Hello Everyone!

This is one of my last emails, awww, as we have our AGM on the way so if you fancy running for a committee position then get thinking about a speech! As standard we have lots on the go, I hear BUCS polo is great chat.


Ordinary general meeting! 

The current committee will tell you about their roles and what they've been up to over the year. It's a great opportunity to find out more about the different positions you can run for before our AGM next week! There will be lots of opportunity for you to ask the current committee questions about their positions too :) 

Come whether you are thinking for a running for a position or not - chat will be great and we will finish with an incredible flat crawl (hopefully with lots of challenges!)

AGM: 9 March, 19:15, School 1
This is it!! The Big One. Come along and vote on the future of the club - stand for one of our prestigious 'BNIC' committee positions, or grill the candidates with your probing questions...

School 1 will host us for the meeting immediately afterwards. We will be first voting on our BIG NAME CHANGE!! (If you've avoided this chat, well done - more info to follow at the OGM).

Then we get down to it - each candidate is asked for a one minute speech (apart from Captain and Competitions, which is two minutes) to tell us why they'd be great for the job. After a few questions from the audience, we'll vote our favourite in. 

WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT: Everyone should consider a committee position if it's something they are interested in - it's a lot of fun, you're given lots of room to make the role your own - and, of course, you get to be a pretty massive deal in the St A boating scene..

Donate your Bra for Charity!!! 
As you have already probably already heard, canoe are doing a bra collection in the hope of giving a pretty significant donation to charity 'Against Breast Cancer'. This is a little reminder for everyone to get raiding through that underwear and get your friends/flat mates/ family involved too. Keep your eye on the fb event for more info on when you can donate and to find out more about the charity we are supporting. Thank you for all the donations we have already received!!

Stay keen!
