Year End Party 2012 – Amazing Race

The Traffic Brand team put on their funky attire for our end of year party last Friday. We were split up into three teams and competed in an Amazing Race around the mini-peninsula. Starting in the Company’s Gardens in town, we completed a few fun team building exercises – we solved the human knot in no time and think we’re all a bit closer (literally) after that. From here the adventure started as we had specific tasks to complete around the CBD, these included bargaining with flower sellers on Adderley Street to get the biggest bunch of Proteas for R10, selling items to people around Green Market Square and retrieving specific information from historical buildings & statues.

From town, we boarded the Hop on, hop off red bus (one team successfully ran after the bus and caught it at a red light, the driver let them on and they avoided the 20 minute penalty) to Kirstenbosch, where we had a bunch of information to find. After lots of running around and laughing, we got back on the bus and headed towards Hout Bay, where a few individual challenges and more team building exercises were enjoyed on the beach. For the last leg of the race, we hopped back on the red bus to the V&A Waterfront where we had to complete a rowing challenge on the canals in front of the One & Only Hotel – beautiful!

The race was concluded at Quay Four for lunch and the winning team, “The Jokers” were announced, it was a very close race! From here, we headed to Mandy’s house for a relaxed and social evening – the drinks, food and great conversation flowed all night. Here are some photo’s of the epic day:

We learnt new things about each other, ourselves, our magnificent city and had loads of fun!
