What do you get if you bring together a massive group of students from all over the country, get them drunk and put them down one of the best whitewater courses in the country? NSR!!!
NSR is the National Student Rodeo - the largest freestyle competition and student paddling event in the UK. There are competitions for all levels of paddlers in all sorts of boats. And you don't even have to paddle if you don't want to. It's a great event to come along and watch, and laugh at the inevitable carnage.
Then there's the party. Some people say it's the best paddling party in existence. And even better, it's fancy dress! This year the theme is 'countries'. So don your best flags and national dress, and let's go have fun!
You can compete in as many classes as you want: K1, C1, squirt boat, duo, C2 (the freestyle C2 team from Durham completely smashed the competition last year, coming a clear first in the class).
Dates and prices have not been finalised yet. It is likely to be the first weekend in March, and last year the basic ticket was £56, which is a bargain price for such a great weekend.
