 After the AGM we held the inaugural AGM race, a 6.6km nomination race to Kent Street Weir and return.  Every paddler nominated a time that they thought they would complete the race in.  The winner would be the paddler closest to his predicted time, no watches allowed.  There was spirited interest in winning the race as a movie voucher was at risk.  Unbeknownst to anyone Damian Cooper had a cunning plan, Damien a regular paddler in these waters was first to put his time down, everyone else then promptly calculated their own time with reference to Damien, knowing that Damien had paddled this area lots recently and could be relied upon getting pretty close to his prediction.  After a little while all the paddlers had guessed their times and everyone was on their boats and getting ready for the mass start.  Thats when Damien played his trump card – he yells out to the starter "i’ve changed my mind could you change my time by three minutes please", well what a commotion that caused, people were pleading to change their own times and many paddlers did including the Club president Roy Martin who reset his time by a minute only to eventually finish 1 minute and 1 second off his nominated time – unlucky Roy.
In the end it was Alan Quartermaine who won the day being only 11 seconds off his nominated time, Andree Martin was an unlucky second being only a second further behind.
Photos below show Alan Quartermaine receiving the winners movie voucher from club member Liam Thompson.

 2010 Canning Nomination- Inaugural Paddle Race Sunday19th September

We had around 50 people at the river and over 30 paddlers in the race, an enjoyable race was had by all.

In the major 10km race for the cash it was Rod Meyer who picked up the $100 getting to within 1 second of his nominated time, he can thank his mate for knocking him in so that he had to go for a swim otherwise he would have finished a couple of minutes too quickly.  Unlucky second 9 seconds of his nominated time and taking away $75 was Simon Duggan and third went to Brooke McGowan, 27 seconds off his nominated time, he took away $40 worth of vouchers.

In the Short race (5km) it was young Max Gipson whose race time was within 10 seconds of his nominated time that took first prize, $50.  Second place and $35 went to Tim Mulcahy and third was Amanda Nitschke, $20.  Amanda please contact us we have your $20 third prize for you to collect (call Judith on 0407574530).

Thanks once again to those Canning River Canoe Club members who helped out on the day and a special thankyou to Graham Styles from Super IGA Thornlie who generously donated to the race, please support Graham in Thornlie Super IGA.
