 This Saturday as there is no water around at the moment there will be an interest post up on the forum soon for some slalom training at Halton.

 Exec Hustings & Social 

 Exec Hustings will be taking place on Wednesday, starting at 6.30pm in Furness LT 2. You can be nominated until 12pm on the same day when I will be taking the forms down.  

We need as many people as possible to turn up to vote in the new exec and it gives you the chance to ask any questions you may have about how the prospective Exec members will plan on running the club. 

Once this is over we will be visiting a few of the bars on campus and then heading into town.

 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 within the next few days. We have extended the deadline as we need a driver and it would be great if some more people would like to come along and compete.


 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 will be meeting at 5.30pm for a jog at the new sports centre and then playing squash at 6pm

 Paying your debts! 

 As the Exec is due to swap over very soon it is really important to pay everything you owe before this Wednesday to avoid any confusion when the new Treasurer takes over. If you could pay at hustings that would be helpful, if not he will be getting in contact with you soon to tell you how much you owe. 

 Kit re-call

 Another reminder that if you have any club kit or safety kit we would like it returning asap so we can complete the inventory before the new exec takes over.

 Much love,

 The Exec x
