Allan Webb Adventure

A THIRST TO "TASTE THE ADVENTURE"

 AWA Sponsorship Proposal 2009

The AWA is a non-alcoholic event conceived by the students of Allan Webb Hall for the students and staff of Rhodes University, and the Grahamstown community. The absence of an event that appeals to the adventurous nature of the Rhodes student has inspired the creation of the Allan Webb Adventure (AWA). The AWA offers the opportunity for a team of spirited individuals to show off their true potential as a combined unit. Working together in a team is essential to our everyday survival in a competitive environment. The AWA is aimed at extracting the raw instinct for creation, leadership and altruism hidden within each one of us. When these hidden talents are exposed and brought together, human nature can be seen at its best.

AWA 2009

The Allan Webb Adventure is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 19th September in the Botanical Gardens starting off at 08h20 and finishing by 15h00. The competitors circuit has two stop points respectively at Debonairs - corner of Somerset and Prince Alfred Street and at Pick’ n Pay inside the Pepper Groove Mall.

AWA Prize-Giving Ceremony

The official prize-giving ceremony starts at 13h45 and will take place at the Botanical Gardens.

WHAT DOES THE AWA INVOLVE?

It must be made clear that the AWA is not another Founder's Challenge. It is a wholly unique event that is designed to be great fun for all who get involved in and around it. The AWA will consist of two events, a main event and a more relaxed side event. There is a R200 entrance fee per team for main events and R25 per team for the side event - which are open for the public.

A TASTE FOR ADVENTURE

Saturday 19th September, 2009 marks the seventh Allan Webb Adventure (AWA). In 2003 this unique outdoor event was born from the hearts and minds of creative students in Allan Webb Hall. The birth of the AWA was inspired by the lack of local activities that appeal to the adventurous nature of the ordinary person. The AWA aims to bring intelligent, like-minded individuals together in teams to work towards a common goal “TO BREAK BARRIERS”. The AWA breaks barriers of gender, race, differing historical events and life experiences.

5 BODIES, 5 MINDS, 5 TASKS

Teams made up of five spirited individuals must complete five different tasks, under difficult circumstances, over challenging terrain. The five tasks are physically and mentally challenging, thus testing the dynamics of leadership, teamwork and innovation. The best will embody the finest of these attributes and will have successfully proved their ability to work and endure as a team.
