Now It's Our Turn

Now It's Our Turn

Winter is icumen in
Lewd sing Victoria,
Bloweth foam and smoketh weed
There's goin' to be a Tournament.

(Middle English Air)

This year for the first time a full scale Winter Tournament is going to be held at VUC. Besides those actually competing in the various sports there are many activities such as elbow bending, gargling, durbing and shaking the odd pot, which can be enjoyed and participated in by the intelligentsia.

However, on August 26, representatives of the various Colleges will be gathering here to participate in the following sports: Men's and Women's Hockey, Fencing, Soccer, Men's Basketball, Harriers, Miniature Rifle Shooting, Table Tennis, Debating, Drama and for the NZUSA Conference.

As you can see, a great number of billets will be required (about 400 in all), and members of sports clubs and others are urged to assist in billeting the representatives of the other Colleges. So get cracking! It's up to you to ensure that this part of Tournament is a success.

Tentative social functions for Tournament are: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, Dances; Sunday, Pictures; and on Monday, Tournament Ball.
