Well what an intense morning it was at in the grounds of the beautiful Culloden Hotel in Belfast! Team Challenge Company had the pleasure of hosting our fast and fun filled Crystal Challenge for the lovely team from Verint. To kick off the morning, teams were given the task of coming up with a team name. The best name won a crystal to give them a head start on their points, putting them in the lead for the desired Team Challenge Company Winners’ Trophy.  It was close between Team ‘2 Unlimited’ and ‘Team One to Beat’ but after much deliberation, it was Team ‘One to Beat’ that won the first crystal of the day.

In the first rotation we had our two best physical activities that would put both teams through their paces - the Towers of Hanoi and the hilarious Chicken, Fox and Grain. Both teams were successful at this task; however team “One to Beat” suffered as their towers collapsed on The Towers of Hanoi, losing them out on a crystal. It was time to nominate the most skilled member of each of the teams for our individual challenges. First up of the individual challenges was Flag Race. This challenge required the most skillful and patient person to face the intensity and pressure of this challenge. Both teams beat the 23 second time limit in a frantic race to capture all the flags, but unfortunately, neither was successful in beating the sub 18 seconds, only missing it by 0.26 of a second.

Competitive spirits were high and the competition started to get really hot as we moved into the next round! It was time for the ever so popular NASA challenge and extremely frustrating Labyrinth and Giant Jigsaw. The teams came together and were both successful at the NASA challenge, despite one person being determined that milk was the biggest necessity of survival! The next challenge required the mental capabilities of the team (I don't think team “One to Beat” chose very well) team “2 Unlimited” managed to secure their final crystal and were beginning to get pumped up for the Crystal Challenge finale, as they could see how close it was going to be.

We counted up the crystals after the final challenge and team “2 Unlimited” were in the lead! However, this isn’t the be all and end all as it was all down to how much money each team could grab in the Crystal Dome! After all the money grabbing was complete in the Crystal Challenge Dome, it was time to count the money and reveal the winning team! It was indeed team “One to Beat” who had stolen the lead, finishing up with an outstanding 1200 points, managing to take home the ever popular Team Challenge Company Trophy. Team “2 Unlimited” were close behind with 1000 points.

The whole morning was an absolute blast and it was a pleasure to have had such a laugh in the sunshine with the guys from Verint. Many thanks to Natalie for the planning of the day, hopefully we'll see you all again soon!
