Term 2 Week 3: Circling and Pop!

Posted 10h ago by Adriana Cormack

Week 3-Circling and Pop 🤩

Happy Monday everyone!!


Next week we will be heading to the copper rooms to go circling and dance the night away to some classic cheesy hits whilst all sporting some brilliant outfits!! 
To attend you will need a Week 3 circling ticket which can be found here: tickets.warwicksu.com or message me or Beth as we have some spares too!
The theme for this week is: PUNS!


I will attach links to some articles to give you an idea of what you might come as! But some ideas may include getting out your old Halloween costume to come as ‘copy cat’ or unveiling your monochrome wardrobe for ‘fifty shades of grey’ it’s up to you! Just be creative- there will be punishments for matching costumes. 


Click going on the event here: https://fb.me/e/1mKi0vAEi to attend!


*please note that this event may be subject to change due to either government or our own guidance! If we deem that the risk of Covid is too high for club members, we may decide to change this event last minute! There is also no obligation to stay for Pop! Everyone is more than welcome to come to circling and leave before Pop begins


Social love,
Adi and Beth

Term 2 Week 2: Pub Golf

Posted 3d ago by Adriana Cormack

Hey everyone!

It was lovely to see so many of you at the curry social last night!

 

If a few drinks at the pub is your cup of ‘tee’ 😉 then our next social is for you! Next Thursday we will be doing ‘Pub Golf’ which incorporates a bar crawl and a drinking game all in one! The aim: you have to try and drink your drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) in few sips to keep your scorecard as low as possible.

We will be meeting on campus at 19:30 and more details will be released on the facebook event in due course!

There may also be a chance to ‘par-tee’ at Kelseys afterwards to end the night too!

Just click going on the event here: https://fb.me/e/15tUzCkx2 if you are available to a’tee’nd!

 

Hoping to see you there!

Social love,

Adi and Beth x

Term 2 Updates: Tasters and BRAND NEW Canoe Skills List

Posted 12d ago by Sam Pfeffer-Matthews

Hi all

We have a few updates/reminders before term 2 begins next week:

 

Term 2 Taster Sessions

Bring your mates along, as the first two weeks of pool sessions are free for anyone to try out!

Canoe sessions are Monday 20:30-22:00 and Wednesday 20:30-22:00

Polo sessions are Tuesday 20:30-22:00 and Saturday 17:00-19:00

In canoe next week we'll be going through some more advanced paddling techniques before bringing in some new rescue skills which are bound to be a whole load of fun.

 

Canoe Skills List

Thank you to everyone who filled out our surveys at the end of last term. In response to some of your feedback, we are striving to make our pool sessions more structured and informative to focus on what each of you want to improve on. For a start, we've designed a brand new skills checklist full of the essential kayaking skills we think you should have experience of by the end of your first year of kayaking in the club. 

The list is accessed via our website at: https://warwickcanoe.uk/skills/

(Alternatively it can be found through Canoe -> My Skills)

When you feel comfortable enough with a skill on the list to the point where you could teach it to someone else, tick it off and it is automatically saved to your profile. While there is no requirement to do them in a strict order, it is highly reccommended that you complete all the skills in a section before moving on to the next.

Please approach any older member of the club for help learning a new skill or demonstrating one you already have - we're all here to help you improve as much as possible both in pool sessions and on trips!

 

Socials

Socials are back in full swing as soon as term begins so keep an eye out for details of our week 1 social very soon!

 

Looking forward to seeing you around

Canoe Love

Sam and all the execs xxx

**NOTICE ABOUT TONIGHT's POOL SESSION (22/11/21)**

Posted 1mth 26d ago by Sam Pfeffer-Matthews
 
It appears that Warwick Sport have messed up our booking on their system again with it only showing canoe polo desite tonight being a canoe pool session.
There is no requirement to have membership to both clubs, this is an error on the system and we're continually messaging warwick so that they can fix it.
 
For all future pool sessions, if there is an error on the booking system, just let a member of the exec know that you would like to attend and we'll be on hand to let you through the gates!
 
For tonight, remember your £1 so you don't miss out on tonight's Movember pool session
 
See you later!
Canoe Love
Sam xx
