Raft Building

Hi again, Since the weather is so nice and many of us are done with exams (sorry if you're not yet) we'll be doing a social that's a bit different next Thursday. We'll be heading down to Leam Boat Centre, where we'll have a load of barrels, poles and ropes to build into rafts. Two teams will compete to build the best raft and then race down the River Leam to see who can paddle their raft the fastest without meeting a watery ending. See http://warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/photos/canoe/43/ for an example of what this is like. We'll be meeting at Leam Boat centre at around 1:30 (campus/coventry folk should get the bus around 1). The cost will be £10 per head which will get us all the equipment and an afternoons playtime. Please sign up if you're coming since I need to know roughly numbers in advance (chunder)Dave

Surf Trip Details

Sorry about the confusion regarding payment deadlines for summer surf trip. Here is the final details for payments. If you are going in the Tardis with Mark, please pay him £15 directly. This will be the people who signed up for the evening mini bus as there were not enough people signed up to make this viable. The link for the payment for the minibus is: http://www.warwicksu.com/shop/product/10059120/ Please pay ASAP for the minibus. Payments for t-shirts are to be paid in cash to Greg when possible, he is now in the library/ campus most days. They are £7.40. Money for camping should also be paid in cash to Greg before the trip if possible - it is £5 per person per night. If there are still any outstanding payments please pay before the trip. Cheers :)

Epic Party!

It's what you've all been waiting for... we are pleased to announce that Epic Party will be returning this year on Wednesday the 29th June (Week 10 for those of you still on campus time).

You are cordially invited to enjoy an evening of food, drink (both provided) and fun (bring along yourself) with your fellow Canoe and Canoe Polo compatriots. Also there will be a bouncy castle. And possibly Croquet.

The details:

This will all be taking place at Leamington Rugby Club (on the road leaving Leamington to the north, look to your right). Tickets will be £26 for everything, which should be paid in cash to Greg before the event. Dress will be formal, black tie and dresses (or as close as you can get).

Sign up is now open, so get yourself on to the website because this party promises to be exactly what its name suggests: epic!

National League

We need to enter our teams for National League, so if you're up for it, please go and signup.

Same format as last year, so there will be 4 tournaments; 2 before Christmas and 2 after Christmas (2nd Term and Easter Hols at the latest). Costs vary slightly, but were less than £20 a tournament last year and the club is subsidising transport this year. (£70 Tournament Fee + Transport)

Next year's A Team, we would like to enter you as a team if enough of the team signup. We would also like to enter another team. There is a mix of abilities in the league and it varies from beginners to approximately A Team standard.

You should be a BCU member to play, but you can delay this until September. You will need to join Canoe Polo next year, but you're all going to do that anyway!

Any questions, ask! Got exams over the next couple of weeks, but I tend to procrastinate enough to answer emails!

It's Friday, Friday. Gotta get down on Friday! Ok, i'll stop being annoying. Nene trip. Tuesday week 9. (21st June). We will have 2 hours of exclusive use of the course, all paid for by our grant money. So all we will need to pay for is transport. Price TBC dependant on number of people signing up. Meeting on campus at about 11:30am and returning by 6pm. Please sign up so I don't have to go by myself. Signup closes Monday 5pm so I can arrange transport. You are welcome to signup after this, but no guarantee of car space for you. Although I guess we could always put you in the back of the van...

Hi, So Summer Surf Trip is fast approaching as soon as exams are over (yay). It is running from Friday 24th to Monday 27th of June at Newgale Campsite in Pembrokeshire. There will be two minibuses going up on the Friday, one in the morning and one in the evening. Both will be coming back on the Monday evening. 

Cost of transport is £15 per person and this is to be paid via the online payment system. 

Camping is £15 and this is to be paid to Greg IN CASH before leaving for the trip. Even if you are taking your own transport this money should still be given to Greg beforehand. 

There will also be a separate online payment for the t-shirts and a form to fill in with what size t-shirt you want.

For all of this there will be a series of signups going up on the website as follows and sign ups will go up at 5pm this evening (Tuesday 24th)

Surf Trip General sign up -  Sign up if you will be on surf trip regardless of how you are intending on getting there and how long you are staying. 

T-Shirt sign up -     Sign up if you want a surf trip T-shirt. 

Friday Morning Bus -  â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡      Sign up for a place on the Friday morning bus. 

Friday Evening Bus -    Sign up for a place on the Friday evening bus. 

Sign ups will close on the 1st June. Payment closes on the 8th June. If there are any outstanding payments you will not get a place on the trip until you are all paid up, including the cost of this trip. 

I think that was everything....

Doggy Paddle

Posted 11y 0mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Scamrass
Sunday 22nd May sees the return of the Doggy Paddle. This involves many many paddlers meeting up and kayaking/canoeing the 18 miles from Leamington to Stratford. Largely a flatwater paddle, with a few weirs and a couple of compulsory portages. Beer is often close to hand (in buoyancy aid pocket?), just showing the relaxed nature of the day. It's an event held to raise money for the guide dog's association and as such it comes with a reasonable £10 entry fee. Transport costs will be worked out when we know numbers, Beer is often close to hand (in buoyancy aid pocket?), just showing the relaxed nature of the day. It could be a great opportunity to take the duo or the open canoe! Please signup as soon as possible so I can sort out drivers and logistics. Any questions, just SHOUT. Look forward to seeing everyone dressed to impress tonight.
