For those of you that don't look at the union canoe page (and those of you who can't get onto it because you've not a member yet... shame on you!) we currently have
members, which is a whole ELEVEN off
(for those arts students amongst you, 89+11=100)
which also means weÃ”Ã‡Ã–re a whole
people off a
(complete with 100 candles, balloons, a crown for the 100th member, etc. etc.)
SoÃ”Ã‡Âª if you havenÃ”Ã‡Ã–t joined, JOIN!! and get
your friends to join! (if you havenÃ”Ã‡Ã–t got any friends, bribe people)
(As an added incentive.. youÃ”Ã‡Ã–re not allowed, insurance-wise, to come on any canoe trips without joining to if you want to go on the surf trip, THE trip of the year which is open to all, then youÃ”Ã‡Ã–re going to have to join eventually anyway.. yes even you polo people)
Hope the hangovers arenÃ”Ã‡Ã–t too painful from last night everyone who went, see you all on Monday in the pool.
Due to the fact that Varsity went slightly mad and upped their prices from â”¬Ãº1 to â”¬Ãº1.50 half way through last year, we are going to celebrate their return planet earth this Thursday.
Not only are drinks â”¬Ãº1 but free food is available between 7 and 8 so get there early J
Due to the wonderful food I will be getting there for 7pm along with the hungry and hardcore.
Varsity closes late on Thursday but we are prepared to go onto other places (not the union to whatever strange night they have on a Thursday unless crash has moved day) but maybe the colli in cov or mirage/sugar in leam. Make your own mind up or play it by ear on the night.
Hope to see you all there,
Nicky + G
Those of us playing in West Midlands Div 1 Polo on Saturday (21st Jan) meet at 4.30 at the Sports Centre where Sam will be waiting with his van.â”¬Ã¡ Those lucky few are:-
Matt, Stu, Sam Quet, Ralph, Jenna, (Pete S and Sam Dale maybe)
Right those of you luck enough to have got a place read on. If for some unknown reason you wish to drop out RING ME NOW as i've got people to fill seats, but i can't do this if you just don't turn up. You will be banned from future trips if so (mwahhaaa - evil cackle)
Okay we are meeting FRIDAY NIGHT outside the CAMPUS SPORTS CENTRE at 6pm. EXEC - we're meeting 5.30pm outside garage to pack.
Taking a van (Noj if you could drive) and Mini bus (Katie and G to fight that one out). Be nice to your drivers, and kindly meantion if you see signs to scotland that they're headed the wrong way!
We are staying in a very nice bunkhouse in S Wales. The only catch is that there is another group in the adjoining dorm. If they happen to be Glaswegian climbers feel free to play arrogance and 'i have never' to the early hours with them, but if they're 60yr old ramblers can you just use some discretion!!! Cheers. There's a pub that advertises Fine Ale and good food just down the road... so food is up to you, they'll be somewhere to cook in the bunkhouse.
Other catch is we only have 15 beds, so 5 hardy buggers will need to camp. Volenteers stand as G, Hayden, Webbo, Strongman and Lousie - and this bunch will need camping stuff - everyone else just a sleeping bag.
Normal Canoe gear, thermals, fleeces, hats, wetsuits, food for the river, brekkie etc as normal. Plus a chq book so you can pay louise en trip. Theres a kit list on line if you need help.
Right think that is all you need to know.
See you on Friday!

World Student Games, read on if you're interested, i'll leave this one in your hands...
Please could you pass this onto your members in the canoe club, as it is an opportunity I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on.
On the 7th to the 10th of September 2006, the 5th World Student Games for Wild Water will be taking place in Krakow, Poland (the last one being 4 years ago). â”¬Ã¡There are two disciplines that are being held there, the one I am here to inform you about is Wild Water Racing. â”¬Ã¡
We hope to be taking out a team of students to represent GB universities.
This is where the opportunity is ... if you have an urge, or even just an incling to represent your country and never thought it would be possible (I certainly didn't until last year), want to try something new, and are willing to put the time and effort in to getting there, then read on....
Wild water racing is racing on moving water (white water), using 4.5m long boats and navigating your way down rapids from top to bottom in the shortest most efficient time possible. Don't worry if you don't have much experience on moving water, we hope to help you along the way, and it will be an experience not to miss as well as an opportunity not to be thrown away lightly. So why not have a try.
Remember anything is possible and 9 months is a long time.
If you are interested, have any questions then email me on studentswwr@TARSC.net and I hope to hear from you soon.
(Currently at Loughborough University)
Time for another weekend outside the bubble i think: This time South Wales.
Scarf's the boss on this one - It'll be a leave Friday early evening, return Sunday night job; and i'm going to book you lot a bunkhouse, so you'll even be spared the camping fiasco!
River wise it'll be Usk on Saturday (a really nice grade 3 stretch - everyone'll be fine on it) and several different options (maybe even some harder stuff if you want it) on Sunday. Even a chance to get that 2* assement ticked off if you're after that one.
Can't think what else you need to know, as usual me n Lousie'll keep costs as low as possible - but with a bunkhouse it'll be a tad more than usual - prob around the â”¬Ãº25 mark.
Everyone's welcome, if you're concerned have a chat to me or Scarf in the pool, but it'll be aimed at your level.
More Info to follow, SIGN UP IS ONLINE NOW at www.warwickcanoe.co.uk, under trips, hopefully we can take a big group but numbers will be restricted by transport so get in there fast...
Going to be a good one!
See you all on Monday
As our email system appears to have momentarily died i thought this was the best way of telling everyone about ice skating this Saturday!!!
We are going to be meeting in the bar at 6:45pm to go ICE SKATING at the coventry skydome.
Their session last from 8pm til 10pm and costs â”¬Ãº5.80 with free skate hire (unless we get less than 15 people, so bring all your firends and people you live with, everyone is welcome)
see you all there hopefully :)
