Team Challenge Company had the very great pleasure of providing entertainment as part of the fabulous Festive Ladies Lunch at Crerar Thainstone House Hotel in Inverurie, which proved to be a wonderful afternoon of hospitality, dining and fun for all. The 80 plus guests were greeted by the team at the immaculately decorated Thainstone House Hotel, and moved through to the Ballroom Suite which had been transformed for into a Christmas wonderland, and we must say it looked amazing! The tables were set with festive trinkets and table centers, Holly and Christmas greenery adorned the bar area, and the spectacular Christmas Tree in the corner really set the room off! On top of all this, we had brought their own twist to proceedings, and the corners of the room were filled with entertainment for the afternoon, including our Descent Challenge from our ever popular Pressure Zone event, and our hugely impressive Wild West Saloon Bar Shoot Out! Also in the room was our brand new Race Car Simulator, giving our guests a chance to sit in the F1 style cockpit and choose to take on any racetrack in the world – something which brought plenty of fun and excitement throughout the afternoon – and one or two spins off the virtual track! Aberdeen based Radio Station, Original 106 FM and their star radio presenter Martin Ingram, were on hand to broadcast live from the event, a real treat for all in attendance.

All guests had some fun on the games and activities of the team building day before being welcomed to sit down by new General Manager at Thainstone House Hotel, Morag Stark, who started lunch proceedings in festive spirit, and all eyes lit up as the fabulous Christmas lunch was served in the wonderland ballroom. The food really was a sight to behold, and tasted every bit as good as it looked! The comments from our guests around the room about how brilliant everything was really did justice to the hard work and effort that the team at Thainstone House Hotel had put in – if you are booked in for Christmas lunch or dinner over the next couple of weeks you should be very excited!

As dining came to a close, our team sprung back into action as we welcomed 5 ‘elite athletes’ chosen at random from the crowd to step up and take our BATAK Wall, brand new for team building and evening entertainment events in 2015. The challenge was simple, to hit as many randomly lit targets as possible in 60 seconds, with top score taking away our Team Challenge Company Winner’s Trophy. The side challenge was to attempt to beat Jenson Button’s World Record of 114 Targets within the 60 second time frame – we were going to need something very special to top that!!!

Our Record Breaking BATAK athletes included Elaine and Krisztina from Dril-Quip, Joanna from Crerar Deeside Inn, Pauline from STV and Lesley from Baker Hughes – who in practice looked like an absolute pro at knocking out the targets…let’s hope the pressure of the big moment wouldn’t get to her! Each contestant stepped up one by one, all to rapturous applause from the watching crowds. The scores were racking up, though after a short while it became apparent that it would be incredibly tough to knock the professional Jenson Button off the podium! In the end, it came down to the difference of just one target, Lesley’s valiant 52 being just pipped at the post by a sensational 53 from Joanna, who stepped up to raise the much-coveted Team Challenge Company Winner’s Trophy aloft – congratulations!

A wonderful Festive Ladies Lunch had been thoroughly enjoyed by all in attendance, and a big shout out and thank you must go to Morag, Lynn, Claire, Tracey and the entire team at Thainstone House Hotel for the efforts in making the day truly special for all. Team Challenge Company are delighted to have such an exciting working partnership with Crerar Hotels, and very much look forward to working with Thainstone House Hotel and the entire Crerar Hotels group throughout 2015 and beyond.
