The sun was shining and welcoming our globetrotting guests from KDAB to the stunning Atholl Palace for their wild afternoon of truly Scottish fun in the form of a Team Challenge Company Highland Games Afternoon.

The nine teams were raring to go as the activities kicked off with a game of Haggis Hurling, with several of the teams managing to throw the wellie into the surrounding trees, not quite understanding the aim of the game! At the same time the teams were on Stone Lift showing us all that the true strongman of the day was little Bastian with his remarkable strength with just a little help from his friends. Fly Casting was also a tough one for the teams with fewer wet flies than we had hoped. Toss the Caber lead to a win for Royal Blue and Initrode with Michael completing to screams of "Good Toss Mate!"

After a quick refreshment break to make the most of the remarkable sunshine we were off to the fast and furious Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting with our American friends in their element, if a little disappointed that there were no live targets. Our wild Hey You Jimmy assault course saw the teams dress up in their kilts and wigs and run for their lives through the course.

Now for the very important scores on the doors! All the teams put in a massive effort and did a very good job at being Scottish Highlanders for the day. In last place with a respectable 4700 points and taking home our wooden spoon was the Overheads (occasionally referred to as Team Useless!)- bad luck guys! But in first place with a whopping 6750 and winning our very prestigious Team Challenge Trophy was the Oragami!

Big shout out to Alison and Helena for their fantastic work in putting the afternoon together for the group. There was so much laughter and hilarity, it was a day that will surely not be forgotten. We look forward to working with you again very soon.

What a fantastic afternoon this was! Still haven't worked out how to pronouce THAT team name - think you will forever be known as Shalalalalas haha! Was definitely my accent at fault as opposed to your choice of name though. What a fierce tug of war we had at the end too! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you all and I look forward to meeting you all again in the future. Sarah-Jane
