Seal Launching

Hi guys

Im afraid we've been told by the pool staff that we're no longer allowed to seal launch into the pool as we are apparently damaging the tiles on the edge of the pool. I know this is really annoying, but we should do as theyve asked until they change their minds.

throwing practise

Hello, hello.
Nicky has booked the activities room in the Sports Centre at 11am tomorrow, i.e. Thursday, for us to have a little throwing practise. Anyone feel free to come along really, guys as well, and especially anyone going to the Beginners tournament.
The pitch at the weekend will be much bigger than what you're used to, so you might at times wish you could throw further and accurate passes will be essential. We'll probably also go over a few other things, like how you best block balls with your paddles, and some rules that you might have questions about.
Do come along if you're free at that hour.

Posted by: Einstein

Starting from next week, and continuing into term 2 the thursday 3-4 pool session will be specifically for coaching, we will cover basic 2 star skills among others, in the hope of organising a 2 star test next term. So please only come to the thursday session if you want to be coached, if you want to coach get in touch with me at coach@warwickcanoe.co.uk. The monday session is still for anybody, so if you want to go and play then you can and if your a fresher just looking for some practice and advice then just ask someone and im sure theyll be willing to help. Next Thursdays session will probably be T-rescues for those of you who haven't done it yet, or low and high braces if you have.

see you all tomorrow

Chris will be running a CST (cone safety test) starting next wednesday, and continuing the following wednesday (21st and 28th November) you have to go to both!! Times to be confirmed. This is a really useful thing to have, going through different rescues, throw lines, towing etc, and you'll need it if you want to get into coaching. Sign up will go online tomorrow (wednesday) at 12 o'clock.

SOCIAL Wednesday

Posted 14y 2mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: White Ninja
Firstly a bit of history:
 Wednesday is the third day of the week in most western countries and the fourth day of the week in the Judeo-Christian calendar, between Tuesday and Thursday. The name comes from the Middle English Wednes dei, which is from Old English Wēdnes dæg, meaning the day of the Germanic god Woden (Wodan) who was a god of the Anglo-Saxons in England until about the 7th century. Wēdnes dæg is like the Old Norse O├░insdagr ("Odin's day"), which is an early translation of the Latin dies Mercurii ("Mercury's day"). Though Mercury (the messenger of the gods) and Woden (the king of the Germanic gods) are not equivalent in most regards.

Back to more relevant issues: SCORE THIS WEDNESDAY

PLAN: meet at 7:30 in Rootes bar going to score at 10
TICKETS: may be free but ill check up this time we will all try to get to score
THEME: what you wanted to do when you get older when you were younger eg: in Roberts case A PHD student studying the capabilities of silicon

Bath Beginners Tournament

Posted by: Latvia
Gruess Gott (as in hi...),

There is very very exciting news - spaces for two teams have been confirmed and I've had a trip sign up created on www.warwickcanoe.co.uk for the University of Bath Beginners Canoe Polo Tournament.

It's all happening next Sunday 18th November. We'll be leaving campus very early on Sunday to be in Bath by 9am (should I have said this?) and be back 10pmish.

They define a Beginner as someone who's been paddling for less than a year and has not played in polo tournaments before. So if that's you, go, sign up! This is the perfect tournament opportunity and you'll get lots of games in a 50m pool! If it's somewhat like you and you look beginnerish you too will qualify.

If you are one of the rather experienced lot, still sign up if interested in coming, however we can only have one experienced player on the pitch at any time and I'll give priority to minibus drivers and team captains, and then see if there still is spaces.

Please sign up asap and by next Tuesday. If you haven't mastered the warwickcanoe website yet and need help e-mail me to tell you'd be interested to come to the tournament and e-mail webmonkey@warwickcanoe.co.uk with questions regarding your login.

See you all at polo hopefully today and on Friday,
