After a long day working the team from Baker Hughes arrived at the wonderful Greentrees Restaurant for a night of fun filled Team Building Aberdeen Event in the form of our Race Night Event. The Team Challenge Company team were hyped and raring to go as everyone arrived and took their seats, the first challenge facing the teams was to come up with a team name. We had the Stable Lads, All or Nothing, The Stallions, Horse 9 and Balgownie Ponies (a rather rowdy bunch). The night kicked off with bets coming thick and fast for the first race, unfortunately for Sandy his team were picking all the donkey’s. The Stable Lads bet big and it seemed to be working well for them meanwhile Balgownie Ponies spread their bets to try and stay on top.

After the first two races and a delicious 3 course dinner from the Greentrees it was time to get serious with our Guess Who Quiz round. Horse 9 tried to stay in the race but only won 30 points in this bonus round better luck next time Helen but at least you did better than The Stallions who only picked up 20 points and were not really sure who they were!! Coming out on top with a massive 80 points were the Balgownie Ponies. Races 3 and 4 some big bets but for All or Nothing every horse they chose fell at the jumps, winning 40 Bonus points for the loudest cheers were The Stallions, slow starters but they were unstoppable at the end. It was then time for the final race, the atmosphere was electric with everyone trying to work out the best strategy for this finale Race, The Stable Boys went all in betting £160 on number 4. Others were more reserved ensuring they had at least a few pennies in the pot at the end, it was a tense race and finished with All or Nothing cashing in and winning the jackpot £825.

Sadly The Stable Boys and Stallions ended up with zero, zilch, nada. In 3rd Place with £10 the rowdy crowd Balgownie Ponies, 2nd Place the only horse not in the race Horse 9 with £500 and of course taking home the Team Challenge Company Trophy it was All or Nothing. A fantastic night and a great crowd, thank you to Stephen and his Team at the Greentrees and of course Helen from Baker Hughes for organising the evening, it was a pleasure working with you and your team and we look forward to working with you again soon.

What an awesome night, everyone got into the swing of things and was betting big towards the end, a few more strategic than others!! Great to work with you all and hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did!!



An absolute pleasure to work with the fantastic Baker Hughes team for this fun-filled night of entertainment, where we definitely proved that the louder you cheer, the faster your horse runs! My particular highlight was Race 4, where All or Nothing lost all 3 horses they had bet on by the second fence, haha! However, they came back with a vengeance and stuck gold in the last race to take home the Winner's Trophy...Legends! A big shout out to Helen for all her hard work in organising such a great event - we very much look forward to working with the Baker Hughes team again in the future...bring on the re-match!
