Presidents trip

This weekend we are off to Wales! Car groups, leaving times and other details will be up on the forum soon so keep an eye out for them. We will be having dinner once we arrive at the bunk house so you don’t need to worry about food for the Friday night. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will also be sorted for you on Saturday as well as breakfast and lunch on Sunday. Don’t forget to buy lots of snacks to have on the river and to keep you going between meals. Also remember to bring a sleeping bag and lots of warm layers as it will most probably be pretty cold.


For this weeks social we will be doing a bar crawl around town visiting the more alternative bars and pubs that we never usually go to as a club. We will be meeting in the Water Witch at 8.00pm on Wednesday and for anyone going from campus Phil/Alex will be meeting people at 7.30pm at the Chaplaincy centre bus stop. If you have any questions then contact Aileen who will be running the social.


BUCS slalom

This year BUCS slalom will be held at the Tees Barrage and will be held on the 17-19th Febuary. If you want to come but aren’t sure if you’re good enough then speak to Megan about it, basically you just have to get from the top of the course to the bottom, even if you miss loads of gates it doesn’t matter! There will also be a party on the Saturday night. We will be staying in a motel which will cost about £20 each so if you want to come you need to sign up on the forum and pay the £20 to Rhys by the 30th of January. We should hopefully be having a slalom practice on the Wednesday of week 13 so keep an eye on the forum for that.


Sign up for the next FOA is now up, and it will be on Sunday 12th Febuary. Sign up will close on the 6th of Febuary and you will need to have paid Rhys the £20 petrol costs by then (if it works out cheaper you will be refunded the difference)


This Tuesday we are meeting at the new sports centre at 5.30pm for a jog around campus then going for a swim/sauna afterwards which will cost £3.60 without membership. There are also plans to get some pizza afterwards if you want.

Exec nominations

The nominations sheet for the Exec positions is still up outside the AU office and will be there until the first of Febuary at 12pm. If you wish to run for a position you will need someone to first and second you and for them to sign the sheet. If you go into the LUSU building below the spar and walk down the corridor on the right the sheets will be on a big noticeboard on the left hand side. The details of each position are also up on the forum. Hustings will be on the Wednesday of week 13 in Furness LT 2.

Much love,

The Exec x
