The stunning grounds of Macdonald Linden Hall was the setting for our first Country Pursuits for AA. The sun was out, with barely a cloud in the sky for what was set to be a fantastic day all round. To start the teams were selected and team names decided on. Competing for the Team Challenge Gold Trophy were; Dave’s Datchers, Brian's Babes, Stu's Warriors and The Underdogs. The first activities of the day were Rollerball and Archery. Stu's Warriors and The Underdogs were first to take on Rollerball, trying to build a free standing structure to keep their golf ball moving for as along as possible. Both teams started off well but The Underdogs channel unfortunately failed them when it counted. Over on the Archery there was lots of cheering for Brian's Babes and Dave’s Datchers, as they set the bar high for their competitors. When the teams swapped over, the teams continued to excel. Brian's Babes were under the guidance of Lisa, while Dave’s Datchers were encouraged to ignore Edward’s scepticism because "he's Irish".

Next up for the teams were Mini Highland Games and Chip Shop Golf. The teams started their Highland games by throwing Welly’s and had plenty to say about the point scoring although, having good fun. While tossing the caber we saw one of the smallest teammates Ruth, attempt to throw our largest caber sadly without success. However, she scored a great 9 when using a smaller one. The Chip Shop Golf also had things flying everywhere. While Phil and Dave took control of The Underdogs, coaching the girls, Lisa could only score if she used her lucky pink golf ball and Emma managed to hit everything but the nets causing great hilarity amongst both teams.

The Laser Clay Shooting saw the 4 teams come directly head to head. The success of the first round was taken by Stu's Warriors who managed the most hits. The second round however was about who could not only hit the clay, which was proving challenging for some, but who could hit it first and The Underdogs managed to snatch the victory for the activity. Finally, the Catapult, this got the teams building again. The aim was to throw their golf ball as far as possible. Dave’s Datchers design looked promising with its crossed bungee technique while Stu's Warriors made the golf ball looked like it was going to be going to space, not across the field! On attempt, one most of the likely teams sadly flopped and even with a second attempt Dave’s Datchers, Stu's Warriors and The Underdogs didn't even get their ball across the line but with help from Lisa’s lucky pink ball, Brains' Babes took the points.

The final scores saw Dave’s Datchers taking home the wooden spoon with a respectable 4000 points. Stu's Warriors took third place with 4200 points while Brian's Babes closely missed out coming in second with 4300 points. The day’s winners defied their team name with 4400 points and The Underdogs took home the Trophy as well as a certificate each. We hope you enjoyed your day as much as we did and look forward to seeing you all again!
