With the successful conclusion of Project Knot phase 1, a sequel of phase 2 was in high demand by our fellow participants. The purpose behind launching the second phase of the Knot was to recognize the hidden talent of our members. The fresh new set of participants, we had on board for phase 2 provoked even more enthusiasm and excitement to foster and build new friendships through a series of epic team bonding challenges. The key focus of this project was about developing one’s presentation skills and brainstorming new ideas for one of our community service projects Dura Atha Ape Paasala.
Initially, we allocated members into 3 groups and appointed a mentor to lead all the members of their respective groups, we provided some time for each team to break the ice with each other and elect a team leader which they prefer the purpose of this was that instead of a leader being handpicked by the organizing committee we wanted the team to be given chance to rise to the occasion to seize this opportunity moreover the teams had to go to their creative side to create a logo and a team name. The co-operation between members was astounding and all three teams were very well prepared to deliver theirs despite their hectic schedules during this pandemic.
Knot – 2 was held on the 28th of October through the virtual platform “Zoom” and was live-streamed through the Club YouTube channel “RAC of Excellence”. PP Dilanka Kumarasinghe, IPP Sharker Shajahan, and Charter Board Member Dhanya Weerasinghe were the judges for the program. We had 30 plus members who came in to watch which team had dedicated themselves the most in coming up with innovative ideas and proposals, each team being well-rehearsed on their presentation had made it a nail-biting decision for our judges to announce a winning team. This event was a great opportunity for all current and prospective members to build contacts and fellowship with other members of our club. Though it took place through a virtual platform it never felt so because the teams did an amazing job though they were not together at that moment, each member knew what their part was and presented so well. It was amazing to see how these members had planned and executed their ideas, though they were not known to each other in the beginning in the end each team was a family. Even though we had to pick one winner all our participants enhanced their experience and certainly build their communication skills through this project. Team members answered all cross-questions asked by the judges brilliantly as they were well prepared to do so. We were able to see the talents of our members in many ways like being forward and talking on behalf of their team, creativity in designing the presentation, editing skills, knowledge on executing a project, etc. Therefore, we strongly believe that we have concluded the project “KNOT” on a high note.
