Week 11: Assessments!
« on: April 18, 2018, 19:03:45 »
So, its that time of the year ASSESSMENTS level 2 and 3 :police: ;) ;) ;) ;D ;D ;D :discopaddler: will be taking place this weekend!  We really encourage everyone, especially freshers, to take a shot at getting at least your Level 2. If you're interested in giving it a go but you're not sure what the assessment involves, make sure to come along to a pool session this week and we'll talk you through it. we have a load of people to go through level requirements with everyone!!!!
Details are as follows!

When:Sunday 22nd April
Where: Liffey

Cost: €15! (€10 for the trip, €5 for the cert)

PLAN OF ACTION: Meet at the boat house at 10am

If you don't know where the boat house is by now, it's on Google maps!: https://goo.gl/maps/e5witrtJsjD2

What to bring:
 
•  Warm clothes!!!! It's very, very cold these days so bring as many layers of thermals as you have!
(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! Dry shoes to change into after!

•   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!! Still reading this? Fair play... 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!).

        Bring any medication you might need, and inform a committee member if there are any conditions you think we should know about.
