Is to be held at 6.30pm (to be confirmed) on Saturday 4 October 2014 at
Llandysul Paddlers Canoe Centre, The Wilkes Head Square, Pont Tyweli,
Llandysul SA44 4AA.
It's time for me to collect in the National Trophies and the trophies for
the British Open.
British Open trophies are needed before the event, so that we can get them
organised to confirm insurance. National trophies should be returned on or
before the Open, so that we can present them at the National dinners.
I will be at HPP on Sep 27/Sep 28, Symonds Yat on 11/12 October, probably
Cardiff on the evening of 11th October and the British Open - off course
Please email me to let me know where / how you will be returning the
trophies. If none of the above work, let me know where you will be so that
I can try to arrange an intermediary.

A Heads-Up for Organisers
Races have been attracting big entries
this year, and in some cases organisers have had to close their entry
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.
