The Great Farm Race at Gratchi Farms Tagaytay

 Team building participants at the Gratchi Farms Tagaytay entrance

I was too busy and I was not able to post this soonest.  About two months ago,  I was given a task to look for a team building venue for a cross functional team building hosted by our Quality Assurance Department.  It was a short notice and so I immediately browse the web for some team building venues and came up with some proposals.  One of the venue I found is located in the cool breeze ,city of Tagaytay called "Gratchi's Getaway" which was the chosen venue for the team building.

 A peaceful and refreshing place

Gratchi Farm is a 6-hectare natural landscape and a great venue for team building activities, conferences, seminars, educational tours, workshops, events or simply for relaxation.  We availed of the day tour with the "Great Farm Race." It was a day full of action packed creative activities and physical challenges to encourage trust, camaraderie and team spirit.  We were divided into two teams ~ Yellow Team and Red Team.  The team must find  a series of checkpoints within the resort, decipher clues and must successfully complete each task before they can proceed with the next to complete and win the farm race.
