Team Tanders comes from the word ” Matanda ” or Old .

However, not everyone will agree, since Sir Ver Garcia ( seasoned journalists and blogger ) was part of Team Pia .
This was the first activity that the team did when we arrived at the Tree Top Adventure after eating our breakfast last March 25 around past 10:30 am .

Team Building Challenges
This is not your typical team building activity which involves rock climbing , running around on trails and shouting out loud . Each Team is given 3 tries .We had to finish each activity with the fastest allotted time period. We have 8 challenges plus 1 cheering competition a total of 9 challenges .
The first challenge was the cheering game.
Our second challenge was held at the view deck area – It is called ABC or Alphabet challenge -Standing back to back with the other team members, each must recite the letters of the alphabet in proper sequence at the shortest possible time. Our team took us about 27 second in our first try , 15 second in our second try and 11 second in our last try.

Bar Lift Balance – team effort and proper coordination is required. There are marbles that are need to be lifted . this is our 3rd challenge.
LOOP LIFT -Using only your index fingers, each team member tries to lower a loop until a certain height, practicing team patience and coordination.
Team must transfer the loop to the other station without the marbles dropping. We finish the first 4 challenges with less time compared to the other team .
Pipeline – Team members are given pvc pipes which they would use to transfer a ping pong ball from one station to another without letting the ball fall to the ground using only one hand .
Treasure Hunt – quick mind thinking and speed. Team members are given pieces of a map that they need to form to see the bigger picture and determine the location of the treasure. Then a word ( Over 10 scrambled eggs ) was the final answer . Team Pia members was able to get the wooden idol just beating Team Tanders by few minutes .
Team Tanders – Won almost all the team challenges except for 3 challenges , Cheering- 74% Team Pia and 73% Team Tanders. Overall – Team Tanders got 854 points followed by Team Pia
This was announced last March 26 at the board room of Azalea Hotel and Residences.
Reflections and Moral Lessons
There were some mix emotions before the winners were announced. Some members of Team Tanders thought it was Team Pia who won the overall team building challenge . We all did our best and just enjoyed the team building activities.
Just as what out team leader Mr. Orlee Pasion said ” STOP, LOOK and LISTEN “. We may have our differences , but as a team settling our differences , combining our talent, communication, intelligence and patience -Makes Wonders.
That makes this team building activities closer. All of us became friends at the end of the journey .
