Polo Leam Trip (Week 5)

Posted by: Josh
Having trouble getting your bow up?  
Really craving a Spoon's burger?
Want an excuse to not do any work?

If you answered yes to one of these (or you just feel like it) then please join me at the river Leam this coming Wednesday for a couple of hours of paddling and polo practice.  

If you do decide that Leam training is for you please sign up on the website (see link).

We'll be meeting at the sports centre at 12.30 to get all the kit then on to Leam!!!

I'm sure we can provide cags/ wetsuits for those of you who suffer from cold reptile like blood. If you need one or both please let me know so I can make it happen!

Hope to see lots of people there!!

The next Warwick B's and Ladies canoe polo tournament will be taking place on Sunday 12th February, 12:00 - 19:00 at the Sport Centre. 

This is a good opportunity to play canoe polo games against other universities in a tournament situation and is good preparation for BUCS later in the year. 

Sign ups are currently live here: http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/trips/trip/425/ 

Anyone who can't or doesn't want to play is more than welcome to come along and support the teams. 

Cardiff Tournament

CARDIFF TOURNAMENT

Need more partying (and polo) in your life? On 17-19 March (weekend week 10) we will be sending the A, B, Ladies and Old Git teams to the Cardiff Tournament! This will be a great camping weekend by some random lakes in Wales, and you will have plenty of opportunities to "interact" with other unis. This will likely be your last chance to impress your captains before BUCS!

The trip will cost £35, which will cover transport, entry to the tournament, accommodation, a Saturday meal (apparently quite tasty), and a huge party (space themed)!

If you are interested, please sign up by MIDNIGHT MONDAY 13 FEB. http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/trips/trip/424/

Lakes Trip

Next weekend (3rd-5th Feb) the club heads to the Lake District for another weekend of paddling (hopefully with more water this time!) Lakes trip is primarily aimed at those who have already attended at least one river trip, however as always we adapt what we paddle to match the group, not the other way round, so if you want to come but haven't previously attended a trip, feel free to still sign up. I would recommend Lakes to anyone, it's my favourite trip of the year, plus really good preparation for Scotland. The trip will cost £38, and sign ups will go up at 4pm this Friday.

Polo Leam Trip Term 2 Week 3

Do you get tired too quickly in a game? 
Do you miss the Jug and Jester already?
Would you like some extra time in a boat so you can perfect 'that' skill?

If you answered yes to one of these (or you just feel like it) then please join me at the river Leam this coming Wednesday for a couple of hours of paddling and polo practice. 

If you do decide that Leam training is for you please sign up on the website (see link).

I'm sure we can provide cags/ wetsuits for those of you who suffer from cold reptile like blood. If you need one or both please let me know so I can make it happen!

Hope to see lots of people there!!

Refreshers Trip

Posted 4y 9mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Freja
At the end of week 2 will be Refreshers, our annual trip to Dartmoor for a weekend of whitewater kayaking. The trip will cost £38 and is open to all members. It is a great first trip for an introduction to white water, or as a gentle first trip of the term for our more experienced members (we'll inevitably be paddling the Dart Loop). I'd highly recommend anyone who's thinking of coming on later trips this term to sign up for Refreshers, as we often require people to have already been on at least one trip before signing up for Scotland or Lakes. Sign ups are now up!

As mentioned previously this term, next term the club has organised a WWSR (White Water Safety & Rescue) course. The price is now confirmed to be £75 pp, subject to us having enough personal cars (if not the price would increase slightly to cover the cost of rental). We have decided on 2 different weekends, week 0 (7/8th Jan) and week 3 (28/29th Jan). Sign ups will be up at 5pm this Friday, please sign up for the weekend you would prefer, or if you have no preference, sign up for both.
The course is open to any club member who is interested, so long as you have attended at least one club trip previously, however places are very limited (6 people per weekend).
