*Leam Boat Centre Kit Trip*
We will be having another kit trip to the Leam Boat Centre next Wednesday week 9 (9th March). This is a perfect opportunity for anyone going on Scotland Tour or to the Cardiff Tournament to buy some last minute thermals, cags or strides. I can't emphasis enough how much more enjoyable the week will be if your warm.â”¬Ã¡
We will be leaving campus after lectures have finished at 1pm so there will be plenty of time for shopping before the inevitable Leam Training and Pop.
Don't forget your Skool Dayz ticket this Saturday, Pop week 9 circling ticket and there are places for Scotland and White Water Safety and Rescue (WWSR) course.
The battle lines have been drawn and the hats have been thrown into the ring! Please find below the manifestos of your three presidential candidates:
Freya Bull:â”¬Ã¡To borrow from Harry Potter, Ã”Ã‡Â£Every headmaster and headmistress of Hogwarts has brought something new [Ã”Ã‡Âª] for without progress there will be stagnation and decay. There again, progress for progress's sake must be discouraged, for our tried and tested traditions often require no tinkering. [Ã”Ã‡Âª] Let us move forward, then, into a new era of openness, effectiveness and accountability [Ã”Ã‡Âª]Ã”Ã‡Ã˜
In all seriousness, IÃ”Ã‡Ã–ve really loved my time in the club so far, and I hope that if I became President I would be able to give something back to the club. I would work with the rest of the exec to continue to build on the good work of previous exec, and to keep the club the friendly welcoming place it currently is. In particular I would focus on boosting membership even further, and developing the skills of all our members (through coached pool sessions and arranging courses). Having been on the exec already this year, I feel like I already know much of what is necessary as part of the exec, allowing me to focus on improving the club and making it even better than it already is.
Ollie Tarrant:â”¬Ã¡In the last couple of years I have had some of my best uni experiences within canoe club. I have always been actively involved within the club both on and off the water. Through my role as coaching secretary in Canoe and Treasurer on Canoe Polo I have developed a strong understanding of how the club runs and am experienced in organizing many aspects of the club whether itÃ”Ã‡Ã–s for finance, booking transport, coaching courses or even organizing a whole trip. I would like to help ensure that the club continues to run smoothly over the next year, and encourage another enthusiastic generation of fresherÃ”Ã‡Ã–s to join the club. If elected I plan to find a better option for the week 2 trip, rather than leam trip, that would better prepare people for fresherÃ”Ã‡Ã–s trip. IÃ”Ã‡Ã–m looking forward to another great year of awesome paddling, socials, pool sessions and more and I hope this is an experience I can ensure you all get to enjoy!
Sam Hennem:â”¬Ã¡IÃ”Ã‡Ã–m a better paddler than I have ever been thanks to this club, and now I hope to repay my debt by guiding it through the next year as president. I wonÃ”Ã‡Ã–t shake the budgie cage too much, as I think Sam and Gabs have run the club just right since I have been here, so will be following in their footsteps. Some things that I will change however:
We have a framework of brilliant pool sessions, coaching, trips and socials to grow the club to be bigger and better than ever.
