Next thursday I'll be coming up to Uni to fix up a few boats pre-Bucs.
Any help will be gratefully accepted whatever your experience. Even if it is just a hand getting boats from the sports centre to Westwood.
I can put up anyone without accomodation at my place. Please post here if you're interested.
Depending on arrangements we may alsoâ”¬Ã¡need people to move boats back the following Tuesday (I will be unable to do this)
ItÃ”Ã‡Ã–s time to put all of our training from the last year into practice!â”¬Ã¡ All the pool sessions, Leam training and tournaments have just been preparation for the main event: the BUCS Canoe Polo Championship 2009!
Where: Hatfield Water Park, near Doncaster.
When: Friday 24th - Sunday 26th April (End of week one, term three).â”¬Ã¡ Leaving campus Friday afternoon/evening and returning late on Sunday.
Sign-up: is here.â”¬Ã¡ Please sign up as soon as possible although note that places on the trip will not be allocated as first-come-first-served, but will be at the discretion of the team captains.â”¬Ã¡ Anyone interested in playing should sign up, as teams will be drawn only from those who do.
Cost: Free!â”¬Ã¡ As it's BUCS, entry fees and transport are taken care of, so your only cost should be food and drink for the weekend.â”¬Ã¡ A meal on Saturday evening is also provided.
Referees Course:â”¬Ã¡ A ref's course is held on the Friday.â”¬Ã¡ If there is sufficient interest from the club we may be able to organise sending a car or two with people wishing to take part in the course.â”¬Ã¡ Please send me an email at email@example.com if you are interestedâ”¬Ã¡ There will be a small cost associated with this (â”¬Ãº12.50 for the course, â”¬Ãº5 if you want a ref's pack (usually whistle, cards, sometimes a paddle gauge))â”¬Ã¡ A contribution to the cost of transport may also be necessary.
Dear Cowering Massess,
I was reminded the other day that there is a ceilidh occurring at the union this Sunday evening (at least, I'm pretty sure it's this Sunday evening). I realise that this is of course a social, and I am not the social sec, but I feel very enthusiastic on the subject of ceilidhs, barn dances and folk music in general, so I asked those revered organisers of our social calendar whether I could send this email and they very kindly agreed.
For those of you who, in Michael Jackson's words 'are ignorant', a ceilidh is the most wonderful way to spend an evening. It is essentially a very exuberant dance to folk music from around the UK and, get this, they tell you what to do! If like me, when left to your own devices on the dancefloor you tend to oscillate (depending on level of inebriation) between the embarrassed Englishman bop and the wild and dangerous 'flail', with no happy medium, this is indeed a blessing. Of course, if you wish to do your own thing (and there will be bars open) I feel sure that no-one will oppose you, at least, not if your 'flail' is as extreme as mine can be.
So come along! It can be a cheap night, as there is no real reason to drink (I'm going to because I like to. A lot.) and it's a great opportunity to get to know some traditional dances and have MASSES of fun. If you are dubious because you feel it will be twee and reserved, and would rather rub yourself against odious strangers to grind, you could not be more wrong. A ceilidh can be a deeply sexual experience. I may even wear chapless trousers to display what will by then be my freshly tattooed backside!
P.S. Ceilidhs get very warm!
The Canoe and Canoe Polo club elections will be held from 1900hrs on the evening of Thursday week 10 (12th of March), in Robins Well, Leamington. Dress is 'Smart', interperate that however you like, but it would be nice to see some frocks and ties. We'll be having food in the form of burgers and chips. You can either have Beef, Chicken or Veg. You also get aâ”¬Ã¡pint (soft drinks included)â”¬Ã¡with that for the sum total of â”¬Ãº3.50!â”¬Ã¡Please reply to this thread, notifying me whichâ”¬Ã¡burger option you would like,â”¬Ã¡BEFORE 1200hrs on Tuesday Wk10â”¬Ã¡(10th) as I have to let the Well know numbersâ”¬Ã¡in advance.
If you are planning on running for a positon you need to have some sort of entertainment prepare for us in the form of a song of poem, detailing you suitability for the role. If you haven't decided if/what you want to run for, have a chat with an Exec member. You could become a fundemental influence in the growth and direction of what is already a damn fine club.
If you are travelling from campus meet at the bus stop at 1830. There will be people there from the club who know the way to the Well.
See you soon.
Your soon to be ex Social sex.
