Please enter by post for this race, preferably with cards and a cheque to make
the organiser’s task as simple as possible. Email entries are not acceptable
because unnecessary time is then spent matching cheques with entries.

“best in the world on the world’s best course”
In a GB Selection Trials described by GB Canoeing’s
Slalom Head Coach Paul Ratcliffe as “the best in the world on the
world’s best course” the pressure shifted up a notch in today’s
final day of racing, with the competition for some third place slots
in the senior team particularly tight.

Interclubs Teeshirt Design

designing the Inter clubs T-shirt this year! If you feel you have
good ideas please email your design to
by the 22nd June!

Interclubs Finals 2014
A short explanation of your concept.
MORE AND RULES>
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!
This can also be a path to promotion.
A “paddle up” achievement
(beating 40% of the field at a next-div-up race) counts as
equivalent to a win in your own division.
Short Notice Div 4 Slaloms
Division 4 is the entry level to the
slalom ranking list. Division 4 slaloms can be organised at short
notice in order to increase the opportunities for people to enter
the ranking system. Page 50 of the yearbook contains more
information on applying to run these events.
Such slaloms are "short notice", not
short course: as with any slalom they can be run over up to 25
gates, but to make it easier to run them they can be as short
as 12 gates, at least 4 of them upstream gates.
Applying for your 2014 Bib
Make sure you send your bib application to the right person. Tracy,
for example, does K1M Prems and ONLY K1M Prems.
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
