Hello polo fans!
Sunday week 8 (5th Dec) is the Warwick Winter Tournament!â”¬Ã¡There will be an A team, a B team, a Ladies team and an Old Gits team. We will be joined by a number of other university teams and it is guaranteed to be a lot of fun!
If you want to be considered for a team then please Sign up under Canoe -> Trips. The sign up is open now and will close at the end of this week so get signed up ASAP if you want to play! Even if you don't make it onto a team it's a really good day so please do come help out and support Warwick, it's also a good chance to meet other uni teams and watch some good polo!
On another note, if you are on the national league team the sign up is now open for next week's tournament (4th Dec) so please sign up ASAP so Yellow can sort out the team.
Much love from your secretary.
This is the trip you've all been waiting for! Open canoeing :D
If you have any questions, justâ”¬Ã¡post below.
Please sign up for the trip so that I have an idea of interest and kit required.â”¬Ã¡
Good afternoon canoeists!!!
ItÃ”Ã‡Ã–s that time again (already)
Canoe club is going to POP next week, and we will be rocking up in bin bags.
If we can make canoe gear look sexy (questionable) then we can definitely do our best to make some sexy bin bag outfits.
I think this could be interesting, so there will be a prize for best costume.
As per usual, be there for 7, sitting down with drinks for 7:30.
AND just a quick note to say it is aâ”¬Ã¡POLO session at the pool tonight, be there for 7:30, everyone welcome.
Me and Yellow where summoned to see Gemma Morris this morning following more reports of people using the side door to gain access to the sports centre. This is unacceptable. The side door can only be used to move kit in and out.
So from now on, if you wish to use the side door to move kit in and out you must ask the staff at reception first.
Anyone caught using the side door when they shouldn't be will be sent to a University Disciplinary hearing (This comes from Terry Monnington, and applies to all clubs not just us)
Clearly this shouldn't be a problem as you are all members of Warwick Sport and the Club anyway so you shouldn't need to use the side door, and Old gits returning for one off sessions can pay, most of them have jobs and earn plenty of money.
Rant over, have a good weekend
Mofo and Yellow
Good evening Lads and Ladies
Now that we've been playing this game called canoe polo for 6 weeks some of you may be wondering what the referees are talking about when they furiously blow their whistle at you...
Well never fear your club is here to help. If you look at the website you will see that there is a polo rules page where they are set out simply here http://warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/polorules/
For those of you that prefer your rules less distilled there is a fuller version here http://warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/polorulesbook/â”¬Ã¡ also on this page is Dr John's rules quiz which is an easy way of checking your understanding of the rules.
For those of you that are far too lazy to read web pages there is an alternative... G and Dr John will be giving a brief presentation before polo next week in the ramphal building details of which are:
This is a really good opportunity to get the rules explained to you by people who know what they're talking about
The time has come once again for the turkey filled night of fun that is the Canoe Christmas meal.
This year the big night will be Thursday week 10 (9th December for those of you on real dates), and will be held at the Benjamin Satchwell (Weatherspoons) in Leamington Spa. The night will be begin at 7.30 pm, and is a smart event (i.e. shirt and tie for men, dresses/frilly things for women). Anyone seen wearing a canoe hoodie will be forced to wear the club dress (a skimpy little number that doesn't leave much to the imagination!)
The deal is â”¬Ãº6.99 for starter and main, which includes a drink! They require menu choices in advance, so if you are wanting to come please sign up asap, as a second signup/system for food will be implemented later on.
Looking forward to it!
Cloughy, Einstein and Alice
After the brilliant night out on Thursday, it's time to start thinking about our next social.
we'll be attending Score (Pop) on wednesday week 6 (10th november). Back by popular demand it'll be high-vis themed, so be ready to don your fluorescent jackets and crack those glow sticks.
Hopefully it shouldn't be as full as last score where they had over 1000 people in the union, so we should be able to circle more freely. then dance for the rest of the night to the brilliant cheesy tunes.
make sure to buy your tickets in advance and arrive on time, circling will start at 7:30, so make sure you have a drink by then.
For those of you taking part in Movember we have set up a team "Warwick canoe and canoe polo", which you should be able to join by registering at http://uk.movember.com/
Your social secs
Einstein, Alice and Cloughy.
