Ciao all,
 
An exciting final update for BUCS signups! We will now be staying in a modern scout hut, and so there will be no need to camp!! We expect the trip will be less than £20, and we plan to head up on Friday evening (6th May), to return on Sunday evening (8th May). We would also appreciate if people could sign up as soon as possible.
If you have any questions, please message me or anyone else on exec.

Week 9- Circling and Pop!

Week 9 Pop!!

 

Hey everyone!

 

On Wednesday the 9th of March it is mine and @Beths last circle 😢. But to commemorate the brilliant year we have had running socials, we have one last circle before week 9 Pop! And would love as many of you to join us as possible.

 

The theme was released last week but if you need a reminder then look no further than the man of the (Wednesday evening 10pm—2am) hour himself; Disco Dave. This is an opportunity to try out a mullet and dance the night away with everyone in the club one last time before the end of term!

 

Click going on the event here: https://facebook.com/events/s/week-9-circling-and-pop/1154698621953478/

 

Hoping to see you all there!

 

Social love,

Covid-19 Club Update

Posted 2y 3mth ago by Adriana Cormack

Hey everyone!

Despite recent government guidance, we as a club are still asking for all members to test before pool sessions/socials in order to keep everyone safe (this is alongside the university guidance). As there is a difference in rules in Wales/Scotland it is vital that we do this to keep any trips running and club members safe.

If you do test positive, we ask that you do not attend any club events in order to minimise the spread.

 

Canoe and Polo love,

Adi and the rest of both execs x

<><Great Working Opportunity Available><>

Posted 2y 4mth ago by Sam Pfeffer-Matthews
If you're looking for some great work experience and some decent pay over the summer break (*and currently have FSRT*), Leam Boat Centre Ltd are offering an opportunity to do some freelance coaching for them.
 
One would require Paddlesport Instructor (PI) qualifications, but if you do not currently have that, LBC would offer us the 2-day course at a greatly discounted price.
Once onboard, there are tonnes of chances to teach both adults and kids either at weekends or in the evenings and so in a very short space of time, coaches will have already covered the cost of the PI course and be earning. During the summer there are lessons/courses to teach almost everyday if people want to start earning money in their spare time.
 
There are currently 6 spaces for a PI course on May 14th/15th which I myself hope to be attending. Let me know if you are interested in joining either on the course or with the work opportunity if you already have PI!
 
(You can also go straight to LBC if you have any questions by emailing info@leamboatcentre.com)
 
Canoe Love
Sam xx
