The moment you've all been waiting for...
The first weekend away with Warwick Canoe looms. You may be sick of us oldies bang on about it, but that's because it never fails to be a legendary trip and is so good it will define your life thus far.
It is a trip to South Wales for a whole weekend to sample some easy whitewater. All are welcome, from complete beginners to whitewater pros, but the trip is aimed at newbies to the club, but if you're even remotely interested, put your name down.
The trip is on the weekend of week 3, leaving on the afternoon 19th October and returning 21st October in the evening. We'll stay at a bunkhouse for both nights â”¬Ã¡and venture out to the rivers during the day. We'll provide all the paddling kit you need, but if you have your own feel free to bring it.â”¬Ã¡
The price will be â”¬Ãº35 for transport and accomodation, we will also organise a group meal which will cost something in the region of â”¬Ãº2-3, but will be optional.
How do I sign up?
Firstly - you must be a member of the club and have attended a pool session.â”¬Ã¡
Secondly - Make an account on the website (if you have not already done so). I'd suggest doing this now rather then tomorrow. There is a guide here:â”¬Ã¡http://www.warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/login/
Finally - Be on this web page at 4pm tomorrow. A trip called "Freshers Trip" will appear under future trips and be available to sign up for. Simply fill in your details and click sign up. Done.
If you have any problems or queries email me or any other members of the exec.
Slight essay, but itÃ”Ã‡Ã–s all important stuff!
Firstly this Thursday (11th) weÃ”Ã‡Ã–re going to Varsity (on Campus) for some food and beverages, probably ending up in Kelseys. Table is booked for 6pm but IÃ”Ã‡Ã–ll be getting there about half 5 because IÃ”Ã‡Ã–m super keen. If you could leave a comment on the website or something to let me know if youÃ”Ã‡Ã–re coming so I can warn Varsity.
Secondly this Saturday (13th) weÃ”Ã‡Ã–ve got a trip to the massively dangerous (jokes, itÃ”Ã‡Ã–s totally flat) river Leam. ItÃ”Ã‡Ã–s great for fresherÃ”Ã‡Ã–s who havenÃ”Ã‡Ã–t been kayaking much before to get used to being fully kitted up and on a river. For those of you living on campus meet at 10am at the sports centre and for people who live in Leamington meet at about half 11 at Leam Boat Centre in Jefferson Gardens. You can sign up to this on the website (http://warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/trips/ Leam Trip, NOT Leam training).
Thirdly our week 3 social, the WANK Challenges (Warwick Association of Noble Kayakers, obviously) will be on Wednesday (17th). Meet at Varsity again at 7pm for a fun filled evening before heading to pop (so get your tickets now! Not circling tickets, just normal ones). Also the dress code is a plain white t-shirt that you donÃ”Ã‡Ã–t mind getting ruined and bring some marker pens!
Finally WeÃ”Ã‡Ã–ll be circling week 4, but IÃ”Ã‡Ã–ll send out more details in another email next week because most of you probably stopped reading .
