Change-Over Keg - Schoolboys, Schoolgirls
With the newly elected VetSoc committee in place, we thought “What could be a great way to celebrate?” Then the idea came…Why not get the entire Vet Faculty smashed with a Change-Over Keg (true story almost!!) An epic brainstorm for a theme took place in Lab A, and it was agreed. The theme would be ‘Schoolboys, Schoolgirls’. 25 minutes of the ruminant prac well spent!
And so it began. The race to make this the best-est Change-Over Keg ever was on. Amazing fliers to the left, lecture bashing to the right. It was impossible to escape the awesomeness that this keg would behold. Then Boom! Friday 6th June, it struck 6pm on the rocket clock, and it was go time. The kegs and punch began to rattle as a horde of alcohol-thirsty people rampaged down the Uni streets. It wasn’t long before a mighty queue of 5 people deep was waiting at the ticket benches. It was chaos. The queue of 5 multiplied into 200 in a matter of 3 hours. Oh what a beautiful sight it was to see, Vets drinking with Vets, Vets drinking with AVBS, Vets drinking with staff, Vets drinking with total randoms. It was beauty at its finest, and as Millers so elegantly explains, “It was a sick ass party…Hi-5!!”
Scarves, Beanies, Boots and Booze!
After a difficult two weeks to start the semester, VetSoc decided to host a welcome back event so that everyone could catch up on each other’s adventures in the mid-year break. After much deliberation the theme was decided to be what winter is really about…. Scarves, Beanies, Boots and last but not least, the Beer!
The arrival of a cold weather front on Friday afternoon saved the theme from being totally inappropriate and those who attended (almost 150 brave souls!) were welcomed with snow cones (with optional alcohol), imported snow mountain punch from the highest point in Canada and frosty keg beer. The night was thought to be an all-round joyous occasion, with VetSoc social representative and patriotic Canadian citizen Matt Walker claiming “Twas the best night of my life ey!”.
