After dinner, guests were split back into their teams to commence in a small selection of the new Beat the Clock activities. Our guests had on offer, Batak, Transporter, Omelette Making and Build the Clock Tower, all under pressure, all against the clock. Our teams moved round each activity trying to get the lowest time at each activity. Team Three were fantastic at Batak, however, unsure that they understood that you had to wait until the pad lit up before you had to hit it! With arms flying around, they reach the target in seconds! All teams struggled with Transporter… It looks much easier than it is. The team has to get the ball from one side of the activity, to the other, using tubes connected to ropes, controlled by the team. This takes a lot of skill and patience and when you’re against the clock, this is very hard to control! Only one team managed this within the allotted time, well done to Team Four with a very impressive time of 4 minutes 45 seconds! The chefs of Mercure Ardoe House Hotel took to their omelette making stations to help our teams and judge our omelette making contest. Which team could make their (edible) omelette in the fastest time? Simple? No. Some members of the teams had never made an omelette! One even confusing the challenge and making a fried egg! Well done to Team One who made their omelette edible and in the fastest time! Clock Tower proved very difficult for Team Two who struggled to get the right balance as each member of the team took a rope which operate the ‘crane’ and the team had to manoeuvre the crane to build a clock tower. The little tower blocks proved very tricky to pick up as this activity took a steady hand and a lot of team work. Well done to Team Three who completed this in an amazing time of 1 minute 28 seconds.
