Although looking out the window to views of snow drifts and gale force winds the last thing any of us are thinking of is paddling around poles in wet pointy boats, the new canoe slalom season is upon us!
Any body interested in taking part should speak to one of the GSCC coaches or myself (slalom rep).
For those members who have taken part previously and are in division 3 or above and wish to compete again this year you MUST apply for your own personal bib at http://www.canoeslalom.uk/info/bib_form.htm If you attend a race without your own bib the points you earn from each race may not be allocated to you ! (PLEASE NOTE THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO OUR OWN SLALOM EVENT ON THE ANCHOLME) if you have any queries please speak to one of the GSCC coaches or myself (slalom rep)..
To help with applying for your bib I have listed below the name, division, category and bib number for all of the current GSCC members who have been allocated a bib number by British Canoeing for the new season. .
I will put up a notice of upcoming events in the boat house so watch out and I will try and arrange some slalom gate training shortly on the Ancholme for those interested, if you would like to attend any of these please let me know.
Kind regards and good luck to all participants, Dan (GSCC slalom rep).
Dan thought it would be amusing to advertise slalom with this photo from 2008 of one of our coaches showing how NOT to do it! (can you guess who?).
I’d rather show a photo of paddlers who CAN do it, as shown below!
Neil and Caitlin Marley the right way up!
Some of our paddlers celebrating their medal successes last season. This could be YOU this season!
