Give Blood!

Posted by: Gregory

Wednesday Week 4, Term 3 (elsewise known as Wednesday 16th May 2012), Canoe and Canoe Polo will descend upon Leamington and give away pints rather than receive them. I am (unfortunately) referring to pints of BLOOD, not Alcohol.

So if your able to Give Blood

1) Go to

2) Search CV32 4HN

3) Book into LEAMINGTON SPA ROYAL SPA CENTRE (on the 16th May) for 7pm +/- 30 minutes, 7:30pm is the latest they will accept appointments.


Also, if you can't/don't want to give blood, don't worry - Please still come as emotional support for those who are and we will then probably go somewhere for food and (not necessarily Alcoholic) drinks.

Book your appointment NOW, don't rely on being able to show up on the night, the times I've been there before, they have been full in advance.

If you happen to be O- or B- please do this, the NHS have put out a special appeal for such donors.

Chris Eastabrook is running a white water safety and rescue course especially for us, which is a really flexible course, beneficial for maximising white water skills.  The course dates would be 9th-11th April.  Its £130.00 per person, but if you are not a finalist half of it can be claimed back from Warwick sport.  This is really good opportunity for some advanced training. Signup before this Friday to register interest.

Sign up can be found here.

So, only one more week of lectures before you're all free for a wonderful 5 weeks of sleeping, eating and avoiding revision (and tour of course). Before you go though, we've got one more social planned: Laser Quest.

So, the stuff you need to know: it'll be at Laser Quest Coventry (, starting at 7pm and will cost just £10 for 4 games. If you're coming from campus then meet at the arts centre bus stop at quarter past 6 to get the bus (someone will also be able to direct you when you get off the bus in Coventry). Alternatively just meet us down there. Please sign up on the website if you're coming so we can let the place know numbers. Chances are we'll head to a pub afterwards, any suggestions of where you want to go are welcome.

What's that you said Barney?

Please dont be put off that it is an A team tournament playing other unis will only make you better at polo and think of the scum we let into our A team!

Pub Golf

Ladies and Gentlemen, This Friday will see the return of Canoe Pub Golf. The rules are simple; we will be visiting 9 pubs. At each pub you will be instructed to buy a certain drink. You will then attempt to see this drink off in as few attempts as possible, i.e. downing the whole thing in one will be a hole in one, each additional attempt will add one onto your score for that pub. Record your scores because come the end of the evening you have a chance of winning the greatest prize of all (pride). This year there will be 3 courses, you can choose one or switch between them: The extreme course: for those who think they can handle it. We advise against planning anything for Saturday morning The "ladies" course: basically the extreme course halved: pints become half-pints, large glasses small glasses and doubles singles. The non-alcoholic course: for those who do not wish to drink alcohol but still want to enjoy all the fun of the evening. Fancy dress is mandatory! This year the theme is Medieval: first years will be faarm animals, second years peasants, third years will come as clergymen/women and 4th years as members of the nobility. People who have graduated, you will be joining us as monarchs. We will meet at 7pm in The Dirty Duck for our first stop before heading to Leamington, so don't be late! Love, your social sex

holiday polo - please read!

Hello polo obsessed people,

I am about to book our normal holiday polo session (Wednesdays 8-9:30).
But, it's all different now... since BUCS is at the end of the holidays I was originally going to ask for more sessions in the final week before BUCS but Madi suggested that having two sessions a week for the entire holidays might be a better idea. So please get posting here if you are around during the holidays so I can justify another weekly session (hopefully...)

Hi-vis Pop

With the weeks of term rocketing past at an alarming rate, we only have time for just one more pop before easter, so get your ticket now and come join us on Wednesday. The theme this week will be Hi-vis: bring your fluorescent jackets, body paint and brightly coloured outfits because we're going to light that place up like it's a construction workers rave. Time and place are as usual, 7pm on a Wednesday in the copper rooms, where we will bring you the usual manic and ridiculous games before dancing it up from 10pm. There will be punishments for those not in costume or who arrive late - we want to get the circle going as early as possible. Of course if you've been at the pool session you're welcome to join us after, just look for the very visible group and be prepared to do some catching up. See you all Wednesday!
