Polo rashvests

We'll at some point be ordering personalised polo rashvests, and need to come up with a design! They should be really really cool. The company can really do a lot. They made Bath rashvests, whoever remembers.. (they had the yellow "paddle hard... play harder..." logo on bright blue)
We want to come up with a Warwick polo logo to be put on the back, then something to be written on the front and on the upper arm. Suggestions?
Coulourwise I'd go with black and white, just so we don't end up like a complete rainbow colour selection seeing that probably not everyone will want to get them (yet I'd strongly suggest that everyone likely to venture the busas do). Also sticking to two colours is cheeper, so I've heared.
That's the for the company for whoever is curious.

Trips this Term

Posted 16y 2mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Fingers
Welcome back everyone,

In store for you this term is:
  • Week 3 - BUSA Slalom. Tell me asap if you have a sudden urge to sign up for this.
  • Week 6 - Refreshers Trip. To an as yet undisclosed location, suitable for beginners.
  • Week 7 - A hard river/surf trip depending on levels.
  • Week 9 - Potential trip to the National Student Rodeo (or a river trip, depending on levels/demand).
Sorry if this sounds a bit vague, but the nature of a trip will depend heavily on how much it rains before it, so we cannot plan them so far in advance.

There is also the Nene trip rearrangement to look forward to, and our mighty Easter Scotland Tour, which is open to anyone, lasts a week, and will be immense in every way. To enjoy the experience to its fullest, you should have been on a river, so try and come to some trips before then. Also, it is highly reccomended that if you are going on the Scotland Tour, you should consider buying a dry cag - talk to someone who has one if you are unsure.

Don't forget also the hectic social calender including: Ice Skating, Score and Elections.

I hope to see you all soon.


PS If you have ordered a jacket, but not picked it up yet, it is waiting in the Warwick Sport Office, at the top of the Sports Centre.

Right guys I hope everybody had a good christmas and new years, (dont ask Greg's knee) just thought Id give you dates and info on this terms socials so that all can prepare:

1) THE LEGENDARY PUB GOLF: Will you gain the title of Warwick canoe pub golf champion, lets see if the baron can put his money where his mouth is! ITs simple, a glorified pub crawl in which you can win holes (pubs) by drinking a variety of drinks. You dont have to compete and be an alcholic, all are welcome. The theme for this years pub golf will be hats, this could range from firemens hats to anything but the more random the better and home made ones are allways the best.
WHEN: next thursday 17 Jan
WHERE: Get to the grad for 7.30, we will end up in earlsdon, the home of pub golf
WHY: The funniest social of the year
some ideas:

2) week three SCORE, chaired by the mighty Nicola Woodcock, this week is Disney themed further details to come

3) week four ICE SKATING, the most dangerous social of term!

4) week six: A random social to be decied later

5) Week 8 or 9 elections more info to come later

Cheers all and hope to see you next thursday
