The Amazing Q hunt 2014 edition was Funnnnnnnnnnnnnnn ! It was held today on 26th January 2014 and covered the city of Mumbai
The teams got an email with the first clue that would them to the starting point – “round n round the King went cruising. And there was a protest!”
They racked their brains with a word-game, did some physical running and the funny frog walk and the chicken walk.
Then they tried their hands at making pottery, gained some important knowledge and answered questions about sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and later applied that knowledge by selling condoms to the general public to generate awareness. The proceeds of this sale are handed over to QAM. They counted steps, wore three different T-shirts, stood in a loooooooooong line at a bakery to get food for their team-mate and themselves.
Having done all this, a breather was due and the teams then worked indoors to solve a cute jigsaw puzzle and built a card castle (which was hilariously collapsing, most of the time!).
The contestants then visited the picturesque Sewri fort and ate some special Q-Hunt style spicy chips (for our spicy contestants) and washed it down with nice hot chai! ;-p
The teams then flexed their muscles and cleaned cars to earn another 100 bucks for QAM, and then tried out the favorite task, based on spreading rumors (so prevalent in our community), by playing out Chinese Whispers. Most showed their proficiency at passing around half-heard things! ;-p
Finally the teams tried to show their team work by pulling threads through needles single-handedly and crossed the finished line – tired and worn out, but happy, from what we witnessed
Heartfelt thanks to our volunteers, who so selflessly contributed their time and efforts in making the event a smooth process.
And of course our sincere gratitude to the prize sponsors (Pink Pathernee and party; Azaad Bazaar; Sprouts) for the fabulous prizes they lavished on our winning team, the 1st runner up, 2nd runner up and the special prizes for some particular tasks.
If you have read through the entire report and felt excited, do not hesitate to join in the next year’s edition
Lotsa devilish luv,
The Amazing Q Hunt Team,
Arayan, Sushil, Arjun
