Each Spring in the early years,  in preparation for the June canoe trips, the Alberta school had a canoe race from Rocky Mountain House to the school at Genesee. In later years this race was run from Drayton Valley to the school.

This gallery shows pictures of the start of the race at Rocky Mountain House (the old bridge) from some point in the early 1970’s.
