Corporate Fun Days with Dril Quip

What a beautiful day it was at Mercure Ardoe House Hotel, as the guests arrived for the annual Corporate Fun Days for Dril Quip. It was definitely not the weather that we were use to for Dril Quip's BBQ as the sun shined all day. We had the lovely Mickey and Minnie Mouse welcoming the excited guests along with Denver the Dog to the beautiful Ballroom and Stables Grounds. The theme of today was Disney, and it was clear to see the effort that so many had put into this. We had Elsa's and Anna's from Frozen as well as some Princesses and even Buzz Lightning Turned up.

The Barbeque was served outside the Ballroom, allowing all the guests to see the Disney themed room and take a moment away from the heat and sunshine. The food smelled superb and had a variety of options including burgers, ribs and chicken with mini tubs of ice-cream to cool everyone down. The children and adults had extra sugary treats including candy floss and popcorn before heading back down to the activities. It was almost competition time and the last practice shots were fired on Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting and Archery. Snow White pulled through in the Archery competition and took home the pride and a special present, Ross what happened to you even Elaine was better, haha. On the Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting it was a tough competition with many battling it out, but Ross came through in the end winning the competition.

The real fun of the day started with the Races and Competitions, we had several heats in flat races and egg & spoon races for the children. The comedy was the ladies space hopper dash and mens sack race relays, providing a couple of tumbles and some victory laps. The fancy dress parade allowed the children to show off their costumes and Mickey & Minnie gave out special prizes to the winners. It was that time to enjoy the activities before the day was out, Pedal Buggies, Denver's Den and Lazershot quickly filled up with everyone so they could have fun before they left. Thank you so much to Elaine for organising another great afternoon, what a day you picked... hopefully this will happen next year again. We hope you all had a great afternoon, thanks to Disney for the wonderful theming and all of the team at Ardoe House Hotel.

Thank you Elaine for your very kind feed back. We are all so delighted that everyone had such a lovely day!



It is always a pleasure to work with Elaine, Dril Quip and their guests for their Summer Fun Day, and this year was no different - made all the better because of the sunshine! Some of the fancy dresses on the day were really amazing, as many of the children (and some of the adults!) got into the full Disney spirit of the afternoon - well done! A big congrats to Elaine for organising another wonderful Summer BBQ, very much look forward to seeing you all again next year!
