Ballard Elks Paddling Club Race Tonight 7pm –

Ballard Elks Race Series #4
Safety meeting: 6.30pm
Start: 7pm

Reminder: last week we had a handful of racers who didn’t pre-register, and also wanted to pay with cash.
We want to include and accommodate everyone, but COVID makes this difficult. We cap our races at 24 entrants, and have introduced online payments to simplify registration and reduce person-to-person contact. With the largest daily increase of cases in WA last Thursday since COVID began, we encourage all to pre-register and won’t be able to accommodate walk-ups until conditions improve.
If you didn’t pay last week, that’s fine. If you feel like making a donation to the Paddle Club, here’s a Paypal link to do so.

Get it awn! Last week’s revival of the BEPC summer race series was hectic – that wind and current and chop!

This week we’ll extend the distance to 6K – about 3.7 miles – with a Palmer custom course that should give everyone a little bit of everything. Hoping for some fun breeze to ride back into the channel.

Treasurer Harry O has solved a known friction and moved out payment systems online. Paddle Club Members MUST use discount code BEPC to get membership price, otherwise the cost will be $10.

Our pre-race routine will follow last time’s successful and safe format: masks on until on the water, will launch in heats set day of the race, drafting is OK, pass at safe distance, and in all circumstances off water maintain physical distancing.

It takes a village, or in this case a flotilla!
