Pool sessions

The pool session on Sunday is cancelled due to the friendly polo tournament, but feel free to still turn up and cheer us on! The games are starting from 3.30pm


Wednesday – We are running a trip to Halton for all abilities and this is a chance to work on some river skills. If the safety levels are good we may run the rapids but this will be decided on the day. Experienced members should be able to do this if we have time. We will be leaving the sports centre at 1pm. Sign up on the forum!

Saturday – This week we are having a trip to the upper Lune for any members that are experienced beginners and upwards. If you are not sure you would be classed as an experienced beginner, just have a word with either of the river captains, Aileen and Dave, or our safety officer, Rosie. We will be leaving at the slightly later time of 10am, so you get a nice lie in! Sign up is now on the forum.

Alps 2011 – Sign up for the Alps is still on! You have till the 21st of March to sign up and pay your deposit to Rhys!


Wednesday – Cheese and wine night! We are meeting in Furness SCR at 6.30pm, Bridget is kindly providing the cheese and if you can bring along your own wine we can swap and try each others! (You don’t need to feel inclined to drink, its fine not to have any wine and just come down to socialise!) If you could sign up on the forum then Bridget will know how much cheese to bring.

End of term meal – Sign up for this closes 21st march and you will need to pay by then!


LU friendly polo tournament 20th March – People playing on the teams should be at the pool for 2.45pm, and the games will start at 3.30pm. If anyone would like to come down before matches start and help set up it would be greatly appreciated! Even if you have never been to polo before feel free to come down to cheer us on and watch a few games (as it’s always fun to watch people we know being beaten by twelve year olds)

Polo rashies – A sign up will be going on the forum soon for anyone who would be interested in buying one of the new rashies.

Roses – Sign up will shortly be going on the forum, so when it’s up if you could say whether you would like to take part in polo or slalom, or just come along to spectate.

Much love,

Your Exec x
