Scotland Hypemas Day 4

Posted 9mth 28d ago by Dan Collier

Hi paddlers,

The next reason for coming on the trip is another off-the-water reason. 

We will be staying in two different bunkhouses across the 10 days. The best bit is that they actually have beds! We will first go to Glenbeg Bunkhouse and then stay at our favourite Great Glen Hostel. 

This year we will also be driving in cars, which means you may get to influence the music your driver plays!

Here's another video for you: https://youtu.be/-TrRSnnH3GA

Scotland Hypemas Day 3

Posted 9mth 28d ago by Dan Collier

Howdy paddlers,

The second reason for coming to Scotland is the chance to get your very own Scotland 2022 t-shirt! These have been created just for you based on the super-secret theme.

There is also the chance to be creative each day as one or more lucky people will get the chance to strawbridge a fellow member. If you are not sure what strawbridges are, have a look below for some inspiration!

Scotland Hypemas Day 2

Posted 9mth 28d ago by Dan Collier

Evening paddlers,

The second reason to come to Scotland is the social night. Whilst each night is Social, one night, in particular, will be a designated social night.

Did someone say social night!! Just what you will want after another day of paddling. 

It is a (semi-)memorable night, with new club stories being created. Social night takes place one night in the second bunkhouse where the club's own-brand eliminator will take you to a whole new dimension. Costumes are mandatory (given the high level of pop costumes over the past year, expectations are high). The tour theme shall be revealed after sign-ups.

Scotland Hypemas Day 1

Posted 9mth 28d ago by Dan Collier

Hypemas Alert!!

Merry Hypemas, may the festivities begin! 

The best reason for coming on this trip are the rivers, where you will get the chance to paddle for 8 days! These rivers will give you a chance to improve your paddling skills while having a great time. 

Last time the club paddled the Findhorn, Spean, Garry, and Etive, and will be looking at paddling these again as well as some new sections!

Scotland 2022

Posted 9mth 28d ago by Dan Collier

Sup paddlers,

You may or may not have heard some of our members talk about a place called Scotland. After a long-awaited 2 years, we will be making our way back up north to some of the country’s most exciting rivers. Over the next week, we will be going through the 6 days of hypemas, giving you many reasons to come on the trip! 

To get your taste buds going each day will include a video from the previous times the club went to Scotland!

The trip will cost £285, which covers travel, accommodation, kit, and a themed t-shirt. You may be asking what the theme is…well it’s up to you to figure that one out.

Sign-ups will take place at 7.55 pm on Monday 14th February. There will be a group of us at the Duck beforehand, so feel free to come along and take part in the chaos that will be sign-ups.

Term 2 Week 3: Circling and Pop!

Posted 10mth 18d ago by Adriana Cormack

Week 3-Circling and Pop 🤩

Happy Monday everyone!!


Next week we will be heading to the copper rooms to go circling and dance the night away to some classic cheesy hits whilst all sporting some brilliant outfits!! 
To attend you will need a Week 3 circling ticket which can be found here: tickets.warwicksu.com or message me or Beth as we have some spares too!
The theme for this week is: PUNS!


I will attach links to some articles to give you an idea of what you might come as! But some ideas may include getting out your old Halloween costume to come as ‘copy cat’ or unveiling your monochrome wardrobe for ‘fifty shades of grey’ it’s up to you! Just be creative- there will be punishments for matching costumes. 


Click going on the event here: https://fb.me/e/1mKi0vAEi to attend!


*please note that this event may be subject to change due to either government or our own guidance! If we deem that the risk of Covid is too high for club members, we may decide to change this event last minute! There is also no obligation to stay for Pop! Everyone is more than welcome to come to circling and leave before Pop begins


Social love,
Adi and Beth
