Canmore - Thank you!

On behalf of my crew, I would like to thank the following that have made this bouldering  comp a great success.


The Town of Canmore - Elevation Place for hosting a very challenging but successful event.

Thank you Brian Spear & Sara Lilley for supporting my team in making this happen for our ACA Athletes!


Thank you Evgenii, Matt, Tadashi, Jan and Robyn for the outstanding route setting. Great feedback from the Athletes!


Thank you to the tireless volunteers and judges for supporting and caring for our athletes!

These kind of events wouldn’t even leave the ground if I wouldn’t have been able to count on you to step-in. The many parents & Youth Athletes for their time judging, working Iso, blowing the whistle, registration, scoring, escorting… Fantastic job!


Thank you to the coaches and parents for your patience, respect and understanding of how daunting an event like this can be to run smoothly.


Thank you to the support of my friends and members of the ACA so I could deliver, in total confidence, a timely event.


Thank you to Peter Kwan for his photography! Watch on the ACA page in the next week or so for the event pictures!
