Rotaract Rarotonga’s The Great Easter Eggs-capade held on Saturday was hailed a success despite less than the anticipated number of teams taking part in the event.

Three teams took part in the event which promised team bonding and exciting challenges.

Team Undertakers, Team Hulagans and Team Pisioooo took on the challenge, embarking on a journey from Terevete Park to the Ports Authority area, searching for clues hidden at various locations along the route.

The hunt began with a riddle challenge. Teams had to crack the code to receive their first location’s clue. Next, they embarked on a creative task: crafting a bunny entirely out of newspaper, which they had to carry with them to the finish line. The third challenge, called “trust me”, required teams to go through an obstacle course in a queue, with all members except the leader blindfolded. They then took part in the hunger challenge, where a member per team had to finish a meal at Palace Takeaway before heading to the dance sequence challenge and then another challenge leading to the finish line at Business Trade Investment Board (BTIB).

Team Undertakers, a last-minute addition to the event, were the first to finish the challenge. They received $500 cash and other prizes, including gift vouchers and accessories. Team Hulagans finished second place and received $300 plus gift vouchers and accessories. Team Pisioooo came in third place, receiving $200 along with gift vouchers and accessories. Additionally, Team Pisioooo won the best dressed and best bunny prizes, while the team spirit prize went to Hulagans.

Rotaract Rarotonga president Toru Nooroa thanked the teams that took part in The Great Easter Eggs-capade for their participation and contribution to their cause.

Funds raised from The Great Easter Eggs-capade will go towards two main initiatives. Part of the proceeds will support sending a Rotaract Rarotonga representative to an international meeting in Fiji this weekend. The remaining funds will contribute to various community projects undertaken by Rotaract throughout the year, both on Rarotonga and the Pa Enua islands.

“I like to take this time to thank all my executive members, without them this event would not have been possible, they all pulled it together and made it more fun and exciting.  And also, to the three teams that took part in our little event, thank you very much for your support,” Nooroa said.

Nooroa also thanked the sponsors for their cash and in-kind support. The sponsors included Cook Islands Motor Centre, ANZ Bank, Bank of the Cook Islands (BCI), Bank of the South Pacific (BSP), The Edgewater Resort and Spa, CITC, Vodafone Cook Islands, Island Craft and The Taro Patch Crew.

“We would like to thank our sponsors for their continuous support and we look forward to their continued partnership. Their support is invaluable in allowing us to continue our work in the community.”

Rotaract Rarotonga will be helping prepare and serve breakfast to our veterans and their families on the Anzac Day on April 25 and is asking interested volunteers to contact them at to register to volunteer.
