Welcome if youÃ”Ã‡Ã–re new to the club and welcome back otherwise! It was lovely to see so many of you at the session last night! A few things for you to make a note of:
See you all around,
Elle Presidente Signe
greg has decided that this will be vauguely hardcore/"good medium"â”¬Ã¡orientated - and if anyone has any input in where\whenâ”¬Ã¡they would like it to be then they should catch greg in the grad after canoe today, or reply on here fairly shortly...
I personally have no major preferance for either time or place (choices probably range between: lakes (north or south), peaks, wales (north or south), scottland(various locations), potential for ireland?????)
Warwick Canoe Polo Club EGM to elect a new Canoe Polo President
I now have a complete candidate list for the election of a new Canoe Polo Club President. There is only one candidate standing,
therefore your choice will be between the candidate and to re-open nominations. We still need your vote.
The candidate standing for the post of President is Signe Groza.
I have included below a copy of the small speach I will make on Signe's behalf shortly after holiday polo.
You may vote for either SIGNE or to R.O.N. NOW. You may either:-
- Vote in person following polo this evening
- E-mail your vote to me at M.C.Gill@warwick.ac.uk clearly stating ONLY your choice.
Any votes received after 10.00 pm on Thursday 27th September will not be counted. You may not vote more than once (by e-mail and in
person). I will be checking this!
I would very much love to be here tonight. Unfortunately this was not possible. Yet you all have already known me for some time, so
please just imagine my presence best you can. YouÃ”Ã‡Ã–ll know IÃ”Ã‡Ã¿ve been quite involved with the club before and a polo enthusiast ever since
my first year. A few things besides the day to day organisation that I would love to do as president would be to really focus on
equal opportunities and regaining Friday pool sessions. I would also try to organise regular Wednesday Leam training with the aim to pack
your time with as much polo and tournaments as one can manage.
NowÃ”Ã‡Âª I found a light bulb joke about playboaters and slalom paddlers, and couldnÃ”Ã‡Ã¿t resist adding on one about polo playersÃ”Ã‡Âª So
How many playboaters does it take to change a light bulb?
9; 1 to change it and 8 to lie about the size of the hole..
How many slalom paddlers does it take to change a light bulb?
4; 1 to change it and 3 to go: Nice Turn. Nice Turn. Nice Turn.
How many polo players does it take to change a light bulb?
5; 1 to approach it with a paddle and 4 to shout Ã”Ã‡Ã¿Ã”Ã‡Ã¿Hands!Ã”Ã‡Ã¿Ã”Ã‡Ã¿.
(Of course itÃ”Ã‡Ã–d also depend on how many they have brokenÃ”Ã‡Âª)
A poet I am not, so I'll keep it short,
I would much rather be playing, this fantasitc sport.
Kit sec is one job I've already done,
and all the time I had great fun
I bought a combat and revenge, two shiney new boats,
one of which even still floats!
So for president please vote Latvia
I'll do my best for the club and all of ya!
Hope you're well and enjoying summer, etc etc etc.
A change in personal circumstance has unfortunately causedâ”¬Ã¡me to have to withdraw from the Canoe Polo Exec.
This is because of changes to myâ”¬Ã¡PhD plans; it may well be that I will return to Warwick in January, though that is not definite. What is definite, however, is that I will not be there for the autumn term.
So, seeing as I wont officially be a university member, I'm not allowed to be a member of a sports club, let alone on an exec. Therefore a new president is needed, and an Emergency General Meeting will be called before the autumn term begins. (It has to be a physical gathering of members, so no internet voting or anything like that!)
This EGM will likely be held in the last week of the holiday, in order that I can arrange to handover properly before the shenanigans of week 1, with Freshers Fayre /â”¬Ã¡Sports Council / new intake. Doing it before then is not really an option because a certain percentage of members have to be present, and with people away from Uni that will be difficult. Hopefully in the last week before term starts, enough people will be back!
Ruth, being secretary, is going to take over for the rest of the summer (Thanks!) but does not want to stand for president for the whole of the year. Therefore please have a think about whether or not you wish to stand. A reminder email will go out nearer the time, and anyone wishing to say they want to run for the position can let the Exec know then.
My warwick email address will be withdrawn this week, soâ”¬Ã¡if you have any questions about what it involves pleaseâ”¬Ã¡use
jamesbonell (AT) googlemail.com
or get my number from someone who has it
Cheers, and good luck
Hello Guys and Girlies!!!
There seems to be spaces for raft racing on Friday, so if anyone is interested in a super cool fun amazing day out thenâ”¬Ã¡post here for a once in a life time opportunity! We are all meeting at LEAM BOAT CENTER, at 10:15 am. For campus dwellers and Cov commuters I will be getting theâ”¬Ã¡9:30 bus from campus, feel free to join me!!!
We will be making rafts and then racing them down the river,â”¬Ã¡so please bring suitable kit, aka wet stuff and a dry change of kit,â”¬Ã¡I havenÃ”Ã‡Ã–t checked the weather forecast, but as it is June and sunny outside my window currentlyâ”¬Ã¡I am assuming that tomorrow it will be a lovely summer day! (I accept no responsibility for wet horrible weather.)
There willâ”¬Ã¡alsoâ”¬Ã¡be a barbeque after the racing is done soâ”¬Ã¡you will also need to bring with you meat and drink (vegetarians can bring some alternative, I suppose)â”¬Ã¡and we will need aâ”¬Ã¡few barbeques.â”¬Ã¡
I don't know exactly what time we will be finished I reckon it will depend on the weather and whether we manage to raft all the way to France or not.
This fantastic day out will set you back â”¬Ãº5, which you will need to bring with you!!!
Hopefully see you all there!!!
Will be on WEDNESDAYS 8.00 - 9.30,
â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡ for the first week
which will be TUESDAY 8.00â”¬Ã¡- 9.30
So, 3rd July, then 11th, 18, 25th etc
This has been booked for the whole holiday.
