The Game Show Host (with the most!)

It was a pleasure to support the wonderful Crerar Thainstone House Hotel in the launch of their new Summer BBQ Menu on what proved to be a fun-filled evening of excitement and entertainment with fabulous guests from all over Aberdeen. The guests were great fun, and definitely up for the competition and challenges that came with the night of Evening Entertainment - it just seems as though very many of them all need some further practice inside the Pressure Zone - and fast!!! General Manager Robin and his team did a wonderful job in providing such fantastic hospitality, and we very much look forward to working with many of our clients at Thainstone House Hotel this summer, and delivering more memorable Corporate Events there across 2014 and beyond.



What an AWESOME night, thanks to all the Team at Thainstone the new 2014 BBQ menu was delicious!! Have to say a special shout out to Morag for being the only person to beat the Pressure Zone in Tier Drop well done, I still haven't managed it :(
