Members of the Money Market Association of the Philippines (MART) channeled their innate competitive drive last Thursday, October 3, 2013, as they participated in MART’s first ever quiz night in Aracama at the Fort Strip. Players relied on teamwork, skill, and most importantly, their potent 4G LTE connections to Google their way to triumph through three exciting rounds that included a wide range of categories from music to cartoon characters and logos. Creativity was also a key in winning the game as organizers made it difficult during the last round to simply search for answers in Google. They flashed images and played music as trivia questions in quick succession to keep teams on their toes. 12 teams were accepted by the MART Fellowship Committee headed by Mr. Noel S. Malabag (HSBC) as official contestants with only 7 teams advancing to the second round while 4 teams made it to the final round. When the dust settled, RCBC team emerged victorious, bagging the grand prize of P50, 000 with the team of HSBC a close second. More winners emerged throughout the night as 6 iPad Mini’s were raffled throughout the event courtesy of MART’s generous sponsors namely Bank of the Philippine Islands, Bloomberg, First Metro Investment Corp., Ford Philippines, Amstel, GFI, ICAP, Tradition, and Tullet Prebon.
