Re: Isn't it strange?

Hi Dee Obviously no one knows when canoeing can resume and when races can resume. It may be that there are no races run at all in 2020 in which case we just wait until 2021 to restart. (I haven't considered what will happen if this runs into 2021 as can't think that far ahead yet). Whenever we resum...

Re: British Canoeing - Club Consultation Survey (Not the same as Stronger Together 2021-2025 survey)

Is this really an insurance issue? What exactly does an individual paddler competing need insurance for? How could anyone possibly claim against an individual paddler and what evidence would be needed? There are lots of people at an event who are not insured e.g. volunteer judges and some paddling n...

Re: British Canoeing - Club Consultation Survey (Not the same as Stronger Together 2021-2025 survey)

I strongly believe that any changes should include automatic cover for all competitors at entry level events, ie div 4 and 3/4. Our rules would then require paddlers applying for a bib to have full membership as they do currently, but would not need to worry about who was and wasn’t a member. (If n...

Re: Non quorat classes and paddle ups

I don't think K1W and C1W should as a general rule be compared to mens classes. If you did a statistical analysis of the results over the last 5 years, you would find that the variance in women classes v mens classes depends on the length and difficulty of the course. I think the current arrangement...

Re: 6.5 Junior Equipment

Completely agree Davy

Jonny's coaches and fellow paddlers never considered that his boat was unfair and it is hard to undo bad habits if equipment is too big.

Sadly, there was a parent who did try to cause trouble by claiming this was cheating which seemed a tad harsh on a 9 year old :(

Re: 6.7 Organiser Discretion on Accepting Paddle Ups

I think part of the issue is combined Prem/Div 1 races where the Prem is always on the Saturday and the Div 1 on the Sunday. Paddlers travelling want to compete both days particularly if you have travelled 300 miles each way. It is also beneficial to your Sunday race if you have raced on the Saturda...

Re: 6.2 Entry Fees

Peter Your suggestions seem very reasonable. So, I would see the amendment to the motion being split into 3 for price increases for Divisions as follows a) Prem/Div 1 b) Div 2 c) Div 3/4 I did like the suggestion that the increase gets phased in over 2-3 years. I think Prem/Div 1 can increase immedi...

Re: 6.2 Entry Fees

Div 1 and Prem entry fees These events are national events where committed paddlers attend races all over the country and entry fees are only a small percentage of the actual costs of the sport. I think most paddlers will accept the increase in fees at this level if it is explained why the fees are...

Re: 6.2 Entry Fees

So, could we have recommended fees, minimum and maximum fees and each organiser charges what they think is reasonable based on previous years income and expenditure? This would allow for some of the variation in costs and numbers. It is probably impossible to have the one size fits all model going f...
