BUCS Polo kit

Posted 7y 9mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Bryce
Hello polo people, I will be making sure the boats and rest of the kit is ready to go to BUCS tomorrow from about 5.30 onwards. If you can drop down for a couple of hours it would be much appreciated - most of the work done will be checking and redoing bumpers and labelling kit. I'm picking paddles up at 5pm so if I'm not there when you arrive start getting boats out and checking they have bumpers and look at the paddles and decks to find which ones have a little "W" on the grab handle and which ones have a size aswell. Cheers, Bryce

Cast your judgement upon these brave many.
Rank players from 1 to 10 inclusive with 1 being the worst and 10 the best. Men and women are obviously on the same scale. The rating should be based on how good the player is in general: things like passing, catching, play making, tactics, polo paddling tekkers, shooting, saving, etc.
Please dont be nice and give everyone high scores as that will skew the system. Also dont rank too low, you mean bastards.

Please send your rankings to j.anderson.2@warwick.ac.uk by midnight of Friday the 24th April!
This is essential to the smooth running of the RAGE! League so please be prompt with your ranking response :)

Yours in polo,
Jamie :)

Elections

Posted 7y 9mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Gabs
Canoe and Canoe Polo elections will be happening on 30/04/15 (Thursday week 2).

They will start at 7pm so please be on time. Dress code is formal so suit up!

If you want to run for something on the canoe exec then please email president@warwickcanoe.co.uk, letting me know which position you want to run for.

If you want to run for something on the polo exec then please email a.humpert@warwick.ac.uk, letting Anja know which position you want to run for.

More details on the positions can be found here: http://warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/execpositions.

If you are running for something then you'll need to come up with a good canoe themed song/poem/dance entertainment and think of joke. You will recite the song and joke on the night.

If you're thinking of running for president then you'll need to submit a manifesto.
The deadline for submitting your manifesto is Saturday 18th April (last Saturday of Easter holidays) so that they can be sent out to the whole club in week 1 of term 3.


If youÔÇÖre still not sure whether you want to run for something or not, I would definitely urge you to! ItÔÇÖs a great way to have your say in how the club is run and looks great on your CV. There are lots of positions available so you can pick the one that sounds best to you.┬áThe club needs an exec full of team players, people who are committed to the club and their exec position and who are generally not an arse!

Warwick RAGE! League 2015

Hiya all Poloers,

After the BUCS event in the first weekend of term 3 (24th April) we will have little left to distract us from that living hell of studying our arses off to acheive.
We need a way to releive the stress and pressure.
Therefore I present to you the Annual Canoe Polo Warwick RAGE! League!
We sort out 4 teams based on how you rank each other as polo players so that the teams are as fair and equal as possible and this means that players of all abilities can play.
Then, each tuesday starting on the 28th April (week 2), each RAGE! team will play one game as part of the league, with the remaining pool time in the session being just for fun!
The winning RAGE! team at the end of the 6 weeks of matches will win street cred and a fabulous prize!

IF you would like to play in the RAGE! league, please sign up on the trips section of the website. Closing date will be tuesday 21st April.
 (It doesnt really matter if you cant make a couple of the weeks as there will be 6 weeks worth of matches, but dont sign up if you know that you will be away for the whole term. There will still be games for non-RAGE!-league players, just not as cool)

We will also be running a Fantasy Polo League!
You will be assigned a budget with which to purchase players to form a team from the people who sign up to the RAGE! League. The value of each player will be determined by the rankings you give each other for the RAGE! League. Players earn points for goals, saves, assists etc. during their RAGE! League games.  The cost of entering a team for the fantasy league is £2 and the managers of the teams coming 1st, 2nd and 3rd will receive 60%, 30%, 10% respectivly of the intake for the Fantasy Polo League. (dont worry about the Fantasy Polo League yet, more information will be emailed out on the Wednesday 22rd April)

So please sign up for the RAGE! League by 21st of April so that we have time to arrange teams and send out details for setting up fantasy league teams. We will start with the RAGE! league competition in Week 2 of next term (28th April).

Hi guys, Next Thursday 12th March we will be having our last social of term. This is traditionally a pre-tour social but obviously everyone is welcome. The plan will be to have a Spoons meal in Leam and then ultimately end up in Kelseys (as per)! Meet at 7:30pm in Benjamin Satchwell's (halway down the parade). I'm sure there will be a contingent of people coming from campus if you think you're likely to get lost!! See you then x
