Happy lots: The winners who bagged the first three prizes in the Father's Day event organised by Brookefields in association
COIMBATORE: ‘Daddy's day out', a fun-filled event organised by Brookefields mall to mark Father's Day saw the participation of 77 eager father-child duos at Brookefields. As fathers, both old and young seated with their children, waited for a day of fun and games, shoppers looked on from the upper floors of the shopping complex.
The event that commenced in the afternoon went on into the evening and had people cheering on throughout.
The media partner for the event was The Hindu and the other partner was Radio City.
The day began for the players with a simple memory game.
Everyday items of different sorts were placed on three tables. The teams were given half a minute to memorise each item.
Once the items were covered, the teams were asked to list down all the items they could recollect.
Things got a little messy for the fathers, however, when in round two, they were fed ice cream by their blindfolded children within 30 seconds. Most of the fathers came out of the round, ice-cream dripping from their mouths.
These two rounds decided the fate of the participants who were now narrowed down to 10 teams. The 10 teams were faced with a new hurdle.
To test their co-ordination skills, each team had to now catch and throw rings at each other in 30 seconds.
With eight teams left, the competition heated up with the rapid fire round.
The contestants had to choose from various categories such as Automobiles, Television Advertisements, Sports, Coimbatore and so on.
Sanjesh, a seventh standard student, breezed through the round as he chose the cartoons category.
Pradeep Yuvaraj, the host held the attention of the audience throughout with questions and interactive sessions. Gift vouchers sponsored by Brookefields were distributed.
After the mega quiz, the final battle for the players was piecing together a Mickey Mouse puzzle.
Though both teams tried desperately, the determination of D. Ajith and young Aarthi got them the grand prize of Rs.20,000.
Closely following them were the father-son duo of Ram Kumar and R. Arun who took away the second prize of Rs.10,000.
The third prize of Rs.5,000 was given to the father-son duo of N. Ashok Kumar and A.Ashwin. Each of the teams was also handed a Club Mahindra voucher for a family holiday.
The prizes were distributed by D. Rajkumar, Regional General Manager, The Hindu, A.S. Togo, Senior Assistant Regional Manager (Advertisement, The Hindu) and Solomon Porres – Associate Programming Director.
