The Lulu Jull Memorial Trophy – presented by Palm Equipment.
This beautiful trophy, designed by local Okere Falls legend Roi Toia, will be presented yearly to a deserving female paddler.
To accommodate the scope of Lulu’s awesomeness! we will set parameters yearly to dictate how the Trophy will be won. The idea is that by changing the guidelines for winning the Trophy we can share this amazing award through multiple aspects of the kayaking community and share the LOVE.
On top of such an amazing award, the Jull family has graciously set in place a Grant in Lulu’s name. We are still working out how this Grant money will be incorporated into the award but we will let you know shortly.
So Ladies… do we have your attention!
This years award will go to the 2016 Extreme Race Series winner.
The series is composed of 4 events (2 on the N.Island and 2 on the S.Island). Your best THREE (3) results count towards your overall ranking. If you compete in all 5 events you may drop your worst results. The races counting towards the Extreme Race Series are:
1. Kaituna Time-trial
2. Wairoa Time Trial
3. Wairoa Head to Head
4. Bullerfest Boater X
5. Citroen Extreme Race
The Trophy will be presented by the Jull Family to the winner at an award ceremony held at the Okere Falls Store (date to be announced). Due to the pure beauty of this trophy and its significance amongst the paddling community, we have decided that the winner will get to spend some time enjoying its presence but the trophy will then be returned, where it will live on display at the Okere Falls Store for all to enjoy.
Good Luck ladies !!!
I hope you have an amazing time chasing this prestigious award and following in Lulu’s dominating foot steps.
