Kananaskis Rebuild

Date: 
Monday, May 1, 2017 - 7:00am to Friday, May 5, 2017 - 5:00pm

Event Item:

The AWA and the Alberta River Surfers are undertaking a 5 day project to improve the river features on the Kananaskis from May 1-5. The water will be shut off from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm each day and then turned on each evening. You are welcome to come out and test out our work after the equipment has been removed from the river each day. Please be careful during these days because the feature might not be fully completed and have some safety issues that we still need to fix.  

If you would like to help out we would appreciate your assistance 

April 29-30  Move slalom gates and move wires and strings out of the way 

                    Cut down danger trees near the slalom gate system and along river trails 

May 1-5  We will have heavy equipment operating in the river and we respectfully request that everyone stay well away from being around the equipment. The equipment operators will be focused on our project supervisors and the equipment moves really quick. You are welcome to come down and watch the fun but please do so from a safe distance.

May 4-7  Move the slalom wires, strings and gates back into place. May 12-14 ASCK is hosting the National Team Trials at the Kan and we need to get everything working again.
