Congratulations to our new committee members: Grace - our new freshers rep - and Tim - our new Social and Fundraising Convenor - they were elected at last week's EGM. Well done to all those who ran at the EGM - there is certainly a lot of enthusiasm within the club! We have lots to be enthusiastic about over the horizon line
BUCS Wild Water Racing (WWR)!
This my friends, is the ULTIMATE competition of semester 1. On the 21st we travel to Blubberhouses in England and spend the weekend racing down a river, partying and having a flipping good time with all other UK unis.
This competition is PERFECT for beginners, and to be honest it is one of the best weekends to get those good ol’ canoe stories the older years constantly bang on about! For more information and to sign up please email KHad (kerh)! This is NOT a weekend to be missed! Last year kathryn had to sleep in a double bed with a German she met an hour before
On the 14th of November we will be heading to Dundee to take part in a slalom competition… IN A SWIMMING POOL! Again this competition is perfect for everyone and will be followed by a night out in DUNDEE!! Get keen and email KHad to sign up (kerh)!
Our favourite pizza delivery man even pooed in a bush

Why did Erwin Schrödinger, Paul Dirac and Wolfgang Pauli work in very small garages? Because they were quantum mechanics.
All you need is wellies, ideally some washing up gloves and a keenest to help make our river more pleasant to walk along and kayak!

We are creating a fundraising calendar to raise money for the club and we would appreciate it if you have any kayaking pictures could you please send them to Sam (scl8). The kinds of pictures that would be ideal would be scenic shots, kayaking action shots, gnar, or interesting compositions of your own creation. Imagine the sort of thing a relative would want on their wall!
