¡PUB GOLF!
Hype hype hype hype hype

Next Friday (12 Feb) is PUB GOLF! This is an intense night of drinking and merriment: you have 9 drinks from 9 different pubs which you have to drink in as few sips as possible (like golf, hence the name...)

Don't worry if you are not as hardcore as those in the club with a crippling alcohol dependency (who will remain unnamed). There will be different courses to match your intended level of drinking.

The costume theme is history:
  • 1st years: Tudors/ any middle ages ish England thing - I don't care
  • 2nd years: Vikings
  • 3rd/4th/Stockton/Hadyn: Greeks/Romans
  • Postgrads/Old Gits: Cavemen
We will be meeting at 18.30 in The Duck for dinner or 19.30 for the start of the course. Remember to bring a pen/your preferred writing implement so you can mark your scorecard (which will be provided).

Love Jeff and Alan

Lakes Trip

Good news! On the weekend of week 4 (5th-7th Feb) we shall be heading for some awesome paddling in the Lake District. 

Whilst intended as more of an intermediate trip, we will very much tailor it to the group coming (i.e. if you fancy it and have been on a trip before then please sign up!). It will cost £35 for all your transport, accommodation and kit hire. You will need to bring a sleeping bag and roll mat as well as warm clothes [not cotton!] for on the river and shoes you don't mind getting wet. 

As if that wasn't enough of a reason to come, we have also arranged to have a coach to run some 3* assessments. (Syllabus: http://www.canoe-england.org.uk/media/pdf/BCU%203%20Star%20White%20Water%20Kayak%20Syllabi%20V3-0%20Oct13.pdf) If you would like to do your 3* then this will incurr an additional cost (to be confirmed, probably about £15/£20) and you will need to sign up separately.

As per usual, if you sign up and then can't make it then, if we cannot fill your place, you will unfortunately still have to pay.

Sign ups for the trip will open at 14:30 on Monday 1st Feb, sign ups for 3* assessments will open at 14:45 on Monday 1st Feb.

First Aid Course

Hi all, would anyone be interested in doing an REC First aid course on the 27th/28th February. This is a great opportunity to learn valuable first aid skills which could be vital on a river trip. It's a very worthwhile weekend and will make you extremely useful on future canoe trips. more details can be found here http://www.leamboatcentre.com/p/3386/REC-First-Aid---2-days#/images/product/prod_3386_131.jpg unfortunately this weekend does class with a Div3 regional polo event and a Warwick B's and ladies tournament and you would be unable to do both. Also the price stated in the website is £120 but as this course is run by Leam boat centre we will be able to subsidise this a bit. Very limited spaces available and we need to know if you're interested asap so if you are please comment below or email me on o.tarrant@warwick.ac.uk .
