Hi Everybody,
Hope your Wednesday mornings are splendid, here's the latest from StAUCC.
Funky Thursdays - Take 2! i <3 LM
After a successful funky boat session last week, this week we bring you the extra-special ''Hero'' session. Whether you're a surfing Superman, a hucking Hulk or a Jaws/Flipper/Reptile fan (see here), there will be loads of cool rescuing skills to learn and we'll be on hand to help! The pool session is 8.45-9.45 as usual before the pub. Please be on time, we have much to do! To the Batmobile! -Kirstie x

Bring your best tiger stripes and most colourful parrot feathers to 70 Watson Avenue at 8.45pm for music, facepaint, pre-drinks and games! BYOB. Hakuna Matata!

Rafting Race! - Fundraising for Sense Scotland
Calling all adventurers... As you may already know Sense Scotland Charity are running a rafting race on the Tay on Sunday 25th March. It looks like amazing fun, and a chance for the canoe club to try something new, so it would be fab for us to get a team together! We will be doing lots of fun and exciting fundraising activities to collectively raise £125 per person taking part. Plus a BBQ is included at the event and medals if we raft extra fast!
Please email (sed32) to sign up asap or for more information.

VHF Radio training course
Jonny is organising a training course for using VHF radios on Thursday 8th March. The 1 day course is the minimum requirement for people who want to use VHF radios at sea. This is perfect for people wanting to get into sea kayaking or sailing on the sea and is a good qualification to have if you want to work at coastal outdoor centres.

The St Andrews Women for Women International Society (an organisation which helps rehabilitate women after violent conflict and raise awareness of women's issues) is holding a frisbee tournament on the beach on International Women's Day.

See your lovely faces at the extra fun pool session tomorrow!  In the British Isles, it is a tradition that women may propose marriage only on leap years. Supposedly, a 1288 law by Queen Margaret of Scotland (then age five and living in Norway), required that fines be levied if a marriage proposal was refused by the man; compensation ranged from a kiss to £1 to a silk gown, in order to soften the blow.
