It has been four years & eight months in the IT career and during all this time heard a lot about one thing that is team outings & when outing word comes any where I am the most excited person, as I love travelling & exploring new places. This time with my new team of 30 people we went to the Corianthans Club Pune. Almost 10 KM form Magarpatta City office near NIBM road Kondhwa Pune. Its beautiful property to chill out & enjoyment.
So as decided by managers on 20th July after 12:00 Noon meeting we will leave from office to outing place. That day morning we all came to office early in the morning as we need to have at least 4 login hours. Everyone that day was with smiling face & waiting for the party time to come. In this way finally at 12:30 PM we all left from the office & reached venue around 1:15 PM. After reaching there we had delicious starters & soups. At the same time we had some group pics in the banquet hall & in resort area too. A while later we had our lunch too, till we all finished with our lunch it was 4:00 PM in clock.
Actual fun started after that & had lots of enjoyment in it. Outing organizers Mohit & Jayaprakash started opening one after other surprises for all of us. As it was rainy day out there then also they beautifully managed all activities for us all. Initially they handover-ed one paper to each person present there. It was like fill in the blanks but with the name of any team member. On that paper some adjectives were mentioned like Most Beautiful Lady in team, Angry Young Man, Cool Dude, Famous Personality, Enthusiastic Person, Rotlu of Team, Silent Person, Don of ERU, Helping hand like this almost 20 adjectives were there. After 10 minutes they collected those papers from us.
Later both of them announced the second game & that was Housie. Most of us were not that much aware of this game so we asked to explain it first before starting so Mohit & JP explained it nicely.
In this game any number of players can play. Each player will have a ticket with random numbers of (any between 1 & 99) in 3 rows.. We organizers have some coins printed from 1 to 99 on them.
How to play:
We will pick one coin at a time & will announce it aloud…
The players who have the number in their tickets, will make a note of it…
Its HOUSIE if you mark all the numbers in your ticket before any one else does..
Also you can play for First Row, Second Row & Third Row.
It sounded interesting & we all started playing it with very much energy & passionately. Everyone was eagerly & with full attention listening the numbers announced by organizers. In such way some comments in between were (bhai maine kya paap kiya mera to 1k bhi number nahi lag raha) , (mera ho gaya mera ho gaya jake ke dekha to column hua hai not row…hahaha), (some one was asking agar single number bhi nahi aaya to use bhi gift hai kya). In such way finally Nirmala got her HOUSIE & declared as winner.
Later organizers came with very creative & full team effort game. I don’t know the name but it was very enjoyable one. As per our available people count, we made five teams each with 5 participants. four will play the game and one will monitor for any cheating is going on there or anything else but monitoring for different team. It was very awesome & lovely team building activity. In it Ishwar’s team declared as winner as they completed the task at first.
Then after best ever game started & it was none other than Musical Chair. For that our DJ was Apoorva & Mohit was looking for the arrangements later he got busy in 1st games result & I took over his part in that game. In this way after eliminating one by one last five participants remained in the game was Ishwar, Aditya, Nirmala, Vaibhav & Piyush. Finally after eliminating remaining participants Ishwar become the winner in it.
Finally all the winners of adjective game & musical chair got the prizes one by one with sweetness & lots of love. Later all we get served with tea & break for few minutes. Suddenly our DJ started the Dhating songs & we all got attracted towards it & started dancing with full of madness. In this way how time completed no one noticed & it was 7:00 PM. At last one sweet surprise were waiting for us & it was small but sweet gift of Happy Man Statue.
After that we had some group pics outside the hall in resort property & left the place by taking beautiful memories of that day with us.
