The entry fee for Olympic Selection in October will be £75 for the 3
days of competition. There is no need to send an entry card with the
fee, but I do require all the information you would normally put on the
English Championships 2015
Yorkshire Slalom Committee apologise unreservedly for the confusion over
the results and prizes for the English Championships. We only realised
at the end of the event that we did not have time to do the
calculations; it took a long time even to get the Pan-Celtic and Inter-Regionals
sorted before a midnight prize-giving.
Clearly linking results to English Pan-Celtic results did not work. We
will sort the results and prizes asap, and publish the lists on the
website, with suggestions as to how people can collect their prizes.
Marple Div 3/4 August
The Marple Div 3/4 race listed for 29th and 30th August will now take
place on 5th and 6th September.
Harefield Div 3/4 15th/16th August
Will now be held at Shepperton Weir, on the river Thames, due to construction works at Harefield.
You can come for either day or both days.
Location: Lock Island, Shepperton, TW17 9LW
Please use the car park off Dockett Eddy Lane - drop off boats by the lock
but do not park there.
This is a fantastic site, with camping adjacent to the course. There are
changing rooms and of course food aand drinks served throughout the day.
At this time of year, it is an excellent entry level event, so great for
all those new paddlers that have taken up this sport this year.
There will be no late entry fees, so you can just turn up on the day, but
it would help us plan for the event if you could let us know if you want
an entry. We will have boats to borrow, C2s and C1s as well as K1s, so
you can give another class a try.

The course aims to develop/validate coaching expertise and to develop
coaches who would then be

Are keen to offer opportunities to anyone with a worthwhile project, and
are particularly interested in applications from canoeists and kayakers
who are planning to lead a group (expedition leaders only)

tricky course marks the start of the intense section of the slalom

2016 Slalom Calendar
DRAFT CALENDAR FOR 2016>
HPP events are currently provisional and subject to clarification with
the venue, and there may be further changes if the HPP events change.
Applications to run Div 2, 3 and 4 races next year should be in by 1st
July. Entry forms are in the
Organiser's Pack or you can email the details to me.
With the change to portable points there will be no multi-division
events in 2016. Please give your first
choice of division and your second choice of division. Your first choice
cannot be guaranteed as it will depend on the outcome of the venue
review and on having a suitable event mix.
Applications to run Prem and Div 1 races next year should have been in
by 1 June.
What to do if you get promoted
Don't wait for your promotion certificate - it may take some time,
and you'll want to get on with racing in your new division.
HPP Prem/Div 1 5-6 September
If you have already put in an entry, or intend to,

2015 British Open
The entry fee for the British Open/Premier race has been set at £50.
Entries are now open - please post to Anne Hounslow, Torcross, Hannah's
Lane, Westbury - sub - Mendip, Wells BA5 1JD or email
. There is no need to send
card, but I do require all the info you would normally put on the
card. Entries are not firm until the entry fee
The Slalom Committee have decided that instead of inviting
the top Division 1 ranked athletes, paddle up will be included subject to
there being space up to the strict entry limit of 200.
We are looking for volunteers to help with boat control, safety and
forerunners, please drop me an email if you can help.
There will be no paddling
officials runs, but I will be looking for demo/forerunners.
If you are ranked in Division 1, 2
or 3 you can enter races for the next Division up from your own.
Take the opportunity to experience bigger water and compare yourself
with higher-ranked paddlers!
But please note: The "host" divisions for any race (Div 1s at a
Div 1, Div 1s and Div 2s at a Div 1/2 and so on) have priority over
paddle-up entries until two weeks before the race. Until then, the
organiser can't confirm that you have a place, however early you got
your entry in.
