Re: 6.2 Entry Fees

Or we just forget these increase and encourage organisers to look at their realistic costs and make better use of enhanced entry fees. Particularly when those events are seeking support for making a loss the previous year. Yes there is concern that an enhanced fees may discourage entries, but I thi...

Don’t forget that paddle up does not only apply to 1s to Prem, but also to 2s to 1 and 3s to 2
Yes but I fear this will just lead to a “Nope” button and that will be that.

Certain races will have no paddle ups just because the organiser now has the ability to stop it

Re: 6.7 Organiser Discretion on Accepting Paddle Ups

If there must be paddle ups then only the top 5 or maybe 10 should have the right to have a race, to get them ready for Prem...I suppose...if pushed. That’s exactly how it is right now. I’m sure if the paddlers have the right percentile to paddle to already enable them to paddle up they should be s...

Re: C1 Disaster Imminent?

Super frustrating for the ladies C1 at LV though. Entries were quorat but then a cancellation makes it not so. Faster first runs that were cancelled.

Re: HPP Prem/Div 1 - Sept 21/22

Those who have entered the Div1 as a Div2 paddle up are now as Champs. Will they still be able to get paddle up points?

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

Welsh J12, J14 & Masters/Vet leg is only in a few weeks. I’m looking after the Welsh team and there is plenty of keenness from paddlers & parents. With pretty much nearly all of the welsh team in div1 hosting it in Div2 brings it’s own difficulties but we have entries and from a Welsh perspective al...

Re: Extreme Slalom / Boater X 'early' warning

Is the Junior J16 basically 15 year olds like Slalom Team Selection and no Under 15s?

Re: How Much is too much for Div 1s

I'd enter my daughter for sure and I suspect you'd get a high entry. You have 40+ people wanting to do the Paddle Up at the Jnr Selection. Clubs shouldn't be making a loss either We talking 2019 or 2020? We have already lost one race and I view Washburn as being a bit iffy with water. Personally I'd...

Re: How Much is too much for Div 1s

Lee Valley Jnr Selection is £25
Tees £25
Cardiff Prem is £35

Artificial venues cost money but I wouldn't expect to have to pay more than the fees that are paid out in the Prem races but the opportunity to race a double Div1 at Lee Valley would be excellent for £50

Re: ACM Motion 6.5 Extreme Slalom Rules

I think this is viewed as a potential Olympic sport that would obviously feature at the slalom venue. If WWR or Freestyle ran it it wouldn’t get near the Olympics would it. Traditionally held alongside freestyle events yes but going forward I can only see it moving forward with slalom Why can’t they...
