Covid-19 Club Update

Posted 4mth 11d ago by Adriana Cormack

Hey everyone!

Despite recent government guidance, we as a club are still asking for all members to test before pool sessions/socials in order to keep everyone safe (this is alongside the university guidance). As there is a difference in rules in Wales/Scotland it is vital that we do this to keep any trips running and club members safe.

If you do test positive, we ask that you do not attend any club events in order to minimise the spread.

 

Canoe and Polo love,

Adi and the rest of both execs x

<><Great Working Opportunity Available><>

Posted 4mth 12d ago by Sam Pfeffer-Matthews
If you're looking for some great work experience and some decent pay over the summer break (*and currently have FSRT*), Leam Boat Centre Ltd are offering an opportunity to do some freelance coaching for them.
 
One would require Paddlesport Instructor (PI) qualifications, but if you do not currently have that, LBC would offer us the 2-day course at a greatly discounted price.
Once onboard, there are tonnes of chances to teach both adults and kids either at weekends or in the evenings and so in a very short space of time, coaches will have already covered the cost of the PI course and be earning. During the summer there are lessons/courses to teach almost everyday if people want to start earning money in their spare time.
 
There are currently 6 spaces for a PI course on May 14th/15th which I myself hope to be attending. Let me know if you are interested in joining either on the course or with the work opportunity if you already have PI!
 
(You can also go straight to LBC if you have any questions by emailing info@leamboatcentre.com)

🍻🍏Real Ale Festival ~ Week 6 social🍏🍻

Posted 4mth 26d ago by Beth Hudson

Warwick Real Ale Festival returns (at last) on Thursday 17th February to fill the Copper Rooms once again with a huge variety of beers, ales, ciders and more!! The Festival also has many vegan, gluten-free, and 0% alcohol options.

We will be meeting in the Duck from 5pm and then heading into the festival from about 6:30pm.

For those who have never been before, the Festival is a cash only event and has a £3.50 entry fee, once you're in you can buy tokens from Reception (these are essentially monopoly money). Inside the copper rooms there are a variety of bars (not the usual Pop bars, they build their own) at which you can exchange tokens for drinks or food (vegan and vegetarian food is available). You can also buy merchandise (novelty pint glasses, silly hats, etc.) from the reception with cash. I highly recommend purchasing a pint glass!! There will also be live music every night.

As for pricing, it is cheaper than the Duck!

Please press 'going' on the event if you plan on joining us (especially as we will all get a discount if we go as a group 🤩) and we hope to see many of you lot there! https://fb.me/e/1a4MgUPbe

For Scotland and Surf we bulk buy different Lilley's Cider flavours so I strongly recommend trying a few flavours at the festival to learn what you like ~ Bee Sting is a personal favourite 🐝🍏

Social love,
Beth and Adi x

Morning all, just letting you all know that we have re-opened signups until the 12th as we wanted to make sure everyone who wanted to come can sign up, although we can't necessarily guarantee everyone a place, we'll do our best to bring as many people as possible.
We're also now planning on staying in an AirBnB, so we will no longer be camping🥳🥳. This likely will increase the cost of the trip by around £30 depending on numbers, but it should be much more fun, not to mention a lot warmer.
