The ever awe inspiring Ardoe House Hotel in Aberdeen was the setting for our corporate family fun day with Intertek. Around 120 employees and their families enjoyed the wide range of activities we had on offer for the duration of the afternoon. The Avalanche Wall dominated the skyline as our tallest inflatable played host to a lot of early interest from kids and adults alike. The kids often running our winners against their mums and dads. The Bungee Run played host to numerous family feuds throughout the day. So eager were the majority of competitors the standard bungee ropes could barely hold them back as they did everything they could to come away with the win.

Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting was as popular as ever, attracting a lot of attention from our wannabe marksmen both young and old. The weather held for the majority of the day, allowing most to enjoy the inflatable fun on offer including the Bouncy Castle and Ball Pool. Denver’s Den was as popular as ever, housing what seemed dozens of happy playful children. The first competition of the day was on the Surf Simulator as kids and adults batted it out to be king of the waves and walk away with the glorious Team Challenge Company Winner’s Trophy. Some fantastic times were posted as Claire and James were flying the flag for the 18 and over category. The kids stole the show however, as they proved a lot more durable than their older counterparts. Some spectacular falls which could have featured on ‘You've Been Framed’ were the highlight of a hotly contested competition. After all said and done it was young Isher who walked away with top prize after a mind blowing 76 seconds on the board! Well done to him! A very proud dad snapping his camera frantically at the young underdog scooping the gong.

The Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting competition was next up where the adults strived to exact revenge. Some fantastic efforts in the shooting throughout the competition as each individual clay was hit and quickly. Everyone battling out to win the second trophy on offer for the day. After some trigger happy rounds, delight and despair, it was Levi who shot to the top with some consistent and accurate gun work. The day began to draw to a close with everyone thoroughly enjoying what was an action packed, competitive, fun filled afternoon. Another wonderful time at Ardoe House Hotel with Intertek. See you next year!

Hahah, was funny enough reading Steve said ' Ali and Mags setting a whole new standard one again in the fashion world'... I am still laughing. What a brilliant night, brilliant host and people I met, enjoyed every second of it. See you next time too.



Wow! What a night. I'm still laughing at some of the dire gambling that went on all night, definitely a lot more practise on the cards for some. I'm sure there are still some sore feet from all of the Disco Dancing at the end of the night and sore ribs form all the laughter. Thoroughly enjoyed working with you all as always and look forward to seeing you again. Until then - SJ

Hi Guys, What a fab night!! This was my first night out with Aker and my first experience of Team Challenge and I just wanted to say what an amazing night my friends and I had in your company! The night was full of banter and laughter and the lads on the tables were brilliant, teaching 'us dafties' how to play. They certainly done an amazing job on my husband. The man has never even bought a lottery ticket, yet somehow manage to scoop the main prize of the night and win the trophy for best gambler and most money won!! How did that happen??!! Not something he will let me forget in a hurry that's for sure!! A special Mention to the Burlesque Hostess and the Host who kept the giggles and the night flowing effortlessly! Can't wait to see you all again on the next Big Night Out. Thanks Guys :)
