Canoe NewsFreshers and Nene trips!Posted By: Liam On: Fri 5th Oct, 2018 7:08pm

TL;DR Moving water! Nene signups 12:00 Tuesday, Freshers signups 12:00 Wednesday

Sup paddlers!

It’s been so good to see all the new faces at our taster sessions so far. There’s still another week of completely free sessions so come on down when you can!
However, it’s time to start thinking outside the pool and get paddling on the moving stuff.

This year, we’re getting started with a Wednesday afternoon (week 3, 17 Oct) trip to the Nene whitewater centre. Leaving uni at 12:30, it will be a great place to get started with all of us lovely people on hand to help you out. All before arriving in time for our Pop! Circling (get your tickets!). This trip will cost £13 and signups for this will go live at 12:00 this Tuesday on (top tip: make an account early).

But that’s not all! The weekend afterwards (end of week 3, 19-21 Oct) we will be heading to South Wales from Friday evening for two days of kayaking in the Brecons. It’s sure to be an amazing trip designed to introduce you to your first whitewater river - we’ve even got real beds! And at £38 a go it’s a bargain holiday too. Signups open 12:00 this Wednesday on 

Remember, you will need to have been to at least one pool session before you go and have bought club membership (, so be sure to visit next week (or whenever) to say hello first.

Canoe love,

Polo NewsIMPORTANT KIT NOTICESPosted By: Lara On: Tue 26th Jun, 2018 11:23am

Hey Paddlers,

We've got some changes acomin'...

Kit Amnesty - We are being required to do a full kit inventory, and for this, we need the kit back. Please bring any club kit you have hanging around yours back by 10am tomorrow. Please do not take any kit home after tonight’s session. All kit MUST be returned. 

Kit Borrowing - After this Sunday (01/07/18) the new Kit Borrowing policy comes into force. If you are borrowing kit, you MUST fill in polo’s kit borrowing form on the website. Since this use is outside of club usage, maintenance charges will apply: £1 for a complete set of kit excluding a boat per training session it is used at, £3 for each training session a boat is used at, and £5 for each tournament the kit is used at (tournament cost covers both boat and kit). There is also a charge for each Warwick session that the kit/boat misses equal to that of a training session. 

Paddles - Have you noticed that your favourite paddles feel a little different? Well, that’s sort of my fault. We have renumbered the paddles! Also, listed on the left blade is the length and feather. I know this is going to be a bit annoying, but it should hopefully make things easier for you all going ahead 🙂

See you tonight!

Polo Love

Lara and the Polo Exec

Sup paddlers,

So as you all know surf trip is coming up (sign up if you haven’t already!!) and to accompany the trip there is of course a coveted t-shirt to commemorate not only the weekend, but the whole year of kayaking. You don't even have to go to surf to get a t-shirt! Each T-shirt will be adorned with your very own personalised nickname, hand crafted by our outgoing members.

If you would like to get a T-shirt please select your size on the doodle (same supplier as last year):

T-shirts will cost around £11 (TBC)  which we will send you a payment link for once the order has been processed.

Sup paddlers!

As the end of term is almost upon us I thought I would update you on the final socials of the year. So once those pesky exams (boo!) are out of the way join us as we celebrate another year in typical Canoe style;

WEEK 8 – SATURDAY – SKOOLDAYZ – We will be hitting up the Copper Rooms. We will need a Fresher’s kitchen to host prinks, starting hopefully straight after polo at 21:30. Contact me if you want to host!

WEEK 9 – WEDNESDAY – POP! – Instead of circling in the Copper Rooms we will be having a BBQ (weather dependant) and drinks beforehand, then its back to the Copper Rooms for the final time this year. Prepare yourself as Disco Dave blasts out the Warwick Anthem ‘Mr Brightside’. The theme is Summer!! 
You only need an 'event-only' ticket!!

WEEK 9 - SURF – Need I say more. Signup if you haven’t already.

WEEK 10 – DATE TBC – EPIC PARTY – Warwick Canoe’s version of the Sports Ball. Join us for the final social of the year at Leamington Rugby Club where alcohol is aplenty. More information will be coming in the following weeks.

Canoe NewsNENE and SURFPosted By: Liam On: Fri 25th May, 2018 9:10am

Sup Paddlers

Rumours have been circulating that exams are ending in a few weeks time. This can only mean one thing: summer kayaking!!



On the 19th June (Tues Week 9) the club will be heading to Nene whitewater centre for a sunny* afternoon play in some moving water. This will be a great opportunity to get back into paddling, and your best chance to try out the duo, or the brand new Wavehoppers on some moving water, as well as to try out any new playboating you’ve been practicing in the pool.
We will be meeting at 12pm and returning around 6.
This trip will cost £12, and includes all kit and transport.


Signups for Nene will go live Monday 4th June. If you would like to come but will be in an exam, let a member of the exec know in advance.


On the 22nd June (Fri Week 9) we will depart for what is debatably the best trip of the year: our annual surf tour at Newgale campsite in Pembrokeshire. A weekend of drinking (both alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages), bbqs, bonfires, party-tenting and maybe even a splash in the sea. This trip is open to absolutely anyone, so let us know if you’re bringing a plus-one with you. Camping should cost £6 per night, and transport will be approximately £25.


Signups for surf are already open on Everyone who signs up will be able to come!!

Be sure to signup for both a ‘leaving’ (Fri AM/PM) and a ‘returning’ (Sun PM/Mon PM) so that you will have transport both ways. Please sign up before Wednesday 13th June so we can sort transport, and let us know if you would like to bring a car.


Quick reminder that Epic Party will be on the 28th June (Thurs Week 10) at Leamington Rugby club - more on this soon.

Polo NewsRAGE!Posted By: Tommaso On: Sun 13th May, 2018 8:56pm

Revision is making you stressed and you need to vent the anger for that missed deadline?

Want to experience some “Hey, hey, penalty!” at its finest?

Have you, like me, always dreamed to bin Josh and get awarded for it?
Then it’s time for RAGE!

For those who don’t know what Rage is (like me until last week, for example), it’s basically a Fantasy League whose spectacular and talented players are you all! After ranking all the players of our club from 1 to 10, you will have to create your own Fantasy Team: the mark assigned to each player will correspond to their “price”. Then, we will play several games during the next Tuesday sessions and everyone will be assigned some points for their performance (criteria include scoring a goal, saving, bins and so forth). The person whose team collects the highest number of points will win a tempting cash prize. For this reason, a small admission fee will be required if you want to create a Fantasy Team. Of course, no money required to come and play, you already all have your membership (am I right, Chris?)
Anyway, more details on creating your own team will follow once teams are released.
But first of all, you all need to sign up! The deadline for signups is Tuesday 15th at 23:59!

Hope you will all take part in this amazing competition!


Thanks for your attention,

See you soon!

Polo NewsPolo Presidential ManifestosPosted By: Josh On: Wed 2nd May, 2018 6:39pm

Tomorrow evening, the club will be hosting it's most serious of events (definitely not a social in disguise). Elections will once again be hosted in Kelsey's (a fine seat of democracy and definitely not a place of socialising).

The evening starts at 7.30 and the very serious nature of the event requires formal wear. I hope all the budding candidates have prepared a killer joke and an amazing song (anything better than mine is normally a good place to start).


Please take the time to fully read all the manifesto(s) before making your mind up of who to vote for. 

Lara's Manifesto

Both the canoe and canoe polo clubs have had a massive impact on my time here at university. Not only have they introduced me to a new sport, but a whole new community, and basically all of my friends.

I’m running for President of polo because I love the sport and I want to focus on making it more accessible for everyone to join and take part in. I really want to focus on the teamwork aspect of the sport, which I hope to do by adding a ‘session aim’ at the beginning of each session.

I also would love for both clubs to focus more on giving back to the community, which is something that I tried to introduce (rather successfully, if I do say so myself) with the Paddleathon - an event where you guys managed to raise over £1000!

I would love for everyone to be a member of both clubs, so that they can begin to discover the full range of experiences that this rather unusual sport has to offer, focusing on working closely and co-ordinating with the canoe exec to ensure our members can avoid having to choose between the two wherever possible.

I might have failed my first year, but I won’t fail this club!

Canoe NewsCanoe President Manifesto's Posted By: Hadyn On: Mon 30th Apr, 2018 2:09pm

Hello All, 

Our yearly elections are nearly upon us, as a reminded we will be holding them in Kelseys from 7:30pm this Thursday 3rd May (week 2), it's not to late to run for any of the positions just let me know at and prepare your canoe related song and a joke for the night. Also since this is a serious and respectible establishment and ocasion, suit up! The manifestos for people running for President are below, only Pebble (AKA R.O.N) kept to the word limit. 


Mr William Leigh

  • In order to prevent unnecessary faff relating to setting up safety on club trips, all of the club throwlines will be burned. 
  • All current students will be removed from their exec roles, which will instead be populated with old gits. The single exception to this will be the position of coach, which will be decided by a boaterX race down the Fairy Glen in playboats. 
  • Club trip rivers must be at least grade 4, and will ideally contain at least one grade 5 feature. 
  • Next year’s freshers trip will be to the Fairy Glen and Nant Peris, and will be organised by Little Sam. 
  • I will lobby the university to build a grade 5 whitewater course containing multiple siphons as part of the new sports centre. 
  • Any driver who takes club members back to Leam after a pool session instead of going to the pub will be summarily executed. 
  • Portaging is for the weak, and therefore is banned. Anybody who attempts to portage a feature will instead be thrown into it.
  • Instead of the current river group system, club paddling of rivers will take the form of BoaterX. A net will be placed at the bottom to collect any human or plastic debris.
  • Each river trip must contain at least 3 GoPros to capture the resultant carnage.
  • Polo will be abolished. Club polo boats will be disposed of by paddling them down whitewater until they snap in half.
  • The maximum allowable number for an odds on is 5. 
  • The koan will be relocated to its rightful place next to the garage.
  • I will build a wall between the boat storage and exam table storage areas of the garage and make Estates pay for it.
  • Any personal throwlines will only be allowed on club trips if the bag is filled with rocks.
  • We will run a trip to Teifi Tour next year. (Jeff told me that some drunk bloke from Swansea said that he runs it and would allow human pyramids)


Miss Hannah Dell

I’ve loved being a part of canoe this year - both the amazing paddling side of it, and just as importantly the community of it. What I love most about canoe is how friendly and welcoming the atmosphere is, which is something that I really want to make sure stays a core part of the club.

I’ve had an amazing time on all the trips this year; getting to know everyone, paddling new rivers, and learning how to improve my paddling and leadership skills. Peer paddling in particular has really helped me develop as a kayaker, so I want to keep growing that part of the club, perhaps even have more ‘intro to peer paddling’ type trips later in term 2 to give the opportunity to keen beans to really get into the sport.

It’d be great to get the club running harder rivers, so to do this I want to get leaders doing AWWSR, and just continue to train up and encourage people so that they’re not only club members, but part of the wider paddling community.

This year we didn’t just get the freshers rolling, we got the fundraising ball rolling with our insanely successful Paddleathon. I’d like to make this much more of a focus in the club, and aim to have multiple fundraising events for a yearly charity voted on by our members.

If all that’s not enough to convince you - I’m not Will.



No manifesto submitted.  


Thank you for a fantastic and successful year and good luck to everyone running for an exec possition this year. 

Yours in Canoe 

Hadyn and the Outgoing Canoe Exec.


 TERM 3 PRE-TERM NEWSPosted By: Liam On: Tue 17th Apr, 2018 1:06pm


With exam season fast approaching, here’s some news to keep your mind off it.

ELECTIONS - On Thursday Week 2 (3rd May) at 19:00 we’ll be holding our annual elections in Kelsey’s! It’s the second event of the year that requires formal wear - so no jeans! We’ll be ordering pizza, getting a bit merry, and then holding our joint elections. For all positions, on the night you must perform a canoe-related song cover and tell a joke. Those intending to run for President must prepare a short manifesto in advance (200 words max) which will be published on the website. If you’re interested in any of the positions, feel free to ask any questions to current members of the exec. For more information about what each role entails, follow this link to the website: Email your intention to run/manifesto to president @ or president @ before Term 3 starts.

CANOE SESSIONS - We have been granted an afternoon session 14:30-15:30 every Tuesday in Term 3, these will be super relaxed so come on down if you need to cool off between exams. Monday and Wednesday sessions will be on as usual (20:30-22:00).

POLO SESSIONS - There will be no session on Friday evenings throughout term 3. Tuesday (20:30-22:00) and Saturday (19:00-21:00) sessions will be running as usual, with the addition of RAGE (more news on this to come…) Due to exams, Wednesday morning ball throwing sessions in Westwood have been cancelled (boo!) although I’m sure you may be able to convince people to attend breakfast...

SOCIALS - As is tradition, we will be returning with a week 1 curry at Dama Dam Mast Balti (formerly Ali’s) in Leam. Usual time (19:30) and, as always, BYOB. Week 2 is obviously elections, and the week 3 social is to be determined by your newly elected social secs! Then, there’ll be a break before we return to Skooldayz on Saturday Week 8 followed by a BBQ and pre-drinks before week 9 Pop! (get your ‘event only’ tickets) Finally, we’ll be hosting Epic Party in week 10 (details to follow).

Paddling Love,

Josh and Hadyin

 Canoe Rash VestsPosted By: Ivan On: Mon 12th Mar, 2018 6:29pm

><> ><> ><> ><> ><>


Canoe Rash Vests!


Canoe have finally organised our very own rash vests (complete with bears!). See the image below for a rough example. Note that the real ones will hopefully be a bit more symmetrical and the red will be the official Warwick Sport Red.


Also note that they should arrive with plenty of time before BUCS.


The cost will be about £20 per rash vest (including VAT, postage & bears).


If you would like to buy one then please fill in the Doodle poll, make sure you put up to three initials you would like along with your name. If you would like to buy more than one or you would like a different size than mentioned in the poll then please let me know.

The website doesn’t offer much advice on sizing but they do say they are tight fitted.


Please be aware that by filling in the poll you have committed to paying.


The deadline for this is Friday at midnight.


Canoe Luv

**BUCS 2017***

On 13-15 April, the mighty Warwick fleet shall descend upon Nottingham to compete in BUCS - the main student polo competition of the year! This Tournament is payed for by the club so there is no cost to you so no excuses not to sign up.

Warwick has been highly successful over the last couple of years and we hope to keep this trend going. Therefore we will be sending the best of the best (of the people who are free on that date). We will be entering an A, Ladies, and B team (and the Old Gits will probably turn up as well). Competition will be fierce so you should all aim to train as hard as possible over the last few weeks of term to impress your captains and win your place in a team.

IF YOU WANT TO BE CONSIDERED FOR SELECTION PLEASE SIGN UP HERE (even if you filled out the previous survery):


There will also be a ref course at the venue, starting early (i.e. don't sign up if you have labs that day) on Friday 13th April. For only £10, you will get a theory qualification (assuming you pass the exam at the end) and for an extra £5 you also get your very own whistle and rule book. You can also get your practical assessment done the next day but people aiming to do that should have done a fair amount of refereeing in club sessions beforehand.



We will be ordering sexy polo shirts (no nipple chafing) to wear when we collect all those medals we are totes going to win. We will send out more details about cost, design, etc. later and you can decide whether you want one (even if you're not going).

On Wednesday the 28th February (week 8) we will be going to Nene Whitewater Centre for an afternoon of kayaking on their artificial course.


This is a good opportunity to practice some skills before Scotland, have a go at playboating on moving water or if didn’t get a place on Scotland then you can get your fix before Easter.


The trip will cost £12.


Sign ups go live Thursday at 12pm.

We will be aiming to paddle for 24 hours on kayaking ergos (think rowing machines but for kayaks) in order to raise money for Coventry and Warwickshire Mind.

Canoe NewsDay 5: Numbers don’t liePosted By: Severijn On: Sun 11th Feb, 2018 7:55pm

For the final day of hype, here is something slightly different. Rather than just believing me when I say Scotland is great, why don’t you listen to other people saying the same. In the end-of-year club survey last year 71,4% of people said that Scotland was their favourite trip of the year! In fact, more people said Scotland was their favourite trip that year than people that said that they had been on Scotland.

Don’t miss out on this trip and sign up tomorrow! If you want to join me in the Dirty Duck, I’ll be sitting there from 19:30 onwards and sign-ups will go live for everyone at 19:55. I hope to see many of you signing up!

Canoe NewsDay 4: Exceptional body artPosted By: Severijn On: Sat 10th Feb, 2018 7:55pm

The fourth reason to go on Scotland Tour this year also features in-house design. Instead of on t-shirts, this time the art is on people’s faces though. Every day one person will get adorned with beautiful sharpied-on facial hair. If you want to look as fabulous as Hadyn did last year or if you want to draw mustaches on people, don’t forget to sign up on Monday!

Canoe NewsDay 3 of hype: T-shirtsPosted By: Severijn On: Fri 9th Feb, 2018 7:55pm

If you’ve somehow not been convinced or hyped up enough to try and sign up for Scotland yet, let the official Scotland Tour t-shirts convince you! No longer shall you have to enviously watch people wear snazzy club t-shirts, because this year’s Scotland t-shirts are rumoured to be much snazzier than the last years’ ones. The (maybe at some point) award-winning design by yours truly will surely make you the shining envied among Freshers next year…

P.S. If you need accommodation between the end of term and the day we leave, please contact the exec and we'll find a place for you to sleep over.

Canoe NewsDay 2 of hype: Social stuffPosted By: Severijn On: Thu 8th Feb, 2018 8:38pm

A great second reason to sign up to Scotland is the socialising in the evenings. Most of the evenings will involve chatting and playing games with others, but there will also be a big social night in the Great Glen Hostel. If you’ve been looking for a chance to really get to know everyone in the club or if you’ve been looking to join the cuddle squad, now is your time!

Canoe NewsScotland Tour SignupsPosted By: Severijn On: Wed 7th Feb, 2018 7:55pm
Hey paddlers!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Easter and that can of course only mean one thing: it’s almost time for Scotland Tour! In this annual trip the canoe club heads up north for nine days of kayaking, socialising, and minibus faffing. We will leave on Sunday the 18th of March (which is the weekend of week 10) and return late in the evening on Tuesday the 27th of March. The first half of this week, until the 22nd, will be spent in the Abernethy Bunkhouse and the other half will be spent in the Great Glen Hostel, which we will both have exclusive use of. The price of this year’s Scotland Tour will be 230 pounds. This includes transport, fuel, accommodation, a group meal, a social night, the use of club kit (as always), and a swanky Scotland Tour 2018 t-shirt.
As a rule, we require everyone who wants to sign up to Scotland Tour to have been on a weekend river trip with us before. If you have not had the privilege to have joined us on one, please speak to an exec member about signing up.
The sign-ups for Scotland Tour will go live on our website at 19:55 next Monday (The start of week 6 or the 12th of February in real dates). If you want to, feel free to join me (and hopefully others) at the Dirty Duck before that time for a pre-pool-session pub sign-up. Regardless of whether you join me there or not, be ready with your laptops or phones at 19:55 because it is sure to fill up quickly!
Finally, to hype everyone up in the run-up to Monday, I will be posting a reason to be ready for sign-ups on our Facebook page and our website every day until then, starting today.
To start off the hype, the undisputed first reason to sign up for Scotland can of course only be the paddling. The full week of paddling is great fun and is a wonderful opportunity for improving your paddling as well. Last year’s rivers included the Findhorn, Spean Gorge, the Etive, and many more! The week will start off with relatively easy rivers and build up to more difficult ones. For an impression of the rivers that we will be paddling, take a look at these videos of Scotland last year!

Polo NewsCardiff and BUCSPosted By: Josh On: Fri 26th Jan, 2018 10:52am

My dear lovely polo types, this is going to be a long one…

As we’re getting into term 2, the biggest and baddest polo tournaments are coming up, and we’ve got to plan ahead at how we’re going to go along and win them all! These tournaments are of course Cardiff (Week 9) and BUCS (week 4 of the holidays- 14/15th April).

BUCS is the biggest, most important competition of the year and a great way for the club to flex its polo muscles, not only by doing well in the Ladies’ and Men’s leagues, but also by having the most fun at the party and being irresponsibly drunk in the middle of a tournament. We will be entering a B team in the B league as well, where the aim is to get as many bins in as possible! Please let us know if you can come and what team you’d like to play in here BUCS is free, as fees are covered by the uni, however there is the opportunity to buy yourself a sexy sexy BUCS top. If you have any questions, please ask myself or someone on the exec.

Cardiff, for the second year in a row, doesn’t clash with Scotland!!! Week 9 (9th-11th of February) this term, we will be heading to the Cardiff University canoe polo tournament. This is a great warm up for BUCS and will of course have a raging party and a meal provided on the Saturday night. The weekend will cost £35 for the tournament entry, transport, party and the meal. If you want to come along, please sign up here: If you sign up for Cardiff, please also fill in the google form above.

Those of you who are getting anxious about the new rash vest order, it’ll be here soon. I promise!

Polo love,

 TERM 2 SOCIALSPosted By: Lara On: Thu 25th Jan, 2018 1:32pm
Hey happy paddlers!
It's that time of year again (time for an infodump). I'm going to do a big old socials timeline! But before I begin, just a quick reminder to please sign up for the 2 polo tournaments this weekend and Cardiff on the website!
WEEK 4 - WEDNESDAY - POP! We'll be circling for our first time again this term in the Copper Rooms. The theme is farmyard! Feel free to bring plus ones :) Be sat down at circle with your pints by 19:30 or there will be consequences...
WEEK 5 - FRIDAY - PUB GOLF Back again for another year, you'll be competing against yourself (and your liver) to complete the course on par. We'll be starting the crawl on campus at 18:00! The theme is "The Food Chain": Freshers have to dress as plants, 2nd years as herbivores, 3rd years as carnivores, and years 4+ as hunters!
WEEK 6 - THURSDAY - REAL ALE And we're back! Real Ale is one of the best events of the year - good drinks, good company, and good music! (Dr Busker Hype!) If you don't know who he is, you will after this! This event is honestly so popular that old gifs from far and wide comeback just for it, it's so great. There's a humungous range of ales, ciders, wines, and even mead - so pick your poison (though from personal experience, limit yourself to one - and only one - super purple). We'll be meeting in the Copper Rooms at 18:00
WEEK 7 - ¯_(ツ)_/¯ - POLO SOCIALS - Again, this one's up to the captains to decide, so more details will be coming later (but not from me).
WEEK 8 - SATURDAY - SKOOLDAYZ - Ties at the ready! We're hitting up Skooldayz again, but we need a Fresher's kitchen or it's gonna be bloody cold! Contact me please! Polo will still be on, so prinks will start afterwards at 21:30 :)
WEEK 9 - WEDNESDAY - POP! Once again, we will be circling! All the usual stuff applies - this week's theme is ABC! (Anything but clothes) Looking forward to seeing the fashion designers in you all!
WEEK 10 - THURSDAY - LAZERQUEST This one should be a laugh - details are a bit thin because it's so far away, but we'll be meeting in Coventry (most likely in a Spoons :P ) and then playing a few rounds, before returning home (by which I mean the Spoons).
Phew, that was a long one, but hopefully it'll help you all with your diaries for a bit!
See you all soon <3
Social Sec Love <3

Greetings fellow wet ones,


Our next canoe trip will be to the Lake District on the 2nd-4th Feb (end of week 4), where we usually paddle the Kent and the Leven. Here’s a video of what we paddled last year:


These rivers will be more challenging than those on previous trips this year, making it great preparation for Scotland (hype!). We suggest that you come by the pool for a bit of practice in our evening sessions. They run on Monday and Wednesday 8.30-10 every week. Although the ability to roll is not necessary, it’s recommended.


Signups will go live at noon this Thursday.


If you are unsure whether this trip will be suitable for you, sign up anyway, and we can talk to you about it.


See you tonight at the ice skating social, starting at the Harvester (at the skydome) at 7, and skating at 8. Don’t forget to sign up for your ice card at: link


Tonights pool session has been cancelled because we are all dancing on ice.


Much love

MAKE SURE to sign up for a FREE Ice Card here, otherwise it'll be £2.20 more on the day: link

Sign ups are live for our Refreshers trip in 2018!

It will take place on 19-21 January in Dartmoor. Although the water will be cold, we will be staying in the nice and warm Newton Abbot Scout Hut which has a fully equipped kitchen.

This is the last weekend whitewater trip of the academic year that is aimed at beginners, so make sure you come along to get some more experience of whitewater paddling. If you want to attend our week long trip to Scotland (in the first week of Easter) then you will need to have attended at least one weekend trip with the Canoe Club. We highly recommend this trip if you didn’t get a chance to go on Freshers or Tyne Tour.

See you all tonight at the Christmas meal in the Clarendon!

Canoe NewsKit borrowing for personal paddling tripsPosted By: Hadyn On: Mon 5th Jun, 2017 2:57pm
We have had an issue recently with kit being stored on the balcony and blocking the fire escape doors. As a reminder guys kit should be returned to the garage at the earliest possible convenience.
If kit has to be stored on the balcony, for a short period of time, then please leave it behind the rope we use to section off the kayaks and never in front of the fire escape doors (Warwick Sport take this very seriously).
As the summer approaches more people borrow club kit for personal paddling trips. We don't charge a fee for borrowing kit on personal trips as we want to encourage everyone to kayak as much as possible, but in doing so you must fill in the kit borrowing form, in addition to asking a member of Canoe's Exec. This is so we have a written record of who took what kit were as kit has a habit of disappearing over the summer.
Please remember that while we don't charge for lost or broken kit on club trips we will do so for personal paddling trips our charges along with the full kit borrowing policy can be read on our website.
