Schoolies is a post high school tradition in Australia, where after it is finished, you travel to an exotic location and get ****ed up for a week.

Me and 8 of my mates are going to my Grandparents holiday house on the beach in a real nice part of the world. As it is my families house I have established some ground rules for a week of fun times:

1. Men do not Bitch. Penalty is a shot.

2. You break anything, I break you, plus you must cop a shot.

3. What's mine is yours and what's yours is mine. We are a family.Sharing is caring. If you don't want someone else to drink it, don't bring it. Exceptions can be applied for and will be granted on a case by case basis.

4. You pass out anywhere funny (not your bed/designated sleeping space), then you automatically consent to victimisation.

5. Cockblocking = 4 shots

6.My word is law, as this is my castle and I am king. Penalty is one shot

7. If it comes in a can, buy it in a can. If this rule is broken, each glass item must be consumed alongside one shot. Exceptions will be made for things that only come in glass ie: Cruisers, Rekorderlig etc but try to minimise this where possible. Glass is a bitch to get out of feet.

8. Spewing inside=Living outside. Plus a breakfast shot.

9. Disputes shall be settled by BEERPONG. One appeal match will be permitted, but after that, the decision is binding. If it is broken, the offender must cop a shot.

Last but not least, don't be a prick. No one likes that



So basically I was wondering if you guys had any other good suggestions as to ways to make the trip awesome, anything I haven't thought of etc.

So... beach week?

Also, who has the money to do this out of high school? And this is coming from someone who worked through high school

As it is my Granparents house, rent is $50 each for the week. It's not exactly a mansion, rather a late 70s/early 80s fibro beach hut type deal.

We will be living off of eggs, bacon, fish and chips, various pasta dishes baked pre-trip and transported in coolers, pancakes and tap water, so the food bill will not be crazy.

Everyone else will bring about $300 each for grog/unforseen expenses such as a shortage of grog, new table tennis balls. I dunno what your wages were like when you worked through high school or if you had some more serious circumstance that required your employment, but none of us do so $350ish is a very reasonable monetary total.


but seriously, any ideas/suggestions to make this time even more excellent?

That wording kinda came off as asinine, I apologize.

But yeah I worked to help out my family in high school/pay for my shit, so I didn't have much random money lying about. No offense at all to you or anyone that doesn't need to do that. It's kind of an embittered reaction because I was always surrounded by people who were more well off than myself and got to do things of this nature whenever they felt like it.

Really do apologize though, I didn't mean for it to come off like that and in no way do I mean offense to people who have/had those opportunities.


And not really, aside from drinking games should be incorporated into every aspect of everything.

Because your BAC isn't going to raise itself.

no offence, I tried to use my understanding internet tone in my above post, like I don't care everyone's situation is different etc etc and yeah that's all cool man.

But yeah, naturally drinking games of course.
We are doing one called "sit down" where you all sit down and smash through shitloads of grog and then everyone tries to stand up and the first guy to stagger to a predesignated spot wins hahaha

Oh that reminds me

If you go cheap then you'll regret it. Nothing feels worse than the day after loads of really cheap alcohol.

Medium-cheap is where it's at.

cumerous and contradictory = more punishments = more fun?

I like these rules. Just cause the punishment for everything is more alcohol.

You should make sodomy one of the penalties. Make it the punishment for something like sitting with your legs crossed too much like a lady.

That would be fun.

Do this. there is no better way to get drunk than to sing songs while getting drunk.
You'd be the praeses ('president'), leading the others: choosing the songs, appointing the tasks, but most importantly: dealing out punishments. The punishments can be dealt out for just about anything (for belching, not sitting up straight or just for talking while you're talking, to just giving a punishment because the guy in front of you 's got an ugly face.), and ofc punishments require drinking.
A stack of rules need to be applied, but once you've got the hang of it, it gets more fun everytime.

I didn't go to schoolies. I walked home from school on the day of my last exam (because I missed the bus), then went to work and university, and I haven't stopped since.

It was mainly because my friends were dicks, I don't drink and South Australia has no good beaches or anything to shack up at for a week.

This is a drinking game we play during the 'Tour de France'. It may be a little more expensive and requires different kinds of beverages, but by the end of the day, you'll feel more shitfaced than the guys who actually rode the Tour. Maybe you can apply this to a 'strayan sport? I've no idea what you guys do when you're not out to hunt crocodiles.

Cheers

Oh you should play this game I forgot what it's called but it's like categories or something and you go around the circle with a rhythm. If you drop the rhythm or you can't think of something to say you drink. Use categories like "types of bacteria"

Yeah this is pretty much our last hoorah as a group before dispersion across the nation for various employment opportunities and study pursuits.

Yeah, I have none of those three schoolies inhibitors. I just didn't invite the dicks.
Also, I'll be the first to admit this shit isn't for everyone. I honestly don't even know if it's for me haha but yeah some of my friends are staying at home, some are going on family holidays etc etc

None of us have studied biology and we wouldn't even be able to commence that game but yes, an alternative category could be selected, thank you

A word of advice: going anywhere other than the house you are staying during schoolies is going to be shit.
It's like 90% bogans and creepy older dudes. There's the occasional drunk sluzza around, but by the end of our second night my mates and I all deemed that shit wasn't worth it and just had a ball hanging out away from the typical schoolies freak show.

oh my god this could get insane.

My favorite ever is Arrogance though. You have a bucket and a deck of cards. The first person pours as much beer as they want into the bucket and picks either "red" or "black". If they correctly guess the color of the next card drawn, they pass the bucket to the left and the process repeats. If not, they have to scull the buckets contents. gets really interesting after 4-5 correct guesses in a row haha

I really feel like running them down in my car. At least the thread maker is going somewhere different just with his mates for a week, could be fun.

Yeah none of us were really keen on that. We are more hang around chilling and getting ****ed while watching the footy type people as opposed to clubby-nightlife people. You hear so much ****ed up shit, kids die every year I swear

Yeah where we are keeping most of our shenanigans to the household. There are another 2 houses full of kids from our school in the same town for a total of about 25 people so just maximum houseparty type deals. We took into account pretty much what you just said when we made the decision to go where we are going.

Not really.
We are not going to the real, "official" schoolies things like they have at Surfer's Paradise, Lorne or wherever else. We are just a bunch of people going to a house on a beach for a week during the time when most people are going to "real" schoolies, we are just calling it schoolies. We are not feeding that particular industry directly, unless that industry is in a direct partnership with the alcohol industry.....


which is plausible
