The National Student Rodeo 2010 is here!
The largest playboating event in theâ”¬Ã¡country (apparently) returns to destroy our livers and dignity. You might get in a boat, but the onus is definitely on ludicrous costumes and inebriated frivolity. If you're not sure what itÃ”Ã‡Ã–s about check out this video, featuring a cameo byâ”¬Ã¡our own Herr Dunphy, heÃ”Ã‡Ã–s the one looking dazed and confused.
It will be held at Holme Pierrepont in Nottingham, on the 5th - 7th March, and the party theme will be ancient worlds, so think togas and gladiators. Or maybe just turn up naked and call yourself the Statue of David.
Cost will be around â”¬Ãº40 for the weekend, with an extra â”¬Ãº10 for a t-shirt and â”¬Ãº5 for a Ã”Ã‡Â£gourmetÃ”Ã‡Ã˜ burger and pint on the Friday night. Because IÃ”Ã‡Ã–m a simpleton and I wonÃ”Ã‡Ã–t be able to remember who wants what, there will be three sign ups, one for each, so remember to do all of them.
Sign up goes live at 5pm (assuming I remember), so get to it!
It has been decided that this Tuesday we should focus on keeping a strong defence, which is what we will do.
People have different ideas about what defence they like, they are all similar in ways, so we'll try focusing on just one to simplify things, the two and two defence.
then I won't have to explain it toâ”¬Ã¡for the first time on the night, and you can spend less timeâ”¬Ã¡thinking "This is rubbish, he's such a dick-head, this doesn't work, I don't understand the point".
The format is likely to be:â”¬Ã¡two teams get on the pitch, practice attacking and defending against eachother in some sort of slow motion. If this doesn't take too long, then a gameâ”¬Ã¡will follow. Swap with another two teams, do the same, and so on. Then games when this is finished.
As always, please turn up early to help set up, or at the very least on time! Please help clear away at the end too. It's only fair.
This is THE anticipated email about the OH SO WONDERFUL tour that will be occurring over Easter where we will be travelling yonder to the far hills of Scotland for 7 days of paddling extravanganza...
What exactly is it?â”¬Ã¡This is the big tour of the year where we head up to Scotland for 7 days (+2 for travelling) spend the day time paddling and the evenings being jolly and merry.
WHEEENNNN is it?â”¬Ã¡ We will be heading up on the 25thâ”¬Ã¡March and returning on the 2ndâ”¬Ã¡April.â”¬Ã¡
WHERE?â”¬Ã¡We will be spending 3 days paddling in the Inverness area and 4 days in Fort Williamâ”¬Ã¡ - which gives us a good range of rivers.
....how much?â”¬Ã¡It will be AROUND #150 for accommodation/travel. Food will be extra on top of that, but if we club together we can keep the cost low.â”¬Ã¡
Why should I go?â”¬Ã¡
So Sarah, HOW can I get involved in this wonderfully exciting sounding trip?â”¬Ã¡I will be putting sign up on the site today at 12pm (if the site will let me...). If you re unsure about your capabilities etc, sign up anyway and we ll have a chat with you about it at a later point.
Sorry if I have been overly excitable and hyperbolic. It s a lot for tour to live up to, but the only way to see is if you COMEâ”¬Ã¡:-)
Your Tour Sec,
Are you hungry? I am, the chip shop was closed onâ”¬Ã¡my way home :(!
So I have a solution to the problem, and it's called CURRY!!
â”¬Ãº12 will get you papadoms, rice, naan, and 6 pots of curry to dip into as you fancy. (varying degrees of hotness and a veggie option will be available). Bring your own drinks. What a bargain!
So. This will be happening at Heart of India in Leamington on Thursday 28th Jan (week 3) at 7pm.
Most likely followed by Kelseys and Evolve.
Any questions just ask!
Jen and Mofo x
