Blues Dinner

Blues Dinner

On Friday 2nd October, Sports Committee will be holding their Annual Blues Dinner at the Student Union Building. The purpose of this function is to present the 1970 Sports Blues and also to award the 1970 Sportsman of the Year trophy. It is expected that this years function will be a particularly worthwhile occasion with an imposing and most interesting list of after-dinner speakers complementing a good menu and wine list. This year we have been lucky to obtain Mr Glyn Tucker, former keeper of the Stud Book and a sporting personality involved in a number of sporting activities, who is well-versed and adept at the art of after-dinner speaking; it is expected that Mr Caesar Cohen, well-known patron of all sport and President of the Wellington Cricket Association will speak and award the trophy. Accompanying these two speakers it is hoped that perhaps Gerald Kember will be able to relate some of his experiences on the South African tour or Bob Scott, a leader of a tour party can tell of his trip.

The contestants for the Sportsman of the Year include six sport men prominent on the national scene, Victoria being very fortunate in having so many national representatives. These are Richard Agnew, 1969-70 NZ Indoor Basketball representative, John Armstrong, 2nd in NZ Ski Championships 1970, George Stratigopolous, former NZ fencing champion. Rod Barltrop, reserve for the NZ Golf team which competes in the World Championships, Phil Kear, member of the NZ Pan-Pacific Games team, as a 400 metres runner and last but not least, Mark Gazley, who represented NZ in diving at Edinburgh in the Commonwealth Games.
