This year for our fresher's trip we are making our way down to WEXFORD! We
We have a fun weekend planned with karate lessons (shocker!), team games, and weather permitting, karate on the beach. It’s a wonderful weekend where you’ll have the chance to bond with your UCD Karate teammates and really get to know them.
We will head down in a private coach (departing UCD at 4pm on Friday) and have you back to Dublin in time for tea on Sunday.
Now for the best part, the total price for this trip is €60 (excl. lunch). Our accommodation will have a full kitchen so a team cooked, team dinner is a definite! This price is dependent on numbers, so make sure to bring a friend along too, all they have to do is join karate.
Please make sure you sign up at http://bit.ly/KarateWexford. We will need deposits (€40) in by 4th October in order to finalise cost and bookings. If you can’t make it down to training, please contact us and we will arrange to meet you on campus, or organise an online transfer.
Bus Pickup 18/10/19 16:00
We are all going to be getting the bus down to Wexford together with a private coach. The coach will be departing from UCD at approximately 4pm on the Friday from outside the sports centre. Ideally be there ten minutes before hand so we can depart on time.
We will arrive at our luxurious holiday home at approximately 8pm. The Friday evening will be a chance to relax and socialise with some pizza, and get some rest for all the activities on Saturday.
We’ll be getting up bright and early at 8am for breakfast to get ready for our sports day at 9pm. There’ll be many exciting activities and we’ll be competing to see who will be crowned winners. (PS. The loser has to do the dishes later )
At 3pm we’ll finally have a chance to do what we do best, with a 2 hour karate seminar. So be sure to bring your karate gear for that!
We’ll be returning to the holiday home for 5:30pm to enjoy a delicious dinner cooked by our very own club members. After that we’ll be heading to the local pub at 8pm to have a few drinks with live music.
We will be waking up at 9am on Sunday for a hearty breakfast before heading out at 10am for a hike in the beautiful Wexford countryside. At 1pm we’ll be catching the coach to take us back to UCD for around 4pm-5pm.
What to bring
Well this is Ireland, so be sure to pack rain gear and appropriate footwear. This is a karate trip after all so bring gear to train in and a towel.
And that’s all!
That’s the plan for the weekend. We can’t wait to see you all there, and we guarantee you’ll have an amazing time!
