- Brief History -
was formed on the Wednesday of Green Week XI, August 1998, by a select
group of piss-pots socialising on the balcony of the uni bar. At this
stage the balcony had only a metal railing and no roof, thereby making
it much more open to the uni lawn. We had prime seating for watching the
billy-cart cart racing going on below us, and made sure everyone on the
lawn knew where we were. It was at about this stage that several more
beers were purchased, and in return for the outrageous fun that it supplied,
a toast was offered "To Beer", at which all raised their glasses
in pride and toasted "TO BEER".
"To Beer" continued on throughout the year, but it was not until Commerce Camp '99 that Muzz and Joneseeey decided to form "To Beer" into a club. Meetings were held in various places around camp, always taking detailed minutes as any club should. These also proved invaluable in recounting what actually happened on the camp.
Upon returning back to the uni bar, recruiting began in earnest, attracting almost 100 members. Membership cards were produced, and the promise of t-shirts came to fruition several months later, which are now considered priceless. A constitution and commandments were formed, representing the true foundation of the club's beliefs.
Many functions were organised during the year, all with outstanding success. Whether it was BBQs, porn & poker nights or the outrageous Classy Beer Day, a blast was had by all involved.
However, this all culminated in Green Week XII 1999, when "To Beer" was a force to be reckoned with. A dedicated team of 10-20 hardcore drinkers were extremely competitive, beating teams with several hundred members to draw from. The competitors were supported by a team of cheerleaders and pit-girls, who worked well in distracting our opposition. "To Beer" finished 2nd, in what can only be described as an awesome debut effort.
"To Beer" returned in 2000 with a hell of a lot of potential, and has so far recruited over 500 members. This promises to be another year full of crazy functions and debauchery, and there is only one position we are aiming to finish in Green Week XIII.
about drinking every day and the negative effects it must be having on you?
BAH! Read the 'To Beer' theory of Natural Selection.
