Team Challenge Company had excitedly looked forward to delivering a night of evening entertainment to help the entire team at The OGTC in Aberdeen celebrate another fantastic year, and to enjoy a festive Christmas Party to remember!

With Innovation and Technology at the very heart of all that The OGTC do, it was important that we offered a high-tech, creative, highly innovative and of course, entertaining product for their evening, and Quickfire, one of newest products from our exclusive Catalyst Global Team Building Product portfolio, certainly fit the bill! Teams would gather around giant interactive screens set up in the spectacular HUB Centre of The OGTC offices to play through hundreds of different interactive challenges and tasks, whilst taking photos and videos of everything they did in a bit to win big points and take home the much-coveted Team Challenge Company Winner’s Trophy.

As guests arrived and began to find their team mates, there was certainly a party atmosphere in the air, and we were quickly up and running with a pre-game briefing, which brought plenty of cheers and laughter as the guests realised what they were about to take on! And in no time at all we were off, teams racing to their HUDDLE interactive screens to select their opening tasks and get some points on the board early! The variety of challenges was enormous...from problem solving riddles through to planking on sofa’s, and from juggling and play spinning through to adopting ballet poses and showing off dance moves, this Quickfire team building event really had it all!

A half-way break for wonderful Christmas Buffet food didn’t slow the action down, as our teams flew head-first into our animal racing challenge to kick-start the second half of the evening. More action ensued as teams built domino rally’s as creatively as possible, shot for gold at our hole in one challenge, tried their hand at the Diablo, and even took part in a mass Floss Dance-Off as each team desperately bid to earn more points than the others and take home the victory!

We had one more group challenge for the entire team to take on before the final results were to be revealed - our mighty Bridge Build. Could the teams span the gap with only the limited resources provided, and drive our famous RC car across for the bonus points...? It would seem that most could not, however both Team One-ers and The Fantastic Five managed to strike gold and earn the big points...but would it a difference to the final leaderboard...? Before we found out, we had the pleasure of reviewing all the photos and videos that each team had taken during the evening, which brought the house down with laughter. There was some incredible ‘Owling’ on show, Moonwalking like MJ was actually in the room, some shocking jokes told, and some horrendous attempts at trying to get the entire team to pull on and take off a single T- shirt in less that 30 seconds!

And so, the time had come for the all important scores! But before we could get to the top of the pile, we had to of course present our Wooden Spoon, which went to Team Two Sexy For Our Shirts, scoring a pretty respectable 1295 points! 4th spot went to Team FourPlay, whilst the Fantastic Five snuck into 3rd place. That left the top two, with second position going to the Three Blind Mice! And so, with a wonderful final score of 1645 points, The OGTC Christmas Party Quickfire Champions were crowned...the unstoppable Team One-ers!

A fantastic evening of entertainment and team building had been enjoyed by all, and a massive thanks must go to Jenny and the entire organising committee for pulling together such a brilliant evening. A big shout out to the entire team at The OGTC, all oh whom were a pleasure to work with (and highly competitive, which we love!), and we hope that your Quickfire Challenge was the perfect end to a wonderful year. Look forward to seeing you all again soon for the re-match!

What a great, fun, and seriously competitive evening at OGTC offices - everyone played full out and it was a real pleasure to work with all your teams- sorry the puzzles were truly fiendish - only the best could crack them - were you in the mix ?. Hope to work with you all again soon - you bring the competitors and we can bring the noise ! Stephen
