RECSPO Promises Another Year of Fun and Games
The Clubs of RMCC, whether they be aimed at athletic endeavor, like the Competitive Clubs are, or at exploring the world, or simply at having fun, help to make the College experience what it is. This past week, as happens every year, Cadets had the opportunity at the RECSPO to see just what is available to see just what is available. For the First Years still on FYOP this was a chance to see the full scope of what the College offers (which is also something for them to look forward to once FYOP is done), while for the returning Cadets it was a chance to perhaps try something new.
The Clubs available at the College this year are Astronomy, Broomball, Climbing, Chess, Curling, Debating, Judo, Expedition, Motorcycle, Paintball, Power Flying, Scuba, Skydiving, Stage Band, Theatre, Triathlon, War Games, Water Polo, Windsurfing, and the Yacht Club.
Competitive Clubs include Running, Rowing, Sailing, Swimming, Women’s Rugby, and Taekwondo.
