Re: Abandoning the season?....

To be fair I don't think that the committee ever said the season would be abandoned: Following careful consideration of the impact of Covid-19 on the 2020 racing season, the slalom committee has made the decision that no further ranking races will be held in 2020. As a committee, we are still workin...

Re: Abandoning the season?....

What about those that did two events and won both? Where in the rules is this allowed? There are several ways of extrapolating results from those that we have, the trouble is different methods will result in different paddlers benefitting or not, as the case may be. Also whatever we do has to work a...

Re: Abandoning the season?....

Sorry Dee I also disagree with this. No need to be sorry, I don’t entirely agree with myself :D :lol: . I’m just trying to make a point that that what might look like a no brainer could have some unexpected results and decisions or ACM motions need to take these into account I think most people in ...

Re: Abandoning the season?....

Just to remove any doubt here - I am posting as an individual and not, in any way as a member of the committee ... That bit out of the way, if you did bring an ACM motion, I think my main concern would be the unintended consequences. Eg: We get too many promotions too early in the season, substantia...

Hopefully the Slalom Committee will be able to develop some strategies to mitigate these potential impacts.
You do know the slalom committee consists of normal (well normalish) human beings - not a superman cape in existence that I'm aware of. :D :lol: :lol:

Re: Abandoning the season?....

I believe some plans will be announced shortly, but it is fair to say that this season has been like none other. Hopefully 2021 will be better!

I understand that the online entry system will automatically send this information to people who have entered, and credit cards will not be charged etc.
This is correct - emails have been sent

Re: Isn't it strange?

Hi Dee Obviously no one knows when canoeing can resume and when races can resume. It may be that there are no races run at all in 2020 in which case we just wait until 2021 to restart. (I haven't considered what will happen if this runs into 2021 as can't think that far ahead yet). Whenever we resu...

Re: Isn't it strange?

I wonder what will happen about points and demotions if we do get half a season this year? Does everybody get short season exemption because, well, it is? Or change the points thresholds? And will everybody swim a lot, especially at the higher divisions? Would Tees Barrage be just a succession of s...

Re: Isn't it strange?

Or, slightly less facetiously how we get the season moving when this is all over and what we do about getting div 4s in, bearing in mind clubs are not running beginners sessions right now.

Isn't it strange?

Nowadays I only attend a few slaloms during the year, but in spite of that I usually get quite a few slalom emails through the season and feel quite close to a lot of the races because of my involvement with the tech end. I'm really missing the season :( This was brought home to me by an email I had...
