The adventures of 'Gym' Cassidy and the 'Dance-room' Kid

The adventures of 'Gym' Cassidy and the 'Dance-room' Kid.

Adventures of our intrepid duo in the free time of the University.

'Gym' and 'Dance-room' fresh from their trip to Montreal report that neither of them won medals, in fact neither of them got anywhere at the games because in the true tradition of Gym-users they were only doing it for fun, which doesn't get you anywhere at the Olympics. However they have lots of new skills picked up from watching some fo the Games events. After watching both the volleyball and basketball they are anxious to impart their new-found knowledge in the social atmosphere of intra-mural volleyball (Tuesday 12-1) and basketball (Thursday 12-1.30). So if you would like to just enjoy a lighthearted game of either of these then come to the Gym.

After it's first couple of months the weight-room exercycle has done 1500km and demand is growing. 'Dance-room' managed to ride at 24mph from the Gym to Auckland and still didn't get up the Gym stairs.

So what's new at Gym? Well absolutely nothing...it's the same old boring Badminton for beginners (Tuesday 10-11 Friday 10-11) and Badminton for intermediates (Friday 11-12—and Acrobatics for anyone who wants to have a go on Tuesday 2-3, oh yes; those women's fitness classes (Tuesday 1-2 and Thursday 12-1) and that Mixed Fitness class on Thursday from 5-6 getting fit in a social setting, Yoga (Tuesday 12-1 and Thursday 1-2) and those boring old 'learn to ski' classes well you'd better come to the Gym to find out about those. There's a few more things as well but it's all the same.

Until next term of course when the whole timetable changes so watch this space, and hear how 'Gym' and 'Dance-room' try to become NZ Junior weight-lifting champions.
