Corporate fun.

Kathmandu, May 3 -- Sixteen teams from different corporate houses gathered at the Kathmandu University School of Management (KUSOM) premises on Saturday to participate in the KUSOM Corporate Rundown '09. The day-long event was organised by the MBA students of the business school as a simulation exercise for students for managing events.

With the good intentions of promoting the Nepal Tourism Year 2011, the Rundown was a treasure hunt where the participating teams were given riddles about different places inside the Valley they had to race to. The checkpoints set by the students were at different tourist destinations and culturally significant places of Kathmandu. In each checkpoint they were given tasks to fulfill to determine the winning team.

Bishal Shrestha, Associate Director of the Graduate School of the ACE Institute of Management who was planning for a great day ahead said, "This is the first time I am participating in this kind of event. I am expecting it to be something like 'The Amazing Race' we watch on TV."

The 'amazing race' started from the KUSOM premises and travelled to Hattiban, Basantapur, Chovar, Swoyambhu and Pashupati in due course.

The participants had fun with the three-legged race at Chovar and at Basantapur the college volunteers distributed flyers and brochures promoting the Nepal Tourism Year. Then there were interesting games like reaching the Swoyambhu and counting the maanes at the temple and also racing to the Pashupatinath Temple and identifying a smaller temple inside its premises.

At the end of the day, the winners were announced with Doors 'n Windows winning the first prize. The first and second runner-ups were Citizens Bank and Margon Research and Consultancy respectively.

No losers in the race though as all the participants were treated with a gala dinner including a performance by the popular folk band Kutumba and other artistes after the race.
