England Pan Celtic Team

England Pan Celtic Team 2015>

Well done to all those who have been selected to represent England in the Pan Celtic races during 2015.

Will paddlers/parents/guardians please acknowledge selection with a brief email to confirm which events they hope to be available for. Please provide an email address that you monitor on a regular basis. My email address is mark_shaw@tiscali.co.uk and my other contact details are in the yearbook.

Paddlers should enter the divisional race held on the same weekend as each PCC as they normally would. Prem paddlers should mark their card "England" and the committee will pay their entry fees for them.

Teams will be finalised from the start list before the race, based on the team order published, and any remaining team slots will be filled in ranking order.

If you wish to buy England Slalom Team branded kit from Peak UK, please say so in your email I will send you a link together with a discount code.

Applying for your 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.

Bib Application Form>

C1M: Carole will be at the Stone minis on 1st and 15th Feb, the Stone Div 3/4 on 8/9 March and the Lee Valley Prem on 14/15 March. She will bring your bib if you  in advance. Send the paperwork to her or bring it on the day.

C1W: Mark will be at Lee Valley, but you must send him the paperwork beforehand.

Prem K1M: if you send your bib application paperwork to Tracy she will bring your bib to the Lee Valley race.

Prem and Div 1 K1W: Sally will be at Lee Valley and the Shepperton and Tully Div 1 races. She will bring your bib if you send her your bib application form, proof of membership and bib voucher.
