Other activities included a golf simulator and an inflatable darts board. On the golf simulator people competed to get the longest drive, where the winner was Joe from Building Environment Solutions with a drive over 300 yards. He received a fourball at the Belfry golf course.

The customers were able to enjoy a hog roast and refreshments, along with having the opportunity to meet and socialise with the Oldham staff and key suppliers and manufacturers connected to the industry. Merchandise from all companies present was handed out during the day.
