2018 Provincials Results

The Alberta Whitewater Association held our 41st annual Provincial Whitewater Championships on September 8th and 9th. With good weather and guaranteed water from 10:00 to 5:00 each day we had a great time on the Kananaskis. The format included a Sprint Downriver race through the race course, a Freestyle comp on the Chubbies wave below the race course, a Novice Slalom race and a Classic Downriver race from Widowmaker to the Race Course on Saturday. On Sunday we held the Advanced Slalom race on the Upper Race Course and a Novice Freestyle wave ride on Chubbies again.  Besides the honor of competing in each of the events, competitors earned points for every event they entered for prizes worth over $1,500. Everyone that participated went home with something. Thank you to High Level Canoes & Kayaks from Lethbridge for your generous support and to Michael Holroyd for the Predator Helmet.

For next year lets plan on getting more people to come out and join us for the weekend. It is too nice of a gathering not to have more people to share it with.
