It’s already nearly time for our second Beach Volleyball competition – this Semester is just flying by. Our first one was a great success in April and at the end of May the defeated semi finalists will be trying to get the Trophy back. We are lucky enough to have had the Red Bull team volunteering to come onto the complex for some of the events that we hold here and last month they brought the DJ truck with them, as well as the Red Bull Angels (always popular.) The Red Frog team helped us with the BBQ too so we had lots of extra people on board – let’s hope the second comp is as popular. Photos of the winner will be on here after the event.
Despite the rain, the promise of free food encouraged the students to brave the possible downpour. Thankfully the rain stayed away and the free food was a hit. Beefburgers and veggie burgers were cooked by the management and the Red Frogs team. The Red Bull crew turned up and gave a way free Red Bull to everyone. The DJ even managed to set up somewhere dry and entertained the crowds. Thanks again to everyone that got involved and game out to play. Next event – the Beach Volleyball competition .
The rain may have decided to crash the party but that didn’t stop O week from happening at Varsity Apartments. Marathon Monday, Toga Tuesday, Wine Wednesday, “why are you wearing that” Thursday to name a few of the themed events going on. Buses from the Helm nightclub came every night to pick up those enjoying the parties at the nightclub and returned everyone safely home. The Red Bull angels came in with free Red Bull and of course, the wonderful Red Frogs were on hand most days with pancakes. One day of sunshine had everyone enjoying the pools but then back to the rainy days. Now it’s time to settle in and start looking at those textbooks. Next events scheduled is the Welcome BBQ on 8th March from 6pm and of course, the ever famous Beach Volleyball Competition, Saturday 24th March from 10am. Bring it on
It’s a few weeks until O Week so to help the new students fit in on the complex we had a little get together by the Rec Pool this week. We invited the Red Frogs team to come along and made pancakes, berries and ice cream for any hungry students. The Red Frogs have a weekly presence on the complex and it was great to see lots of students mingling and making friends. Only 2 weeks until O week …
We are all getting excited here at Varsity for Sem 1, 2018 to begin. There are still quite a few students on the complex but it is very quiet without all of you. Hurry up and get signed up. Here’s a taster of life here on the complex – don’t miss out.
Last Semester finished with lots of goodbyes, address swapping and tears. Christmas and New Year went by in a flash and suddenly here we are getting ready for Semester 1, 2018. Provisional dates have already been picked for the Welcome BBQ and the first Beach Volleyball competition. Most of the apartments have been newly painted and we can’t wait to see who arrives this year.
We’ve already completed the first Beach Volleyball competition of the Semester. The students had so much fun that we have promised another one at the end of this month. The last competition day was perfect weather and there were lots of teams in fancy dress this time. The Red Frogs team came in to help with the BBQ – burgers/veggie burgers and salad in bread rolls kept the teams fueled for the grueling rounds. The winning team won t shirts, vouchers and of course, the chance to hold the Beach Volleyball Trophy. Watch this space for news of the next one.
This semester’s Beach Volleyball competition was a blast. The weather was beautiful even though storms were forecasted for later. Lots of teams got dressed up in fancy dress and there were some really energetic games. The Red Frogs came to help with the BBQ and served up beef burgers, veggie burgers and sausages. What a great day. The winning team was made up of some of our long term tenants; they have obviously had the most time practising 🙂
