Operation Speeboat reaches its climax
5th annual remote control race takes place at Business Park
Guests were revved up at Chiswick Park last Friday for the first round of heats of Operation Speedboat, the 5th annual remote control speedboat race, one of the most popular events to come to Chiswick Park.
600 guests turned out to watch the spectacle which saw a total of 144 people in teams of 4 battle it out for a place in the semi-finals. Nimble-fingered participants had to manoeuvre their boats around buoys to complete the course in the fastest time.
The competition's grand final, set for this Friday 22nd July from 12.00pm, will see the winners and runners up from the first heats go forward to compete head to head in the semi finals, later followed by the finals of the contest.
Four lucky teams will go on to win a voucher for an amazing day out from Red Letter Days.
Now in its fourth year the summer events season, which runs from June until September on the Events Square at the Park, continues to be a resounding success. Forming a key part of Chiswick Park’s enjoy-work lifestyle ethos, the events offer the opportunity for participants to try a number of new experiences and gain valuable skills. As well as introducing an element of summer-time fun into Friday lunchtimes, the activities also have a more serious role in encouraging team-building and motivation in the workplace, helping to create a sense of community across the park and among neighbouring residents and businesses.
As always refreshments from a barbeque will be supplied for the crowds and participants, and a live band will supply the soundtrack by playing a selection of popular tunes.
All of the summer events at Chiswick Business Park are open to both employees based at the park and local residents.
