Never slow to sense money in the air, Phil Sowman and Gerard Winter then presented a humble petition for two one way fares to Christchurch. It goes like this, you see. UCSA has invited Vic to send two representatives to their chunder mile. Perhaps justifiably, Phil and Gerard felt they would be our best representatives at this hallowed occasion. While no-one at the meeting had any objection to the tickets being one way, it was wondered why we had to pay for then After all, the sports council has quite a large budget, and Phil has one or two contacts there.

In a cunning flanking move, Phil and Gerard (hereafter referred to as P and G) explained that this was a wonderful opportunity to further our cultural heritage, and provide us with a chance to broaden our outlook and gain an understanding of our fellow students in the provinces. "Fie", "Boo" and "Hiss" screamed the masses. "You bounders" exclaimed P and G, "We'll get you back". And so they did. It's like this, you see.
