The weather was fantastic for an afternoon of company team building activities at the opulent Ardoe House Hotel. The group were split into 4 teams with the captains selected; there were a few ruffled feathers as a few people, who we will not mention got picked for Kevin's team re-named the Magnificent 7.

We made our way out on the lawns for a fun packed afternoon and the teams quickly got themselves together as the all wanted to be named the Team Challenge Winner of 2011. There was a huge roar from the Catupult as the Misfits fired up the lane,  a great distance of 34 metres and an impressive looking sling shot (not) but we have to mention that the Magnificent 7 never even got out stocks. To be honest that's probably the worst team ever on Catapult. But things started to heat up with the Magnificent 7 with  a great time of 34.25 secs on the Rollerball but just got pipped by the post with an impressive time of 37.16 secs from the Misfits who were starting to get themselves an early lead.

It was the time for COD to try their hand at Stepping Stones and what a try it was, they worked really well as a team and never looked at stopping. Our hats go right out to this team as this was the only activity they won during the section which could have been a disaster later on. Our facilitator Stuart gave us some inside info on the worst team at this activity and it was... Misfits but not to name everybody but Hue Topman did stand out!

After a phenomal session we moved on to the Inflatable Fun section of the day. The Bucking Bronco played host to the first 2 teams COD and Well Disciplined. The teams tried so hard to hold on apart from Vicky who let go after 2 secs haha. But up stepped James to shouts form his team "Ride him cowboy" with a massive 27 secs to snatch victory from Well Disciplined. The golf was a comedy activity as all team tried their best but to be honest their was no Tiger Woods in the group.

It was a fun day for all but it all came down to Winners it was Magnificent 7 who stepped up to take the crown and take home the company trophy with a magnificent 5000 points. Comply or Die came a close second with a respectable 4750 points while it was Well Diciplined in third place and the Misfits bringing up the rear with 4000 points to take home the Wooden Spoon.

Delighted to hear that all went so well on the day, and that everyone in attendance enjoyed our Team Building matter what the Scottish weather through at you! Having spoken with Stephen, Bob and the rest of our team following your Team Building event, I found myself rolling on the floor with laughter following some of the hilarious stories they brought back! It has been an absolute pleasure to work closely with both Vicki and Kevin in the design and organisation of your Team Building afternoon, and think they both deserve a big shout out and round of applause for all the hard work and commitment they put in to making the day such a success. I sincerely look forward to working with you and the rest of the BP Exploration team again soon.

Great day at the beautiful Ardoe House Hotel in Aberdeeen with BP - such great ideas from some of the teams and get teamworking efforts throughout the day - the Misfits stepped up to the plate on the Rollerball with a quality design and construction that was top drawer but perhaps they had peaked too soon ! Congratulations to the Magnificent 7- consistently quality performance throughout the day - lets not mention the catapult here ! A big shout out to Kevin and Vicky for their hard work leading up to the event and on the day itself, your efforts were greatly appreciated by all and even though Kevin was in the winning team with cries of " fix " from the floor - Kevin knows that its good to be " The King " !
