Wednesday 31st July saw a group of 10 from Subsea7 take part in a Country Pursuits Team Building day at the magnificent Mercure Ardoe House Hotel. After a morning of meetings and then some lunch the group split themselves into two teams. It was to be boys vs girls which would add to the competitive nature of the day.

The first Country Pursuits challenge of the day for each if the teams was to be Inflatable Chip Shot Golf and Quad Bike circuits. On the Inflatable Chip Shot Golf the boys got off to a good start managing to score a total of 400 points. However the surprise came that most if the points were gained when holding the club with the opposite hand. A sign of how bad they really were? In the 3rd round the competitors were blind folded and it was only Paul that managed to score any points. The girls unfortunately could not match the score set and only managed to score 275 points. The stand out player for the girls was Emma who managed to score the majority of their points.   

Over on the Country Pursuits Quad Biking challenge both teams had great fun tackling a difficult slalom course against the clock before getting a reward of driving around a per set track. The best time of the day was set by the boys. However this was only marginally quicker than the time set by Sharon. Next the teams took on the Country Pursuits Axe Throwing activity with differing levels of success. The girls managed a comfortable win with over 700 points whereas the boys lagged behind with a score of just 450. The stand out performers were Emma and Gillian for the girls as they never seemed to miss the board so watch out, and for the boys the best two were Paul and Gavin.

The penultimate Country Pursuits event was the Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting, this saw a return to winning ways for the boys. Both teams struggled in practice but after some excellent tuition the points started to rack up. In the first round the boys took an early lead much to the shooting skills of Stuart. However when the game mode changed this lead was soon to be eaten away at as the girls found some form. However this was unfortunately a little too late. The teams entered the catapult finale with still all to play for. There was once again a huge difference in the distance traveled with the girls managing a very comfortable win managing a distance that was 3-4 times greater than was managed by the boys team.

It's was now time for the scores and both teams had no idea who had won making it an anxious wait for all. Taking home the wooden spoon today was the girls with a score of 5400. However this meant that taking home the Team Challenge Company trophy with a score of 5600 were the boys. A big thanks goes to Gillian for organising such a great day, it was good to see everyone having fun and working together to build points for their team. We look forward to working with you all again soon.

I would firstly like to thank you all again for yesterday, it was a great day and everyone seemed to have a good time.  Barr all our legs killing us today!  Haha. 



"Well done gents - you proved that the boys have what it takes to beat the girls haha. To be fair though they weren't far behind so we may well need a rematch just so there are no doubts! Had a fantastic afternoon at Ardoe House with you all and look forward to another opportunity in the future. Gerry"
