Following the success of the last Canoe Polo Cancer Challenge (2004) York University are organising a bigger, better, longer event in June this year to raise money for Cancer Research.
What : 26 hour long, continuous Canoe Polo match
Where : Hatfield Water Park, Doncaster [where the BUSAs were]
When : June 9,10,11 [friday to sunday, end of week 8]
Details in more detail : http://www.cancerchallenge.org.uk/
Minimum individual sponsorship : â”¬Ãº10 ie not much at all (presumably inclusive of any entry/camping fee: am checking that); overall target is to beat the â”¬Ãº17,000 raised last time. Sponsor forms at http://www.cancerchallenge.org.uk/docs/sponsorform.pdfâ”¬Ã¡
Entrants do not have to play in pre-formed teams: the single match worksâ”¬Ã¡by continuously rotating substitutes throughout the 26 hours.
So far two people have asked about borrowing club kit for the weekend. This is fine provided it returns! If enough people are interested we can look into minibuses etc, otherwise its cars.
Please post if you are going/want to go but need transport, so we can think about numbers of people/spaces in cars/tents etc etc.
Questions to firstname.lastname@example.org / 07950733855 or post on the forum, maybe some old gits will remember from 2004...!
YAY! It's that time of year again, the weather's heating up, the sunburn lines are appearing and everyone and their uncle's cramming in the library... Ooh and the Surf trip sign up's up.
18th - 20th June Warwick Canoe Summer Surf Trip
The Surf trip is legend. Every Year we go to the Sports fed ball and party the night away (email your ticket nos in!) and then get up and going agin Sunday morning and head down to NewGale, St Davids for 3 days of Sun, Sea (definitely), Surf (hopefully!) Sand (everywhere) Beer and BBQ's. Its a huge event (40 of us last yr) and we camp literally metres from the beach. Any surfâ”¬Ã¡trip virgins just ask one of the oldies and sure they'll tell you the stories. It's a chilled 'do what you want when you want' format, so it doesn't matter if you're a beginnner, hardcore surf addict or just there for the party. Butâ”¬Ã¡what does matter is that you're there.
Go sign up. (and check out last years photos... way better than that revision you're 'doing' right now!)
Any questions grab one of us at the pool/give us a ring
Angie & Louise (07709490303 & 07984974172)
PS a transport sign up in online seperately, so if you want us to transport you there and back better go sign that list too.
This wednesday there will be 3 star training on a river meet at the Sports Centre at 12, if that time is bad give me a ring (07843098980) everyone that wants to do their 3 star at the weekend really needs to be there for coaching, if you cant come let me know and of course thursday in the pool, but only a limited amount can be achieved here.
Firday afternoon, (hopefully Lucy will post timings) we (the canoe club are hosting Pick 'N' Mix sports.â”¬Ã¡ This will be a great chance to show a lot of people what we do and what they could do in a few months, I have a plan regarding mass numbers of people in the pool at once but what i really need is people that are willing to come on down for the evening and help run different games, i'm pretty sure its going to be a laugh and could get us enough members for this 100 party. If you want to help again let me know, post , ring , txt or whateverâ”¬Ã¡the more people we have the better and anyone can help the more willing freshers the better.
I afraid thats all i have, if you need someone to call about dramas concerning this or any other topics raised then give me a call!
Ps Nottingham a week wednesday anyone?
On 14th May 2006 Leamington canoe club are hosting a doggy paddle fromâ”¬Ã¡Leamington to Stratford Upon Avon,â”¬Ã¡to raise money for The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.
