KING RIVER SLALOM 18th AUGUST 2019

KING RIVER SLALOM 18th AUGUST 2019

This event will be run more as a training event rather than a race.  The intention is to maximise the opportunity for paddling on white-water with gates.  On Saturday 17th August 2019 the course will be set up at the slalom rapid commencing at 2:00 followed by free practice on the course.  On Sunday from 9:00 to 12:00 there will be unlimited timed runs on the course.  Help in setting up and dismantling the course will be greatly appreciated.

There is no entry fee for this event. There is no booking or registration required, however, if you are planning on being there it would be helpful if you could email chris.runting@gmail.com and advise if you will be there for the Saturday and/or Sunday so we have some idea of numbers.

On the same week-end Ivanhoe Grammar School are running their regular camp and river trip on the Saturday. Paddlers are welcome to join their river trip, the briefing will be at 10am at the Lake Hovell Spillway or if raining at the King River Camp.

Ivanhoe Grammar School book out the “King River Camp” for their accommodation.  Non IGS people are welcome to stay at the camp for weekend with all accommodation (bunks) and food provided, or come for dinner only on the Saturday evening.  If interested please contact David Gibbs at IGS (david.gibbs@ivanhoe.com.au) for costs and further details.

The river levels are currently low, however forecast rain will hopefully fix this.  Look out for any additional information and updates that may be posted here or on the Canoe Slalom Victoria Facebook page late next week.
