PCS-STC: Kahanga-hangang Takbuhan sa Katagalugan 2010
May 20, 2010 - Tagaytay Highlands
KAHANGA-HANGA TALAGA!: The participants representing the various institutions and chapters.
For the first time in the history of the Southern Tagalog Chapter, the PCS Midyear convention was held in the picturesque city of Tagaytay last May 20-22, 2010 at the Taal Vista Hotel. Many interesting and pleasurable activities for the delegates and their families coming from all over the country was prepared and one of the main events is the Amazing Race which was participated in by the PCS fellows and residents in training. Like the original race, two-member teams representing the various chapters and institutions with training programs competed around the hilly tracks of the Tagaytay Highlands.

PHAREX Healthcorp. was again tapped as the sole sponsor for this sport activity after the success of the very 1st PCS Amazing Race in 2009 which was Lumba sa CDO . This year’s Amazing Race theme is: " PCS-STC: Kahanga-hangang Takbuhan sa Katagalugan 2010”, consistent with this year’s host Chapter’s dialect which is Tagalog. This time, the games were tougher with more twists from “fear factor” challenges.
FISHING'S NEVER BEEN THIS FRUSTRATING: Some of the participants try to lure in a catch, did they get one?
