Hey Everyone!

Next week on Thursday (24th October) we will be heading for our annual trip to Leam Boat Centre and afterwards we will go to 39 Gordon Street for some cocktails.

We'll be leaving campus from the bus interchange around 19:00 as usual, look out for some exec members.

The cost for this social will be either £5 for cocktails or £3 for mocktails, there will be an open bar for the night so the cost is for the evening, not per drink.

For this trip you'll need to sign up, just like a trip on the website:
Alcoholic Signups: https://warwickcanoe.uk/site/trips/trip/554/
Non-Alcoholic Signups: https://warwickcanoe.uk/site/trips/trip/555/

To pay, either pay me or Cameron in person, or use this handy-dandy link: https://paypal.me/pools/c/8fnWEZLrMO

Sup paddlers!

It’s been so good to see all the new faces at our taster sessions so far. There’s still another week of completely free sessions so come on down when you can!

But now it's time to start introducing you to moving water! Next weekend, 18th – 20th October (end of week 3), we will be heading to North Wales for two days of brilliant paddling, departing on Friday evening. It promises to be a great weekend and is a fantastic place to start your whitewater journey. Don’t worry if you’ve never paddled outside before, this trip is geared towards beginners! 

Signups open this Thursday at 12:00 so make sure you head over to warwickcanoe.uk/site/trips to sign up. It’s best to have made your account in advance as places go fast!

Remember you have to have come along to at least one pool session, though we recommend coming to more before yougo. The trip itself will cost £29.10, which includes everything you need for the weekend except your food and off-river clothing. You also must have bought club membership by then which can be found at: https://www.warwicksu.com/societies-sports/sports-clubs/.

WWSR Term 1

Posted 1y 3mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Dan

Hi Everyone

I hope everyone’s having a good summer break,

As Coach I’m in the process of organising a WWSR (White Water Safety and Rescue) course that will run at some point in mid to late term 1. This trip will teach you all about rescuing and safety on the river so is perfect if you’re interested in the leadership side of things, or if you just fancy throw lining the exec when we swim. This is also a good course to make you feel more comfortable in moving water as you get to practice important skills such as defensive swimming and chase boating.

For more information on WWSR please visit:

https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/courses/white-water-safety-and-rescue-training

This will be a two-day trip during a weekend and is likely to cost around £80. This will depend on things like the transport available.

I want to see how many people are interested in attending, so that we know we have enough people to run the trip. If people could email or message me to say they’re interested that would be great. If you have any questions, feel free to email me too.

My Email: coach@warwickcanoe.co.uk

(Registering your interest does not guarantee you will be on the trip and doesn’t mean you have to go)

Canoe Love
