As has been well publicised in emails/forum/general mention in passing, the BUSAs are on the last weekend of the holidays (friday-sunday). Teams entered are Open A, Open B, Ladies A, and Old Gits. You should know whether or not you are going; if unsure please contact your team captain.
Just a reminder that you will need to make sure you have a tent sorted (or to have arranged space in someone else's) and have sleeping bag/camp bed etc.
This email is going out now, 5 weeks early, in case you need to pick any gear up from home over the holidays.
A more detailed suggested kit list (for those who've not been before) will go out nearer the time. Any questions in the mean time just ask anyone who's been before - they'll be happy to advise.
Additionally, if anyone needs somewhere to stay for a couple/few nights before we leave on the friday lunchtime (ie campus people who may not have rooms over easter) please get in touch and a roof will be found for you, as well as any belongings you may need to store until you get back into your rooms.
Enjoy the break, see you sometime in the next few weeks.
Big thanks to everyone who came to the elections last night - a great night as always (and as promised - cheers Pebble!) Hope everyone enjoyed themselves. What a quality pub!?
Your new Execs for 2007-2008 are as follows (just in case your memories are suffereing a little):

Gear Inspector and Maintenance Person (GIMP): G

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!
Two very strong teams thereâ”¬Ã¡- sure you'll all do a fine job. The old exec and the new exec official Handovers will be near the start of next term (date TBC), but exec responsibilities will be shared for a few weeks / rest of summer term (Rolling Exec) to allow smoooooooth transition.
Also big thanks must go to TV and Nicky for all the pre-organising, Louise for doing all the talking/introducing/cheesecake-serving last night, and of course also to Pete and John for deciding who was elected!
See you all soon,
Outgoing Canoe and Canoe Polo Execs
Sorry for that late notice (as usual with our great organising skills :P) but it is election time!!!
This year they are being held at the Newbold Comyn Arms in Leamington.â”¬Ã¡ This is situated near the leisure centre in the Newbold Comyn Park. (Post code is CV32 4EU)
For those in leam you can meet us there at around 7:30.
For those living in Cov or on campus will be meeting in the bar at 6:30.â”¬Ã¡
Food is going to be ordered on the night from the bar menu which can be found on this link:
Although it appears to be limited, you must remember this pub has currently four guest ales for leamingtons ale festival, live music and lots of giant sized games such as connect four and jenga!!!!
Hopefully you can all make it, and remember that even if you are not standing for anything, come along anyway as it is a night of classy entertainment with much to laugh at.
â”¬Ã¡As our reign comes to and end, we bid farewell!
Your ever wonderful social secs,
Nicky & Strongman

We want him to win and have as much support as possible there will therefor be a social in honour of are finely trimmed friend tomorrow night, heres the plan:
when: tomorrow tuesday the 13th meeting at rootes bar for â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡ 7.30pm starts at 8.00pm

The time is approaching for all you budding exec members to start thinking about what you want to run for.
Yes, the elections are nearly upon us. Thursday week 10 will witnessâ”¬Ã¡a new elite team elected to head the canoe and canoe polo clubs next year. Your current social secs will inform you of the details very soon, butâ”¬Ã¡it is certainly a social not to be missed, even if you don't want to run for aâ”¬Ã¡position. It's not just about the elections but it also aâ”¬Ã¡good old knees up and meal withâ”¬Ã¡tons of the club members there to reminisce about the year gone by.
For now here's a list of the positions up for grabs.
Canoe Polo club:
If you would like more details about what each each position entails have a look at the following link,â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/execpositions/â”¬Ã¡, alternatively ask any member of the exec for the low down of their role in running the club.
What you have to do at the elections:
Its as simple as that, so get your thinking caps on.
If you would like to run please email either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.comâ”¬Ã¡ stating which position you would like to run for. You can also run on the night but if you know you want to run for nowâ”¬Ã¡please email.
Good luck to all of you who run.
