After the fantastic trips we've had so far this term, the next one is almost upon us.â”¬Ã¡
We'll be heading to Dartmoor on Fri 18th November and returning on the Sunday. This is a joint trip between the uni club and lots of old gits who have left the club, we're hoping there'll be loads of us staying at a scouthut for an awesome social and then paddling on Saturday and Sunday. There'll also be some presentations from ex and current members of the club on some of the trips they've been on, including New Zealand, Sweden and India among others, with some kind of drinking games associated with them.â”¬Ã¡
This should be a brilliant trip with loads of people and a great chance to get to know some of the ex members of the club or see some old friends you haven't seen for years., and is open to anyone, with posslible opportunities to paddle a variety of rivers or go walking depending on weather conditions.
Sign up will go up at about 1800 tomorrow (Thursday) on the website. If anyone is still having trouble with the website please email me before then at email@example.com, though I cant promise I'll be able to do anything though.
So, it appears that everyone survived last nights fireworks with one rather unfortunate tree the only casualty.
Of course this means you\'re now all around for this weeks social at pop (death is of course the only valid excuse for non-attendance). This week our theme is circus: an apt description for this club I think. Be there on Wednesday at 7 in fancy dress and don\'t forget to buy your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
See you there!
I have a very important question for y'all! Would you like to spice up your xmas break with a bit of paddling? Well if the answer is yes, then reply to this email or post on the forum to express your interest!
Generally the canoe club goes on a hard-core tour over New Years and then the AWESOME Scotland tour over Easter (Details of which will come later). Last year there was lack of demand which makes tour sec's sad. So this year we are proposing a medium-core tour probably over new years for an uncertain number of days, somewhere in wild Wales. This means you have the opportunity to decide what you want. Yayyyyy!!!
If you are unsure whether you would be good enough for such a trip, ask an exec member or just express your interest and we can let you know!
Disclaimer: this is not signing up or commiting for the trip just expressing interest that you might like to go if there was one.
Hey lovely canoe/polo people.
I hope you're all thrilled about Tyne tour. If you're not going however don't worry, you're still going to have an awesome week. Because this week is the week of canoe club fireworks!
This year we are being hosted by our very own president Alice and her erstwhile treasurer Greg at their house in Canley. So, meet us on campus outside the sports centre at 7pm on Thursday and we'll walk over together, starting the fireworks at around 7:30. Anyone arriving late who needs directions or just feels a little lonely can as ever call me on oh7903195oh41.
As a contribution to the fantastic display we'll be putting on we ask that you all bring â”¬Ãº5. And don't forget to bring some beverages (tesco is right across the road though). Afterwards we'll probably take a bus over to Leamington and continue the night in the one and only Kelseys. See you all Thursday!
Your social sex
Many of you may have been looking at all of the handsome older canoe members in their sexy canoe gear and wondering where one might obtain such dazzling kit. Well on Thursday you will have your very first chance to see as we will be heading down to the boat centre in Leamington Spa. From 5:30pm we will have the whole store to ourself; there are usually refreshments provided, the undivided attention of the excellent staff, experienced club members for further guidance and any purchases will of course be at our 15% club discount.
Any of you at the pool session Thursday should follow Greg afterwards, and any other campus dwellers can meet him and the others at the arts centre bus stop at 5 o clock to ride the bus into Leamington. Those already in Leam can find the address at
To celebrate what may be the first proper escape from the bubble for many of you we will then be heading to the nearby Ali's Golden Cuisine curry house at 7:30. As well as serving some excellent curries at a student discount this place allows you to bring your own drinks, so come prepared (or go to the supermarket down the road). Afterwards we'll be heading on to some of Leamingtons fine establishments which you will not want to miss.
See you all on thursday!
