Signups for both Nene and Surf Trip will go live at 5pm tonight on the website.
Will cost £12 for transport, fuel and course hire.
Meet at the Sport Centre at 9am on Tuesday 20th June to pack the van. The course is booked for 2 hours from 11am – 1pm. You will just need a day’s paddling kit and a packed lunch. We will return to campus around 3pm.
Friday 23rd June to Sunday 25th/Monday 26th June.
We will be offering multiple transport options leaving on both Friday morning and Friday evening and returning on the Sunday and the Monday. Please sign up for both an outbound and a return journey or we may leave you in Newgale.
The cost of camping has unfortunetly gone up to £6 pppn this year. The cost of transport will be dependent on what transport is needed and the distribution between morning and evening so we will confirm prices to you closer to the time.
We will be offering optional 2017 Surf Trip T-shirts again this year designed by our soon to be Old Gits. They will cost around £10.20 but again we will confirm prices once we know numbers.
This will also give us the first opportunity to test the website under heavy load since it was migrated to its new home so be ready at 5pm tonight.
If you have any problems speak to myself or another member of the Canoe Exec.
I hope everyone’s exam prep and dissertations are going well, term 3 can be a stressful time so here is a reminder that all of our regular pool sessions are still running throughout term 3.
These are Monday 8:30-10:00pm, Wednesday 8:30-10:00pm and Thursday 3:30-4:30pm for Canoe with Tuesday 8:30-10:00pm and Saturday 6:30-8:30pm for Canoe Polo.
We have some exciting trips and socials coming up, to keep you motivated through your exams, for term 3 can be dark and full of terror.
Nene Trip - Tuesday 20th June (week 9)
The club will be going to the Nene Whitewater course for a day of kayaking. This is a good chance to practice catching eddies or moving water freestyle. Signups and more information including price will be released next week.
Surf Trip - Friday 23rd June to Monday 26th June (Weekend week 9)
When all exams are done what’s better than sitting on a beach/campsite in the Welsh sun (it does exist) drinking alcohol, eating BBQ food and very occasionally contemplating the possibility of trying some sea/surf kayaking? We will be taking an extended weekend break to Newgale in Pembrokeshire for our annual surf trip. As usual surf trip t-shirts will be available designed by our graduating members.
Skool Dayz – Saturday 17th June (week 8)
Instead of our usual handover social the whole club will be going to week 8 Skool Dayz. Get your ticket now here: https://www.warwicksu.com/ents/event/14540/
Pop! – Wednesday 21st June (week 9) NON-CIRCLING
Grab your week 9 Event Only Pop! ticket as we will be circling outside at the Bluebell BBQ’s. Bring alcohol, meat and fire and enjoy our open-air circle before heading into the copper rooms for Pop! Get your event only tickets here: https://www.warwicksu.com/ents/event/14524/
Epic Party – Thursday 29th June (week 10)
The greatest social event since Real Ale. Leamington rugby club, food, unlimited alcohol, bouncy castle - one single price. Need I say more.
Save the dates in your diary and more information about each event will be released closer to the time.
Good luck with exams,
The 2017/18 Canoe Exec
Unfortunately, there’s not going to be a social in Week 4. Instead, we’ll be hitting Skooldayz on Saturday Week 8, (17th June) so get your tickets now!
Don’t worry, we’ll remind you about it closer to the time :)
Social Sec Love,
Lara and Tom
To celebrate the new website, I've made some signups to celebrate. We will be sending an A-Team to the London international and the De Paddel tournament in Belgium.
We’ve come to the decision we would like to invite about 8 more people from the rest of the club to come along and form a B-Team to accompany us. There is also a chance to form a mixed team for the welsh international. If you would like to join us, please sign up at the links below:
London International (29th/30th July) link
Welsh International (5th/6th August) link
De Paddle International (19th/20th August) link

Following a short period of downtime caused by a botched database upgrade at our previous shared hosting the club's website has been moved to a virtual server and given a new shorter domain name. http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk is now https://warwickcanoe.uk, previous links will redirect shortly. https://canoepolo.club will be back up shortly.
In 10 years many execs have joined and left, boats have been purchased and broken, paddlers left behind, PHP functions depreciated and open source relational databases aquired by Oracle Coporation but the website hasn't received much more attention than a seasonal theme and a disclaimer tick box until now.
Many thanks goes to Webbo the ex11-webmonkey, who wrote this website in glorious web programming language of PHP and for hosting it for so long. With PHP7 compatability I can probably avoid rewriting the website in Rails for another few years.
