Fancy being a part of Warwick Canoe history? Warwick Canoe are going to the Lake District for the first time in years. Since Refreshers was cancelled due to poor weather, this is the best oppurtunity to get an introduction into whitewater this year. So get on it! When? The weekend of week 4, i.e. 1st - 3rd February. Leaving Friday evening returning Sunday. Where? Lake District. Idiot, it's in the title. Who? Everyone, from novice to these lasses: http://vimeo.com/57485367 (Note, paddling will be distinctly more tame then in this video) The price will be somewhere in the region of £35-40, depending on numbers. How do I sign up for this magical adventure? Sign up is already open, here: http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/trips/trip/263/ Remember our motto; trample the weak, hurdle the dead. Skremos

BUCS Canoe Slalom

Hi, BUCS Canoe Slalom is fast approaching and is once again being held at the tees barrage white water course up in Teeside. The dates of this are the 15th -17th February which is the weekend at the end of week 6. As this is a BUCS trip this is generously subsidised from the university meaning we only need to pay for part of the accommodation and all the transport is subsidised. The exact cost of the weekend will depend on numbers but should be no more than £15 (getting cheaper the more people we have), plus any food and drink that you need for the weekend. This is open to people of any experience and is good fun from what I have been told about it. A sign up is now live on the website if you want to go and I need to have entries in by the 29th January so please sign up on the website before then.

Second Years: Red Indians
Third years: Builders
4th year/masters: Policeman

Thursday Canoe Session

Today's canoe session will be running as normal. Sorry for the lack of email, but Warwick Sport doesn't seem to feel like delivering them today.

Real Ale

Not to steal the thunder from our lovely social secs but Real Ale will be in mid Feb. If you want to serve at the festival I would sign up very soon. The Canoe club normally go on the Thur to see THE DR! ...so prob wouldn't serve on that day.

The perks are quite reasonable:

As most of you should know by now, in the middle of February, Warwick Real Ale Society hold our annual beer festival on campus. The festival runs from Thursday the 14th of February to Saturday the 16th (Reading Week/Week 6). This is one of the highlights of the student calendar and is a great experience for all involved. We are currently looking for people to serve behind the bar at the festival for this year, hoping for about 20 on each of the 3 nights. Servers will also be expected to help with either the setup on the Monday or takedown on the Sunday.

We offer quite a few perks to servers, not only do you get a free rugby shirt (given to you on the night you serve), but you also get free entry on all nights of the festival and the opportunity to come on (a subsidised) tour with us the summer. Last yearÔÇÖs tour to Budapest was amazing, just as an indicator. Not only that, but in the more immediate term, on the wednesday before the festival, servers can come along to a free tasting of the beer at the festival. Based on past experience, there will be a LOT of beer going around.

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

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

TTFN
