    WASSUP PARTY PEOPLE!?!

    Its the start of an exciting new year and we will be starting it off full of energy and vigour at the USC Sippy Downs O week Official Market day (Think thats what we are meant to have called it). Anyway, come on down and say hi, whether you are an old activate veteran or completely new to the uni or us.

    We try not to bite.        Often.

    From 10am until 2pm we will be under the marquee peddling the club and sometimes ourselves to anyone who will listen so come say hello, have a chat and maybe learn some of the cool stuff we have in the works for the coming semester...

    And then join us for our first social night of the semester..... details coming soon, check the Activate Community Board on facebook or our website (www.uscactivate.org.au).

    PS. Someone should bring us snacks!

    • 5:30 PM - 10:00 PM
    • Mooloolaba Esplanade

    Welcome guys to the first and traditional O week social night! Beach Bar and Bromances (You dont need to be a bro or a dude to have a good bromance! I wonder what the term for either female or neutral pronoun would be? Sisterhood? Friendships? Matehood? sorry irrelevant thought tangent)

    Back to the point! After Market day it is tradition to come down to Mooloolaba Beach for some slackline-ing, sand and laughs as us leaders let our hair down after the chaos of Market day, and have a chance to catch up with old friends and meet new ones in a relaxed setting.

    Kicking off from 5:30pm ish just down the esplanade from Loo with a view (Map and location will be shared on facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/162982424351825/ )  come down and join us, before those of us of age head to Good Bar just down the road (walking) for a feed and a casual drink.

    Any questions just hit us up in person on Market day or on the facebook event found above. 

    Peace Out!

    PS. All attendees must say their favourite musician, band or actor that begins with B, so start thinking....

    Mandatory Safety Briefing Information

    Monday WEEK 5 (26/03) at a TBA time in EBLOCK (exact room will be advised).

    This meeting is mandatory for all registered attendants of the trip as it will cover the precise itinerary, expectations, what to pack/bring, and all safety and good practice procedures.

    THIS IS MANDATORY, if you cannot attend contact myself (Michael Carr) prior to the meeting (not during or after) to explain why. If you cannot attend then something can usually be sorted out. IF you have NOT talked to Michael prior to event and DO NOT attend, your place on the trip will be forfeit, as stated in the original event description.


    TRIP REGISTRATION WILL OPEN FRIDAY WEEK 3 (16/03) at 12:00AM (0000 - 24 hour time) - LIMITED SPOTS - FIRST IN BEST DRESSED.


    <YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF USC ACTIVATE AND A CURRENT USC STUDENT TO ATTEND>


    When 5th to the 8th of April (Inclusive)

     

    Cost:  $125 includes kayak hire, transport, dinner, camping equipment hire and additional FREE soaking and sinking service.  

     

    4 DAYS, 3 NIGHT of full on MOIST ACTION!

    This trip is subject to weather, departure and return dates may change (including whilst on the trip due to safety).


    What to Bring:

    Remember to pack as little as possible as its going to be a VERY tight fit!

    All belongings will be transported inside the limited room of the kayak and will get probably Super wet due to idiocy (Namely from Hayley, Nicola and Trixie. Not Michael, He wouldnt. Couldnt even, For why would that god among men, surrounded by mere mortals be soo mean as to sink peoples boats?)


    - Day Clothing that can get wet

    - Shoes (Thongs/sandals or CROCS are great for a small hike on sandy path and getting wet daily!)

    - Warm clothes/Pyjamas for the night

    - Sleeping bag

    - Torch

    - Hat

    - Swimmers (Probably the same as normal daytime clothes) & towel

    - Sunscreen

    - Insect repellent (DEET free please due to allergies!)

    - large Plastic bags to keep things dry

    - Food and drink - you'll need enough for 4 days snacks, but keep it compact (Fruit is excellent). No glass of any kind! (Activate will provide dinner for 3 nights and breakfast while on trip)

    - Water bottle 2/3L


    This list is not exhaustive but when you're transporting it, it will be exhausting, so pack light or it gets left on the mainland!


    We need to work as a team and participate in all aspects of the trip. this will guarantee the fun.

    Participation is more important than experience, willing beginners are most welcome.



    THE MISSION- 

    Be prepared for physical activity (FIRST DAY WILL BE HARD)

    AND GETTING WET. DONT GET IN A KAYAK IF GETTING WATER ON YOUR SKIN INCREASES YOUR ANXIETY. 

    DONT GET IN A KAYAK IF YOU HAVE MOISTNESS ANXIETIES AND YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY IDIOTS LIKE US.

    IF YOU CANNOT SWIM OR FEEL COMFORTABLE IN THE WATER, THIS TRIP IS NOT FOR YOU!


    Kayaking experience is preferred but not necessary - However due to long distances Kayaked it is recommended that some Physical fitness (to an extent) is needed.


    The Adventure will start early Friday at the Uni guild before proceeding to Lake Cootharaba. Once on the water we will paddle upstream into the Everglades (18-25Km) to set up a base camp. Depending on the time there are further adventures possible.


    ACTIVATE WILL PROVIDE FULL WEEKEND ASSISTANCE HELPING YOU FALL IN. DID WE MENTION THAT THE ASSISTANCE IS FREE?!

    Day two is kayaking further up the river exploring and potential kayak floating star gazing!

    YOU WILL BE DAMP ALL WEEKEND

    Day three will consist of further kayaking adventures, and a hike to the sandblow for lunch!


    Day four is Pack up and return We will return to the Uni Monday evening, Potentially Late depending on times/tides and speed getting sorted.


    Activate truly believes cranky attitudes can be washed off.
