The Mighty Hurley Horn - Sunday

Fancy winning some prizes and taking part in an awesome competition that is open to everyone who comes along to the Hurley Classic.

At the Classic we have awesome fun with ‘The Mighty Hurley Horn'.

Every 20 to 30 minutes from 10am to 4pm of the Hurley Classic we will be calling out either a competitor or someone who has registered at the event desk. The announcement will be “'NAME' has been selected for The Mighty Hurley Horn”. The Mighty Hurley Horn will then be blown. From that point a clock will start and the person has 5 minutes to get to the main marquee and sit in ‘The Chair of Hurleyness'.

If the 5 minutes timer has elapsed the person called will not get chance to sit in ‘The Chair of Hurleyness' and win prizes.

Behind the chair is an area screened off where the ‘Voice of destiny' will be. The Voice will pull the name of prizes from a randomizer, calling one every 10 seconds. The prize value may go up or down. The person in the chair shouts stop when they are happy with the prize.

At some random point, as the prizes are being called, The Mighty Hurley Horn will be blown again signalling the end of the game. If the person in The Chair of Hurleyness has not called stop to select the prize offered, they walk away with nothing.

At the end of the Hurley Classic prize giving any prizes left over will be given by selecting random names and random prizes. (so it is worth staying right to the end of the event.

TV Freestylers paddler of the year awards Saturday Evening at Banquet

TV Freestylers www.tvfreestylers.co.uk (TVFS) is the web based community hub of freestyle paddling here in the Thames Valley.

This year and from here to eternity TVFS will present annual awards. The coverted awards will be awarded for notable achievements throughout the previous year or over a longer period. In the past award titles have included:-

  • Best Junior Female
  • Best Junior Male
  • Best Senior Female
  • Best Senior Male
  • Best International Paddler
  • Other Specific award.
  • The final award award of the evening is inspired by Graeme Laycock who was a TV Freestyler who optimised the community spirit of freestyle. Graeme, who sadly passed away in 2012, was the guy who always helped at events, always helped people who were nervous or struggling and always enjoyed the community we all paddle in. This award is called the Graeme Laycock TVFS Community Paddler of the Year.

The accolade of winning these awards is immense and your name will be put in the TVFS Hall of Fame page for all to see forever more.

To nominate someone for these awards send an email over to gareth@tvfreestylers.co.uk Remember they don't have to have the same award title as above, indeed in 2016 expect to see some of the above titles missing and some new ones in their place.
