Just a couple of days to go to the 2018 Irish Open…
Schedule & Rules
– Timetable and Rules available here … http://canoepolo.ie/irish-open
– Updates will be posted to that page.
– Please study the entire timetable (not just your division), as you may be on Table Duty or Refereeing a lower division than the one you have entered.
– There is a separate tab for each Division.
Captains and Referees – IMPORTANT !
– Captains & Referees are to assemble at 8.00am on Saturday Morning at the Boathouse in the Harbour for a meeting with the Head Referee(Sean Downes) and Organisers.
– A number of steps are being taken to improve Refereeing and Player Discipline. Your Captain and Referees MUST attend this meeting.
– Under competition rules, if your Captain and Referees do not attend, your team will start your first game 1-0 down. If you have an insurmountable reason why you cannot attend (e.g. flight arrival time), please email email@example.com looking for a written waiver.
CI Numbers – ALSO IMPORTANT !!
Per my previous email a couple of teams have still not replied with their player CI numbers. Canoeing Ireland Insurance requires that we check these numbers so unfortunately unless you provide these before the competition, your team will not be playing 🙁
