A big congratulations from the WWR Exec and SCA WWR Committee go to Louise Revell who has made the shortlist to become a finalist at the Scottish Women in Sport Awards night at Glasgow in November.
Louise already an established slalomist, began Wild Water Racing less than a year ago and achieved GB selection in her first year, achieving some solid international results and establishing with several others a high class base for Scottish river racing.
Fraser Gormal SCA WWR Chair commented "her success in the Scottish Women in Sport Awards is a fantastic reflection to her hard work and dedication"
There are floods and heavy rain forecast for this weekend which will affect the Irwell race at the Burrs Activity Centre.
We will be reviewing the river levels and confirming tomorrow. At this stage we will be planning to go ahead but the level will not be suitable for novices or inexperienced paddlers. Club Coaches or individual paddlers will need to make their own decisions on whether to compete.
The river level gauges are at https://www.riverlevels.uk/irwell-bury-bury-ground#.VkY2Xnknypo
Anyone who has any questions or needs more details please contact me on 07790 494110
