Sports and the Easter Tournament

Well that time of year is coming up again - the best organised, combined games and piss-up period known as Easter Tournament. This time its at Otago University in the far South, and to get there, we've booked a whole swag of room on the the Rangatira. Survivors of that trip will be conveyed speedily to Dunedin, where the fun begins.

Sports expected to compete include: cricket, rowing, volleyball, tennis, rifle shooting, athletics, snooker, yachting, and perhaps such oddities as surf riding and spear fishing.

Anyone who's been will tell you - the atmosphere for the whole thing is fantastic. The sportspersons perform unparalleled feats, by competing ferociously at their chosen sports, then going on to incredible heroics at the amazing piss ups.

Theoretically these culminate in the Tournament Ball, but for many a true player the end comes with the holding of the fabled Drinking Horn.

Teams, in training for months have been known to fall down and refuse further refreshment, and grown men to pale and sicken at the sight of another jug!

If you can knock them back yourself joing the Vic team - the travels cheap, and the piss is free! If you want to come, we want you, and we've got room for lots more Join a club that appeals to you, or just come and watch! If you want, form a Supporters Club!

For whatever reason you come, we can promise you the best Easter you've ever had. So join up: put your name down for one of these clubs.

They'll be keen to have you. Don't worry about a thing. You don't have to win a Blue - just participate. See you on the boat.

— Peter C. Thrush,

Sports Officer.
