Saturday saw us in rural Aberdeenshire for a corporate family fun day with WM Donald. Around 120 employees and their families enjoyed the beautiful weather as their annual barbecue luckily often brings. There was a whole host of fantastic activities on offer for the entirety of the afternoon. The festivities kicked into life around 1pm as the kids in particular swarmed the inflatable fun which dominated one half of the field. The Bungee Run Basketball proved as popular as ever in the early part of the day. We enjoyed not one but two Millie's going head to head to see who would take home the bragging rights. After many baskets the score was tied at 3-3 in a best of 7 contest. The last challenge was epic, both storming forward towards the hoops at the end of the bungee lanes. It was 'big' Millie who held her nerve and slam dunked her penultimate attempt. What a fun and exciting way to kick off the day.

Little jack enjoyed the amount of footballs which were on offer as he was always running around the 7 a side goal posts and the Human Table Football. Sometimes showing the bigger kids that size isn't everything as he weaved his way in and out scoring countless amounts of ‘Messi esque’ goals. Definitely one to watch for the future. Our Giant Slide proved to be a magnet for children and adults alike as there was never a moment where it wasn't being utilised. Our Bouncy Castle and Ball Pool was inundated with kids all day as ran towards BBQ time!

Shortly after the BBQ it was time to officially welcome the new managing director of WM Donald, David Morris and to wish him a happy birthday. The cake which was kindly made and donated by Gareth was of a blue hard hat that sat proudly displaying a sharp WM logo. Around 30 children provided a large circle and fitting back drop for the happy birthday song which flattered David. A beautiful rendition by the WM Donald future children's choir. Right on queue the ice cream van arrived with music playing loudly instantly caught the imagination of the kids. Ice creams in hand the majority of people headed for the long awaited archery competition. Families went head to head as they dreamed of walking away with Team Challenge Company Winner’s Trophy. Tension filled the air as the straight knockout competition kicked into life. Mike failed to hit the board as nerves got the better of him. The full Aberdeen stripped was left dad hanging his head in shame. Ross restored some pride for the adults as he marched into the semi finals with some deadly shooting. Gary also booking his place after a commanding performance.

Natasha and mum were also through to the eagerly anticipated balloon round as competitors came and went. Ross surprisingly bowed out at the semi final stage as possibly his worst arrow of the day only struck the white section of the scoreboard. The big underdog, 14 year old Natasha hit bulls-eye to take her to the grand final against experienced Gary. An upset on the cards perhaps? The dream turned into a reality as Gary crumbled in the face of glory missing the balloons wildly. Natasha composed yet humble struck the final blow, obliterating the orange balloon in the centre of the board. What a fantastic ending to a fiercely caught contest. Well done Natasha, beating every adult taking part. As the day drew to a close Angus enjoyed the sumo suits for the last time. The Human Table Football also enjoyed a full 6 a side match between adults and kids. After numerous hand balls, fouls the day ended in a tremendous and entertaining way. A brilliant day with some lovely people from WM Donald!
