It was a return to the stunning Ballater setting of the Hilton Craigendarroch Resort for our team this Hogmanay for an Evening of Fun Casino Entertianment followed by a ceilidh and disco to welcome 2014 in style! Our professional croupiers were run off their feet trying to keep up with demand on both the Roulette and the Blackjack tables while our Banker was gleefully giving out loans to everyone around! After a few tutorials and practice sessions it was soon the kids' turn to shine as they quickly proved the mantra bet big to win big, especially little Harry!

When it came to the prize-giving it was William Longworth and Blair Campbell who triumphed for the under 16s taking home their Hilton Teddy while Fiona Campbell earned herself a luxury Espa voucher and Brenda McDonald went home with Dinner and Champagne for two. Top of the tree was Bruce Robertson with a whopping £828 profit on the night meaning he was the deserving winner of a bottle of Lochnigar Whiskey, and of course, the Team Challenge Company Winners' Trophy!

As the hours ticked by we headed into the Disco in full swing with a few truly Scottish ceilidh dances to kick us off into the spirit of celebrations. With lots of requests and a good mix of disco classics the dancefloor was filled from start to finish. As midnight drew near we gathered to wish all a Happy New Year with a rendition of Auld Lang Syne followed by a magnificent display from the Ballater and District Pipe Band. As we saw in the first hours of 2014 there were smiles aplenty and grateful thanks to Alea, Paul and the rest of the Hilton team for making the night so magical. From all at Team Challenge Company we wish you all the best for 2014.

What a brilliant night of Scottish themed madness we had at the stunning Hilton Resort. It was great to share such a magical time of year with all the families staying in Ballater for the bells. We very much look forward to seeing some of the now familiar faces again next year. Sarah-Jane

Fantastic evening to bring in the bells. Never have I seen a roulette table so packed with eager hopefuls! Then to top it off, our Ceilidh & disco brought the party to life. A great night spent in great company. Happy New Year!
