The Fun Experts bring the laughter to a team building event for Booths!
Happy Wednesday sunshines! Is it just us or is time flying by? We're nearly half way through July! And yes, we just had to pick ourselves up off the floor too. We are pretty sure we were eating Easter eggs, blinked and now we're soaking up the rays (we like to be optimistic about the British summer!) Before we start frightening you and shouting the C word (that's short for Christmas), we want to enjoy the FUNshine and tell you all about some our recent summer adventures involving some exciting new ideas and equipment - there's never a dull moment at The Fun Towers!
Here at Sunshine Events we pride ourselves in delivering competitive, motivational and energetic Team Building Events (and of course for being super duper FUN!) We can cater for groups of any size and our personal and friendly approach allows us to work closely with our clients helping to create a fun-filled day filled with lots of totally funtastic challenges!
When we were approached by high-end supermarket chain Booths (I know, we have some pretty swanky friends right?) we understood that our client was looking to discover a whole new meaning to teamwork. Catering for 30 of their employees, Booths wanted to create friendly competition, encourage communication and of course, have lots of FUN! We can't wait to tell you all about it!
When Booths' wish list landed at The Fun Towers, our team of Fun Experts couldn't wait to put together a fantastic Team Building package and after assessing our client's needs, we created a brand spanking new totally bespoke package! After last year's summer of fun, we noticed that our It's A Knockout Package needed a little revamp (we do love a bit of TLC!) and so our clever little Fun Expert Fil saw this as the perfect opportunity. We'll let you into a little secret, Booths were our first ever client to try out this totally revitalised package!
The event was set to take place in the grounds of Samlesbury Hall. Prior to the event, our Fun Experts were let loose from The Fun Towers to inspect the site and have a good ol' nosy! They were pleased to see that that the area was flat and open, perfect for the ideas we had in mind. The Team Building Package was themed around a total of 5 games which of course ended with our all-time favourite Tug Of War and was made up of our following fun equipment and games;
- River Cross Challenge
- Spanish Omelette Relay
- Winter Ski Challenge
- Flag Grab Obstacle Course
- Mannequin Mix Up
The brand new Its A Knockout Package can cater for up to 100 people and with a team of 30, this meant we had more time for bonus rounds! Our event host rivalled up the crowd getting them to do all things weird and wonderful. Twist dancing, moon walking and even eating a biscuit off your head (tougher than it looks!) you name it, and the team at Booths tried it.
On site at the event, our Fun Expert Fil split the team into four teams of 7 - North vs South! And our games allowed for all teams to run at one single time. Our River Cross game involved team work, communication and logic as guests needed brains as well as speed to get across the River. The teams then attempted the Winter Ski challenge where good communication skills are essential to get to the Ski lodge but there's a twist, ear muffs are worn by all team mates so communication is that little bit harder (what did you say?)
The team at Booths were then strapped into our Hungry Hippos Inflatable as they raced to dress their mannequin (psst, this was a real person!) There was lots of smiles and laughter with this challenge as some teams placed the items on the wrong parts of the body - yes, we spotted the trousers on the head! More fun and games to follow as the teams then made their very own Spanish omelettes and space hopped their way to victory.
The winning team took their pride of place on the Winner's Podium as We Are The Champions blasted from the speakers and the winners made the best use of their bottle of bubbly spraying it all over themselves...and everybody else!
An absolutely fantastic day and both Booths and The Fun Experts could not be happier! We are over the moon that the new games ran superbly and even more pleased that the day was embraced by every individual. It really was brilliant to see the whole team involved and we can't wait for our next event with our super FUNky client!
Have a fantastic week! We'll see you next week for more sunshine adventures.
