SWIM TRAINING

Swim training as mentioned on facebook last week shall begin this week for those interested! 

Times for this week (18th-24th) are: Monday 3.15 - 4.30 ; and Thursday 2-3 (No wednesday because of Leam training).

All you will need is to turn up at the pool with costumes. You can bring goggles or other paraphernalia if you wish!

I have compiled my own training list as well as accepting several sets from the Surf Club!
These range in difficulty! Mine are somewhat more gentle, for people who wish to maintain a certain level of fitness, while the others look at muscle building and improving fitness!

All levels of swimming are welcome due to the range in sets! We can talk about what type of training people want to do when we're there, as well as organising ourselves into lanes!

So grab your goggles and I'll see you there!


p.s. due to monday times you can leave kit in the sports centre for canoe in the evening! And on thursday canoe is right afterwards anyway!

Lazer Quest!!

For only £6 (+ a bus ticket) you will get 3 action-packed games of shooting small children/ grumpy old canoe folk. Make sure you bring your student ID! We will also be eating at a nearby Harvester beforehand (and probably going the pub afterwards...) Interested? Signups are up now! You have until TUESDAY 19th MIDDAY. This is because I need to confirm numbers with them. At this point you will have to commit to paying your £6 (shock! horror!) unless you can find someone else to replace you. Date: Thursday 28 Jan Times: 6.00 @ campus bus stop, 6.45 @ cov skydome harvester, 8.00 @ cov lazer quest Signups: http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/trips/ CLOSE TUESDAY 19 AT MIDDAY Cost: £6 + bus ticket (+ food/booze) P.S.

Scotland Tour 2016

Posted 4y 9mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Chris

Legeneds speak of a tour, a Scoland tour. A tour that'll take place Sunday 20th to Monday the 28th of March (week 10/11/12). A tour costing between £200 and £250, including accomodation, transport, kit, a group meal and more!  A tour so formiddable, we ask that you've been on a club trip beforehand (theres three happening this term if you havn't had the chance yet, details to follow). A tour that sprawls over two bunkhouses, first near Nethy Bridge, then on to Fort William. Also theres usually loads of kayaking and drinking (including kegs of Ale at the first bunkhouse!) and stuff and it's lots of fun.

This really is a once in a year oppurtunity, and you'll get the chance to paddle some of Scotlands most popular rivers, so save the dates, start budgeting, get excited, go on trips this term, and listen out for the sign ups early February. Let me know if you've any questions.

I hope you've all had nice breaks, see you soon!
