Assessment Training 16-04-16
« on: April 11, 2016, 14:37:11 »
Assessments are coming up in two weeks time so this weekend is your last chance to get in that last minute practice. Instructors will be going through your level 2/3 syllabus so definitely not a trip to miss ;) Obviously if you're not doing assessments you're still more than welcome to come ;D

When: Saturday 16th April
Where: Liffey
The Plan: Meet at the Boathouse at 10am to grab the gear, load the trailer and pile on to the bus!!!

What to bring: 
•   €10! This covers the cost of the bus and instructors 

•   Warm clothes!!!! ….you know the drill at this stage!!
(avoid cotton at all costs! It makes you very, very cold when you’re wet). Anything made out of 'poly-' materials is a good bet!  Fleeces are great! Fleecy pyjamas are even better! Tights make a good layer, especially to pop over your fleecy layers before trying to put on a wetsuit (even the lads should consider investing!!) If you have a wetsuit bring it! If not, the club has a small selection of them...try to get to the boathouse on time to get first pick!

You can never, ever have enough layers!!!
So here’s your essential guide to keeping nice and toasty on the river ; http://forum.ucdcanoeclub.com/index.php/topic,10222.0.html

•   A pair of old shoes! (Or wet booties if you have them). For this trip socks won’t work...the water is going to be low, so if you come out of the boat, you'll be stepping on rocks (which is not fun in socks!) If you don't have a pair, pop into your local Penneys or Tesco and pick up a pair of cheap shoes!

•   Towel and warm, dry clothes for afterwards!

•   Some hot stuff! Flasks of tea, soup, hot blackcurrant...they'll all be much appreciated on the bus home!!  And chocolate bars or cereal bars!!  Nothing better than some sugar after a fun day on the water (avoid things that aren't in wrappers though, cause you won’t want to wait to wash your hands before eating them!).

Sign-up strictly closes at 12:00PM Thursday afternoon. Any late sign-ups will be placed on a waiting list.

Please be reminded that if you sign-up and do not turn up for the trip without good notice, a charge of €5 will be applied.

I highly doubt I'll make it as I think I've got a lifeguard revalidation thing on in Wicklow that morning but if anything changes I'll be there :)
