Everyone had a fantastic time

Many thanks to you and your team for today. I can say with certainty that everyone, and that is the key point, everyone had a fantastic time.

The activities struck a perfect balance between demanding and fun.

Thanks

Hi Peter

Just a short note to say many thanks to you and your team for a great weekend. The boys thoroughly enjoyed themselves and thankfully we were very lucky with the weather.

Hope you have a good rest of the summer and will try and push a few more age groups your way !!

Super day!

Good morning Peter,

It was great to meet you on Friday!

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so, so much to you and the rest of the Arena Pursuits team for welcoming us and making the day such an enjoyable one.

Everyone was absolutely buzzing during and after the events, a great mix of activities which meant everyone could get stuck in – hats off to you for having to put up with us, especially on the reverse steer!!

Super day! Glad we were lucky with the weather too!

Many thanks again and please pass on my comments to your team.

Kind regards,

What a cracking day!

Dear Peter,

Thank you for a fabulous day which was more than expected, the whole experience is just what we needed to make sure the communication through the firm continues to grow. Your team there are a real credit to you and made the day go exceptionally smoothly and the lunch was absolutely great.

I am sure we will be coming back next year for another day in order to keep the team talking; they still haven’t stopped saying what a cracking day.

Thank you again for the hospitality that the team showed us.

Kind regards

Thank you so much for a really great weekend

Morning Peter

What can I say but thank you so much for a really great weekend – despite a few doppie heads on Saturday, I think the boys had a great time and I take my hat off to you and your team for your patience and perseverance …. I’m not sure I could do it!!

Obviously the quad biking and paintballing were the star activities although I think a few of them rather enjoyed swimming around in the canals!!

Also of course, many thanks for letting me have a go on one of the quads – thoroughly enjoyed it

Anyway, all the very best for the summer and once again, many many thanks for everything

Thank you for such a fun filled event

I firstly must say a HUGE thank you to your team and especially yourself for all the hard work and for arranging such a fun filled event for the Finance Team last Thursday. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are requesting regular similar events for the future.

Peter, thank you again for the lovely food, event planning and co-ordinating and superb barbeque. You certainly have a first class operation and excellent team.

Hope to have the pleasure of using your facilities again and as agreed, I have given your details to other departments in our company who I am sure will be contacting you soon.

Kind regards

We could not fault anything

I wanted to write to say thanks for such a brilliant day!

It was not the type of event that UST are used to attending for their team day and I was a little nervous about their reaction, but everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and they have had lots of good things to say since.

The day was both challenging and exciting. We came away exhausted, but with lots of good stories and photos. We could not fault anything. The staff were great and made everyone feel relaxed and welcome, even those who were perhaps apprehensive about some of the tasks that were ahead of them.

Lunch was delicious too!

BIG thank you once again!

Excellent day, highly recommended

I would just like to say a huge thank you for last Friday. It ran extremely smoothly, everyone was full of praise for the whole event and, although I know there were some who would have just liked to spend the day with the Honda cart, the variety of activities was spot on.

The food was well received, home cooked hot food outdoors is a great idea, and the chocolate afterwards hit the mark.

Here are just some of the feedback comments I’ve had back so far:

  • This was an excellent team building event that went beyond expectation and delivered us with an all round high quality event.
  • Engaging activities maintained interest and demonstrated the need for teamwork.
  • Excellent day, highly recommended.
  • A well presented, organised and enjoyable course of team orientated events. Whilst participation was as individuals in some events, even these provided an excellent forum for team bonding, communication, information exchange and mutual support/encouragement.
  • Overall a very enjoyable day of activities.
  • Valuable in that it forced cooperation and involvement rather than just talking to other members of the team.
  • The team exercises were extremely useful for highlighting the link between effective leadership and teamwork, and with successful outcomes.

We will definitely be recommending you to other parts of our business, and hope to see you again ourselves. The tank battlefield sounds good, and just email me when the zip wire is in. Happy to come over and test out.

The girls haven’t stopped talking about the quad-biking

Many thanks for a great afternoon and particularly to Ben, Sam and James who were brilliant. You can tell Ben that he has a new fan club as the girls thought he was really fit!!!

The girls haven’t stopped talking about how much fun the quad-biking was and it seems that some are trying to get groups of friends together to have a go.

One of the girls that came along is from our marketing team and hopefully she will persuade the powers that be to arrange a corporate event with you.

Many thanks again.

Kind regards

Thank you for a very exciting day

Thank you for a very exciting day last Friday. I speak for the whole company when I say we all felt we learnt a lot about ourselves and each other in the team building tasks we did. I would like to say thank you to you and your staff for making it a thoroughly enjoyable day for all.

Just to say a big thank you

Just to say a big thank you for all the work your team put into the day on Tuesday. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the office was still "buzzing” yesterday afternoon.

I don’t think Michael will let anyone forget that he had the best time on the pilots!

Hugely impressive facilities

It was a real pleasure to meet you today and many thanks for guiding us around your hugely impressive facilities.

I've trained people at many sites, both military and civilian, and can honestly say Arena is top of the class both in its breadth of activities and the immaculate condition you keep it.

I hope to see you at Arena again soon.

Ben

PS - the Arena Black was superb and I'm looking forward to tasting the Arena Gold!
