Trip to Wales

Friday 1st June 2018 16:00 at Wales

On the first weekend of June we will head to north wales, where we will paddle the Tryweryn and possibly the Dee. 

We will be camping so be prepared for any weather, and will also be cooking for ourselves using a camping stove. The river Tryweryn has a Cafe right on the side of the river and several fun play holes, this makes it perfect for messing around in playboats. Doing the river Dee is dependent on levels and people attending. 

The specific times are yet to be finalized but we will be leaving Durham on Friday afternoon and coming back later on Sunday.

River Trip

Sunday 22nd April 2018 10:00 at A river, Probably the Tees

What better way to start the final term of the year than a river trip, as usual we will see what the conditions are like on the day and choose a river accordingly. 

Everyone is welcome as long as they get to the boathouse at 10 am, we will hopefully be back in Durham by 4 pm.

BUCS POLO

Friday 13th April 2018 19:30 at Nottingham

The last bucs event of the year!!!!!

Get signed up for the biggest polo competition in the university calendar. (Or as dan would like to think the universe!!) 

This is a chance to play against many different university teams (over twenty unis attend this competition) at a level to suit you. There is a mens, women's, b league and an old boys so something to suit everyone. 

Again if you do not wish to play but want to come and support as ever you are more than welcome.  We don't organise this event so you won't be expected to help- just bring banners and pom-poms! 

The more the merrier at this event. In previous years we have done well and it is great to have as many people there as possible from all levels, beginner to seasoned pro. 

We will have a bucs training week before hand so get ready for that as well. We will leave on the Friday 13th April and return on the Sunday. It's also in April and south so nice and warm - yay ! 

BUCS POLO TRAINING WEEK

Monday 9th April 2018 09:30 at Durham /Stockton

This is a chance to come back and refresh your polo skills before the bucs competition at the end of the week. We will have a range of activities from tactics sessions to water based skills and practice games. It is arranged so people also have time to revise for upcoming exams and finish off those last essays of the year. 

It is really important to try and make this week as it gives the est chance of performing well at the competition a session well as practicing as a team. 

Easter Scotland Trip

Saturday 17th March 2018 07:00 at Scotland

This is the first large trip away of the year. We will be heading up to somewhere in Scotland to spend several days experiencing some of the best whitewater in the country. We will be doing a range of rivers for most abilities. We ran a similar trip last year, so if you want to find out more, just ask Molly, Max, Ronan or Philippa.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch.
