Tournament — The Chance of a Lifetime
The Chance of a Lifetime
The more observant members of the College may have noticed that certain decorations which have rested for the past year in the vestibule, are missing from the glass case. Those ornaments, some of which were paying a visit overdue to the extent of some eight years, were the trophies won by our successful representation at Auckland last Easter.
There is one disturbing feature at present, however. This College has always had the finest reputation for the excellence of their supporters in numbers and enthusiasm. V.U.C. hakas have always been loudest and best and V.U.C. verve has often added life to functions which, have been threatened with failure. Indeed, we have always supplied all that is brightest and best in Tournament, despite the fact that we frequently received disappointments as far as the results of the contests were concerned.
At present the list of supporters who intend to travel is woefully small and it betokens poor support at Easter. Remember, this is the best Tournament of them all. Southern hopitality is renowned. And if you wish to fill in a spare afternoon, you have only to ask some old-timer about the last Tournament held in Dunedin.
The fare is cheap and the chance one in a lifetime; so please supporters rally round. Dig deep into the old sock—it will be well worth it.
