Victorian Slalom Team 2008




As a result of the final Selection Races for the 2008 Slalom Team being completed last weekend, the Victorian Slalom Team for 2008 has now been selected and is detailed below.


The VSTC has appointed Graham Hobbs ( as Victorian Team Manager for 2008, including the National Slalom Championships being held in Penrith later this month. Graham is available to assist any Victorians at the Nationals not just Vic. Team members.


There will be a presentation / get together to present rashies and acknowledge the members of the Vic. Slalom Team for 2008 which will be held at the Nationals for those that are attending. Watch for details up at the Nationals or contact Graham or Ruth Hardman for details.


As well as the presentation at the Nationals, there will be another presentation and acknowledgement of Team members which will be held at the first Yarra Series Slalom Race scheduled for April 20, 2008 at Warrandyte.


I would strongly encourage everyone to attend both of the above to show your support for the paddlers that have performed so well to gain their selection.
