BUCS Canoe Slalom at the weekend of week 6/21 (13th-15th February for real people)
The club shall be attending the annual British Universities and Colleges Sports Canoe Slalom competition on the 14th and 15th of February.
We shall drive up the Friday 13th night, sleep in a nice warm barn.
Do some slalom; http://www.canoeslalom.co.uk/info/FAQs.htm & youtube has some vids tooâ”¬Ã¡; Eat. Sleep. Repeat.
Theâ”¬Ã¡National Student Rodeoâ”¬Ã¡is fast approaching and tickets will be selling out quick.â”¬Ã¡
For those of you that don't know what it is, it is a weekend full of camping, BBQs, drinking, music, chasing a man dressed as a rabbit withâ”¬Ã¡the occasional bit of paddling thrown in, check out this video of 2013 NSR here:â”¬Ã¡http://vimeo.com/61173581â”¬Ã¡.â”¬Ã¡All of this is at HPP in Nottingham on the 6thâ”¬Ã¡to 8thâ”¬Ã¡March (Week 9).
How the weekend works:
Leave on friday and return on sunday as usual. We will be camping across the road from HPP at a campsite. Throughout the weekend you can enter events such as freestyle and the duo competition (which we won two years ago!!). On the Saturday night there is a big social organized by River Legacy along with a meal. There is a Carnival theme this year, judging by fancy dresses we had last year I expect some good ones.
More details will follow once I know prices. If you have any questions just ask me via email, facebook, the website or grab me at a pool session.
Please express your interest on this website forum. (as a rough cost guide, it'll be in the region of â”¬Ãº45 to â”¬Ãº50, I'll give a better idea once I know ticket prices)
Just as a welcome back social this Thursday (8th Jan), Jamie and I thought it would be nice if we were all to go for a curry in Leam (probably King BabaÃ”Ã‡Ã–s but weÃ”Ã‡Ã–ll let you know nearer the time). Plan will be to meet at the restaurant at 7:30 to stuff our faces and then possibly go for a couple of drinks afterwards. If you donÃ”Ã‡Ã–t know where the restaurant is/ are unsure of how to get there let me know.
â”¬Ã¡ Hopefully see you all there.
I've now made the secret santa list and will send everyone a text/fb message today to let them know who they're buying a present for. If you don't receive a message by the end of the day and think you've definitely signed up let me know and i'll try and sort it. Ho Ho Ho :)
