Imagine the Olympic Games were invented in Somerset and fuelled by scrumpy cider...?
Split into teams to take on a series of giant inflatable games, competitive challenges and South West whimsey. A hilarious afternoon where the winners will be the team that can laugh the most while keeping calm under pressure. Somerset Challenge is best done outdoors but can be enjoyed inside in wetter months.
Imagine if The Wurzels were to organise the Olympic Games, and starting places were reserved only for athletes who trained on a strict diet of scrumpy cider, pasties and a refusal to take any of the events even remotely seriously. Add a large slice of West Country charm and your competitive team members and you're close to understanding the madness that is the Somerset Challenge.
Separate your staff into teams mixing junior and senior staff members, young and old and splitting departments to encourage new interdepartmental working relationships. Add some fun instructors/’Country Marshals’, a good dose of competitive spirit and some totally bizarre but hilarious games and get set for a team building afternoon like no other.
Challenges you'll face include:CIDER RUN CHALLENGE:
Attached to an inflatable track by a bungee rope, you'll race against another team and the rope to grab pints of scrumpy before the bungee rope reels you back in.PITCH FORK DUEL:
Having problems with interdepartmental squabbles? Settle it with a battle of inflatable pitchforks. You'll be wondering how no one ever thought of it before!?!MANGOLD DANGLING:
A unique game of bar skittles where you team become human targets and must keep their balance to stay on their podiums.TRACTOR TYRE ROLL TRIUMPH:
Work together to get a huge tractor tyre from one end of the field to the other; Teamwork will win over brute strength every time.WURZEL KNOCKOUT:
Good at hitting office targets? Now you'll need to do it with cider apples and a huge catapult.VICKY POLLARD HANDBAGS:
Time to select some team members for a fancy dress challenge, to do battle and take one for the team as handbags become the weapon of choice.WELLY WANGING:
Simply throw a welly as far as you possibly can. Purists believe this should have become an Olympic sport years ago!DRUNK PUB SKITTLES:
The traditional game of pub skittles given a hilarious Somerset twist. Oooh arrrrr!FARMER SHOWER:
Involving one member from each team, a large trough of shower water and the ability to cope under pressure... It's going to get messy!
