Saturday: Beginner’s trip to the Burrs




What is it?

A paddling weekend in Hexham, visiting the River Tyne, and maybe even the River Tees.


When is it?

Friday 5th -  Sunday 7th November


What is happening there?

Apart from paddling on Saturday and Sunday, there are also fireworks on Friday night, and a massive ceilidh (imagine a barn dance but with many, many drunk students..) on the Saturday night.


How much is it and when do I need to pay?

It costs £40 and this includes: camping fees, ceilidh tickets, and a pass to paddle on the river. It also includes already the fuel cost so there’s no need to bring money for travelling.

You need to pay this money to Chris by Friday 22nd October

BUCS White Water Race


The aim of the game is to paddle down a stretch of water in the fastest time possible, either in an individual race or as part of a team. It is as simple as that, paddle as fast as possible! It’s a fun weekend away with a bit of a competitive edge.

Location: River Washburn, North Yorkshire
Date: 27th and 28th November 2010 (End of week 7)
Cost: £18 plus any money for snacks and drinks

Much love and stuff,
