Canoe Logo Competition!

Posted by: Becky

I'm sure you've all seen the awesome 'Who Dares Swims' logo on the back of the canoe hoodies by now, but this has been around for many years and so now we are looking for something new...

 

We are running a competition for a new canoe logo, the winner shall receive a fabulous hoody for free!!

 

Keep it fairly simple, remember that it has to be printed onto hoodies all in one colour  and that it must  include the words 'Warwick Canoe'.

 

Email entries to r.a.stevens@warwick.ac.uk or hand any paper copies to me or any of the exec that you trust!

Deadline:  Sunday 29th Jan

 

Good luck and get creative!

Becky :)

Hi all, cheers for making Friday loads of fun, we hope you all enjoyed it too. We've got loads of great social this term which are now all on the calendar for you to look at, but we thought we'd give you a heads up on the next couple. THIS THURSDAY we will be currying at Millennium Baltic in Leamington Spa from 7:30 (busses from campus at around 7. We'll be taking advantage of the excellent food and cheap cheap drinks there before going off to a few of Leamington's fine establishments (and Kelseys) finishing in evolve if people are up for it. WEDNESDAY WEEK 3 we will be heading to our first Pop social of term and it is going to be a cracking one we promise. Our fancy dress theme will be ROMANS and in keeping with this we will be attempting to get as many members of the club as possible to complete a centurion. (that's 100 shots of beer/cider/water, one a minute for 100 minutes). Buy your circling tickets in advance now from the SU website. Lots of love, Your social sex

Wednesday Session Cancelled (Canoe)

Hi all, Just to let you know, there will be no Canoe pool session this Wednesday evening (I believe Polo may be running a session instead). This is because we are instead going to the Nene on Wednesday afternoon. If you haven't yet signed up for this but would like to go then there are still a few places left on this trip, sign up on our website as normal. Cost will be no more than £10, we will be meeting at 11 to pack boats and leaving at 12 (so those with lectures until then can still go) returning to campus for around 6. See you then!

Friday Social

Start of term getting you down?

Worry not, this Friday will be our first social of the term... (applause) ... and we'll be having a campus wide scavenger hunt so bring along a coat!

Meet in the Duck at 8 and we'll sort you out into a few teams (possibly named after sexual animals) and send you off into the night at around 8:30. At 10pm we'll meet back and the winners will be chosen (and receive their prize). Afterwards you can enjoy the sorely missed company of your canoe friends and the lovely beverages of the Dirty Duck for a while. Then it's on to Top B to get our dance on :)

See you there!

Nene Whitewater Course

Welcome back lovely paddling people. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and new year.

Many of you may be feeling rusty after 4 weeks of stuffing your face with delicious Christmas food and just can't wait to get back on the water. Or maybe you're new to this whole white water lark and want to give it a go somewhere safe and fun?

If this is you then we have just the remedy - on Wednesday week 2 (that's the 18th for those on real time still) we'll be heading to the Nene Whitewater Centre for an afternoon of paddling. It's a great safe place to work on confidence and skills for people of all different abilities: only a short distance away from us, with no nasty long walks dragging boats, plus you will be supervised by a BCU level 2 coach.

Signup will open this Wednesday at 6pm. On the day we will be meeting at 11pm, getting to the centre by about 1. We have an exclusive booking of the course from 2 until 4, and will be returning to campus for 6 o clock.

BUCS Slalom

BUCS Canoe Slalom will soon be here. The dates are 18th/19th Feb so weekend of the 6th week of this term, Weeks 16/20 depending on which university calendar you use.

As this is a BUCS trip this is a CHEAPER TRIP than normal as the university will pay for transport and accommodation - you need only pay for food and booze.

A sign up will be up in the next few hours and sign up quickly so we can get a cheap hotel as oppose to going camping.

Your Loving Coach

Admiral Bryce

Hello Christmas Elves!
Now I hope you all are exciting about the Christmas meal tonight, or if you are reading this tomorrow that you are suitably still full/ hungover. Either way there is still one more thing you can do canoe related this term... Its the amazing canoe feeback survey found HERE:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dGN0eUdVX1RjYXZrMXkyUTJtNG85aHc6MQ
We want to know the good, the bad and the ugly of  the canoe club! What do YOU think about the club? Is it amazing or is it downright abysmal!
Freshers we are particularly looking at you, you are our future (scary thoughts)! and it seems so long ago the exec were in your position we really value your views!
So everyone if you could take 5 minutes to fill it in we would be very grateful and hopefully you will get an even better club out of it!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

It's getting to that time of year when you really can't be arsed with work... So, to top off a great weekend of Polo, we will be having our first RAGE! Tournament of the year.

Freshers, this is an internal tournament we run on a Tuesday night. Most people make an effort to turn up and it's great fun! The teams will be mixed ability, so don't worry about being beaten by the A team.

What: RAGE! Tournament
When: 6th December 2011, 19:15 - 21:30

What do I have to do to play? Go to the website, click Trips on the left hand side and sign up under "RAGE! Tournament Winter 2011". If you have any problems, email me! If people just turn up, there is no guarentee you'll get a game.

Any questions, let me know! We'll probably pick teams on Sunday during some down time, so please sign up by Saturday evening - not sure how many teams there will be yet. Probably 4.

And now, for the moment you've all been waiting for... The ordering of the awesome canoe jackets.

 

I'm sure by now you've all seen older members of the club wearing the black jackets, however you get the opportunity to choose from a range of colours - black, olive, Moroccan blue and red. (See them here: http://www.montane.co.uk/products/men/extreme/extreme-smock/99 )

 

Like last year, the jackets will have 'WARWICK CANOE' printed on the back, 'www.canoekayaktrader.co.uk'  on the bottom of the back and your choice of name stitched on front left side, all in white.

 

One of these snugly warm jackets can be yours for only £73.

 

For now all you need to do is post below or email me (r.a.stevens@warwick.ac.uk) the follow details (payment will be sorted out later):

 

The name you would like on your jacket

 

Colour

 

Size
