Montane Jackets

Hello All!

 
As some of you may have heard, every year we order montane jackets. Here is the link:http://www.montane.co.uk/range/men/extreme/extreme-smock
 
You can have them in multiple colours, red, black or green, and they will have your name on the front and the Warwick canoe logo on the back. As you can see they will be great for keeping warm on trips, and you will no longer have to feel jealous of older members swanning around in their jackets. 
 
The cost will be 79 pounds, which is less than last year, and quite cheap considering they cost over 100 quid normally. 
 
In order to get the cheaper deal, we need over ten people. So please get interested folks! If you want one of these there is a sign up online now at http://warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/trips/trip/295/. To select what size and colour you want please put that in the medical conditions section of the sign up. We are aiming to have the jackets arrive at some point next term so the order will be being placed at the end of week one next term so please make sure to sign up before then if you want one. 
 
See you all at christmas dinner! (and if not I wish you a happy studying session)

Due to numbers we are no longer going to harvester and laser quest, instead we will be going Leamington for food and film. The plan is get to Benjamin Satchwells at 6:30pm then head to Vue cinema on Portland Place at 20:00 to watch Gravity 3D . I'd suggest buying tickets online here: http://booking.myvue.com/home/my-tickets/cinema/leamington-spa/uid/01a5cfe201/si/8142

Freshers, this is an internal tournament we run on a Tuesday night once a term. ItÔÇÖs a great way to try out your first polo tournament and it's great fun! The teams will be mixed ability, so don't worry about being demolished by the A team.

When: 26th November 2013, 20:00 - 22:00

What do I have to do to play? Go to the website, click Trips on the left hand side and sign up under "RAGE! Tournament Winter 2013". If you have any problems, email me! If people just turn up, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PLAY.

Sign up by Saturday 23rd November to get on a team.
