Hello Everyone!

AGM tonight! If you fancy running for a committee position go for it! Also on the way we have kayaking, balling and kayaking in the Alps! 

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!! Shall we stay St Andrews University Canoe Club (StAUCC) or change to 
St Andrews University Canoe and Kayak (StAUCK). Only one way to find out...

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.. 

FIRST AID COURSE! 23-24th March 
Be prepared for anything, sign up to our 2 day REC Emergency first aid course running Wed 23 - Thurs 24th March, in the second week of the Easter Break. Hosted by the legendary George Fell this course fills you in on all the basics as well as outdoor and paddle sport specific injuries and situations you may run in to (and it's always good fun). Essential for some qualifications (Level 1, 4* Assessment etc), plus it's a  pretty damn useful skill to have under your belt for everyday life! To sign up, or any questions, email Stratts (ejs21). Places limited so first come first served! 

BIG POOL SESSION! Friday 1st April 8:00 - 9.15pm this ain't no April Fool joke! but there may be some shenanigans ...
We have booked a proper sized pool at Cupar to get some more fun coaching and activities!
Limited spaces but we'll drive you there and back, use our fanciest boats, play some polo, practice rolling, playboating and lots of games!
Email/message Andre (ap69) if you're keen to paddle in a proper sized pool! Open to every ability level!

The Big One 2nd/3rd April
Getting cravings for a big trip where all your friends will be there but don't want it to cost the earth?
This is the trip for you! We'll be having a weekend away to the West Coast, staying at a hostel, getting coached professionally.
All heavily subsidised! How subsidised you ask? Well hopefully all you'll have to pay for will be fuel, so around £15 for a weekend away!!!!
That is incredible! So Sign up now with Dre (ap69) and get keen while theres still space!

Aqua Ball: 8 April...Chairs are always taller than you think!
Aqua ball 8th April
Save the date for a great night with other water related clubs! More info to come soon.

I am literally wetting myself a little bit every time I think about it
Summed up by Mr. Jon Wyles: Kayking, stubbies, kayaking, wine, kayaking, banter and more kayaking
