If insufficient entries are received for any one event, the operating committee may combine age categories and apply a handicapping system to the actual finish time of the older sculler or crews as per Rowing Canada Rules of Racing.

Meaningful Competition:

Cascadia Organizing Committee seeks to create a rewarding and high-level competitive experience.  In order to be awarded first, second or third - there must be at least four competitors in the race.  This ensures that each award represents a well-earned result where the competitors fought it out for the top three positions.

If there are not four entries in a race, where logical, the organizing committee will combine age groups in an attempt to reach four or more competitors. Handicaps will be assigned as necessary and one first, second and third prize will be awarded for that combined race using the handicap to determine the winners.

Where at all possible the span of age categories will not be more than three.
