    3. Obstacle course - All team members regardless of age and fitness level will be able to take part in this Confidence Course. It will be tailored to your team's capability. This is team building at its best where the whole team must look out for the others in their group by encouraging and helping less confident members overcome 34 obstacles over a 3km course. Everyone must participate and pull together to overcome the challenges. You will get dirty, but showers and changing facilities are available for afterwards. For groups of 20 or more, catering can be arranged on request.
    4. Axe Throwing - Expert instructors will teach your team how to become accomplished at axe throwing. It's harder than it looks. Are you up for this fun challenge?
    5. Jungle Lane - Another fantastic team building opportunity that will let your team show off their communication and organisation skills. Everyone will have a good time while reacting quickly to targets that pop out randomly. They just have to make sure they don't shoot the mother and baby!
    6. .22 Cal Gas Powered, Bolt Action Pistols and/or Rifles - It's competition time! How many points will you score? The targets range in size to test your ability.
