Yes you read that right.

This may go down in history for its sheer brilliance.

When: Wednesday Week 7, 18th Feb SCORE! Now in Tempo, Happy Hour 6-7pm.

What: Commando Themed Dress (As in army, not "going commando" for those in any doubt). Cud

EXTRA: At SCORE we'll be "fairly electing" a "winner" from the Canoe Exec (not Polo) to get waxed for Right To Play.

You couldn't ask for more awesomeness, but as always you don't have to drink to have fun.

We'll see you there,

Exec Positions

Hello everybody!

As you probably are all aware, we are holding exec elections later this term - actual date to be confirmed by our Social Secs.

In the meantime, we now have the "exec positions" page on the website,, have a look and see if there is anything in there that interests you. If you see something you like the look of, a good idea is to talk to the current person holding that position to get a more personal opinion on it.

If you decide you want to go for it, email our lovely president (president at warwickcanoe dot co dot uk or president at polo dot warwickcanoe dot co dot uk) and say which position/positions you would like to run for - you can just run for them on the night but its nice if we have an idea of numbers in advance.

More details, like what you have to do on the night, orders of positions, voting procedures (pah) will all come along in due time, courtesy of our social secs.


Winter Surf trip (wk7)

Afternoon all.

On the weekend of week 7 (20th-22nd Feb) we will be travelling down to Cider country to stay at my house and do some surfing! This will be a really chilled weekend with very little structure needed, and cheap because we don't have to pay for accomodation! If there is lots of rain in the late part of week 7 we may decide to run some rivers instead, but this will be subject to who signs up, and what we all want to do.

I know there are lots of trips on at the moment, and you maybe thinking, can I affoard the time/money? My advice is, next term there will be far fewer trips planned, do work then! Plus as I have already said, it will be a resonably cheap weekend and and a shed load of fun. We'll probably visit the pub on one of the nights and share stories with the locals, always lots of fun. Get your inappropriate jokes ready!

We'll be fed by Mrs Blackmore on one of the nights so, if you are coming, reply to the news thread with any dietry requirements/inadequacies so that we can plan accordingly. The farm is under 2ft of snow at the moment with drifts of upto 4ft! My brother tells me it could still be there in two weeks, so maybe some opportunity for some proper snow boating.

Sign-up will go up at 1400hrs today. As with all trips, who goes will be at the discression of the exec, but the earlier you get in there and sign up, the more likely you are to get a place.

Don't miss out.


Charity Rage

The time has come my friends to join battle once again in a warwick 'Friendly' tournament. The format will be slightly different this time around, as we will be asking those who want to take part to make a £1 donation towards warwick sports chosen charity 'Right to Play' (learn the words madi). I dont want to hear anyone moaning about not having enough money - its only one less purple (nearly) to be chundered at score. Donations will be collected on the night. Post below if you will be coming to the tournament so that we can arrange teams.

Pool open for thursday session

Hi guys,

We are truely in a British style emergency. A couple of inches of snow falls, and the whole university shuts down.

Fear not, everything isn't lost. The sports centre will still be open for the kayaking session at 3pm today.

For the brave ones amongst you, we will be snow boating/pissing about with the snow from 2, so meet at the sports centre at 2. Give me a bell if you're late to see where we are.

Your currently very toasty vice president (thanks to the librarys over enthusiastic heating system)


No Pool Session Tonight!

According to my sources (well, Madi heard it from somewhere) that, due to the snow, they've decided to shut the pool at 6pm tonight for some reason...

So don't brave the cold, stay indoors with a cup of cocoa! See you on Thursday/at the next social instead.



Easter Tour 2008 signup

Posted 12y 2mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Snow
Dear all,

A tour will be leaving campus on Thursday 2nd April. It will be returning to campus on Thursday 9th April.

The destination will be Scotland, where precipitation, rivers, whiskey and pretty maidens come hand in hand.

If you fancy joining in on this fun filled adventure, signup is going to be opening 3rd February at about 11:00 am.

The signup will be open to all paddlers who've been on two river trips, so sign up if you're interested. However, the final tour must consist of the right balance of drivers/experienced paddlers/confident beginners so I cannot confirm that those first to sign up will get to go.

If you're not sure you're good enough yet, but want to come, sign up and a friendly exec member will discuss possibilities with you.

The tour will hopefully cost no more than £160 (including only transport and accommodation). A bargain for 7 days of event filled excitement!

Details are subject to changes. Ask any exec member/experienced member of the club about how awesome it is.

Are you up for it?

The chance to play in a one-off west midlands tournament has come up, and so we will be sending a team to Stratford on 28th of February (starting at 5pm). This is the night before our warwick tournament so it would be a great warmup, with 5 games guarenteed on the night. Signup is now up!
