****EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT - DATE FOR THE DIARY****
We know this year hasn’t turned out exactly how any of us expected, so we have decided to hold our first-ever extra-special Club Info/Meet the Exec event, on Thursday 4th March at 6pm at the teams link here. Our usual virtual social will follow immediately after.
This will be a great opportunity for you to hear about the events and activities the clubs hold in a more ‘normal’ year, and our exec members will be there to answer all of your questions.
We will be covering the key events we usually hold, highlighting the fun club activities we have been able to run even during this abnormal year, and, for those of you who are thinking of running for exec next year, the exec will be giving an overview of their roles.
I’d really encourage everyone to pop along for this informal event - to learn more about our clubs and to share your feedback on how your past year(s) at the club have been.
And with regards to running for exec: being a member of the Canoe Polo exec has been one of the most rewarding parts of my university experience. I can’t recommend running for a role enough.
This year, the SU is looking to introduce a ‘Non-participation membership’ (for free!!). This will allow you to run for an exec position for next year even if you haven’t bought a full club membership. So please don’t be put off running for a position just because you don’t have a membership/haven’t attended many events this year. (If any pool sessions restart this academic year, you will need a full club membership to participate).
If you have any queries/questions about exec or any other aspect of the club then feel free to drop any of us a message.
Looking forward to seeing you all there,
Claudia and the rest of the execs xxxx

Happy Monday everyone!
Here’s your update for week 2 of the strava challenge
Congratulations again to everyone who took part this week! I believe that we manage to go to a university in one of the flattest areas of the UK and so any elevation is reaching new heights!
In total, we managed to climb 1405m which is 5X the height of the 7th tallest waterfall in the world (Cascade de Gavarnie in France for any waterfall enthusiasts).
For week 3 it's all about strava art so get creative and post screenshots of your magnificent adventures below.
The levels for this week will work slightly differently as everyone will get three votes in deciding the best strava art. You will be allowed three reacts for voting as follows:
A HEART react to a photo = 3 points
A WOW react to a photo = 2 points
A LIKE react to a photo = 1 point
🧡Usk: 6 points
🧡Leven: 10 points
🧡Etive: 15 points
Feel free to share any other photos of your adventures in the comments below too!!📸
