For at least the rest of term there will be coaching on monday sessions. We will only be using the shallow half ofâ”¬Ã¡the pool so the hardcore gayboaters amongst you will still be able to strut your stuff.
Next monday we will be doing draw strokes and moving sideways, so if you have never heard of a draw stroke or sculling draw, or just want to come along to get some tips on how to improve it, then come along next monday at 830.
see you all then
Wondering what to do over New Year this year? Put your mind at rest and come to paddle and party on the 2008/2009 Warwick Canoe New Year Tour!!!

Where: SYH Glen Nevis, Fort William, Scotland
Who: haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaardccccoooooooore!! Anyone who doesn't know whether they're paddling at a suitable level for this trip, ask a member of the exec but you need to have a decent amount of experience of 'the gnarl'.
How: this trip relies on those of you who drive automobiles of some shape or form. Let me know how many people you can transport (along with their boats and kit).
Cost: about â”¬Ãº170 for transport and accommodation, depending on petrol consumption and prices

Any questions, just ask.
Anyone want to do a water based first aid course?
You've had three weeks of recuperation, now it's time once again to hit that cheese fest that is SCORE. Same timings as last time, 1800hrs in the TES for those who want to get in on the drinksâ”¬Ã¡ offers, circling will comence at 1900hrs. "But what about us Leam trainers!" I hear Ye shout. Fear not for plans are afoot to make Leam training slightly earlier next week (details to be confirmed early next week).
Our dress theme for this social is bin bag clothing. Creativity will be rewarded, lazyness punnished! Pretty simple really, make an outfit out of bin bags.
It would be brilliant to see as good a turn out as our first visit to Score, and if you are Leam training it is compulsory you attend. No excuses about costumes will be accepted,â”¬Ã¡as it is so easy.
God speed those who are travelling down to London this weekend and good luck.
Ever sat on a polo pitch and wondered just what the hell the rules were? If so (and believe me, im not just talking about freshers!) there will be a rules course next tuesday at 5:00 until 7:00 in R0.12 (bottom floor of the Ramphal building). The course will cover all the basic rules and regulations needed to be able to play polo without being constantly interrupted by the ref's whistle! I have also been told that there willâ”¬Ã¡be practical demonstrations (don't ask me how these work without a swimming pool?!), and it will be a very good introduction for both those new to polo, and those that need a bit of a refresher on the rules.
Those interested in attending, please post below so that we can get an idea of numbers.
