On Day Two there was a flower arrangement contest with many of the hosts displaying skills they had not realized they possessed.

Day Three was marked by a hand sewing, tacking and button stitching contest.

A morning tea, certificate presentation and cutting of a specially baked cake followed the three-day contest with Blue and Red teams being named the ultimate winnerS and taking home their prizes of a bag of chicken and a case of beer respectively.

Outrigger Fiji Resort General Manager Peter Hopgood said that housekeepers were the heart and soul of any resort and that he was blessed to have the best housekeeping team possible.
