Medium-Core Tour!?!?

Evening Munchkins!!!

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.

Fireworks

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 £5. 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!

Love,

Your social sex

Gear Trip + Curry

Howdy canoe-folk,

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!


Lots of Social love

Afternoon Paddlers! This Wednesday we'll be bringing you our first circle of the year at pop. Come down to the Union this Wednesday at 7pm sharp and for those who haven't been before we'll introduce you to some of the wonderful games of Warwick canoe. Cheesy music and extreme disco dancing will follow this. Our fancy dress theme is going to be Cops and Robbers: if you are a Fresher (or just new to the club) please come as a robber, if you are an older member come dressed as a cop. We'll be placing each robber in the custody of one of the cops so you'll all get to know at least one face in the canoe club. Buy your tickets now from the SU website before they sell out as this is going to be a social not to miss! Your Social Secs
