MR500 Race Lookahead

On March 4, 2011 by Jean-Benoît_Delpy_Bourcart

Hello Paddlers

MR500 RACE TRAINING   |   RACE FEE   |   DATES (NOT) FOR YOUR DIARY

1) MR500 RACE TRAINING

If you have registered for the MR500 race (to be held on the 19th and 20th March) we only have two weeks left for training.

The Captains have made it clear that all those registered for the race are expected to attend all of the remaining training sessions before the race so that the team can have the very best chance of being at peak performance and bagging medals.

If you have registered for the race it is also essential that – unless you die or are totally incapacitated in the meantime – you participate.  Even one paddler being a “no show” on the day could jeopardise the careful planning for race entries and result in a boat being pulled from competition due to the finely judged numbers and other logistical considerations.

I will send you a further bulletin in the coming week with full details of the MR500 race.

2) RACE FEE

Your $50 race fee for the MR500 covers race entries, personal registration and photo ID race tag, water and 100 Plus drinks on both days, lunch and beer on the Saturday and the team dinner/celebrations at Red Dot (Dempsey) on the Sunday evening.  A shady spot in the team tent at a prime location also awaits you!  Please pay your $50 at training this weekend.

3) DATES (NOT) FOR YOUR DIARY

Please note that we will NOT have training on Wednesday 23rd, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th March.  So all the more reason to attend every training before the MR500 race weekend…

I look forward to seeing you at training at 3.30pm on Saturday afternoon at Kallang and, of course, for the beach BBQ and beer event immediately afterwards!

Best regards

Philip N. Morgan – Team Secretary
