It’s 1999. 10 Things I Hate About You hits the cinemas, you’re listening to Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls on your mp3 player, and Spongebob has premiered for the first time (feel old yet?!). It’s the time of Nokia brick phones and butterfly clips.

Sure, most of us were under the age of five, or not even born… but UTSoC’s The Hunt is the perfect opportunity to party like it’s ‘99 and relive it all.

Here’s why we reckon you won’t want to miss it.

You get to dress up! Get creative. Go as your favourite Friends character. Or a Game Boy. Or the toddler version of yourself. The sky’s the limit.

It’s a scavenger hunt, of sorts. Your team will get points for every completed task, and we promise, you’ll have a hell of a lot of fun doing some seriously stupid stuff with your pals. Give birth to a watermelon. Serenade someone with a country love song. Take a group selfie in a bathroom cubicle. Give a stranger a high-five. The most coordinated team costume will get 500 points, so start planning!

It’s a great way to catch up with old friends, and make some new ones. Maybe you’ll bond with someone over a country love song or high five (see above), who knows?

Free drinks! Need we say more? You’ll get a free drink at all four bars on the pub crawl.

Keen to sign up? All you’ve got to do is follow these steps.

First, buy a ticket. If you’re hella keen but your mates don’t seem to be going for it, don’t worry - we’ll be sorting teams on the night, so it’s totally cool if you’re flying solo (look at you, bein’ all independent and stuff. Go you!). You can also sign up as a team of between 3 and 7 people.

Next, you’ll need to set up an Instagram account with your team name (to upload photos and videos of your completed tasks throughout the night). Follow the UTSoC Instagram and make sure you tag us on all your posts and hashtag #utsocrewinds.

On the night, just boogie your way to Scary Canary and head over to the registration desk. You’ll need a flash team name, and instagram handle and a team captain.

Hype up your team, get your free drink/s and The Hunt list, and prepare to celebrate the turn of the century again and again.
