End of exams river trip

Postby Staples » Tue Dec 05, 2017 12:16 pm

Final Plan:
- meet at shed 11:15 on Friday (if you're in a morning exam on Friday, please pack your gear on Thursday)
- Leaving the shed by 12:00 at the latest

* Bring plenty of layers and a flask of tea/hot chocolate is highly recommended *


Looking to run a river trip at the end of exams, ideally aimed at first-year paddlers but can adjust based on the interest received. Seeing as I'm not doing exams this year, if my dates are off can ye let me know? Numbers will be decided based on who can drive unless the committee can see about organising a bus.

If you have anything specific you'd like to get out of the day (reading water, rescue skills, rope-work, etc.) post it up and we'll accommodate!

When: Provisionally going to say Friday 15th. Shed for 12. Still subject to change atm

Where: Dunkellin (looks like it has water atm) River Guide

Driving:
1. Myself
2. AJ?
3. Laoise
4. Patrick (no racks)
5. Roisin
6. Luke

Paddling:
1. Fergal
2. Erin (Thursday)
3. Tinman
4. Kirsten
5. JRob
6. Katherine
7. Harry
8. Aoife
9. Ciana
10. Tiernan
11. Levin
12. Oisin
13. Carey
14. Lea

I can probably drive if I can steal the car and if it's in the morning I've work Thursday/Friday night, once you've a date sorted I'll ask for the car.

Love this!
Sign me up if it's Thursday. Can do Friday after 12 as well.

Edit: can do Wednesday too...
And 2nd edit: Re. what we want to get out of it - reading water sounds good to me, being able to actually pick lines and not just be a river lemming. That'd be pretty cool. :-)

I wouldn't go on a river trip before an exam; we can't guarantee you'll be back on time

I agree with Laoise, timing can get screwed too easily to it being worth risking.

My last exam is Thursday at 1 so I'll have no energy to paddle that day. If friday suits people Ill be there as I wont be at the ball sadly. Unfortunately I cant transport boats as I don't have roof racks, however I will run shuttle with people if needed.
