Amazing race ala WOU!

Forty students from four institutions of higher learning participated in the inaugural WOUmazing Race held at the main campus today.

The institutions were WOU; Stradford International College, Prai; InfoGenius Skills Training Centre, Gelugor; and Institut Wawasan, Kulim. Each institution was represented by two teams with 5 members per team.

The students warmed-up with a zumba workout led by Penang Regional Centre (PGRC) marketing & admissions officer Robin Cheah Kai Yang before teaming up for the games.

STUDENTS GATHER IN THE FIELD BEFORE THE START OF THE EVENT.

The participants sportingly challenged each other in four station games, with 10 minutes allotted per station.  The games needed speed, precision, memory and teamwork as marks were accorded for completion of the different activities and tasks.

In the Mind Your Mines game, one member, blindfolded, must navigate between overturned paper cups to collect the labelled cups in the maze, guided by his/her team members.  The Tower of Breath game required participants to blow balloons placed inside cups to carry and build a 4-storey tower (10 cups), without using their hands.

As for Find Your Pearls, participants were asked to remember a sequence flashed to them for 5 seconds, and then to arrange cards according to the sequence, and also answer a mathematics question.

A Wet Kangaroo saw participants get into a sack, hop to collect balloons filled with water using their mouths, and bring them back to the starting point. The team must collect as many balloons as possible.

Info Genius Team A emerged as champions and they were presented with 5 entry tickets to The Top Komtar by PGRC director Ching Huey Ling. The all-girl Emcee Stradfordian team came in as runner-up and received 5 entry tickets to Entopia for their effort, and in third place was WOU Team B who won 5 entry tickets to Magic World Phantamania.

The event was organised by PGRC together with the Full-time Student Council committee members.

The students had a fun time, after which they munched and quenched their thirst, thanks to the food trucks and stalls selling a variety of Western dishes, Indian foods, laksa, cendol, kuih, ice cream and drinks.
