We are a large company in a "High Tech" environment. Tanque Verde Ranch was the perfect fit for our corporate event. We invited our customers to this event for a techical exchange forum and team building events. Our group ( 65 - 70) gave us the opportunity to do a ranch "buy out" which worked really well for our group. We had the abilitiy to conduct our forum and then take a break for "team building" activities that worked best for our schedule. We felt this schedule allowed attendees to stay more focused with a break in the early afternoon (after lunch).
The entire staff at the Ranch went "Above and Beyond" to ensure our event was a success. Based on our customer feedback we had the best results to date. Our sales manager (Richard) and our event coordinator (Nina) were on top of all of the details. Nina gave me suggestions for activities. Her suggestions always pointed in the right direction -- we were NOT disappointed by any event. We kicked off our event with an evening activity "Margarita & Salsa Challenge. It was an opportunity for people to get creative, not only creating a unique salsa but to name it and market it. We had alot of fun. Another recommendation by Nina was for one evening we had "Loop Rawlins" come and perform down in Cottonwood Canyon after our BBQ dinner. He gave a rope/gun demonstration. He was amazing! We took part in the Team Penning and Funkana team building activities which was enjoyed by everyone. The morning breakfast ride to the Old Homestead was beautiful. We had the owner cooking us Blueberry Pancakes. I could continue on with the experiences, the food, the venue, and the staff. The last evening we hosted a carnival of "Western" type games (ie. Ring Toss, Cow Patty Toss, Quick Draw, etc...). The guys LOVED the "Quick Draw" -- this was an immediate draw by our group (especially the ones who are competitive in nature). This was an experience that will talked about for a long time! It will be hard to top this event.
