Harvie Passage Slalom Race - September 29, 2012

Come be a part of the first ever Slalom Race at Harvie Passage! Thanks to Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resources we have permission to put up gates for one day on September 29th and hold our last Alberta Cup of the season.

The river is very low, so the right channel is appropriate for Novice paddlers. It will also be sufficient to challenge even the best in Alberta. We expect several National Team members and possibly even a past Olympian or two.

The best parking is in the lot at the end of 17a St NW. We have permission for one vehicle to park on site so we can bring in the Gates and Bipods. You will have to carry boats, food, etc in from the parking lot.

Washrooms are located in Pearce Estate Park, by the parking lot.
