It was lovely to see so many of you at the curry social last night!
If a few drinks at the pub is your cup of ‘tee’ then our next social is for you! Next Thursday we will be doing ‘Pub Golf’ which incorporates a bar crawl and a drinking game all in one! The aim: you have to try and drink your drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) in few sips to keep your scorecard as low as possible.
We will be meeting on campus at 19:30 and more details will be released on the facebook event in due course!
There may also be a chance to ‘par-tee’ at Kelseys afterwards to end the night too!
Just click going on the event here: https://fb.me/e/15tUzCkx2 if you are available to a’tee’nd!
Hoping to see you there!

We have a few updates/reminders before term 2 begins next week:
Term 2 Taster Sessions
Bring your mates along, as the first two weeks of pool sessions are free for anyone to try out!
Canoe sessions are Monday 20:30-22:00 and Wednesday 20:30-22:00
Polo sessions are Tuesday 20:30-22:00 and Saturday 17:00-19:00
In canoe next week we'll be going through some more advanced paddling techniques before bringing in some new rescue skills which are bound to be a whole load of fun.
Canoe Skills List
Thank you to everyone who filled out our surveys at the end of last term. In response to some of your feedback, we are striving to make our pool sessions more structured and informative to focus on what each of you want to improve on. For a start, we've designed a brand new skills checklist full of the essential kayaking skills we think you should have experience of by the end of your first year of kayaking in the club.
The list is accessed via our website at: https://warwickcanoe.uk/skills/
(Alternatively it can be found through Canoe -> My Skills)
When you feel comfortable enough with a skill on the list to the point where you could teach it to someone else, tick it off and it is automatically saved to your profile. While there is no requirement to do them in a strict order, it is highly reccommended that you complete all the skills in a section before moving on to the next.
Please approach any older member of the club for help learning a new skill or demonstrating one you already have - we're all here to help you improve as much as possible both in pool sessions and on trips!
Socials are back in full swing as soon as term begins so keep an eye out for details of our week 1 social very soon!
Looking forward to seeing you around
Sam and all the execs xxx
Good evening all,
This term has been busy for both clubs. As a way to summarise the term and things to look out for next term, the exec has been busy working on a newsletter for you all. Please follow the link below to access it:
If you have any questions about any of the information that is in the newsletter please feel free to ask any of the exec.
We look forward to seeing many of you in the new year!
Dan and both execs
It is T-9 days till week 9 Pop! We will be circling in the Cooper Rooms on Wednesday 1st December before dancing off the purple to some of the finest 2000s music you have ever heard.
As it is on the first of December (😱😱) we have decided to start off your festivities with the theme of ‘Australian Christmas’ so get your best shit-shirts and bush hats out (even shorts if you are feeling brave) or even a Santa hat and try to embrace the summer and Christmas feeling all at once.
