Post AMV Polo

Join me and Noah after our AMV exam for some polo, because who needs to be able to solve IN/IN PDEs when you can throw a ball. Everyone welcome as long as your comfortable in a polo boat :)

Thursday Morning Fitness

---**NOTE: The river levels have the potential to get a lil *spicy* this time of year so the session may be called off last minute **----

Slightly later than normal this week, if you would prefer it to be earlier let Madeline/Josh know.

Meet at the boathouse at 8am.

THE WEDNESDAY WARRIORS RETURN AT MC 13:30-15:00

The usual Wednesday session! Open to beginners and is simply a really chill couple hours on the River Wear. If you want to get into kayaking or simply have a fun afternoon on the river this is probably the session for you!

Please bring a fleece to wear on the water, spare shoes, plenty of spare clothes and a towel. It is best not to wear jeans on the water since these shrink when wet.

See you there!
