Re: Abandoning the season?....

I don’t think the season should be abandoned; at the end of the year those paddlers who have done four events results should be divided by four, you then get an average for the four events; then add this onto the result and if enough points for promotion is gained for promotion they should be promot...

Re: 6.1 Veterans Trophies

I think it was previous for the highest rank 2/3 vet man; I think it makes sense to award to the highest vet K1M who has never paddled in Div 1 or Prem; and maybe look at providing a similar trophy for the women???? For example I have just been demoted to div 2, but I have previously paddled in div ...

Re: Promotion and 50's

I recall a div 3 at Windsor, waves were huge, house size. It was hard to know if you went through all the gates as it was so fast. I think I won with a fifty.

Re: Catch ups

If you miss gates making your run time shorter, so not done the course and then catch the paddler in front, if you don’t give way you should be disqualified if you don’t give way!!!!

Re: Vets - New Points System Please

Do the points need to be compared to the ranking competition points? At some competitions I have seen the vets all being awarded the same points, but the results quite a difference?? Just a thought???

Re: Sshhh – it’s a secret! The Pan Celtic

The Pan Celtic event at Bala Mill was enjoyed thoroughly by the J12, J14 and Vets, everybody was keen to do keen team events, with the youngsters so keen that they organised there own England Junior Teams. It was good that this event was held on water allowing J12 athletes to compete. It was good to...

Re: Vets' Points

Just an idea, if we say the average vet is 30 per cent slower at prem and 25 per cent at div 1; so the results at prem score with will be less 30 per cent, then compare result to the points of prem; and at div1 score less 25 per cent then compare result to the points of div 1; and in div 2, 3 and 4 ...

Re: Division 2/3 Veterans Trophy

You could give the trophy to the highest placed vet who has never been ranked in div 1 or prem; gives this group of vets a chance of a trophy, as they are now racing div 1/prem vets at a lot of div 2 events.

Re: How Much is too much for Div 1s

I think quite a bit of work has been done to develop training slots for paddlers and that is great if you live in the London area.

Re: How Much is too much for Div 1s

We need to develop slalom sites with permanent gates, accessible to all for training: I feel a div 1 on the Olympic site realistically is for squad paddlers only who have trained there? I feel a bit of investment is needed in the grassroots.

Re: ACM Motion 6.2 Paddle Up Priority

When only the top of Div 1 got invited to paddle in the British Open it was the end of the season, and promotion was only at the end of the season, so most of those paddlers were going to paddle in Premier Division the next season; not sure the same principle can be applied to paddle ups?

Re: VET points Plan B

I think the current system seems to be working, it seems quite competitive. If we add points I think if may deter some paddlers.

Re: Demotions

There are plenty of races, if you choose not to race without good reason, you should be expected to be demoted.

Re: Shepperton Div 1 - 24th/25th Feb

Hi we have accommodation booked for Thursday 22nd until Sunday 24th at a Hotel at Shepperton, accommodation for 2 adults and 1 child; apparently not refundable; if anybody wants to train for the div 2 or would like a hotel near London, make me an offer, I paid £204.00. Warren Lodge Hotel.
Thanks Rose
