Doggy Paddle

Posted 10y 0mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Gregory

Hey Boys 'n' Girls,

Sunday Week 3, or Sunday 13th May for those who shun the Warwick Week system, sees the return of Doggy Paddle.

Doggy Paddle is a yearly event in which canoeist of all ages paddle the 18 miles from Leamington to Stratford to raise money for the guide dog's association.

It's a largely flatwater paddle, with a few weirs and one compulsory portages (around the trebuchet of DEATH!!!)

Beverage is often close to hand in an buoyancy aid pocket (Although I could not possible condone an alcoholic beverage being consumed on this day trip)

It's a relaxing, fun break from Exam/Revision stress and a great opportunity to take the duo or the open!

The Cost:

  • £10 in entry fees which goes straight to the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.
  • Final transport costs will be worked out when we know numbers, but I will be very shocked if it works out at more than £5 each.

Sign up is on the website now, please sign up asap so we can finalize transport arrangements.

Hugs and Kisses
Gregory

Rage League

Posted 10y 1mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Einstein

Hey

After an excellent performance at BUCS this weekend it's time to start thinking about our yearly rage league. We sort 4 teams based on how you rate eachother as players so that the teams are as even as possible and people of all abilities can play, then each team plays one game a week as part of the league, with the other games in the session being just for fun. We will also be doing a fantasy polo league where you get a certain amount of money with which to buy players who get points for goals, saves, assists etc, but I'll give you more details on that when I know who's playing. If you want to play in the league please sign up on the website. It doesn't matter if you can't make some of the weeks as there will probably be 6 weeks worth of matches, but don't sign up if you're going to be away all term as there will be games for people not playing in the league. I'll be starting to sort out teams this weekend, so if you could sign up by Thursday evening please that would be great.#

Any questions email me at r.a.beckett@warwick.ac.uk
