After partying, HiMolde freshmen got to know more about their buddies’ talents and characteristics in Amazing Race on Saturday afternoon.

The centre of Molde was crowding than ever before, because of neon T-shirts. The Neon-ers had to pass through and play games at ten destinations in the city. The games sound simple, but they require high team spirit.
The funniest game was «Drink glasses» in which each player and their friends could see how drunk they are. An artificial feeling, but real laughs.
Amazing Race also witnessed a high level of competition between the buddy groups to achieve the shortest time to complete all missions. The Opening Week organising team could reveal that there was a one-hour difference between the first runner and the last one. However, this will not result in plus or minus scores, and organisers were excited to count the points and see which group was the winner.
The team spirit and excitement in Amazing Race this year were not only from participants but even from organisers. This event is a corporation of all clubs at HiMolde.
However, it could be seen that some buddy groups truly connected and broke the ice. Some were still shy to show off. This requires a little bit more efforts from «fadder».
