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 warwickcanoe.uk 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!
