Re: Annual Consultative Meeting

I really hope I'm right in taking this as a joke and not a serious request from a senile vet (potentially possible given some of the whacky ideas that have been floated in the past) :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: C1 Disaster Imminent?

Fees are already too low to make competitions sustainable, so in my mind this is a non starter. In any case, I don’t believe lowering fees for C1 would have any impact. - We used to have multi class discount; I don’t think that its demise has had any impact on numbers entering two classes. - I don’t...

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

It may not have made any difference to whether others got places.

The organisers had already accepted 15 paddlers over and above the entry limit to squeeze in as many host paddlers as possible, so they may have been relying on a few no-shows to get everyone down the course

Re: Paddler Retention

But how?

Back in the day, university canoe clubs used to attend slalom races en bloc so lots of 18-23yr olds. That just doesn't happen any more. I think slalom has become much more of an individual competitive sport rather than something you did with friends for fun.

Online Entry Bug

About a week ago, someone kindly report an issue with selecting bib info on the entry form. I couldn't reproduce the error. Then yesterday, someone else reported a similar error, but this time they sent me a screen shot and I twigged; I found an error that applied (when certain criteria were met) on...

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

I believe that the lower limit is in part at least because time has to be allowed for Div 1s to have their practice runs - Prems do not get official practice. It is also likely that a little longer needs to be allowed, on average for Div 1s. The impact of champs on the ranking competition was discus...

Re: Grandtully Div.2 Rules Clarification Request

PS I believe the deadline for new rule submissions is 25th October.

PPS for absolute clarity, unlike CP, I am posting as me not a committee member, and the rest of the committee may (or may not; I haven't asked) disagree!

Re: Grandtully Div.2 Rules Clarification Request

I must admit that I could have sworn that there was a requirement to change at least x gates, I wonder whether this used to be a recommendation in the organisers guide or something or just my memory playing tricks :mrgreen: It sounds like Tully had really good reasons for not changing the course on ...

Re: Tweaks for online entries?

A few people have requested a copy facility when setting up the Start List, but I can not remember who they are :oops:

I’ve now added a button to allow you to copy the set up for one day to the other day(s) in the competition.

Re: Vets' Points

Simplicity could be.... 1. Put vets into divisions. 2. Let them paddle in any division either paddle up/paddle down/ paddle correct div. 3. Promote/demote as current divisions 3. winner of each division at end of season This allows divisions for ability but doesn't constrain with limited number of ...

Re: Vets' Points

My thinking is still that a multiplier on points, not time, is the way to go. Paul. Although, as has been said this adds yet another layer of complication to Simply Slalom. The constant tweeking with our rules creates masses of edge cases and this in turn makes everything horribly complex. The resu...

Re: Online Entries and the Sponsor Field - opinions please.

Sponsor does currently go through to SS and is displayed in results I have considered comp specific field and this could be achieved with contents being combined with sponsor for feeding to SS This could stop some of the issues, but my problem is the multi comp page. On that page you would get the f...
