Bala Mill Div 2/3

We have closed entries unless they have already been arranged by email or phone call.

Provisional start lists have now been published. Once I know what the release times are I will publish a final start list.

Mark Abbott

A Heads-Up for Organisers

Races have been attracting big entries this year, and in some cases organisers have had to close their entry lists early.

If this look like happening with your event, please remember that paddlers in the "host" division/s (Div 1s at a Div 1, Div 1s and 2s at a Div 1/2 and so on) have priority over paddle-uppers until the two-week deadline. You may have to reject paddle-up entries even if they were received early.

Do not send off entries with no payment, incorrect payment, or an unsigned or post-dated cheque.

With a lot of races fully subscribed, organisers can and will reject your entry if you do not send the proper payment.

Funded Travelling Fellowships Seek Canoeists
Mike Jones Award

In 2015 the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust will award 150 Travelling Fellowships to British citizens who want to travel overseas to gain knowledge and experience to benefit others in their UK communities and society as a whole. We are particularly interested in applications from canoeists planning to lead adventurous expeditions.

Applications have now opened. If you have an idea for an expedition for 2015, look at the details on http://www.wcmt.org.uk. The deadline for applications is 5pm on 23rd September 2014. MORE>

Please look out for this boat!

It was stolen from a car roof at the Orton Mere slalom. It's a Nelo DM350 XS, black with a white zig zag and a red stripe. Please keep your eye out for it and let me know if you see it.

Slalom Calendar 2015

The deadline for applications for Div 2/3/4 events has now passed.  The draft calendar (updated 23/6) includes the entries received to date. The existence of an event on the draft calendar does not mean that it has been accepted as an event.

We are still awaiting confirmation from HPP of the available weekends for the P/1 events there. Once we have those dates an updated calendar will be circulated. Ideally the HPP events will be in May/June/September.

Applying for your 2014 Bib

Make sure you send your bib application to the right person. Don't forget your national association card or a photocopy, £9 deposit (cheques payable to BCU Slalom Committee) or a valid £8 bib voucher, and a large, strong SAE with postage for 150g.

Please make sure you put enough postage on your bib application – it may be a “large letter” under Royal Mail rules. If it is, and large letter postage hasn’t been paid, it is likely to be delayed and you will have to repay the penalty fees before you get your bib.
