Drinking Horn

Drinking Horn

Champagne glass drawing

This important part of Winter Tournament was held in the Globe Hotel. Victoria showed that though they could only come second in most other events, this was something they could excel in. Victoria won the horn, defeating Auckland, who had the advantage of being used to the local brew, in the final. Outstanding in the Vic. team was Kent Beard, who, drinking last, gave his opponent a third of a glass start and beat him. Beard was also the fastest individual drinker; he did 1.3, and thoroughly deserved his Blue. In a few years' time, if he continues to improve, he may well break the four-minute mile of drinking, the one second draught. (If you don't think 1.3 seconds is fast, try pouring a glass out at that speed.)

The victorious Victoria drinkers were Beard, J. Martin. R. Martyn. J. Fernyhaugfi. G. Wiggs and G. Aitken.
