XTASY-2K14 : AFTER BUZZ # 3 Remembering the Treasure Hunt

By: priyambada choudhury
While everyone was waiting for the DJ to turn on the heat this XTASY, there were a group of people with a different plan in mind. They let the dogs out on the final day. Up, they stormed the most exciting fun event "TREASURE HUNT 2K14". 549 team members, 183 teams, 20 coordinators and a brilliant idea.

The initial screening round invited online word dox registration. The response was so over whelming that the on-spot registration had to be cancelled. phew..!!

Over a time period of 4 hours, the teams were slashed to 15. The hunt phase began and boy o boy, there was a stampede in the architecture block. Everyone ran to steal forth the chocolates, flowers, cold drink cans, key rings, toys, almost anything and everything. What was funny was some stole the key of the notice board as well(thinking it was a clue).

well, well..!! The final one hour saw our 1st tie-breaker. y? to select the last team
Then the race began. One from final year, two from 1st year and one from 2nd year. Our finalists ran through hell chasing billboards, quotes, walls, canteens, halls, gates for clue. And we did have the winner "The Scarecrows". Thanx to TITAN, CCD, HONDA and our other sponsors, they took home the treasure;the golden globe(yes yes..!!), the parchment (we are dramatic..!!) the gold plated lamp, the vouchers, the gold chocolate coins...!!


While Vishakha was busy with the idea, Plaban, Rohitaksh, Rudrasis, and Sradhendu were setting up the technical team. Shyaam  and Mahesh were busy being our own sherlocks with his clues. Arvind clicking away. Rakshya, Apurva, Sohan were busy keeping seniors sane. And your pentastic was busy too..!! Last but not the least Congrats Kaushik Goel, Prayash and Akankshya Mishra for winning the chest...:)
