Organisers won't accept your entry, or give it any priority, until they get your card and your cheque. DON'T email them "to book a place", you are wasting their time and your own.

Organiser's Pack 2017


Yearbook Packing

Hi All, it's that time of year again to pack the all-important Yearbooks. We will be packing them at the British Canoeing offices at HPP from 9am this Sunday morning, and it really is a job where many hands make light work. If you can spare any time at all please come and give us a hand.

S&SCC Mini Series 2017

Since the 1970s the Stafford and Stone Canoe Club has organised a series of races as a pre-season warm up. The three Mini Slaloms are handicapped to give paddlers of all abilities a chance of winning - an ideal opportunity for paddlers of all abilities to look at what they need to focus on before the official race season begins. The course is suitable for all divisions from div 4 up to prem, and with the handicap system the overall winner of the series can be from any division, gender or category.

This year’s mini was won by local paddler Thomas Mayer, who achieved two of the top ten spots in the Grand Final as he was competing in both K1 & C1.


Have You Got Your Bib?

Quite a lot of paddlers who are racing at Shepperton haven't.

And please, apply properly. One Bib Officer writes: I am getting a lot of incomplete/inadequate applications this year. One this morning returned last years bib, a cheque and a scrap of paper with an SCA number on it. I only knew who it was by the bib number.

We have to have a completed form, with signature/s!

• Transaction fees are calculated at 2.2% of the entry fees + 45p per transaction.

• You can put multiple entries in your basket before paying if you are entering a C1 and K1, say, at the same competition. Please put both entries into your basket before paying as this will save you 45p.

• You must be a ranked paddler to enter online. If you do not know your bib number, just start typing your name in the drop down select box. You will not be able to submit an online entry if you do not currently have a 2017 bib number, so for reinstatement you need to get requests for re-ranking and bib applications in promptly, and those promoted mid-season will need to apply promptly for their new bibs or enter by post.

• Immediately after successful entry of your card details, your entry will be added to the list on the competition home page. Later, when payment is taken a few weeks before the competition, you will receive an emailed receipt.

• Paddle-ups can add their entry to the waiting list. You will receive an email requesting online payment if a place becomes available.

• You can also enter as an official online. Paddlers who have entered as officials or on the waiting list can remove their own entry – reselect your class and bib and click the button.

If you have any feedback/questions on the online process then feel free to post on the chatter boards or email .

Applying for Your New Bib

K1W Prem and Div 1: Sally will be at the Shepperton Div 1 and the Tully Prem and will bring bibs if you send her the paperwork before the races.

K1W Div 2 and 3: Tanya will be at the Matlock slalom if any div 2/3 K1 women want to apply and collect their bibs from her there.

K1M Prem: Tracy will take bibs to the first Prem race (Tully) but only if you send her the paperwork beforehand.

K1M Div 1: Nick will will take bibs to the Shepperton Div 1 but only if you send him the paperwork beforehand.

K1M Div 3: Karen will be at Stone on 3rd March, Llandysul Div 1, Oughtibridge Div 3/4 and Tully Div 1, and on the SCA campsite until the Friday after the Div 1.

Please send it to the right person. The Bib Officers are listed on the Bib Application Form. Make sure you include:

A completed Bib Application Form

Your BC, SCA, CW or CANI card or a photocopy

A bib voucher or £9 deposit (cheques payable to British Canoeing Slalom Committee)

A large, strong SAE with at least £1.20 in postage and please use a C4 envelope.

Make sure there's enough postage on your application. If you use a small envelope and have to fold the return envelope several times it will be too thick for an ordinary letter (over 5mm). If you send a bubble or padded envelope for your bib it WILL be too thick, etc, etc. If it is, put a "large letter" stamp on it! If the Bib Officer has to pay a Post Office surcharge you won't get your bib until you pay the money back.

The bib officers will do their best to fold your bib within the "large letter" rules, but give them a chance!

Do put on at least £1.20 in postage.

Don't use a padded envelope. The extra thickness will make the envelope too thick for even the "large letter" rate.

Don't use anything smaller than C4 (the size that takes an A4 page unfolded). The extra fold in the bib will make the envelope too thick for the "large letter" rate.

Don't use one of those super-size envelopes. They are too big for a "large letter".

A Change in the Rules

You get a 50 if you pass through a gate in the wrong direction. But from the start of the 2017 season it is not a penalty if there is a momentary movement in the wrong direction - a wash back, a bounce off a rock or the wind moving the gate back and forward - provided that you are going in the right direction at the start and finish of negotiation.

Know the Rules

A guide to the rules in practice for paddlers and judges.

Get Reinstated

Used to paddle slalom? Reckon you could still kick .....? Why not get reinstated and race again? Or you'd like to have a shot at another class, or you're just a good paddler who's never got into slalom, here's a form to make applying for reinstatement/ranking easy.
