Updates / New Website Content
As you may be aware, the Canoeing Results (also Canoeing Photos) website is currently funded by an individual member of the group. However, it has been suggested that the longevity of the site and the data held on the website would be ensured by setting up a donation facility, should anyone feel they wish to help with the costs incurred. The overheads involved in the maintenance of this site include: the purchase of a number of licences and the annual expenses required to run the two websites; the postage costs incurred regarding the collecting of data from individual contributors and the purchase of scanners and other software required for processing the data received.
NB. Please note, these are entirely non-profit making websites.
We have recently been experimenting with the creation of a database of results that will enable individual paddlers to access an overview of how they performed during their canoeing career. We have started the process with the C1 class from 1968 – 1979. This can be found at the foot of the Slalom Calendar and Results page or accessed via Summary of C1 Paddlers’ Results. We are now in a position to be able to see which events paddlers attended, and their individual race results. Please see Rowan Osborne, Graham Goldsmith, Geoff Dinsdale or John Albert as examples. Other profiles are currently being generated and should you appear on the summary page please contact us to confirm that you would like to have your details published in this section by using the Contact Us – Canoeing Results Archive.
We are also investigating the possibility of creating a database for the Men’s K1 class at Div1 and Premier level. To this end, we would welcome offers of help in the typing up of a set or sets of results into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet for which full instructions and support will be provided. If you would be willing to assist please get in touch via Contact Us – Canoeing Results Archive Any help in this matter would be gratefully appreciated!
To guide our readers to the digitised collection of White Water Magazines we have created a link to the Chalfont Park Canoe Club archive, where they are stored. This is the only complete set of White Water Magazines set known to exist.
We are currently processing Sarah / Melvin Swallow’s WWR results plus Andrew Morton’s vast collection of WWR, Marathon and Sprint results.
