Re: Canal polo goals

If we take them down at any stage, I think it would make sense to hang the goals just upstream of Wards. There are lamp posts on the river right side, so you could use them to tie the ropes off. And then it'll never get in the way of the rowers. Maybe there is some other issue that I haven't conside...

Re: Pool Session (rolling) 14th Feb

Here's a pretty good video that shows how to roll, if people would like to watch it before the pool it might help! :)

Re: Slalom trials for varsities

Yep I should be there, unlike Staples I would never threaten my favourite C1 slalom Irish team paddler, in fact I'd go as far to say that I'd be inclined to buy them their favourite drink on a night out if at all possible :wasntme:

Staples wrote:Yup, why not hold both trials on the same day though?


Because we're probably going to be doing loads of laps of Jury's so you'd be too tired/cold to have freestyle trial afterwards.

Re: Level 3/4 skills lower day

I was talking about Thursday, but I'm free both days. Last time me and Brad went, shed for 1 hr 20 min before low tide had us waiting at the rapids for a bit. So 10:20 shouldn't be late for Thursday or anything. Hope I didn't interrupt the thread btw! Continue on signing up people :-)
