Pub Crawls are undoubtedly the most popular university club social events. It’s a great way to meet people and can be a profitable fundraiser for clubs. Keep in mind that your club insurance does not cover pub crawls , and taking part is at the students' own risk.
Set a Date
When planning your pub crawl, make sure to leave plenty of time to sell your shirts before you have to place your order. Two months is a good amount of time to fully plan a pub crawl and the more time you have, the more organised it will be.
When setting the event date, keep in mind the students that you are catering for. Try to ensure that the date is not during holidays or during the exam period etc. Pub crawls are ideally held on the Friday night of weeks 1 to 6 of SP2 or SP5.
Before locking in a date, you will need to contact the venues that you wish to attend to ensure that they are happy to facilitate your group at the time that you would like and find out what drink specials are available. Undoubtedly, Rundle Street is the most popular strip to hold your pub crawl, but Hindley Street and O’Connell Street are also popular.
Now to the fun part – deciding on a theme and designing the t-shirt. Once you have a design in mind for your t-shirt, you should contact a t-shirt company. We have a relationship with AESS who provides USASA clubs with a discount for some of their products. You can learn more about them HERE.
You can sell your t-shirts through our Online Store. Make sure to end sales with ample time to place your t-shirt order, receive them and distribute them to your customers. You can learn how to add a product to the Online Store HERE.
You may choose to distribute t-shirts however you like, but if you would like our Campus Counters to help with this, you can email us to ask at USASA.Clubs@unisa.edu.au.
Finally, remember to have fun and be safe!
