A bus trip of 14 of us headed over to Wagon Lane at Bingley for their annual div 3 / 4 slalom competition.  Almost the full fleet of new slalom boats were pressed into action on the Saturday  as a constant stream of HXCC paddler made their way down the rippling current (yes the water level was really low) while the team of cheer leader on the bank yelled encouragement.

In Div 3, Adrian Bairstowe lead the charge with a 4th on Saturday and a 3rd on Sunday (that’s promotion form). Roger put in good results both days, including scooping up a ‘supervets’ prize on Sunday which is now chilling in the fridge and awaiting his attention.

In Div 4 Anita and Sarah both survived all their C1 runs - much to the disappointment of the waiting cameras, and Roger and Keith had an impressive C2 debut missing promotion by 0.7 of a second!

On Saturday in was the ladies taking the Div 4 honours with Lois and Christine in 2nd & 3rd, both winning promotion in their first ever slalom race.  Come Sunday Pete Face matched them by winning Div 4 and getting his promotion too. And there was even time for a bit of wibbly wobbly wavehopper paddling at lunchtime”

So lots of success and some clean runs for the chart too! Bring on the next race
