The Brevis Choate Memorial Race is held in memory of Brevis, a past President of Canoeing WA.  The slalom community would like to honour his memory with a race that reflects his belief in family and community participation.  Brevis died in 2005 and this is the 12th year of Brevis passing.  Brevis is the husband of Shirley Go and father of Isabella, Alexandria and Jack, stepfather of Kim who are well known in the WA Slalom Community.

All paddlers are welcome to attend the event, dig out that old slalom boat or bring your plastic playboat along.  Paddlers will also be able to accumulate points for family participation in the K1 and C1 Events

A team race will be held at the end of the event.  Teams consist of 3 boats but must include either a C1 , C2 or plastic boat.  Enter either as a family or a group of friends.
