Big thanks to all the volunteers who helped put together a fantastic event in Leduc.
The weather was mostly cooperative and the events went off with minimal delays.
This is a great start for some of our young competitors whether they continue with whitewater slalom or canoe polo this event was hopefully an inspiring experience for them and they will look fondly back onto it when they make it to the national or international levels of competition like so many of us have already.
Checkout the great photos on our Facebook page.
