On Saturday 8th March (Week 9) we will be heading down to Cardiff International Whitewater centre. This is a man made white water course and is a great place to practice everything you have learnt over the year in a controlled environment. All members are welcome (Highly recommended for Scotland peeps as you will get your shred sled a week early├░┼©┬ñ┬®)

Cost for course entry is £12.50 pp if you are a new/expired member or don't have an NUS card. If you have an NUS card it is £5 pp.

Signups will go live tomorrow @ noon at https://warwickcanoe.uk/site/trips/

Canoe Love,

SCOTLAND 2020 - HYPEMAS DAY 4 & 5

><> SCOTLAND HYPEMAS - DAY 4 & 5 <><

I've neglected the website because I worked out how to schedule posts on Facebook and couldn't on the website so I gave up and for that, I am sorry.

The fourth reason for signing up for Scotland is the fashion. A fabulously designed t-shirt is included in the price (or can be bought separately if you aren’t coming on the trip) and daily Strawbridges mean there are some good looks throughout the week.

#toursecknowsbest

What is the best thing to do after a long day of paddling? Stay up all night (obviously). Social night is a highlight of every tour and has provided many a classic story. It will happen one night in the second bunkhouse and will feature the clubs own special brand of eliminator. Costumes are mandatory (even if that's just the tour t-shirt) and must be based on the tour theme which will be announced after sign-ups.

#toursecproudlypresentsyourEliminator

Sign ups are happening tomorrow at 19.55, lots of people will be signing up at the duck.

SCOTLAND 2020 - HYPEMAS DAY 3

><> SCOTALND HYPEMAS DAY 3 <><

The whitewater isn’t the only the reason Scotland is the best trip of the year, we also get swanky bunkhouses with actual beds. We will be staying in a new bunkhouse for the first half of the trip this year, Glenbeg Bunkhouse (https://cragganoutdoors.co.uk/glenbeg-bunkhouse/), and then move to the Great Glen Hostel which is a club classic. Not only are the bunkhouses comfy but the minibus is too. New minibuses (RIP the old ones) mean no bars in the seats, so the drive will be much less painful this year.
 
Remember sign-ups will go live at 19.55 next Monday.

The second reason to go on Scotland is that you get your very own shred sled for the week. You can outfit your boat at the start of the week, and it will stay that way. This means that your boat can fit you properly.

 

Remember sign-ups open on Monday at 19.55.

SCOTLAND 2020 - HYPEMAS DAY 1

><> SCOTLAND 2020 – HYPEMAS DAY 1 <><

The main reason we go kayaking is for the whitewater, and some of the best whitewater is in Scotland. We will have 8 days of paddling where you will be able to hone your gnar shredding skills on rivers like the Findhorn, Garry, Spean and (fingers crossed) the Etive. We may even get to do some new sections.

Remember that sign-ups will open on Monday at 19.55.

It’s time to start the hype for the biggest trip of the year, the one you’ve all been waiting for... SCOTLAND 2020. On Sunday 15th March we will be heading north for some good ol’ gnar shredding. Hypemas will commence tomorrow with 5 days of prime reasons to join us on our annual pilgrimage.  Until then here are links to videos of Scotland Tours from previous years:

The trip will cost £250 which includes all transport, bunkhouses (one of which is new this year), kit borrowing costs and a tasteful T-shirt. We will be packing the van on Saturday 14th March, leaving at 7.55am on the 15th and returning to campus at some point in the evening on Tuesday 24th. You must have been on at least one trip with us before and if you have any questions feel free to message me or anyone else on exec.
