The Nationals Slalom races will be held in Chilliwack this year from Aug 4th to Aug 7th. They are looking for safety boaters for the event. There will be a downriver race as well as the Slalom events that are held at Tamihi. You should be extremely comfortable in Tamihi in order to safety boat. If you are interested please let me know and I can give you all the details.  info@purplrhayes.bc.ca

If you are around during this time and don’t want to safety boat I highly recommend that you go and check out the races. These paddlers focus heavily on technique and are very efficient in the water. Many of you have heard me emphasize the importance of good technique and after watching some of these paddlers you will clearly see how much it benifits every paddler when you need to make that move. Doesn’t matter if you are going around a gate or a rock.
