Freshers 2018!
« on: September 26, 2018, 16:04:32 »
It's that time of year again everybody! Who's excited for one of the highlights of the year!
Fresher's this year is going to take us to the exotic coast of Bundoran Co. Donegal.

It all kicks off on Friday the 12th of October at 5:30pm in the Student Bar for some pre-Bundoran-pints. You'll find us to the left of bar as you come in the door.
We'll be waving goodbye to UCD at 6:30pm and hello to the session train for the rest of the weekend.
Attempts at sanity, normality and sobriety shall only be accepted once we return to UCD once again on Sunday evening.

So you aren't left disappointed get your €60 to a committee member ASAP to secure your place. Committee will be accepting money  at lunch times, any pool session, paddle fit or Saturday trip. If you would prefer to transfer the money the IBAN is: IE35BOFI90102894135909. If you are transferring the money make sure you sign you name on the transaction or I will come for you.

This price is great value for money and includes:
-Accommodation. This will be tight so be prepared to share beds, ayy lmao.
- The banter bus (drink allowed) to and from Bundoran on Friday followed by a good ol' fashioned UCDCC fresher's-warming party
- A morning of of surf kayaking on Saturday
- Fancy Dress ready session on Saturday night! (Anyone not dressed up will be forced to sit through a completely improvised 3 hour presentation from Conor Seery on the do's and don'ts of the emoji use  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:)
- A possible River Trip on the way home on Sunday
- Breakfast will be provided on both mornings and dinner will be cooked by our in house chefs on Saturday night.



Now, in case your mammy is no longer packing your suitcase, please bring:

 Any Air Mattresses, Sleeping mats or Sleeping bags you own. bed space will be at a premium!

•   Money for any snacks, chocolate, alcohol, or last minute costume props you may need  :police:

•   For kayaking: Warm clothes!!!! (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!!! Remember to bring enough gear for TWO days' paddling.
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). The water is going to be low (on the beach), and those stones really aren't the most fun!! If you don't have a pair, pop into your local Penneys or Tesco and pick up a pair of cheap shoes!

•   Towel(s) and warm, dry clothes for both days!

NB if you have not been at a pool session you must attend one before going to Bundoran to do a capsize drill and swim test.

If you have any questions at all feel free to message the page on fb or email ucdcanoeclub@gmail.com
