In 2012, the competition for the Inter-Hall Arts Shield has been fierce. The year started with arguably the shield’s most exciting event: chess, hosted by a gracious Johns. From the beginning of the competition, it was clear that Fenner was unbeatable, and so to the victor went the spoils.
Every college was prepared to claw their way back into the race in the year’s second event, trivia. Griffin Hall both organised and won this event, with a spectacular effort from all other colleges.
After a much-needed semester break, the beginning of term two saw the biggest, brightest and best event of the year. Henry Ladd, Monique Langley-Freeman and Kate Reardon are to thank for the phenomenal night at Bruce Hall, with extended courtesy to Bruce Hall for allowing us to stamp on their grounds for yet another year. In a close and entertaining race, Burgmann was the night’s winner.
Debating came next, organized by UniLodge, featuring a series of intellectual battles rivaling the war between Edison and Tesla. With a heated grand final between B&G and Burgmann, Burgmann managed to get across the line.
It has been a hectic year of arts so far, but some of the best events are yet to come! In the next fortnight, look forward to some poetry slamming and inter-hall talent of every variety. Until then, you can’t have a fart without some art. See you at the arts events!
