Funky Thursdays presents - The STAUCC Rodeo and Pub Quiz - Tomorrow!
You have mad river skills, you have mad hero skills and now it's time to demonstrate your mad, rad freestyle skills! We'll have music, funky boats and so much laughter your ribs will hurt! We'll have competitions for the boys, for the girls and a beginners category, there's something for everyone! Afterwards in the pub there will be an exceptionally awesome pub quiz, £1 per team (of four), as well as the announcements for the winners of the 'Rodeo'! Many prizes to be had. Be there or be square!

Rubik's Cube Pub Crawl!- Next Wednesday!
Get ready for the semester 2 pub crawl! Watch out for more details in next week's email, and an event on Facebook. It will be Rubik's Cube themed so get to the charity shops and get yourself something in red, green, blue, yellow, white and orange! Guaranteed to be the biggest Rubik's Cube night Canoe St Andrews has ever had.

Tasty Bake Sale! - Wednesday 14th March
Next week we'll be having our club fund-raiser bake sale! If you'd like to make and donate baked goods or are available to man the table, let me know at the pub. Your help is very appreciated! - Kirstie
Beginner training
To confirm rumours that have been whizzing around, we are having a beginners training weekend on the 17th and 18th of March. This is aimed at people who have started paddling this year, or are at about that level. It is led by a professional coach near Roy Bridge and is an amazing opportunity to boost your river skills. You'll get to paddle new rivers, stay in a bunkhouse and come back buzzing about paddling.There are only 6 places so email Amy (ak632) NOW to get a place.

There is also space for other intermediate/advanced people if anyone wants to go out west for a weekend paddling - contact Jamie (jd523) if you are interested.

Intermediate Easter trip - Monday to Wednesday in week 1 of Spring Break

We're planning an awesome trip out west for the first 3 days of Easter break (that's Monday 26th to Wednesday 28th) aimed at those of you who are just getting a taste for intermediate paddling. So, if you fancy getting wet in the west then email Jamie (jd523) to bag a space! If you have any questions then get in touch...

Level 1
Just a reminder that there are a couple of spaces left on the Level 1 coaching course from 2nd to 6th April. It's a massive CV booster, essential for working in the world of outdoor education and an absolute steal at only a quarter of the price (about £62) - great opportunity not to be missed! Contact Amy (ak632) asap to get a place.

BUCS Polo - 21st/22nd April

Polo competitions, camping and partying in the beautiful Doncaster sunshine! What more can you want!? I need to know asap if you want to be on a team, come talk to me in the pub if you have questions. Supporters very welcome! Polo clashes with the Club Development weekend so don't double book yourselves. - Kirstie
Got receipts for recent trips? Get them to me ASAP so I can price up. It is your money after all! I'm in the pub at the usual times - Jon
