Happy New Year everyone!<br>

<br><br>

Refreshers trip is on it's way. Since you probably skim read these emails now, I'll skip to the facts:<br>

<br>

Weekend of Week 2 (18th - 20th Jan). Leaving Friday afternoon returning Sunday evening.<br>

Location North Wales<br>

Paddling 2 days of beginner level whitewater and getting very messy in the evenings, i.e. this trip is suitable for everyone. Remember we ask everyone to have been on at least 1 trip before going on Scotland tour, this is the perfect oppurtunity.<br>

Price will be around £35 based on number of people.<br>

Signup will go up at 4pm tomorrow (Tuesday 8th Jan). Unless I forget. Deal with it.<br>

Polo Debt Collecting :/

Okay so I've been doing some maths and worked out how much each of you owe the club for entry fees and transport from last term's polo... I have a spreadsheet with it all worked out but have no idea how to get that on here so if you want it broken down then ask me after polo next week but the general amounts are formed from ULU: £6.50 entry and £6 transport, National League: £11 total and Cheltenham £10 total.
Please bring me the money in the first week of term so I don't have to chase you all around for ages :D I really don't need anymore skeletons in my closet... And if you're super lucky I may even bring cake of some sort - but only for the people who bring money in the first week :P So this is what you need to bring:

Einstein 17.5 PGL 6.5 Chloe 23.5 Bryce 23.5 Potter 12.5 Eugene 23.5 Deller 12.5 Red 23.5 Jevon 12.5 Abi 22.5 Mark 12.5 James 23.5 Madi 16 Jo 17 Katie 10 Caroline 10 Darling 11 Baby 11 Anja 11 Nathaniel 11

Wooooo Socials :D :D :D

Sooo as I hope you've all realised by now.... Paint Party tickets are on sale NOW :D :D :D

On the night we will be circling at Gregs house in Canley (where fireworks were held) from 9pm... if you don't know where it is then Katie will meet you at the Sport's Centre at 8:45 :) Remember to wear clothes that you don't mind getting paint splatters on (it normally washes out of my dark jeans but no promises) and think about shoes as well :D

Also a reminder to those giving blood... it's next Thursday :) I think most people are meeting at six and then when you finish you can all head to Spoons for a well-deserved meal out :D

P A I N T    P A R T Y   :D

Tickets aren't on sale yet but when they are they will sell out VERY QUICKLY so if you don't want to miss out then look out on the SU website, but I'll post a reminder with more details when they are on sale :)
Last year tickets went on sale at 9am on the first day of term (Monday) and were sold out by the end of that day so don't take the warning lightly!!! At the moment I'm asssuming tickets will go on sale at 9am again on Monday so it may be worth a look if you want to come :)

Hello People!!

Jealous of all the club hoodies that you see people wearing around? Or looking to replace your currently broken / thrashed after too many drunken night out hoodie? Your chance is here!!

The Canoe Polo Club will be ordering hoodies in the first week of next term BUT before we order our hoodies...we are having our annual DESIGN THE CLUB HOODIE COMPETITION. SO how does it work? Simple, just follow these instructions:
1. Think of a really awesome hoodie design, preferably single coloured!
2. Put it in a .jpeg, .pdf file
3. Send it to Bryce at the club secretary's email (found on the exec page)
4. If we like your's the most, we'll print it on the hoodie!

What do you get out of it?
Other than having your design printed on the club hoodie, you get your's completely absolutely FREE

SOOO get you brains cracking and have some artistic fun this holidays!!
Merry Christmas to all and hope everyone has an awesome holiday (:

Jackets 2012

Feeling cold? Alone? Afraid? Sexually humiliated? Of course you are. Look at you, in your very average outerwear. That fashionable coat couldn't withstand a slight draft. No wonder you're a gibbering wreck. Don't worry - as ever the Canoe Club has come to your aid. Each year we buy Montane Extreme Smocks to repel that harsh winter. It's a trade secret what they're made of, but it's probably unicorn feathers or something to be quite so good. Not only that, they're incredibly windproof and unlike nearly every other jacket on the market are 100% effective when soaked. Some members have even swam in them and say they still retain their properties (this makes them excellent for pulling over wet kit and keeping you warm between polo matches etc). The website is here: http://www.montane.co.uk/products/men/extreme/extreme-smock/99 The price is £91. I know this is steep, but it is the warmest thing you can own and, treated well, will last the rest of your life. They come in Blue, Red, Black and Green. One of the colours is for people who like BDSM, but I wont tell you which. Sizes are fairly standard (Small - XXLarge). Older chaps and chappettes will be wearing theirs around for sizing (I'll be wearing my medium to Christmas Meal tonight). To place an order, go to this page: http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/jackets/ The deadline for an order is 2nd January. See you at the Christmas Meal! Skrummer

Dates - Scotland Tour

Hello people of Warwick Canoe, It has come to my attention that some of you may have recently laid your eyes on Brice dancing the Tango. I would therefore like to cheer you up by bringing the thought of Scotland Tour to your attention. For those of you who dont know, Scotland Tour is our yearly tour, which happens in the Easter holidays. Recent tours have included emotional hangovers, crashing university vehicles, a naked chair, ketchup-covered bodies and certain events that must never be mentioned again that have mentally scarred myselfoh yea and some kayaking. I would thus like to invite you to keep the dates from Saturday 16th March to Sunday 24th March free. This is the first week of the Easter holidays. I would like to thank everyone who expressed their opinion regarding their preference of the dates of tour and apologise to those who have been disappointed. The decision was a unanimous exec decision (arse covering = tick). That is all for now See you all at POP tomorrow LG

Good evening!

We're heading to POP Wednesday week 9 to circle for the last time this term! You have been warned before, but if you still don't have your ticket then GET ON IT! 7pm at the Union in SUPERHERO FANCY DRESS! Or supervillan if you're that way inclined. Or postman pat if you had a deprived childhood. 

Another reminder of Bryce's tango the day before, get your tickets from the SU website and meeting in the duck at 6 for some pre drinks (and im sure there will be post drinks too)

Super Love

Batman and Robbin xx

(PS: that was a subtle hint for no one else to dress up as batman and/or robbin)
