Reference Bulletin No.3 http://www.florencebcs2018.
All teams must complete the registration of participants within the date above and pay the full registration fee due. You must also have created the personal data for all participants with the uploading of participants photos and the waivers of legal responsibility and the permission to use images, including qualifications. If you have a full crew you have to insert the nominal entries.

5) Insert QUALIFICATIONS:
BCS Paddler or SUPPORTER paddler – right, left, drummer or steer)

6) ONLY FOR FULL CREWS insert NOMINAL ENTRIES
The health certificates for all paddlers (Paddler and Paddling Supporter) must be completed and submitted by the same date. ONLY after you have uploaded the health certificate, will you be able to qualify participants as Paddlers and Paddling Supporter. The health certificate must be correctly filled in and signed by a licensed medical doctor/physician. Every participant will be individually responsible for his/her health conditions.
After November the 30th, any unpaid balance of registration fees will forfeit the down payment made and participation in the Festival.
All data and documents (waivers and health certificates) must be submitted by the 30 November 2017.
If not uploaded by this date, the registration will be cancelled and the down payment will be forfeited.
***** NOVEMBER 30TH IS THE DEADLINE TO REGISTER PADDLING PARTICIPANTS. At the discretion of the Organizing Committee it will be possible to complete teams or register new ones (IF SPACES REMAIN).
STEERS AND DRUMMER
Reference Bulletin No.1 , No.2 and No.4 http://www.florencebcs2018.
All teams must qualify each participant as a paddler, steer, drummer, or supporter (paddling or non -paddling), etc.. as noted above you will only be able to qualify participants, particularly paddling participants ONLY AFTER UPLOADING THE HEALTH CERTIFICATES.
Every complete crew must be made up of 22 paddlers, that is 20 BCS paddlers, 1 BCS steer and 1 BCS drummer. Teams that have been established for less than 2 years prior to the date of the Festival (established after July 2016) will be given an exemption if they do have their own steer, and we will do our utmost to provide a BCS steer for these teams. As noted in our previous bulletins, should a team consist of less than 22 paddlers (including steer-person and drummer), when the registrations must be completed (November 30th), then they willlose the downpayment of people missing and will lose the space reserved as a full crew, therefore the remaining paddlers will fall into the category of a composite crew. So it is critical that you have your full quota of 22 paddlers (unless you have already advised that you are not a full crew) noted and registered.
If teams under Early Bird status do not complete all participants’ data and upload the waivers and health certificates for all paddling participants, then they will lose the discounted price of 50 euro per person and the team will be included in the category of Individual teams without full crews, therefore the standard registration (300 euro per person) will have to be paid.
Composite crews will be formed EXCLUSIVELY by the Festival Organizing Committee.
SUPPORTERS and ACCESS TO THE RACE VILLAGE
Reference Bulletin No.1 , No.2, No.3 and No.4 http://www.florencebcs2018.
SUPPORTERS (paddlers and non-paddlers) registration is exactly the same as the registration for the BCS paddlers. Only registered supporters and registered team members may access the race site. Therefore in order to have access to the race village all accompanying people/supporters (paddlers and non-paddlers) have to pay the same registration fee (300 euros per person) as the BCS paddlers. The supporter fee is a traditional aspect of the IBCPC Festivals; it has been the same in all previous Festivals, supporters have paid the same fee as the paddlers.
Supporters have the same services as the BCS paddlers, they will be included in off-water activities and meals with the teams. Please be aware that there will be NO organized or guaranteed zone from which to observe the races or visit the athletes village if you are not a fully credentialed participant.
If you are a Non-credentialed (registered) accompanying person you will not be considered a supporter by the Festival organization and none of the services provided to credentialed participants will be available to you and the access to the athletes village will be denied.
