Week 10: liffey trip
« on: November 13, 2018, 22:07:43 »
ALRIGHT OLDIES FRESHERS ONE AND ALL, :discopaddler: :discopaddler: :discopaddler: 8) 8) 8) :D :D :D

Now listen up paddlers, I know its a busy week 10 (FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!  :'( :'( :'( :'( ) but there's still time to get in some mad paddling  :canoe: :canoe: :canoe: before all those cheeky assignments are due. Yes you heard me right because for week 10: you guessed it, It's an age-old Liffey trip. Now I know what you're thinking the Liffey "sure I've done it loads" but think of the new heights sluice will be gushing at or the rushing thrill of Lucan weir. If that's not enough to convince you well maybe this will. Assessments are in WEEK 11 that's right kids its the last chance to get some practice in on a river before the tests start so make sure to come along get some last minute tips so you can ace that bad boy. Everyone is well capable for their level 2 and some are ready for their level 3 so come along and show the others that you are.
Seery's top tip of the week: The days are getting colder so make sure to wrap up warm on and off the water and bring some hot drinks with you.
Details are set below so come along to what will be you guessed it another great trip. Sign up closes Thursday Midday (12pm).

Lots of Emoji love

 When: Sunday 18th November 2018
    Where: Liffey River Co.Dublin
    PLAN OF ACTION: Meet at the boathouse at 10am. Pack up the trailer and hit the road!   

    If you don't know where the boathouse is, it's on Google maps!:

https://goo.gl/maps/e5witrtJsjD2 or
 one of our committee members will be at the UCD Pool entrance at 9:45am and will bring you over!

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

•   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!!!
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!).

Please ensure you have been to at least one pool session before signing up so we know you have completed your swim test!

Otherwise, you'll have to do your swim test in the river...

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.
NOTE TO EVERYONE: make sure to check on the day if post trip pints apply
