Feeling fast? Saturday end of week 7 (Nov 18th) we will be sending a team of 12 to compete at BUCS Wild Water Racing on the river Washburn.
This trip will be a heavily subsidised £10 and is a great chance to get a day’s paddling and represent the club against other unis. We will also be leaving and returning on Saturday so you can keep your Sunday free.
If you like the sound of this, sign-ups will go live tomorrow (Tuesday) at midday https://warwickcanoe.uk/site/trips/. Send a message to Liam if you have any problems getting signed up.
Be aware, because this is BUCS you will need to be a current student.

Do you like being in control?
Want a shiny new whistle and some coloured pieces of plastic?
Want to learn rules from some of the UK's top refs?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a refs course is for you! Next Saturday, 4th November, we will be hosting one just for you (and Cherwell Canoe Club) on campus!
This is a great opportunity to get an understanding of the rules past the basics and also gain a qualification for your troubles. At the end of the day you can sit a paper hopefully making you a qualified referee (of sorts).
The course will run from 9.30 til 4.30 in A0.23 (social sciences) and will cost £12.50, or £20.00 with a shiny set of whistles and 1cards, and your very own rulebook!
If you want to come along, please sign up here:
If you missed out on Freshers’ Trip last weekend, fear not! Tyne Tour is almost upon us!
From 3rd-5th of November we will be heading up North for a weekend of paddling, camping, fireworks, Ceilidhing and socialising. Tyne Tour is one of our best trips of the year and involves kayaking clubs from all over the country congregating to paddle and partaaaaaay!
Signups will go live on the trips page of the website (http://www.warwickcanoe.uk/site/trips/) at midday this Thursday (26th October). This is one of our most popular trips of the year so get in there quickly. The trip is suitable for anyone that has been to at least one pool session (although more is recommended).
The trip will cost £38 for the weekend and that includes all the kit, transport and the ticket price for the event so it really is a bargain!
If you don't yet have an account on the website you'll need to make one before you sign up for the trip.
See you at Liam’s for Halloween on Thursday!

***Long post incoming***
For people who can’t (be bothered to) read:
Ball throwing Wednesdays 8-9am in Westwood games hall followed by an Xananas breakfast.
Team Training, Wednesday afternoons followed by a trip to the pub.
Friday sessions will now be invite only.
Want to work on your ball handling? Want to be a catch on the pitch? Come to Westwood Games Hall 8-9 on Wednesday mornings to learn how to throw and catch properly (the main reason to come is cheap breakfast in Xananas afterwards. All you need is Standard Membership which you should all already have.
Leam training is a great opportunity to spend more time on the water improving your fitness and ball skills. We’ll work on paddling technique, tactics and getting used to outdoors playing ready for BUCS. Then we’ll undo all our hard work by going to the pub for dinner… The only cost for this is possibly a return bus ticket (£3.90) but there should be some lifts in cars.
Friday sessions (yes freshers we’ve just kept these hidden until now) will be invite only to develop our As and ladies team. If you turn up without an invite you will NOT be allowed on the water. If you’re not being invited and feel like you should be, please do come and talk to me or Josh Charlwood and we can tell you where you need to be improving.
Sign ups are now open for our first trips of the term.
Sup Paddlers! â”œâ–‘â”¼Â©Ã”Ã‡â•‘â”¬Ã‚
As some of you may know by now, this week's social is the Three-Legged Bar Crawl!
Meet us this Thursday at the Duke at 19:30, where you'll be paired up with someone else and duct-taped to them, so you can struggle to stay upright even more than a usual bar crawl!
For anyone on or around campus, Tom will be running a bus shuttle once again at 19:00. Look out for the Canoe hoodie if you're not sure.
It's a fantastic opportunity for members of the club, new and old, to get to know each other, and for people new to Leam to get to know our usual watering holes.
See you soon!
Lara and Tom
