Competition “event tickets”

There has been some discussion recently about competition ‘day tickets’.

The sole purpose of such a ‘ticket’ is to provide temporary insurance cover to take part in an event, normally issued by a race organiser in respect of their own competition.

It is only payable by those unable to prove British Canoeing membership, and a marathon racer can use this facility only once in a season. The cost of the day ticket is remitted to British Canoeing directly. It is not something that is administered or collected by the MRC.

An Event ticket, which is officially the name, covers insurance only and is not a “day membership” or boat license for the use of waterways, as provided for most waters, with full British Canoeing membership.
