Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. [Volume 39, Issue 8. April 1976]

Friday 30 April

Friday 30 April

1.30pm Raft Race: we are going to combine typical student shabbiness and degeneracy with seamanship. We are not hijacking the Rangatira but rather we are taking to the water of Oriental Bay in rafts, bathtubs, water-beds or anything that is homemade and floats.
So get your flat, drinking school, or hostel mates together and build a raft. Rafts can be built of either 44 gal drums or tyre tubes. Drums are available for $1 each from Grant Paints at the bottom of Ngauranga Groge.
Competitors should note that teargas, petrol bombs, guns, chains etc are a no-no.
The Mayor, Micheal Fowler is the official starter and judge of the best novelty entry.
Prizes: 1st 10 dozen beer
2nd 4 dozen beer
4 best novelty raft - 4 dozen beer
First woman's crew home gets 2 dozen

(what paternalistic crap - I think women should boycott this event - Typesetter)

Each entry receives 1 dozen.

Afterwards there will be liquid refreshments at 15 or so establishments between Oriental Bay and the University.

8.00pm Sports Council Blues Dinner - tickets from Studass Office.
