50 shades ~ A Recap

Being confined to their homes, the youth of Sri Lanka are in boredom and it was quite evident that they needed a new thrill in their lives. The initiative 50 Shades the biggest Virtual Scavenger Hunt was back for the 2nd year in a row to liven the lives of both Rotaractors and Non-Rotaractors.

Head Pirates were waiting at the Pirate Island with the treasure worth Rs. 12000 for the arrival of fellow pirates. Sailing to the destination was not that easy. The head pirates asked the fellow pirates to form a team of 3. Where the hunt began with 60+ teams with over 180 Pirates. The Head Pirates gave 50 riddles and several other challenges including bonuses and jackpots. Pirates had to decode the clues to find the answers and had to perform the challenges to sail the ship successfully to the Pirate Island.

They had to visit 05 Harbors, known as Levels, the places where they get to know their clues and challenges. Meanwhile, Head Pirates at their cockpit assigned the clues and challenges for the Pirates.

In Level 01, the pirates had to solve 10 riddles which were there in all 05 Levels. Alongside that, they had a major challenge in testing their sense of humor, where they were asked to create a meme about Fried Chicken by Crizzpy’s Chicken, our sponsor for the hunt.

ප්‍රධාන මුහුදු කොල්ලකරුවන් පයිරේට් දූපතේ රු. 12000 ක් සමග සෙසු මුහුදු කොල්ලකරුවන්ගේ පැමිණීම සඳහා බලාපොරොත්තුවෙන් සිටී අතර, සෙසු කොල්ලකරුවන්ට ගමනාන්තයට යාත්‍රා කිරීම එතරම් පහසු නොවීය. කොල්ලකරුවන්  3 දෙනෙකුගෙන් යුත් කණ්ඩායම් 60 ක් සමඟ මුහුදු කොල්ලකරුවන් 180 කට වැඩි පිරිසකගේ සහභාගීත්වයෙන් ගවේශනය ආරම්භ විය. ප්‍රධාන මුහුදු කොල්ලකරුවන් ප්‍රහේලිකා 50 ක් සහ බෝනස් සහ ජැක්පොට් ඇතුළු අභියෝග කිහිපයක් ලබා දුන්හ. මුහුදු කොල්ලකරුවන්ට පිළිතුරු සෙවීම සඳහා හෝඩුවාවන් විකේතනය කිරීමට සිදු වූ අතර නැව සාර්ථකව යාත්‍රා කිරීම සඳහා වූ අභියෝගයන් ඉටු කිරීමටද සිදු විය.

ඔවුන්ගේ හෝඩුවාවන් සහ අභියෝග දැන ගැනීමට ඔවුන්ට levels නමින් හැඳින්වෙන වරායන් 05 කට සේන්දු වීමට සිදුවිය. මේ අතර, නායක කොල්ලකරුවා ඔවුන්ගේ නියමු කුටියේ දී මුහුදු කොල්ලකරුවන්ට ඉඟි සහ අභියෝග ලබා දුන්නේය.

Rtr. PP කසුන් සිගෙරා, DRR. Rtn. Rtr. PP අහමඩ් හුසේන් සහ IPDR Rtn. Rtr. PP ක්‍රිෂාන් බාලාජි, 50 Shades පිළිබඳ ඔවුන්ගේ අදහස් බෙදා ගැනීමට එක් විය.

නිධානය දිනාගත් මුහුදු කොල්ලකරුවන් හෙළි කිරීමට අවසාන මොහොත පැමිණියේය. 2021 50 Shades හි විජයග්‍රාහකයන් වූයේ Hora 50 Shades කණ්ඩායම වන අතර එහිදී Biscuit කණ්ඩායම සහ Sparrow කණ්ඩායම දෙවන හා තෙවන ස්ථාන ගත්හ. විනෝදයෙන්, කුතුහලයෙන් හා දැනුමෙන් සන්නද්ධ දූපත සාර්ථකව ගවේෂණය කිරීමට කොල්ලකරුවන්ට සති 3 කට ආසන්න කාලයක් ගත විය.  50 Shades යනු සියලු මුහුදු කොල්ලකරුවන්ට (සහභාගිවන්නන්ට) සදහටම ආදරයෙන් රැකබලා ගැනීමට මතක රැස් කර දුන් අවස්ථාවක් බව නොරහසකි.

අපගේ අභියෝග සහකරුවන්  සහ විශේශයෙන්ම අපගේ රිදී අනුග්‍රාහකයන් වන Hoola Hoop සහ Blue Earth වෙත අපගේ කෘතඥතාවය මෙසේ  පලකරමු.

මෙම ගවේශනය හුදෙක් ජයග්‍රහණය උදෙසා නොව අවසානය දක්වා රැදී සිටීම පිලිබදවයි .

නොසැලී අවසන තෙක් රැදී සිටී කොල්ලකරුවන් සියල්ලන්ටම අපගේ ප්‍රණාමය!

ලබන වසරේ නැවත හමුවෙමු!
