AWC June 4th Meeting
Annual Throw Rope Competition

Join us for our annual Throw Rope Competition. The Throw Rope Competition will start at 7:30, so do your best to be at the Garden Hills Community by 7pm, for a social hour, announcements, and to sign up for the competition. For experienced paddlers it's a chance to show off their skills and for newer paddlers it's a great chance to learn and practice this essential safety skill. If you have a rope, please bring it. We'll have prizes for the overall winner and runner-up, plus prizes for the top female and top rookie.

It looks like there is no swim meet next door this year, so parking should be easier and we’ll be able to use the big field next door!

Format:

· 2-3 rounds, each including a bagged throw followed quickly by a coiled throw at a moving boat. 3 points for throw over the middle of the boat, 1 point for the ends, and 0 for a miss. If tied, we’ll have a round or two of tie breakers.

Prizes:

Gift cards for 1st place, 2nd place,  top female, and top rookie

A few notes:

· Wear a shirt you don’t mind getting a little dirty.

· Even if you don’t think you have a shot at winning…or you’ve never thrown a rope before…please try it out (plenty of folks can help you)…learning and practice is the number one reason for the event. On more than one occasion a first timer had placed in the top 5.

· This is a friendly competition…so don’t get too upset if a judge blows a call…the main idea is for us to practice an important safety skill and have fun!

· Be ready when it’s your turn to throw! Bring your throw rope to the meeting. If you don’t have one, there will be plenty you can borrow…but why don’t you have one?! :)

· We’ll have solo cups for your beverages, please use them in the field area. A camp chair might be a good idea if you want to sit between rounds.

 

Time: 7pm- Social (Half)Hour, 7:30pm Meeting
