3rd SGAM Treasure Hunt – December 11-12th, 2010

 The 3rd SGAM Treasure Hunt event started on an eventful and chirpy morning from the KL Bird Park in the Lake Gardens. Long before the early sunrise at 6.30am, 120 participants representing 30 teams from SGAM member organizations were already registering and collecting their goody bags and tulips. As soon as all were ready once the event organizers briefed them on the rules and regulations, the first car was flagged off by the Secretary of SGAM, Mr. Woo Yuen Seng.

 The convoy of cars then took off towards their scenic destination in the cool mountains of Cameron Highlands, eventually checking in at the Century Pines Hotel.

 Along the way, all participants ‘hunted’ for answers based on the tulips and clues provided. Promoted as a fun and family event, some teams were made up of family members who were a match for the other regular hunters. The 150km journey took them along the old trunk roads, reaching the finish station at Tapah just after lunch hours. After the mid-day meal, they continued up the winding road and checking into the Hotel in the evening.

 After a refreshing rest, participants were treated to a sumptuous dinner, followed by a presentation of the event where the hunters were caught candidly at various stops checking their clues and some even exchanging answers!

 Finally, it was time to announce the winners where Team Oracle Malaysia emerged Champions in their first ever participation of this event. Runners-up and third place was won by teams from IBM.

 All in all, participants thoroughly enjoyed the event which was a refreshing change to the hectic work in the capital. This event was made possible through platinum sponsors – IBM, Gold Sponsors – Silverlake and Oracle Malaysia.
