solutions to puzzles. They would need to speak to locals to get
information. In doing their tasks, teams need to plan and prioritise
whereby they use their strengths to gain maximum points from the

2) Bau Outdoor Challenge (BOC)
Objectives- Teamwork and bonding, motivation, going beyond the
comfort zone, physical fitness, communications and fun.
We begin with an event brief for all participants the day before.
This takes the form of a PowerPoint presentation. A number of clues
would be shown on this brief without informing the participants.
Team would be given task sheets, identifying items e.g., headband,
lion cloth, T-shirt etc. They are also required to form a team
slogan or chant as well as make their own flag.
A number of activity and adventure stations are set-up all over Bau
and its surrounding areas. Teams embark on these stations to carry
out different tasks. This includes mental challenges, building
skills and adventure activities. There maybe one or two food
challenges too. All teams gather in the late morning for a
mini-sports meet. Teams will be pleasantly surprised that these
sports challenges comes with a twist and 'evens out the playing
field'. Lunch would be served after the mini-sports meet. This can
be catered or packed lunch. The challenges continue after lunch
until the cut off time when all teams return to the stadium area for
debriefing, result announcement and prize giving, after which all
teams return to Kuching.
Teams would be scored on both their performance during the
challenges and also in how they carry themselves with team chants,
flag waving, encouragement and team work. The scorers are also
looking for leadership, organisation, delegation, communications
(includes listening skills), and innovation, etc.
We have a team of photographers and video shooters where we would
provide the client with photos and video of the event. We would
supply iced drinks with lunch, PA system, music and DJs at the
