Rules For Kit Borrowing.

Posted 5y 10mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Charlie

You must inform the kit sec, or failing that the president, before taking club kit.  You must identify the kit you are taking, when you are taking it and when it will be returned. Inform the exec before you take it.

The cost for training is £2.50 per boat and relevant kit and £5.00 for tournaments. This will go towards maintaining the boat.

You must clean the boat and kit if you have been to an outside event, and return it safely and in the same condition as when you borrowed it.

If you already have kit out, you may not remove any more kit from the pool, this includes for university events. You may only borrow one boat and set of kit at a time.

The above conditions are in force from now on.

South Wales Trip-week 9

Did you miss out on all the paddling so far? Or fail to get to Tyne Tour? No worries the final trip of the year is upon us, on the weekend of 4th-6th of Decemeber we will be heading into Wales (scary I know) for yet another fun weekend paddling. Hopefully this will be the first weekend trip without a broken mini-bus!!!!! 

We will be going to South Wales to paddle the River Usk, leaving on the Friday night from the sports center and returning on Sunday evening.

Sign ups will go live on the trips part of the website (http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/trips/) at 6:30pm this Monday (23th November). This trip is bound to be popular so if you really want to come make sure you are online at 6:30!! The trip is again suitable for anyone that has been to at least one pool session (although more is recommended).

We will be staying in a Scout building so everyone will need a sleeping bag and if you want some comfort a sleeping mat as well. We have 5 club sleeping bags which will be available on a first come first serve basis once the confirmation emails have been sent out. Also, some of the exec members may have a spare if you ask nicely. As a warning there are no showers so make sure you bring deodorant etc so you don't smell too bad after a lovely day on the river. 

The trip will cost ┬ú35 for the weekend and that includes all the kit and transport. You will only need to bring shoes you donÔÇÖt mind getting wet, swimwear and lots of warm clothes!! We will also be doing a group meal on the saturday night, which will cost ┬ú2, let us know on the day if you don't want it or have any dietry requirements.

If you donÔÇÖt yet have an account on the website youÔÇÖll need to make one before you sign up for the trip.

Hopefully see you all at the pool on Monday.


Love Alan x
