Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, and Jevon
The first weekend away with Warwick Canoe is almost here!
It is a trip to North Wales for an introduction to white-water kayaking. All are welcome, from complete beginners to white-water pros. All that is required is that youÃ”Ã‡Ã–ve been to at least one pool session.
The trip is on theâ”¬Ã¡weekend of week 3,â”¬Ã¡leaving late afternoonâ”¬Ã¡(around 4pm) on Friday 17th Octoberâ”¬Ã¡and returningâ”¬Ã¡Sunday 19thâ”¬Ã¡in the evening. WeÃ”Ã‡Ã–re staying in a bunk house both nights and will venture out to nearby rivers during the day. We'll provide all the paddling kit you need other than shoes for on the river (old trainers work well), but if you have any of your own kit then feel free to bring it.
We also recommend you bring a waterproof jacket, a sleeping bag (though according to the website we will be provided with covers) and all the warm clothes you can find! If you need any help with bringing these things let us know ASAP and weÃ”Ã‡Ã–ll try and sort you out.
The price will be â”¬Ãº38â”¬Ã¡for transport and accommodation and we will organise a group meal on the Saturday night. IÃ”Ã‡Ã–ve also heard rumours of there being FREE BOOZE that was left over from our end of year partyÃ”Ã‡Âª.
So how do you go about signing up for this wonderful trip?
Firstly - youâ”¬Ã¡must be a member of the club through the Warwick Sport membership systemâ”¬Ã¡andâ”¬Ã¡have attended a pool sessionâ”¬Ã¡(the pool sessions during week 3 will be aimed at preparing you for the weekend, so try to make sure you come along!).
Secondly -â”¬Ã¡Make an account on our websiteâ”¬Ã¡(if you have not already done so). I'd suggest doing this now so you can let us know if you have any problems to ensure youÃ”Ã‡Ã–ll definitely be able to sign up and secure your place. HereÃ”Ã‡Ã–s a link to set up your account:â”¬Ã¡http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/register/ .
Finally -â”¬Ã¡Be onâ”¬Ã¡thisâ”¬Ã¡web page at 5pm tomorrow (Thursday).â”¬Ã¡A trip called Ã”Ã‡Â£FresherÃ”Ã‡Ã–s Trip 2014" will appear under future trips and be available to sign up for. Simply fill in your details and click sign up. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Signups for this trip will close on Monday at 7pm and confirmation emails will go out early on Wednesday to let you know if youÃ”Ã‡Ã–ve got a place. (Unfortunately we are limited to the number of people we can take, so itÃ”Ã‡Ã–s first come first serve).
Once the sign up closes we will send a confirmation email to each lucky paddler that signed up soonest to confirm their place on the trip. If you get a confirmation email you are committed to paying for the trip. In the event that you can no longer go on the trip then email us ASAP and we will try and find someone to take your place. If you are unable to make the trip and you have yet to receive a confirmation email but you have signed up on the Warwick Canoe website then send us an email and we will remove your sign up.
Feel free to ask any questions.
I hope youÃ”Ã‡Ã–ve enjoyed the taster sessions!

Ever had that worrying feeling that your returning to Uni a week early and wont have anything to do. Fear not for I have an exciting oppotunity just for you guys.â”¬Ã¡
This Sunday (21st September) I will be having a big clear out of the Canoe Club Garage at Westword as kit has just been dumped infront of all the boats. I will be there from 10am so if you have a few minutes or hours to spare this Sunday your help would be highly appeciated.â”¬Ã¡
We will be checking equipment and thowing anything out anything which is no longer fit for pourpose, sweaping out the garage and then replacing the kit in a more organised mannor while making sure the nventory records are up to date. All in all im hoping it won't take too long and many hands make light work.â”¬Ã¡
Kind regards from your new Kitlerâ”¬Ã¡
Apologies to those of you to whom this doesnt apply.
This termÃ”Ã‡Ã–s first few socials are all about snatching them young and retaining as many freshers as possibleâ”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡On that note, could I ask everyone to be nice and accepting (you all are anyway, just reminding to learn names and faces and engage with freshers after pool sessions in pub etc)â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡if we could all make a concerted effort to appear friendly juring the first few weeks then, once we have them hooked, you can reveal your ice cold hearts.â”¬Ã¡
Lets attend the duck after every session in the first few weeks (I know this is hard on those from Leam but please try and stay for one drink (soft or real) just so people get to meet you off the waterâ”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡)â”¬Ã¡
The plan so far:
Oldies Social Thursday 2nd 7pm at the Jug in Leam, with an eye on heading to Neon. So please wear decent clothing (jeans not trackies, smartish shoes )
Bar crawl of some description round Leam week 3 thursday
Hi-vis POP! Week 4 (nice and easy to identify everyone) BUY THESE TICKETS QUICK‼! Stating that you are from Ã”Ã‡Ã¿CanoeÃ”Ã‡Ã– pretty please! BUY AWAY! They are selling out fast!
Week 6 fireworks! Venue tbc.
A few non alcky socials dotted around here and there
Timetravel POP! Week 9â”¬Ã¡
With pub sessions after pool sessionsâ”¬Ã¡
cannot emphise enough about the WEEK 4 POP! Ticket purchasing urgency!
Loads of loath,
Social secs Lauren and Jamieâ”¬Ã¡
