May Dip: 1st May 20:00 till Sunrise
It's not essential to do it naked; some see it as optional
Get invoked in a university tradition which has existed for generations; if you want to atone for your academic sins or just fancy a party join canoe club for a classic May Dip House Crawl; see the fb event Fun fact: the may dip along with the Gaudie commemorate John Honey who rescued 5 men from a sinking ship

Well done to our team at BUCS polo, polo, polo last weekend!

End of Year Bonfire! : 21st of May

There is no better way to celebrate the end of exams than the bonfire on East Sands. We will also have the end of year awards so look out for the poll which is coming out soon! The prizes are generally for memorable things (kayak related or not) which have happened throughout the year. The exact categories are still being decided. I think I won 'quote of the year' last year with 'NSR'

Courses and Training

What Courses/Training would you like next year? this section is coming to you from your Dev Officer in the Czech Republic where it is sunny but kayak-less :(
Early to start thinking about it but the best coaches bet booked up quickly!
Every year the Club and AU subsidise courses so you only have to pay 1/3 of the cost! This is incredible and not a deal you could get any other way.
