Kit and Cocktails!

Posted by: Jefff

Our Kit and Cocktails social is this Thursday (29 Oct)!

We will be meeting at the arts centre bus stop at 17.00 and heading to Leam Boat Centre for 18.00. This is a great place to buy kit for upcoming trips at a very good price (anyone who went on Freshers' Trip will appreciate the need for warm kit!).

After that we will be heading to Lauren's house for cocktails! Alan is an expert bartender and has only ever poisoned 2 people so it should be a great time!

If you are interested you will need to bring £5 for cocktails. To help us gauge numbers there is a signup on the website:http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/trips/
You will need an account if you don't already. Instructions on the website.

See you all there!

Circling and POP

Don't forget guys POP this Wednesday (21st), it is mine and Jeff's first circling so you can't miss it!!! We would love to see as many people as possible, whether new or old. Freshers circling and POP is part of the uni experience I would really recommend trying it out!
Be at BAR FUSION (on campus) at 6:30ish for a 7pm start- be warned it will be busy so try to get there at 6:30ish, then we will head over to POP!

Don't worry if you haven't got a ticket yet, there are still POP tickets left (you don't need a circling ticket for Bar Fusion). So if you don't have a ticket BUY ONE

Had an email this morning about an opportunity to help out with events at Warwick sport. I've attached the email if anyone is interested Good Morning, I just wanted to remind you of the Warwick Sport Activator Recruitment Evening tonight in Rootes, Panarama 7pm start. This is for anyone who is interested in helping out and assisting with our Active Rock up and Play sessions, Leagues, Courses and Events. If there is anyone who just missed out on Exec positions within your club, or maybe you think they would benefit from taking on a little responsibility ÔÇô this would be perfect. The evening will be informal and start with a short presentation from Warwick Active and a quiz. Prizes will be given to the winning quiz teams and one person will win a Warwick Sport Gold Gym Membership! See our Facebook group below; https://www.facebook.com/events/434346486773296/ Please circulate this to anyone you think might be interested via email or social media. Entry is free and it promises to be a fun and enjoyable night for all. Kind Regards Iain
