Annual Consultative Meeting

Post by Canadian Paddler » Fri Oct 11, 2019 10:46 am

Yes folks it's that time again. Once again I am calling for any club based motions for the ACM.

Is there something bothering you? Something we could do better? or have you found an error in the yearbook? If so get your motions to the Secrtary of the Slalom Committee ([url][/url] before 25th October so they can be on the Agenda

All spelling errors are intentional and are there to show new and improved ways of spelling old words. Grammatical errors are due to too many English classes/teachers.
Old. Fat. Slow. Bad tempered. And those are my good points

The following is proposed by Proteus CC:
We have a very inactive and dysfunctional Vets section and as such we have discussed extensively and honed the following proposal. Do we have a club to second this:

Vets a fairer ranking system;
Lets face it the lower age limit for Vets means some are only just out of short trousers, whilst at the upper end some are well into dribbling porridge down their vest every morning.
We think we need some sort of handicap system so;
If you have ever paddled as an international you have +0.5 of a second added to your time for ever year you competed at international, likewise +0.4 for every year in Prem, +0.3 for every year in div 1 and +0.2 for every year in div 2.
You can have time taken off your total. If you turn up at start missing some of your equpment, so on a sliding scale;
-0.2 of a second for forgetting your bib, -0,3 for your helmet, -0.5 for your BA, -1 for your paddles and -2 for your boat . This is trumped by getting to the start and then getting off and going back to the carpark because you have forgotten why you went to the start in the first place, this is worth -10 seconds.
You can earn -20 seconds by turning up to an event on the wrong weekend, although we are open to ideas on how we could police this.

I would certainly agree we have inactive and dysfunctional Vets....

Joel, you were already 20 seconds clear of the div 2 men at Symonds Yat, you’re just being greedy now!

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:

I'm afraid we can't second it because we will most likely forget to turn up at the ACM as usual...

I don't see a time allowance for stopping for a comfort break in the middle of a run? (event organisers to provide portable toilets mid way down every course)
