For those who Shrrrreeeed it BRO!!
« on: March 11, 2018, 00:10:30 »
Dirtbag kayakers! <3

The most illustrious of Pre-Ball Kayaking events in all of Laragh! For those who don't know, this will take place the day after the Anna-Mayzing Ball on the 24th of March. It will cost €5 per person to cover the prizes, payable on the day.

The Team race will involve 3 people per team, 1 in their 1st or 2nd year of the club, 1 in their 3rd or 4th, and 1 in the club longer than they'd rather say. One of each gender should be on the team also. The team will make their way down the course as a group, and the last person to cross the line will be the time for the team, so it is in the teams best interest to stay together. At least 2 people have to run Jacksons. The finish line will be the hole of Jacksons. Time deductions may be made as follows:

  • -10 seconds for plugging the hole of Jacksons (only given to one paddler per group)
  • -15 seconds for all 3 paddlers running Jacksons
  • -20 seconds for each paddler that catches the Energiser eddy
  • -30 seconds for all 3 paddlers in Fancy Dress of some sort! (note: this should not interfere with your ability to swim, etc.)

BoaterX: The BoaterX (boater-cross) will be a race between 4 or 5 people down the course, the top 2 progressing to the next round. It, and the course, looks like this.
This will be split into Men and Womens categories, and depending on numbers, but further split into Fresher, Non-L3, and L3 or more categories.

Of the 6 past Pre-ball events, I think only had 3 races have taken place, so obviously the weather is going to have to play ball with us, but if the much desired and mythicised rain does not arrive, there will be a back-up plan depending on who has signed up, etc, but may involve coaching and/or cliff jumping which I cannot guarantee will not result in a nail biting injury. Video reference to cliff jumping here and here


So the current plan (which is so subject to change it hardly seems worth writing down) is this:
  • 0900: Meet at 9am in Lyhnams car park. Everyone gets changed.
  • 0915: If by some miracle the stars align and we have 3 or 4 plus competitors capable of racing the Glenmacnass, we will run a time trial race of the car park section. If competitors aren't on the water on time, this won't go ahead. Hopefully while this is running everyone not involved will be moving to where the river crossing is.
  • 0945: Safety briefing for all to attend
  • 1015: Opportunity for people to run Jacksons if they wish.
  • 1045: Start of Team Heats
  • 1230: BoaterX heats will begin.
Prize giving will take place immediately afterwards in the car park. Consisting ONLY of the alcoholic variety!

Prizes will be given for:
  • 1st & 2nd Team Run
  • 1st/2nd Mens BoaterX
  • 1st/2nd Womens BoaterX
  • Best Competitor (For the individual who was both most helpful on the day and also gave the paddling their all)
  • Best Line (may or may not be sarcstic, depending on how it goes)
  • Best Swim

....possibly a few more sport prizes on the day  ;) ;)

I will be looking for the selected few to help out with time keeping on the day, etc., so if you aren't paddling, come along and lend your assistance! you may be rewarded in honor and recognition for the rest of your days!!  :o

Sign your Teams up below!

Here are two more videos to look at: Link and link

Peace!! *drops mic*

Story lads,

Not having much history with this event I have been informed of previous years layouts.
Which I believe to be More inclusive and therefore More awesome.

Teams will consist of
Fresher (1st year  :discopaddler:)
College Type (2nd-4th years  :o)
OFB's (oldies  afro.gif)

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause  :P
