The CCE is running 3 intro slalom sessions in preparation for the Tamihi 5-O Slalom Race at the Tamihi Rapids. The program will be intended for those looking to attend all the sessions, yet you can also pick and choose if you can only make one or two.
The Sessions will be run by Jon Allen at Tamihi Rapids in Chilliwack on the following dates:
Saturday Sept 6 10:00am
Sunday Sept 7 10:00am
Saturday Sept 13 10:00am
Sunday Sept 14 Race Day!
The Cost will be $15 per session. The club has equipment that can be borrowed or you can paddle with your own boat. It will be creek boat friendly for those looking to use that style of boat
The race is organized separate and will have its own costs
Participants should be competent boaters looking to try slalom and learn some of the techniques and strategies for making gates. A strong roll and river running skills are important to benefit from the lessons in the gates.
Paddlers, please come dressed for success. Proper safety equipment, thermal gear and footwear should be worn. The club can provide slalom boats and spraydecks. The boats accommodate a paddler up to 170lbs comfortably (We have other boats that will work for bigger paddlers)
