Detour Island Cove Adventure

The 30 Blogventurers with Gilbert Remulla

Thirty Blogventurers were gathered by last Thursday, March 5, 2009, (I included) to enjoy a whole day of adrenaline pumping adventure at  the 36 hectares of Island Cove in Cavite.My team (Red) emerged as the 3rd placer out of 6 groups and the special award for the videoke challenge in the Island Song (one of the entertainment facilities in the resort) because of the 99 points I got from singing I Will Survive!

The race began 1:30pm just after lunch and the tour around the Island Cove where we explored the many great facilities visitors can enjoy.
