We launched our new club Great Times in Sector 43, Gurgaon with the Gurgaon Senior League, an exciting event that brought together seniors from neighboring societies. The competitions, which included quizzing, singing, carom and fashion, saw the participants compete with great enthusiasm!
We started with a brief introduction about Great Times, our new social, health and recreational club, for members 55 years and above. Then the first competition of the event, a Quiz, was held, with a total of 5 participating teams. The quiz had a number of rounds with different subject categories like sports, current affairs, Bollywood and Indian history. It was great to see the energy and zeal with which the teams competed. The quiz ended in a tie and went into a buzzer round, and then we finally had a winner.
After a quick snacks break, the league continued with a singing competition. All the participants gave a short introduction about themselves and shared thoughts on their passion for music. The competition gave the seniors a platform to showcase their talents. They sang old melodies and bhajans. The appreciation from the crowd encouraged many more people to participate in the competition on the spot.
Lunch was a social affair, where everyone interacted with each other while enjoying the food.
Post that we had the Carom competition. There were 4 teams of 2 people each. In the first round, the 4 teams competed in lots of 2, each lot at a separate table. Rules were made clear at the start and a referee was allotted to each table. The rules made the game challenging as well as fun. After the elimination round, the winning teams played a nailbiting final!
The Gurgaon Senior League wound up on a light and fun note with a Fashion Show. The theme was ethnic wear. All the senior women, dressed in their traditional finery, gracefully walked the ramp amongst cheers from the crowd! The day ended with a prize distribution ceremony.
