The Riviera Group and its contractors put aside business for a day to compete in tug-of-war, eggplant rolling, volleyball and other games as the real estate developer hosted its first-ever Sports Day.
Riviera Group chief Winston Gale and his wife Sukanya, the company’s project manager, hosted the Aug 22 event, welcoming the various companies and construction firms that do business with Riviera throughout the year.
Riviera organized the Sports Day to strengthen friendships, have workers from all levels participate in joint activities and encourage exercise.
Twenty teams participated, including squads led by both Winston and Sukanya, with staffers from various construction companies and representatives of partner companies taking part.
Events included women’s volleyball, a 100-meter race, 4×100-meter relay, hands-free eating, tug-of-war, sack races, eggplant rolling, football and cheerleading.
Winning teams took home 2,000 baht while runners up got 1,000 baht each.
Five participating contractors were split into men’s and women’s teams, dubbed “Hot Daddy” and “Sexy Mom”. Contractors were JWS, Ideal Design, Texcawall Siamese Ecolite, TRW Teerawat Meepol and Pan Ceiling.
The highlight of the event was the cheerleading competition between Winston’s Team R1 and Sukanya’s Team R2.
