Hey Kayakers,
Fancy a break from revision, or something to do if you picked an awesome subject and have finished exams already? It's logo competition time! Both Canoe and Canoe Polo need new crests and/or logos for kit next year, so you've got from today until Midday 10th June to submit your best ideas to, before the club votes on them from 10-12th.
Happy logo-ing!

It may seem like summer is a long way off while you're in the midst of revision (unless you're lucky enough to have already finished), but actually it's not so far off now. And with the end of term comes surf trip, and with that surf trip t-shirts! This year they cost just £10, and the sizes are S(34/36"), M(38/40"), L(42/44") and XL(46/48"). To buy your t-shirt, just follow the payment link below by Wednesday 3rd June.

Thursday Cancelled

Hello all,

Just wanted to let everyone know that as a club we are running an event on the Piazza as a part of National Canoeing Week. We've managed to get hold of an ergo machine (like a rowing machine but for kayaking) and this looks to be great fun with everyone welcome to come along and give it a go, so bring your friends!

Unfortunately this piazza paddling extravaganza clashes with our usual Thursday 15:00-16:00 pool session so for this week it has been cancelled.


Ironman Help

I received this email and wasn't sure if anyone was up for earning a bit of money after exams are done. 
The club wont be going however if you can get yourselves there then you can use the club boats if needed.
Don't want anyone getting too bored after exams! 

Hi there,


Apologies for the email out of the blue, I hope you donÔÇÖt mind me getting in touch.


As you may have seen in the press, Ironman is coming to Chasewater Country Park, Staffordshire later this year on Sun 14th June.


IÔÇÖm responsible for the swim section of the ultra-distance triathlon and am currently in the process of recruiting safety kayakers to join our safety team for the event and wondered if any of your club members may be interested in getting involved?


We pay ┬ú45 per kayaker for the event ÔÇô which can either be paid to the individual directly or back into the club coffers (if youÔÇÖd like to use it as an opportunity to raise funds for the club) - whichever youÔÇÖd prefer.


I wonder if you could forward this onto your members and ask, if theyÔÇÖre interested in getting involved, to register for the event online here:┬á


It is an early start at Chasewater (briefing at 05:00) but is all done and dusted by 09:00. Accommodation (or camping) and BBQ is available and on offer for the Saturday evening if anyone would like to come over and stay on-site.


Any help you could offer in terms of recruitment would be greatly appreciated. If you have any other questions or queries please do let me know.
