The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review October, 1920
As the Executive abandoned its original intention cf having a moonlight harbour excursion, an impromptu picnic was hastily arranged by some enthusiastic students.
The night was dark and promised to be stormy, but the trip was not a rough one. A considerable number of students and visitors travelled to Day Bay on an early boat and spent the time dancing in the pavilion. Light supper was eaten in groups on the beach, which was quite sheltered from the heavy wind. The return journey was considerably enlivened by chorus singing from a large group in the bow of the boat. It was altogether a very jolly and successful evening's entertainment.
