Tournament Delegate's Message

Three beer mugs full of beer

To all who have been selected to represent Victoria at Auckland this Easter, I wish good fortune. We look to you to emulate the fine performance of our team at last Winter Tournament when Victoria headed the other five colleges by a convincing 20-point margin.

For many of you, attending your first University Tournament, this Easter will prove a new experience. You will have the opportunity of meeting and competing against students from all other colleges.

You will no doubt form lasting friendships with many of the people you meet, particularly in connection with your own sport. Take advantage of the entertainments provided by the host college; there will be dances, a scenic tour, the fabulous Drinking Horn, and of course, Tournament Ball, which is the social highlight of the whole show.

To those old campaigners who will be looking forward to renewing acquaintances with former rivals, I offer only one word of advice. Remember you are the backbone of your respective teams, and make sure you give your younger team-mates the lead they expect.

Many of you will be billeted by obliging folk without whose interest no tournament could be staged. Be considerate towards them so that the pleasure of your visit will be mutual.

I know you will give of your best in the sports arena and no one can do more than that. May the keynote of your Auckland visit be one of happiness and good fellowship.

Finally, I would like to thank Miss Pamela Beck sincerely for her help and the work she has done as Junior Delegate.

B. R. Boon

Senior Delegate.
