End of Year Demotions

The Committee has drawn the demotion cutoff lines at

2000 points in Prem

1000 points in Div 1

200 points in Div 2

So if you're above the line you're safe for this year, BUT:


It was touch and go whether the lines would be drawn at this level or higher. Next year it's very likely, if the picture is similar, that the Committee will set the bar higher. Don't think you're "safe" next year unless you have more than 2500 points in Prem or 1250 in Div 1.

Returning Bibs

Bibs should have been returned by 30th November, so if you haven't sent yours back it's late. The Bib Officer will probably accept it as long as you get it in the post this week.

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.
