Week 11: Assessments on the Liffey
« on: November 19, 2018, 12:26:09 »
Alright disco Paddlers , afro.gif afro.gif afro.gif :discopaddler: :discopaddler: :discopaddler:

Now i know that assignments are looming and examinations are coming near and you don't know if you want to cry, laugh or cry again (I KNOW FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE :'( :'( :'( ) but fear not, i have something that could put you all in a good mood. Getting your first  OR next level from Canoeing Ireland!!!!!
That's right kids, this week as many of you know is the WEEK 11: Assessments taking place on the wonderful river liffey. There will be level 2 and 3 assessments taking place and i cant stress enough how all our freshers should be trying to get their level 2's this week and anyone that's ready should be attempting their level 3. Pool will be dedicated to helping people going for the test so its never to late to give it a go.
Please find all the information below:

lots of emoji love,
Conor ;) ;) :D :D :D ;) ;) 8)

 When: Saturday 24th 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
