To Our Visitors

To Our Visitors

Wellington, they say, is inhospitable. The weather is always shocking. The city is not University minded. There is nothing to do, nowhere to go. This Easter will convince you that in spite of all this, Wellington is not the worst place to hold a Tournament. You will find that VUC can put on a rendezvous that will leave you staggering, that the harbour is occasionally smooth enough for rowing, that VUC will give you a good run for your money in every sport, and not the least important, there is a large selection of excellent pubs. We have not done all we would have liked to because the difficulties of running a full-scale Tournament in wartime Wellington are immense. The smallest concession has to be wormed out of some complacent official, and as the city now houses a greatly increased population, billeting has been a major hurdle. However, all arrangements have now been completed, and the success or failure of the enterprise now depends only on the weather, the spirit of the competitors, and the benevolent interest of the general public.
