Ok BUCS has finally got it's act together and there will be slalom this year! [pause for cheering]
It's happening 31-1st of Feb up in Tee side (the north somewhere)â”¬Ã¡wkend 18 for thoseâ”¬Ã¡on the new system or wk14 for those oldes.â”¬Ã¡No slalom experience required, and it doesn't matter if you havn't done that much paddling before, heres a greatâ”¬Ã¡chance to learnâ”¬Ã¡and get some more paddling under your belt! It'sâ”¬Ã¡wicked-coolâ”¬Ã¡fun and a chance to compete in your new favourite sport. Plus there is a big party with the Theme of Knights and Damsels, perfect for that secret double life as medieval woman a number of you have.
The aim of the game to get down the course going through all the gates in the right direction, sounds easy! So sign up now and show us how itÃ”Ã‡Ã–s done. Oh and did I forget to mention as it's BUCS it should be mostly paid for by the uni so a pretty cheap weekend away!
So now you are all sold and dead excitedâ”¬Ã¡what to do next? Please post on the forum or email me which categories (see below) you want to enter ( probably K1 men/womenÃ”Ã‡Ã–s depending on your preference and a Team event (open/ men) )â”¬Ã¡ and your name and uni no. Deadline WK1

For those of you who remain around over the holidays, we have two sessions of holiday polo booked. The first of which is on Wednesday 10th of December, from 7:30 till 9:30. This session will be graced by Birmingham who are coming along to play a few friendlies, and will be an awsome chance to get some game practice in against different opposition.
The second session is on wednesday 17th of December from 8:30 till 9:30.
Hello happy paddlers!
The anual christmas meal will be held next monday [week 10] instead of the usualâ”¬Ã¡pool session. This fabulous event will include a three course meal for the bargin price of â”¬Ãº7.95, a free bottle of wine for every four people that come allong, discount prices on jugs of beer/cider/purple, a completely serious awards ceremony and of course the usual canoe club banter. This amasing event will be held at Robins well in Leamington, meet there at 1930hrs or at the campus bus stop at 1900hrs.
I need to know exact numbers by friday lunchtime so please reply to the news thread to confirm your attendance. Do not reply by email.
We shall also be holding the election for the second social sec! If you wish to run for the position come prepared to sing a song or perform a poem and make a short speech about why you would beâ”¬Ã¡the best personâ”¬Ã¡for the role.
Tomorrow is the first night of the ale festival and we shall be out in force, smearing our already tattered reputation with our carefree attitude towards public nudity. I hope to see you all there!
If you desire a jacket, if you lust after them at every waking moment, if they make you week at the knees and strong in the nipples, and you have told me that you want one, please get a cheque payable to UWSU for â”¬Ãº40 to either Mr. Peter Kennedy (esq.) or myself. If you have no ideaâ”¬Ã¡who either of us are, we're the tall ones. If you approach a tall member of the club who turns out to be neither Pete or me, they are decoys I have placed around the pool. If you jump on their backs they will turn toward us and point. Then just follow their fingers.
Kind regards, Robb.
Hello lovely people!

If you haveâ”¬Ã¡never been to an ale festival, you are soon to witness one of the greatestâ”¬Ã¡rituals man kind has ever partaken in. Some say it was not man but God himself that came up with the idea to stuff a room full of sweaty students,â”¬Ã¡enough good beer to sink the Kursk and a filthy crowd of Dorset peasants, but all you need to know is that Doors open atâ”¬Ã¡1800hrsâ”¬Ã¡next thursday night in the Tempory Events Structure. Getting there early is strongly recomended as ques are likely.
Entertainment will be served in gargantuan portions by the one and only Dr Busker. Said by some to be the last Victorian pianist, Dr. Busker is something of a canoe club tradition and a personal hero of mine. Seriously good fun.
If you are not a fan of Real Ale there are a selection of Ciders on sale, so everyone is catered for!
In the words of theâ”¬Ã¡legendry Busker himself "We're gona meet in the tent!"
hope youve all recovered froman epic night at score
Next monday we will be teaching bracing in the shallow end of the pool for those who would like to learn, so if your fed up of going upside down whenever you get pushed in polo, or go slightly off balance then this is the place to be, we are also saying that people should at least understand bracing before they try and learn to roll as it just makes life so much easier.
We're setting up a coaching rota,so if you would like to coach on a monday please email me, and please leave the coaching to those who are on the rota.
Thanks, see you on monday
Usual drill. Wed 1800hrs, Tes. Fancy dress is 70's or 80's disco.
