There are still a few places left for the day trip to the Nene artificial whitewater centre on Wednesday. This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to practice whitewater skills (be it beginners stuff or playboating) in a safe environment, with coaches on hand to guide you.

Cost will be maximum £15 (the more people there are, the less it will cost), including transport and exclusive use of the artificial course.

If you are interested please sign up on the website.

We're meeting at 12.30pm outside the sports centre. 

Hope to see you there!

Outdoor Activities First Aid Course - Details

Posted 16y 4mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Frodo
Summary: 13+14 Jan, 09.30-17.00, on campus. Want it? Email me NOW, don't 
reply to the forum post.

Dear all,

The Outdoor Activities First Aid Course
( ) has now been
confirmed as follows.

Dates: Sat 13th and Sun 14th January 2007
(ie not this term as originally planned).

Times: 09.30 - 17.00.

Places: are extremely limited for this weekend course; if you want to do it,
and can commit to it now, definitely, then please email me at . We have a certain number of places and a certain
number of reserve places.

Judging by the initial response from last month, we already have more
interest than allocatable places. As such, the
places will NOT be given on a first-come-first-served basis. 
The main reason for this is that because the 
two clubs have a limited number of places, the people sent on behalf of the
clubs should be willing to use what they learn on trips/at polo etc. Thus
there may be a slight bias in terms of allocating places towards those
people who (a) are most involved this year, and (b) have the longest amount
of time left at Warwick. This way the clubs should maximise their gains in
sending people on the course.

To repeat, please send an email to me, not a reply on the forum.

Week 9 trip to Wales

Week 9 trip is approaching!

We're camping in Mid-Wales, looking to run rivers like the Dulas (both rivers), Twymyn and Twrch,  the aim being to improve people's whitewater skills, and paddle some harder river sections, so if this appeals make sure you sign on the website for this trip. 

As usual, we'll be leaving Friday evening and returning Sunday. Cost will be £25 max.

Sign up will be going up tomorrow at 12 noon so get there fast to ensure you get a place.

If you can't make the weekend don't forget to sign up to the Neme whitewater trip on Wednesday 29th week 9 (sign up on the website). This will be perfect for everyone who wants to learn anything - from whitewater skills to playboating. We've booked the whole course entirely for our use and its a really safe place to learn stuff so keep that afternoon free.

See you all at Bond,

Chris and Louise

Polo Balls

Posted 16y 4mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Matt
We have had a polite but firm request from the Sports Centre that we stop throwing balls on the poolsides during polo training.  This is because of the risk of hitting people standing on the poolside, and the possibility of smashing windows or breaking ceiling panels.  It is also very irritating when balls 'find' their way onto the pitch during training games!


We do appreciate that people want to practice throwing and shooting.  We will try to come up with an organised session periodically in the Sports Hall to practice thowing, but in the meantime, any throwing practice will have to be on the water.

Thanks for your cooperation,

Coaching Secretary

Sunday Week 8/ 26th November, whichever calendar you go by...


Anybody who wants to play can do so; Warwick's teams will be finalised on the day.

It would make sunday simpler if you came on tuesday and let your respective captains know your availability.

The tournament starts at 10am, ie WHEN THE SPORTS CENTRE OPENS.

Warwick will be first on the water, so PLEASE BE PROMPT for 10.

Also, FRIDAY training is ON this week, 10-11am again.

Posted by: Where Am I

Thats right YOU could be celebrating the new year in style be it paddling huge rapids (or scenic stuff if youÔÇÖre into that kind of thing) with the Warwick Canoe Club.

So here it is:

Dates: 30th December (Saturday)-6th January (the Saturday before term starts)

Accomodation: Caravans by the sea (west coast of lake district) 30th-3rd following into ÔÇ£FatboyÔÇÖs cottageÔÇØ near Ambleside from the 3rd until the 6th.

Cost: should be less than £90, FOR A WHOLE WEEK!


Disclaimer: I warn you it WILL BE COLD! If you are adverse to such conditions DONÔÇÖT COME!


Please respond your interest to said trip by replying "to this email"/this means emailing me at NOT POSTING here.

In your email say: whether you want to come, whether you have a car.


For example:

Dear Andy,

Kind Sir, I am indeed interesting in attending the Lake District ÔÇ£ChristmasÔÇØ Tour- celebrating the new year in style,

In fact I am endowed with a car (which has roof rack) which can drive 3-4 of my friends up to the lake district and around a bit to various rivers.

Many Thanks,

Bob (your uncle)


Availabilty is strictly limited and priority will be given to drivers and paddling experience so please do not be offended if you apply and yet fail to get a place. Also, there will be another chance to tour with the club at the annual Scotland Tour in the Easter break. This is also a week long, has more places and is awesome.


***Email by MONDAY the 20th November, 4pm, late interest will not be considered (you have been warned...)***
