Vic was at a big disadvantage here, for the rowing team had only been formed three weeks before Tournament and so was not in the best of conditions for competition. Because the various teams had not practiced together very much, their performance suffered at Dunedin, where they came up against some very fit and experienced opposition. However, the ladies novice fours must be congratulated for their third placing in the Ladies 1000m. invitation Fours!
In scoring its victory at Easter Tournament, Otago won in tennis, water polo, swimming, and yachting, and gained a third placing in the cricket, to give it another easy shield win. Canterbury retained their second placing by finishing runners-up to Otago in the tennis and swimming, and third in the water polo. Vic did creditibly to win the cricket and take second placings in the water polo and yachting, and thence finish third, our best effort for some time.
The Vic contingent wish to thank Otago for making the Tournament such a success, and for giving us such a good time.
