It may have been blowing a gale outside The Fairmont St Andrews, but the team from the British Texel Sheep Society nearly blew the roof off of The Atrium suite cheering on their horses in our Team Challenge Company Race Night.

After feasting on a buffet fit for a king, Gil and the teams cooked up some of their own team names with some cheeky names chucked in there, from The Clever Clogs to The Workers.

After handing out our fun money we started with the ever popular icebreaker round Hit or Miss, testing the music knowledge of everyone in the room. Then the serious competition started with the first rounds of racing going well; there were definitely some big winners and high spenders! Everyone was so excitable that we had to take a break from the racing and do a Movie Quotes round for bonus fun money. 

After the fun of the Movie Quotes, we followed on with the fast paced racing heading towards our Grand Finale - the Ladies Races. The Ladies handpicked their steeds from the crowd and were to parade their strong studs around the room. The final race was intense and close, with some huge winnings being handed out from the bookmaker.

As always there has to be a winner and they were the aptly named The Champs, taking home a grand total of £1,200 of fun money! Unfortunately there were 6 tables that blew the lot on the last race ending with nothing.

The following day gave us the opportunity to once again deliver some fantastic entertainment for the Texel Team, this time in the shape of a fun-filled and uber-competitive Highland Games event on the grounds of Fairmont St Andrews. The morning started as the previous night had closed – in high spirits and with plenty of laughter – as we separated the teams and got ready to kick off the morning of entertainment.

Our teams would do battle across a range of Highland Games activities, including Toss the Caber, Welly Throwing, Stone Lift and our ever popular Haggis Hurling! There were a huge amount of highlights from the day, and plenty of competitive banter across the teams as each bid to take home the much-coveted Team Challenge Company Winner’s Trophy.

Throughout all our Highland Games events, there was also an opportunity for the guests to do some stock judging – something which went down as a big hit with the guests. Even our Event Managers, Jonathan and Dom, had a go – but didn’t really know one sheep from the other to be honest…! The Highland Games banter continued with our grand finale on the Hey You Jimmy contest which saw the teams take on our challenging assault course in a bid to secure maximum points. This frantic finale was fast-paced and furiously competitive as all teams proved just how much they wanted to win!

In the end there could be only one winner and the Texel Highland Games Champions were Team 3. The deserving winners claimed the coveted Team Challenge Company Winner’s Trophy while the other teams gathered for team photographs. Both the Race Night evening and Highland Games were fun and fast paced so many thanks to Gil for organising the events. We very much hope to see you all again soon for the rematches.
