Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort beat off competition from 26 other Ruparelia Group subsdiaries to emerge overall winner at the Group’s annual sports day gala. The gala was held at Kampala International School Uganda (KISU) in BUkoto.
The five star hotel was followed by flower growers Rosebud Limited and Kabira Country Club in the top three sports. Remarkable performance was recorded from Kampala Parents School which narrowly missed out on the top three spot.
Hundreds of the Group’s employees left the comfort of their desks to put on sports gears to tussle it out with their comrades in sports and games like football, Tag Rugby, Darts, Suduku, Scrabble, Athletics, Wheelbarrow race, Tug of War, Egg and Spoon Race and Sack Race.
While many struggled on field track, many showed glimpses of talent and enthusiasm to give all they could to win something for their teams. Football, tug rugby and athletics were most competitive and gruesome.
Games like sack and egg race were comical but participants put up a brave show by being astute and careful. Team and individual winners won trophies and cash prizes to incentive them. The organizers promised a better show next year.
Rajiv Ruparelia, Ruparelia Group director thanked the organizers for doing a good job and participants for coming to grace the occasion because without them the event ‘wouldn’t happen.’
