ElectionsPosted By: Gabs On: Sun 5th Apr, 2015 6:27pm
Canoe and Canoe Polo elections will be happening on 30/04/15 (Thursday week 2) at the Robins' Well.

They will start at 7pm so please be on time. Dress code is formal so suit up!

If you want to run for something on the canoe exec then please email , letting me know which position you want to run for.

If you want to run for something on the polo exec then please email a.humpert@warwick.ac.uk, letting Anja know which position you want to run for.

More details on the positions can be found here:†link .

If you are running for something then you'll need to come up with a good canoe themed song/poem/dance entertainment and think of joke. You will recite the song and joke on the night.

If you're thinking of running for either president then you'll need to submit a manifesto.
The deadline for submitting your manifesto is Saturday 18th April (last Saturday of Easter holidays) so that they can be sent out to the whole club in week 1 of term 3.

If you're still not sure whether you want to run for something or not, I would definitely urge you to! It's a great way to have your say in how the club is run and it looks great on your CV. The club needs an exec full of team players, people who are committed to the club and their exec position and who are generally not an arse!

 Warwick RAGE! League 2015Posted By: Jamie On: Tue 31st Mar, 2015 4:51pm

Hiya all Poloers,

After the BUCS event in the first weekend of term 3 (24th†April) we will have little left to distract us from that living hell of studying our arses off to acheive.
We need a way to releive the stress and pressure.
Therefore I present to you the†Annual Canoe Polo Warwick RAGE! League!
We sort out 4 teams based on how you rank each other as polo players so that the teams are as fair and equal as possible and this means that players of all abilities can play.
Then, each tuesday starting on the 28th April (week 2), each RAGE! team will play one game as part of the league, with the remaining pool time in the session being just for fun!
The winning RAGE! team at the end of the 6 weeks of matches will win street cred and a fabulous prize!

IF you would like to play in the RAGE! league,†please sign up on the trips section of the website. Closing date will be†tuesday 21st†April.
†(It doesnt really matter if you cant make a couple of the weeks as there will be 6 weeks worth of matches, but dont sign up if you know that you will be away for the whole term. There will still be games for non-RAGE!-league players, just not as cool)

We will also be running a†Fantasy Polo League!
You will be assigned a budget with which to purchase players to form a team from the people who sign up to the RAGE! League. The value of each player will be determined by the rankings you give each other for the RAGE! League. Players earn points for goals, saves, assists etc. during their RAGE! League games. †The cost of entering a team for the fantasy league is £2 and the managers of the teams coming 1st, 2nd†and 3rd†will receive 60%, 30%, 10% respectivly of the intake for the Fantasy Polo League. (dont worry about the Fantasy Polo League yet, more information will be emailed out on the Wednesday 22rd†April)

So please†sign up for the RAGE! League by 21st†of April†so that we have time to arrange teams and send out details for setting up fantasy league teams. We will start with the RAGE! league competition in Week 2 of next term (28th†April).†

Jamjam <3

 Last Social of term!!Posted By: Lauren On: Fri 6th Mar, 2015 11:15am
Hi guys, Next Thursday 12th March we will be having our last social of term. This is traditionally a pre-tour social but obviously everyone is welcome. The plan will be to have a Spoons meal in Leam and then ultimately end up in Kelseys (as per)! Meet at 7:30pm in Benjamin Satchwell's (halway down the parade). I'm sure there will be a contingent of people coming from campus if you think you're likely to get lost!! See you then x

 SCOTLAND TOUR!!Posted By: Lauren On: Wed 4th Feb, 2015 7:42pm

Hola amigos,

†Itís that time of the year again; Scotland Tour is upon us! From Sunday 15th March to Monday 23rd March (first week of Easter Holidays) Warwick Canoe Club will be heading up to Scotland for a week of serious paddling and hardcore Fun!

† Scotland Tour is our biggest and bestest trip of the year and for any keen kayaker out there one not to miss!

† We will spend the first half of the trip in a bunkhouse in Nethy Bridge and then will be moving on to a second bunkhouse near Fort William. Potential paddling includes: the Spene Gorge, the mighty Findhorn, the legendary Etive and many more besides.

† The trip will cost £220, which is a bargain for 8 days considering it includes accommodation, transport, all your kit for the week, a group meal one night and more!

†As if that wasnít enough: We will also be ordering in kegs of ale to the first bunkhouse just to add to the fun (for all those ale drinkers out there). The idea is we keep a track of how many pints each person drinks and then they pay for them at the end of the week! Simple!

†To come on the trip you must have been on at least one other club trip beforehand. If you have yet to be lucky enough to go on a club trip speak to a member of the exec about your eligibility to come on the trip.

† In order to go on the trip you must sign up on the website. Sign ups will go live at 6pm sharp next Monday (9th February). This will be a popular one so I suggest being by a computer at this time ready to sign up!! (Iíve made it after most people finish lectures so hopefully everyone should be free).

† Once the sign up closes we will send a confirmation email to each lucky paddler that signed up soonest to confirm their place on the trip. If you get a confirmation email you are committed to paying for the trip. In the event that you can no longer go on the trip then email us ASAP and we will try and find someone to take your place. If you are unable to make the trip and you have yet to receive a confirmation email but you have signed up on the Warwick Canoe website then send us an email and we will remove your sign up.

† I hope youíre all as excited as I am!!
