So you think you know how to paddle? If you do, come out and show us how its done. In the past few years CCGH has acquired a raft of new paddlers, some who think they are pretty good and some who are trying strenuously to improve as rapidly as possible (and doing quite well I might add). If you want to learn something new and are not afraid of a challenge sign up for the Fiddlers Elbow Slalom on September 22-23, 2018. You don’t need a race boat. We have a special class for your plastic play boats. The club also has a C2, a tandem decked slalom racing canoe and a kayak race boat. Both are available for you to try. There will be practice and clinics on Saturday afternoon for those who are registered.
While the water is easy, the gates will challenge you. To keep it fair we have separate classes for men and women. I think all you paddle jocks and jockettes should come out and challenge each other to see what you can do. We will make it an event within the event. A club challenge. Fiddlers Elbow is for beginning racers. We need more participation from our own club members. I guarantee you will have fun and learn something new that improves your skill set. Last year’s attainment race was a success. We will do it again this year. Start at the bottom and race upstream. Do you want that with gates or without?
We will be stringing wires for the gates on Tuesday, SEP 18 and Thursday, SEP 20 starting at 5:00 PM. This is a labor intensive job so please come out and help. We will also need lots of help Saturday and Sunday.
