Week 3 Social - Circling and POP!

Posted 1d 16h ago by Beth Hudson

Hellloooo all!

It was so great seeing you all at the bar crawl! We hope you had a good time.

Finally, the canoe and canoe polo club will be heading to the copper rooms to go circling and dance the night away to some classic club tunes. You'll need to be sat down at our tables and ready by 7:30 pm, you don't want to be late...

Tickets for circling have all sold out, however, there are some spare tickets that members of the club bought. If you need a ticket please message me or Adi. Feel free to join us just for pop too!

Spaces in the circle are limited to 30 so please put going on the event if you can make it: https://fb.me/e/4CbQIh7PK and also let us know if you plan on bringing a +1

The theme will be *drumroll*... the ABCs!! You need to come dressed as something that starts with the same letter of your name e.g. Dan the Dinosaur

We're A & B, and we can't wait to "C" your costumes

Social love

Adi & Beth

We’ll depart Friday afternoon and return to campus late Sunday evening. This trip is designed for people of all abilities so it doesn’t matter if you’ve never been on moving water before or are a certified big deal :)

Posted 17d ago by James Hickmott

After Curry Night, both Canoe and Canoe Polo clubs will be holding a by-elections event to vote for our new social secs next Thursday 7th October at 9:30 pm. These will be hosted at Kelsey’s and as we are electing Social Secs there will *likely* also be circling. Remember that Kelsey’s is cash-only!! Hopefully everyone will be attending the curry social first (starts at 7pm at Millenium Balti)

We can’t think of a better way to kick of the year than to get a curry at one of the best curry houses in Leamington Spa - Millennium Balti. Our tables are booked for Thursday 7th October at 7 pm. You can check out the menu here: http://www.millenniumbaltionlinenow.co.uk/menu.aspx 
 
Feel free to bring your own drinks to the restaurant (can be alcoholic) and they accept cards, although cash payments are quicker and easier.
 
We will be meeting at the bus interchange at 5:50 pm, keep an eye out for some of our exec in their canoe hoodies.
 
It’s a great way to meet everyone and it avoids a night of cooking and washing up!! We hope to see you there (and even stay afterward for our bi-elections at Kelsey’s)!
 
Please click going on the event below so that we know how many people to expect to make sure there is enough room for everyone:
 
Social love,
 
Dan, James and the rest of the exec

Covid-19 Update for in-person events

Posted 3mth 25d ago by Dan Collier
Morning all,
 
With further increases in cases within the university and the local area, both clubs have made the decision that it is now compulsory for anyone wanting to attend an in-person event to have a negative lateral flow test within the last 24 hours before the event. So this is for anyone wanting to attend the BBQ tonight, surf, and epic party.
 
You can get a lateral flow test on campus or pick up a lateral flow test kit from your local pharmacy. The at-home test kit only takes 40 minutes to complete.
Also in light of this, we will be limiting capacity at epic party to 30 people to comply with government guidelines. There are still spaces available and the remaining spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so please sign up on the website using the links below if you are planning on attending.
Alcohol ticket:
Non-alcohol ticket:
We will also be back on teams tomorrow evening at 7pm for an online social for those of you who cannot attend our in-person socials currently. The teams link is below:
Any questions or concerns please feel free to message an exec member.
Canolo love,
Dan and all the exec

><> ><> Kit fixing and social <>< <><

Posted 4mth 2d ago by James Hickmott
 
Ciao all,
 
This week we have an interesting social/session. On Sunday we will be meeting at the sports center for 3:00🕒, then we will be running a kit fixing session as well as an informal polo rules talk to get us all up to scratch😆!
Afterwards, we'll go to the pub🍻 until our regular pool session later that evening.
While this is available to canoe members as well, seeing as a few canoe boats 🛶 need some work as well, we strongly recommend polo members coming, especially if you're coming to BUCS🏀.
Anyway, I look forward to seeing many of you there, and I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week!
 
Canolo love,
James, and all the exec
