Week 8 – BBQ and POP!

Posted 5mth 27d ago by Emma Hymas
Hola amigos!
 
With exams out of the way (lucky for some), POP! makes its last appearance of the year.
 
Make sure to buy a Week 8 event only ticket as we will be grilling in the Claycroft suburbs (with some circling taking place too). We’ll meet at the Claycroft entrance at 7 as finding the BBQ can be a little bit challenging.
 
Whilst the BBQ will be set up and ready for arrival, remember to bring your own grilling goods and beverages of choice. Finding your way to Tesco and back is not for the faint of heart.
 
Lastly, the theme for this week is: Cocktails! 🍹
 
From an Old Fashioned to a Zombie, come dressed up as a cocktail of your choice. Non-unique costumes will attract a small punishment.
 
If you’re in need of some more inspiration here’s a list of some famous cocktails - https://www.diffordsguide.com/g/1152/cocktail-hall-of-fame.
 
 
Social Love,

Hi all,
We will be running a couple trips over the next month up to Nottingham for those who want to improve their playboating skills!
  1. Michał has been in contact with his kayaking coach (few times Poland champion and World Cup champion) who will be staying in Nottingham while training for the world Championship finals! There may be the opportunity for him to run a training session either for playboating on flatwater or in a hole next weekend (11/12th June).
  2. Saturday the 2nd July also sees the biggest freestyle event of the year at the Men’s and Women’s ICF world championships final, which shall showcase the best professional freestyle kayakers in the world. We hope to run a casual trip up to Nottingham HPP to give it a watch!
Let me know asap if you'd be interested in either trip and we'll put something together!

You can put a team together to try and beat everyone else. As each player plays they will get points and these will go towards your fantasy team. There will be prizes for the winning fantasy team!
You can enter multiple times, £2 per team you enter. The money raised will go towards one of the 3 charities that each playing team is fighting for.

><> ><> Rage reminder <>< <><

Posted 6mth 13d ago by James Hickmott
 
Ciao all,
 
Just a reminder that the signups for our rage tournament are closing tomorrow.
For those of you who have never taken part before, it's a charity polo tournament which will be taking place in the Tuesday sessions of weeks 6, 7, and 8, where there will also be a fantasy league taking place at the same time, for people to select a winning team, based on how people play, which goes far beyond just the winning team, with points for things such as successful bins, and negative points for cards, for example.
You also don't need to be free every week, as the teams will have subs, so anyone can feel free to signup.
If you have any questions, as always, feel free to ask me, or anyone on exec.
Polo love,
James, and all the exec

Hi everyone!!

Following on from Dan’s post the other day, we have now decided on the 3 charities that each team will be competing for at RAGE in weeks 6-8. They are:

Women’s Aid (https://www.womensaid.org.uk/)

Mind (https://www.mind.org.uk/)

Little Princess Trust (https://www.littleprincesses.org.uk/)

 

I have attached the links for each of their webpages incase you would like to have a look at what it is they do!

As Dan said, the cost for play will be £2, which will be entered into the prize fund and then donated to one of these charities, depending on the winning team :)

Rage 2022

Posted 6mth 17d ago by Dan Collier

CANOE POLO'S RAGE TOURNAMENT IS BACK!

 

For those of you who have never heard of RAGE, this is a little in-house tournament that we will be hosting for weeks 6 to 8 on our Tuesday session. At the same time, we will have a fantasy league going on. This is a great way to relax whilst the final exams happen. You do not have to be able to attend each session to take part.

 

This year we are running this as a charity event. This means for every session that you wish to partake in, we will ask for a £2 entry fee, which will go towards the prize fund. There will be 3 teams this year, each competing for a selected charity. The prize fund will be donated to the charity of the winning team. 

 

Sign-ups are now live and close on Tuesday 24th:

https://warwickcanoe.uk/trips/trip.php?trip_id=114

 

Any questions please feel free to ask.

Polo love,

Dan
