Game Mechanics:

The participants from different regions will be in groups of four (4) members each.  All groups will be gathered in the starting area where they will be recognized, cheer for themselves, and given instructions of the race. 

Each group will be required to perform a pre-game chant.

When the race starts, each group will be given the first clue to the first  station.  The clue will be a riddle/trivia based on the unique areas of Seven Seas Waterpark which they can solve with the help of the Seven Seas map posted in the premises. Examples are:

  1. Riptide Reef
  2. Mighty Maur River
  3. Captain Kidd’s Hideout
  4. Pira Chute
  5. Cyclone
  6. Plank Drop
  7. Bucaneer
  8. Captain Oliver’s Cafe
  9. Ahoy Fastfood

Sample Clues:

  • Clue Number 1: “My first name is Chips, and my last name is ________. This is the place where your seafood is found.”
    • Answer: Ahoy Fastfood
  • Clue Number 2: “I am not a mouse. I am a friend of Moana. I am a body of water.”
    • Answer: Mighty Maui River


The participants will figure out the clue and proceed to the first station where they will either be quizzed, or asked to do a challenge, before they can get the clue to the next station. 


This goes on for a total of four (4) stations until the last station will give them the last clue to where they will race and whoever gets there will be the winner of the Amazing Race.

Dear Friends

The call of MINDANAO beckons as we host the 2023 POGS Midyear Convention here in Cagayan de Oro. It is with enthusiasm and gladness in our hearts that we warmly welcome you to this celebration of women empowerment.

Team  MYC POGS 10 has been unceasingly working to ensure a convention that showcases Mindanao culture at its best, through the captivating and exciting social events, and at the same time, offering a conglomerate of topics and issues that will stimulate discussion of the full spectrum of the physical, social, and environmental factors that a woman  goes through in her journey from adolescence to her golden years.

Time and again, POGS 10 has faced challenges and difficulties even embarking on the preparation of a midyear convention on two occasions, which were derailed by the Marawi siege and the Pandemic. Yet true grit and resiliency, as well as with the protection, guidance, and grace from God, we are now in the throes of a face to face convention

So come and be with us! Enjoy the many attractions of the City of Golden Friendship and Northern Mindanao, and be ready to break boundaries and unite diverse cultures through a gathering that goes beyond the medical frontier. 

See you at the 2023 POGS MYC!  See you in Cagayan de Oro!
