Alps Kit Hire!

Postby brync » Tue May 24, 2011 3:44 pm

So, lovely people, it's that time of year again, where we mosey off to France, make friends* with other universities, drink heavily, and occasionally paddle.**

So I need your money.

As you may know if you've looked at the Hiring Kit Document in the club's Documents page, costs are as follows:

£4/day - boat
£2/day - paddle
£1/day - Each additional item.

This is capped at £7/day, and only counts for paddling days. Obviously, we don't know how many days you're planning on paddling, but if you're paying for 3 days on a 2 week holiday, we'll know something's not quite right (even just hitting the Pole dancing course every day's a good giggle).

I'll be capping kit hire at £35 for the trip, because above that it's starting to get bloody expensive, and we want you to paddle lots ;]. If we could get a deposit of £21, that would be grand. We'll refund you if you use it less, and if you use your kit more, pay more. Makes sense.

If you could pay Charley, Ruth, or myself at polo or any time before the 3rd - Ring me if you want, I can't guarantee sobriety after 4pm on thursday though, and I'll be more than happy to take your funds.


N.B. On a related note, the following people still owe kit hire:
Grimmy - Alps training tagalong: Boat + kit, Washburn: kit = £10
JLW - Alps training tagalong, Washburn last week and this week, wales this past weekend: deck + paddles = £12 (Plus a new pair of carlisles :evil: )
Sarah B - Washburn, Wales last weekend: Cag, deck, blades = £8 (-5 from alps training car park, so just pay us £3)
Paul U - Wales last weekend, Washburn last week: Boat = £8
Naomi N - Wales last weekend: Deck + paddles? = £3?
If you could get it to us soon, that'd be grand. Big loves.

*Nothing rude.

**Losing your boat on Grade 3/Swimming out of holes on GII strictly optional.

why is the picture for this me pined?

Also people need to check and properly sign out kit with a committee member, not just take it as we've got potentially quite a lot of club kit going!

To be fair, I didn't notice that.

At least more than one of us fucked up...
