Sluice Fest 2014

Post by Colm » Mon Oct 20, 2014 4:37 pm

We hope you all enjoyed last weekends paddling at Crana Fest so now it is time to get your team together and registered for Sluice Fest!!

A couple of points to remember:

Registration is ONLINE ONLY and for teams of 6 (this is a team event).
Registration closes this FRIDAY 24th OCTOBER at MIDNIGHT (that's less than 5 days away).
Competitors will need to be registered, paid up members of Canoeing Ireland (this is so that you are insured during the event). If you are not a member or if your membership is out of date, you will be required to update your membership at bib collection.

BIB COLLECTION is from 10am to 7pm Thursday and Friday (30/31st October) from I-CANOE in Parkwest. Only 1 member per team is required to collect bibs for their team. If you cannot collect from the shop, please let us know in advance so we can try and make alternate arrangements. Lost/stolen bibs will be charged to the competitor at 25 euro per bib.

Equipment: You will need to be adequately dressed for the weather on the weekend with approved buoyancy aid, helmet (etc...) and be prepared to change into dry clothes between events to keep warm. Raft and paddles will be provided for raft race. For all other events you will need your own kayak, paddle, deck (etc...). We will have a limited number of plastic slalom kayaks, wildwater racers and freestyle for those events but you need make sure you have your own kit in case those are not available.
