2014 Deb Martin Memorial Slalom Race – Come out and race, celebrate, and support your local kayak club!
This is a fun, low key race with multiple divisions for all competitors. We will have a half-course race (lower Slalom Rapid, below the boof) for our youngest racers. Most racers paddle a long play boat like a forplay, X or a LUV. The JHKC will also have a few plastic slalom boats for everyone to try out the day of the race!
Date: Saturday, 9/13/14 Time: Racing starts at 1:00, BBQ, course clean up and awards to follow
NEW FOR THIS YEAR – Introductory Slalom Clinic before the race!
Nervous about running gates? Don’t know what a gate even is? Looking for some beginner advice on line choice and strokes?
Jon Souter, Rendezvous River Sports head instructor and (super-duper, wicked fast, when will I ever beat him…) former international slalom racer, will teach an introductory slalom clinic from 10-12 before the race. If you are new to slalom racing, paddle class III, and are excited to learn from one of the best, be sure to sign up at Rendezvous River Sports before the race!
Swing by Rendezvous starting Monday, 9/8, to register for the race, get your bib, sign up for the clinic, and find out when to help hang gates throughout the week!
$20 for a race bib and BBQ, add another $10 is you sign up for the clinic. If you are coming from out of town, you can register the morning of the event.
Call or email with questions, and we will see you on the river!
