Floodlighting on the Slalom Site - Instructions for Use
Floodlight keys can be used between 16.00hrs to 21.00hrs Monday to Saturday. No floodlights should be used on Sundays.
Turn the two grey switches on, if not already on, (top of switch faces out) mounted on your left hand side. TOP = Top half of the site, BOT = Bottom half of the site.
If the green light is illuminated on the top of the grey switches, this means that it is dark enough for the lights to come on straight away.
Now press the large green button on the grey box in front of you, you will hear a loud clunk as the lights switch on.
If the step light is illuminated, the system is ready to be switched on, but the floodlights may be automatically kept off until it is dark enough on the slalom site.
If the green light is NOT illuminated on the top of the two grey switches this means the site is still bright enough. The lights will stay off and will automatically switch on once it's dark as long as you have pushed the large green button.
After you get off, push the large red switch this will switch the lights off.
Internal meter box light - push the switch at the end of the fitting.
If you have switched the lights on, make sure you turn them off, unless there is another key holder on the water.
Lights left on cost you money. Don't leave it to someone else.
No key, no lights!
Non-Members - Promote the use of the site and floodlighting. If they become a regular paddler advise them of the membership scheme and put them in touch with a committee member or give them Chris Martin's telephone number (01629) 55046 or give them a membership form.
If you find that non members are illegally using the site and are persistently getting in your way. Diplomatically advise them of their behaviour and ask them to comply or get off. If you get nowhere the last resort is to get out yourself and switch the lights off. Don't be abusive!
