BUCS!
So once Tyne Tour is over and we have all recovered there are still loads of chances to go boating! One of these comes in the form of BUCS, an awesome opportunity for you to compete for the university, by gaining valuable BUCS points.

So basically every year Durham kindly organise a white water race on the Washburn (this is a grade 2 river). The majority of you are good enough so it's definitely worth competing.

The date of the competition is the 23rd November and entry must be completed by the 7th November, please can these given to me or Andy preferably as soon as possible but by the 6th so we have time to process and sort it. You will need to give us information like which event your competing in, name, student number and a little bit of money.

Categories are:

K1 Mens, and Women's
K1 Team
K1 Mixed Teams
K1 Open Teams

The event is subsidised but prices are to be confirmed.

The website for more info is:

Thanks!
Sam

That’s all as always catch LUUCC on Facebook for any questions have a good week!!
