​Hello Everyone!
Good Luck in exams for those of you who have them, the club will still be at the pub on Thursday, as a great revision break.

Kayaker of the Week: JJ because it's his last week in Scotland *sniff*

Scottish Unis (SSS) Canoe Polo : 6th-7th February

Starting Friday evening at Pinkston Watersports in Glasgow- one of the best Polo tournaments of the year- competing against other unis from across Scotland. Hosted by Glasgow Uni, we stay the night with members of their club for a great night out on Friday with all the other Scottish Unis. Ideal for anyone interested in polo (beginners welcome), or improving inter club relations...! More polo on the Saturday and a Ceilidh (and maybe even second night out) to follow! Get keen, and email Stratts (ejs21) for info or to sign up
A new feature this week: Gina's diary extract
BUCS Slalom 2015! : 14th-15th February
Possibly the biggest and best competition of the year (it's my favourite anyway!). We head down to the Tees Barrage and complete runs of the artificial course aiming to get gates (sometimes just the ones that are conveniently in front of you...) and get down the course as quickly as possible! Runs last under 3 minutes and you can have a safety boater with you, as well as copious on the bank safety, and a team of excited paddlers running alongside the course with a megaphone, so a great opportunity for almost all abilities to try out slalom grade 2/3 white water in a safe environment! We will be staying in a warm, dry travelodge (so sophisticated)- the best night's sleep you will ever get on a kayak trip! What's more, it's a really cheap weekend away as we massively subsidise costs, hurrah! Email Stratts (ejs21) to find out why you should totally come, or to sign up!

Well Done!
James, Tim and Sam deserve a big well done for their performance at the PWC quiz. They came 3rd out of 12 apparently.

A special request from JJ for goat of the week - poor goats. I love this video, so that's why it's getting included.
