In order to cherish the bond of friendship, the Academic Program and HR (IPSA) committees of Jaipuria Institute of Management, Noida joined hands to organize an outbound activity on 3rd August 2019 to celebrate Friendship Day. With friends participating in huge numbers, the event was bound to be all about teamwork, trust and most importantly…Enjoyment!
The itinerary had three back-to-back games which started at around 1:30 PM in the mid lawn. All the participating teams had 5 members each. The following activities were conducted:
Activity 1: Balloon Round-Up
The objective of the game for the teams was to cross a specified path by standing next to each other in a line, holding a balloon between every two of them. The rules were simple- balloons shouldn’t fall, or else the teams had to start again. If the balloons pop, then the team loses.
Round 2 followed wherein wild cards were introduced to compete with the teams.
Activity 2: Blindfolds Maze
Blindfolds Maze was a time-bound activity! The teams were to choose a member, who was blindfolded and then guided by the other teammates to cross certain hurdles. The team who did so in minimum time was declared the winner.
Activity 3: Tic Tac Toe
Teams who won the first two activities had a face-off in Activity-3 which was a human-size version of the famous game Tic Tac Toe. The ultimate war was between the finalists, who were competing to drop their respective colored handkerchiefs in the nine-box size partitions and the first one to get 3 handkerchiefs aligned in a row or a column or diagonally we’re the ultimate champions of the day. The members were not allowed to touch the boundaries of the cell more than 3 times, which else would have resulted in a disqualification.
