Merry Christmas and next term

Hi guys!

Just to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hope you all enjoy the holiday break and come back in January ready for more canoeing action.

 We've got a lot lined up for you, running 3/4 weekend trips next term (likely to the weekends of weeks 3,5,7 and 9)  including more rivers, slalom and surfing, so make sure you keep an eye on your emails and on the website to find out about sign up for these. We'll also be offering those of you who want it opportunities to pass your 2* and start training people up on 3*. Hopefully we'll also be running some more day trips for people to practice their skills.

All of this will build up to the much anticipated Easter tour to Scotland, which is simply unmissable and a definite highlight of the year.  

Off the water we've also got loads of plans, from ice skating, pub golf, and the canoe clubs very own barn dance social, plus loads more.  So there's something for everyone to get involved with next term.

Once again, enjoy the holidays, see you in 2007!

BUSA Slalom

Next term BUSA are holding  Slalom competition on the 10th /11th February (end of week 5). This will be run like the white eater racing event, so those of you who missed out on the fun of that weekend make sure to sign up for this one.

It doesn't matter if you haven't done slalom before - anyone is welcome to have a go. Again, like WWR there will be a great social on saturday night, and loads of other universities there. There will also be a mini-polo competition on the sunday morning - so there is something for everyone.

If you participate in the BUSA competion Warwick Sport will cover the costs for the weekend.



See you at the Xmas dinner,

Sorry for any confusion; Polo sessions in the holidays have been changed to the usual


13th, 20th, 3rd (ie not the day after boxing day)

Again, can someone please inform the Sports Centre if low attendance is expected, especially on the 3rd Jan (Lakes Trip). Thanks

Holiday Polo

Posted by: Frodo

The pool is booked from 7.30 - 9.30 on TUESDAYS during the christmas break, (NOT including Boxing Day - sports centre is shut).

ie 12 and 19 December and 2 January

Turnout is normally OK in the holidays, but if  low/zero attendance is expected on any week, can someone please inform the Sports Centre. This especially applies to the last week, 2nd Jan, as many people will be on the Lakes Canoe Trip.
