Hi everyone,
 
This Friday we will be hosting a tactics and rules talk at 7-8pm in S0.20. There will be snacks there for everyone to enjoy. After the talk, we will be going to the pool session to put the tactics into practice. We will also be looking at the changes to the rules that have come into place recently.
 
If you can't make the session, do not worry! We will be recording the session and will make it available to everyone.
 
Polo love,
Dan and all the exec

🍻🍏Real Ale Festival ~ Week 6 social🍏🍻

Posted 9mth 25d ago by Beth Hudson

Warwick Real Ale Festival returns (at last) on Thursday 17th February to fill the Copper Rooms once again with a huge variety of beers, ales, ciders and more!! The Festival also has many vegan, gluten-free, and 0% alcohol options.

We will be meeting in the Duck from 5pm and then heading into the festival from about 6:30pm.

For those who have never been before, the Festival is a cash only event and has a £3.50 entry fee, once you're in you can buy tokens from Reception (these are essentially monopoly money). Inside the copper rooms there are a variety of bars (not the usual Pop bars, they build their own) at which you can exchange tokens for drinks or food (vegan and vegetarian food is available). You can also buy merchandise (novelty pint glasses, silly hats, etc.) from the reception with cash. I highly recommend purchasing a pint glass!! There will also be live music every night.

As for pricing, it is cheaper than the Duck!

Please press 'going' on the event if you plan on joining us (especially as we will all get a discount if we go as a group 🤩) and we hope to see many of you lot there! https://fb.me/e/1a4MgUPbe

For Scotland and Surf we bulk buy different Lilley's Cider flavours so I strongly recommend trying a few flavours at the festival to learn what you like ~ Bee Sting is a personal favourite 🐝🍏

Social love,
Beth and Adi x

Morning all, just letting you all know that we have re-opened signups until the 12th as we wanted to make sure everyone who wanted to come can sign up, although we can't necessarily guarantee everyone a place, we'll do our best to bring as many people as possible.
We're also now planning on staying in an AirBnB, so we will no longer be camping🥳🥳. This likely will increase the cost of the trip by around £30 depending on numbers, but it should be much more fun, not to mention a lot warmer.

Scotland Hypemas Day 6

Posted 9mth 28d ago by Dan Collier

Evening paddlers,

The final reason to come on this trip is that you will get to use the same boat for the entire trip! This will give you the chance to work on your paddling skills and no more having to adjust the fitting each morning.

Scotland Hypemas Day 5

Posted 9mth 28d ago by Dan Collier

Good evening paddlers (attempts to do a Scottish accent),

The fifth reason to come on this trip is the river Etive. This is one of the best rivers and lots of boaters want to paddle this. We will hopefully get to paddle this amazing 2.5km of drops and waterfalls. This river will be one to remember.

If you haven’t had enough, here is another video for you: https://youtu.be/nRGy5p_d88M
