On Sunday 7thâ”¬Ã¡December we are hosting our own Canoe Polo tournament right here in the Sports Centre. This is you first chance to play polo competitively against other universities in a tournament setting. This is a BÃ”Ã‡Ã–s and Ladies tournament so it is completely Fresher friendly, anyone who has been to at least one canoe polo session and isnÃ”Ã‡Ã–t already in the A team is welcome to come along and play.â”¬Ã¡
The tournament is free for Warwick members (we charge other clubs to enter teams so that we can fund our fleet of boats).â”¬Ã¡
If youÃ”Ã‡Ã–re interested in playing then please sign up on the website here: http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/trips/trip/325/â”¬Ã¡this is to gauge interest when forming the teams and doesnÃ”Ã‡Ã–t commit you to play however, if you sign up but become unable to attend then an e-mail or Facebook message to one of the exec members would be appreciated as a courteous. â”¬Ã¡
I look forward to showing the other uniÃ”Ã‡Ã–s what Warwick can do and remember:â”¬Ã¡Percello infirmus boof mortuisâ”¬Ã¡
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
A week on saturday (22nd Nov, week 8) we shall be heading to the Nene Whitewater Centre. We have the course for 2 hours 1pm till 3pm. It is a great chance to paddle some whitewater close to home and practice everything you've learnt over the past few weeks. (This is a day trip)
Sign ups will open at midday on thursday 13th (tomorrow), there are limited spaces so make sure you sign up quick! Sign up at the usual place :â”¬Ã¡http://warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/trips/
Cost will be around â”¬Ãº10, absolute bargin!!! Will be confirmed in confirmation email.
Sign ups close 5pm on saturday 15th. Confirmation email to be sent out that evening with details of how to pay.
Meet at the sports centre at 10:30
Just bring your lovely self, a towel, and things to paddle in, you will be able to borrow wetsuits, cags etc...
We will back on campus around 5pm giving you plenty of time to get ready for Skool Days!! (Hope you've all bought tickets).
Just a bit of information about socials for the rest of term.
Week 7 isâ”¬Ã¡Polo Socials which you will be given more information about this week (hopefully).â”¬Ã¡GIRLS we will probably be heading into Leam for a meal and then some civilised drinks but i'll let you know more information this week.
Saturday Week 8, 22nd Nov,â”¬Ã¡is School Days. So buy your tickets NOW! We will be pre drinking somewhere near/on campus (address & time tbc)
Wednesday Week 9, 26th Nov, POP! Buy your circling tickets NOW! Theme is 'Time-Travel' so I'm expecting some awesome way-out costumes.
Thursday, week 10, 4th December,â”¬Ã¡we have our annual Christmas Meal at the Robbins' Well in Leam.â”¬Ã¡We will most likely arrive at theâ”¬Ã¡Well for 7pm to eat for 7:30.â”¬Ã¡The idea is we each pay â”¬Ãº10 to have a 3 course meal and then plan on getting merry!! (and lets be honest probably end up in Kelseys) There will also be an optionalâ”¬Ã¡Secret Santa (rough price guide â”¬Ãº5). There will be a sign up for Christmas Meal on the website and a seperate one for Secret Santa so you can know who youre buying a present for in advance. You must sign up for the meal and the secret santa (if you want to) by Monday 24th November so we can let the Well know how many people are coming and organise the secret santa (inform you of who you'll be buying a present for and give you time to buy it). The Christmas menu will be posted on a forum on the website andâ”¬Ã¡you will need toâ”¬Ã¡add aâ”¬Ã¡comment with what you want to eat when you sign up.
Lots of Love,
Your loyal social secs,
Lauren and Jamie xx
Next Thursday (30thâ”¬Ã¡October) we will be holding a Ã”Ã‡Ã¿kit trip and cocktailsÃ”Ã‡Ã– social. The idea is that you can get some great paddling kit from the Ã”Ã‡Ã¿Leam boat centreÃ”Ã‡Ã–â”¬Ã¡ (http://www.leisure-boat.co.uk/pg/405/Boat-Hire) for trips or pool sessions at a specially discounted price put on just for us and then afterwards weÃ”Ã‡Ã–ll be having some great tasting cocktails made by yours truly! We will be heading to the Ã”Ã‡Ã¿Leam Boat CentreÃ”Ã‡Ã– for 5:30pm so meet outside sportÃ”Ã‡Ã–s centre at 4:45pm for those on campus or meet at the boat centre at 5:30pm for those in Leam. If you canÃ”Ã‡Ã–t make it for 5:30pm weÃ”Ã‡Ã–ll be there till about 7pm so turn up whenever or just come for cocktails later (preferably let us know your plans).
Afterwards we will be heading to Gabs and JevÃ”Ã‡Ã–s house for cocktails. We will ask for a contribution of â”¬Ãº5 for the drinks and there will be a SIGN UP on the website under 'trips' section so we know how many people are coming. If you sign up and then decide not to come youÃ”Ã‡Ã–ve still got to pay or let us know within plenty of time (eg before we go shopping) otherwise weÃ”Ã‡Ã–ll buy too much alcohol!! The sign up will close Tuesday. Food wise, weÃ”Ã‡Ã–ll buy a few small snacks to have with the cocktails but I encourage you to eat beforehand if possible.
This is a great opportunity to get kit for Tyne Tour or any future trips. Hopefully weÃ”Ã‡Ã–ll see you all there!
Lots of Love,
Your super cool social secs,
Lauren and Jamie.
Tyne Tour 2014 is almost here!
On the weekend of week 5 (31/10/14-2/11/14) we will be heading to Hexham to take part in the famous Tyne Tour. As most of our trips, we will be leaving at around 4pm on Friday and getting back late evening on Sunday.
Tyne Tour is a weekend spent up North where uni groups from all round the country and other paddlers alike all descend to the same place for a weekend of camping, Ceilidhing, socialising andâ”¬Ã¡kayaking.
This trip, like fresherÃ”Ã‡Ã–s trip, is suitable for anyone who has been to a pool session (but more than one session is definitely recommended), so if you missed out on fresherÃ”Ã‡Ã–s trip, donÃ”Ã‡Ã–t worry. You can still sign up and come along even if you have never been on white water before. YouÃ”Ã‡Ã–re equally welcome to come if you went on freshers trip too!
The cost will be â”¬Ãº40 and this includes the cost of us transporting you and any kit that you will require for the entire weekend as well as the â”¬Ãº30 ticket that we have to purchase for you to go to this amazing event (it has been heavily subsidised by the club!). The ticket includes a T shirt, a meal on Saturday night, camping and the Ceilidh. So itÃ”Ã‡Ã–s a bargain!
It will be cold though, and a sleeping bag is necessary! The club owns a big Ã”Ã‡Ã¿partyÃ”Ã‡Ã– tent which can fit a lot of people in, so donÃ”Ã‡Ã–t worry if you donÃ”Ã‡Ã–t have your own. Although if you have your own tent then itÃ”Ã‡Ã–s definitely not a bad idea to bring it!
Sign up will go live atâ”¬Ã¡6:30pm on Tuesdayâ”¬Ã¡(21/10/2014) and will be hereâ”¬Ã¡http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/trips/ on our website. If the trip is yet to open when you log in just refresh like a mad man until it opens to make sure you secure your place. This trip is one of the most popular trips of the year and considering the demand for fresherÃ”Ã‡Ã–s trip this year, I expect this year to be super popular so make sure youÃ”Ã‡Ã–re ready to sign up as soon as it goes live! Sign ups will close at midday on Thursday. Confirmation emails to the successful ones will hopefully go out on Friday.
The organisers of the event need to be told ASAP if there are any dietary needs for the meal on Saturday so if you have any (allergies, veggie etc) then please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let me know this once you have signed up.
If youÃ”Ã‡Ã–re yet to make an account on the website (make sure you do this before you try to sign up) then see the guide here: http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/register/
Lots of Love,
