Re: SCA drama

There's also the issue of this being brought to the SCA to for discussion at the AGM, yet the Board went ahead and took them as Special Resolutions for the members to vote on. Maybe the outcome could have been very different if there had been a reasonable discussion with the board and members at an ...

Re: Paddling gear for snowsports

Using a dry cag would be horrible! No way to regulate temperature and you'll get nice and clammy. Dry trousers actually work OK, found this out after an aborted plan to go kayaking while near Glenshee. Neoprene bib and feet got a bit warm but not overly uncomfortable. I wouldn't want to use them as ...

Re: 2013 Big Dog Moriston River Race

Gutted I can't make it this year but it's great to see some of the ideas discussed after the last race get implemented.

Hope it runs just as well! Good luck to everyone.

Re: RIVER NORTH ESK (Old Scout Camp to Edzell)

There's a tree on roughly the 3rd bimbly rapid after Presidents Corner, the one where it constricts and you need to be next to the gorge wall river right. The tree itself has fallen above on the gorge but the branches are hanging over on to the river. At a decent medium level (Saturday) they weren't...

Re: Verdon Release

Been looking at doing this in the next few weeks.

I think it runs on a Tuesday but I couldn't tell you much more than that about releases. CanoeControl are the people to contact apparently.

Re: Feedback: Moriston River Race

I'd like to echo what everyone has said already, it was a great event and I really enjoyed it! Gutted I missed the Sunday night but apparently my University exam board don't recognise bank holidays. A few suggestions that may or may not be useful: Music: From my experience at slalom races it instant...

Re: Is White Water River Running A sport?

"includes physical activity"

Would this mean darts is not a sport?
If you can rest a pint on your belly when you play it's definitely not a sport.

FS: Va2or Kip Carbone Helmet

Hi I'm unfortunately selling my Va2or Kip Carbone Standard helmet. It's a S/M and is to fit 51-56cm heads. It's always been just that little bit small for me (my own fault should have bought the larger one, I would say 55cm would be the max size for this) so I've bit the bullet and bought myself a n...

Re: Dry trousers as ski salopettes

Awesome, probably just going to pick up a cheap pair somewhere then.

Was thinking of covering up the foot of the trousers with a football/kilt sock to stop the rubbing but it'll be more hassle than it's worth.

Dry trousers as ski salopettes

I'm possibly going to be going on a budget ski holiday sometime over the xmas hols and I'm wondering whether anyone has any experience of using dry trousers as salopettes.

Are they too warm?
Too baggy?
Will they wear around the boot?
etc...

Any help would be appreciated.
