Tournament Misbehavior

Tournament Misbehavior

The Resident of the Otago Student Association has written to the other Student Presidents pointing out unfortunate incidents that occurred at Tournament last Easter. For instance:

"The Otago flatting community enjoys entertaining. It is however, unreasonable that guests should arrive quite uninvited and unknown at a flat where no party has been envisaged, and where their continuing presence is undesired. It will be realised that such a situation can be of the utmost embarrassment to our female students in particular, whose only recourse is to the police, a course which for obvious reasons they are loath to take at Easter Tournament."

It was further complained that guests would stay all night at parties, that they did not obey Rules of Residence when billetted in residential halls, did not behave properly at private billets, and damaged equipment.

It is feared that such actions will affect the efficient running of Tournaments and the co-operation of the public.
