Our annual slalom event at Slenningford Watermill is fast approaching so we will try to provide as much information as possible about the event.
Firstly we are looking to get as many entries from club members as possible, this can include children as well as adults.
Mark Wilbond with the help of Richard Cooke and Andy Walker are looking to run a few practice sessions over the next few weeks to brush up on skills and provide an introduction into slalom. We have all required slalom canoes that can be borrowed for the weekend.
At the event there are medals etc. to be won for various categories.
Onto more important matters now – in the past we have had club members turning up at the club campsite area from Thursday onwards to take advantage of a long weekend, unfortunately the campsite Management have now asked us to only allow camping from Friday evening onwards apart from club members who are involved in the setting up of the event. Anyone who arrives at the club campsite area before Friday evening and has not been confirmed as part of the set-up will be turned away.
A final note on the event – YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOUR HELP
During the weekend we need help from club members to ensure the event runs smoothly in the following areas:
Front gate, in the control tent, starting team, on and off water rescue, judging, runners etc. anyone willing to help please let a committee member know what day/time you can help and what you can help with so we can put a schedule together.
THANKS – The Committee
