Hallowe'en River Trip!
« on: October 24, 2016, 10:17:11 »
Prepare for a scare  evil.gif

When: This Saturday 29th of October
Where: We're heading to the Boyne or maaaaaaybe Wicklow (if the levels are good)
Plan: Meet at the boat house at 10am for the trailer pack.

Additional info: BYOHCFR (bring your own hangover-chicken-fillet-roll), they will not be supplied.

What to bring: (I think ye all know by now ...)

  €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!  (I mean does anyone really read this now .... )

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! (Honestly, fair play if you are still soldiering on and reading this ... Or you're a Fresher ..)

•   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!).

So, howl and get your name down!

Yes please! Someone should probably confiscate my drink after midnight, though.
