[unclear: ister] Tournament

[unclear: r] many hassles about transport and [unclear: ute] cancellations, our Easter [unclear: Tournament] team got to Auckland. Although [unclear: id] won the tournament, Victoria [unclear: ed] competently in many events; second places in the snooker and [unclear: g]. The shooting was of a very high [unclear: d] compared with past tournaments, [unclear: tough] they measured up to the [unclear: ams] on the range, it was not poss-[unclear: Vic] to regain the shooting-drinking [unclear: id] luck Peter Callinicos).

In other sports, Victoria was successful at a minor level, but this was not enough to gain us substantial points.

The all important Drinking Horn was held on Sunday night by a somewhat disorganised Auckland student. But Victoria managed to compete extremely well compared to last year, winning the Boatrace event against Canterbury. In the individual events, Allan Syrupp drank his way to a well deserved second place. Another individual, who has asked to have his name suppressed, gained second place in the open jug in a time of 3.93 seconds.

One disappointment of the tournament was that the cricket was cancelled, due to bad weather. This gave the cricket boys far too much time and as the week progressed things tended to get broken.

Finally my congratulations go to all those members of the Victoria team who in one way or another managed to let Auckland know that the capital city was competing.
