Hey (outdoor) party people!
It's time for the first, and arguably best, trip of the semester- BUSHBALL (27th-29th). This legend of a trip has been going since 1974 and involves a relatively cruisy walk into Mt Aspiring Hut, where there will be a 3 course feast followed by an unforgettable* night of dancing and partying in the magical NZ wilderness.

This year the theme is ~ Mt Olympus (Greek Gods & Goddesses) ~. So get those creative juices flowing, embrace your inner Zeus/Aphrodite/Hades and dress to IMPRESS because there will be prizes. And maybe a cute someone you're interested in.
If this sounds like an ideal way to spend your weekend then (a) we'll get along, and (b) you MUST attend the pre-meet on Tuesday 24th at 7PM in BURNS 2 LECTURE THEATRE. The trip will cost $90 and you must bring this to the premeet as we take payment on the night - this covers transport, hut fees, 2x dinners, breakfast, alcohol etc.
At the pre-meet we'll fill you in on how the weekend will run, what you need to bring etc etc. In the meantime here is a brief overview of the weekend:
Leave Dunedin on Friday after 5pm
Dinner at the Beaumont pub
Camp at Raspberry flats
Walk into Mt Aspiring Hut (a few cheeky festivities along the way)
Optional walk up the valley in the afternoon
Worm wrestling competition
Dinner and dance partayyy
Sunday walk out and drive home
Finally if you know anyone who would love to come but are not a member of OUTC, they MUST sign up at the Club meeting (Tuesday, 5-6pm, OUSA building, Albany St) prior to the pre-meet at 7pm in order to sign up for this trip.
On a side note there is also a club gear buy night at Bivouac on Thursday 26th, 6-8pm with a 20% discount. Looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday!
Much love from your social managers of mischief,
Jackie & Alex
