Week 6- Wicklow Trip
« on: February 26, 2019, 18:39:03 »
Alright freshers, oldies and Johnnie Enright, :discopaddler: :discopaddler: :discopaddler: ;D ;D ;D

For Week 6 we are taking the long awaited trip down the Co. Wicklow. The was an excellent turnout last week and good fun had so make sure to come along and get some much needed practice in before our UCD Ball in a few weeks. Everyone wants one up on all the others so use this as your chance to get back on the water.  afro.gif afro.gif evil.gif evil.gif ^-^ ^-^Make sure to let freshers know and sign up quick as spaces are tight.Sign up closes Friday Midday (12pm). All the details are set out below so make sure to come along

Details are set below so come along to what will be you guessed it another great trip.


 When: Sunday 2nd March 2019
    Where: Clara Vale section Co. Wicklow
    PLAN OF ACTION: Meet at the boathouse at 10am. Pack up the cars 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!

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.

What to bring:
  €10! This covers the cost of the trip

•   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 Friday 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

hope everyone is keeping well and is still keen on the old paddling remember nothing better than getting out on the water.
