 PaddlingABC was formed in the winter of 2009 with a flurry of posts on CalPaddle (Calgary area paddling forum, [[https://​www.facebook.com/​groups/​365932053518938/​|now on Facebook]]) and a face to face meeting to set some priorities. ​ The challenge for the whitewater paddling community in the west is that the Stewart Smith guidebooks we all treat as bibles are now out of print and becoming harder and harder to find.  These guidebooks are in many ways still the gold standard for us all and we owe a great debt to Stewart and the work he put into them.  In order to address this challenge PaddlingABC was created. ​ It has gone through three versions and is always a work in progress. ​ In 2014 the management of PaddlingABC was taken over by both [[http://​www.paddlealberta.org|Paddle Alberta]] and the [[http://​www.albertawhitewater.ca|Alberta Whitewater Association]]. PaddlingABC was formed in the winter of 2009 with a flurry of posts on CalPaddle (Calgary area paddling forum, [[https://​www.facebook.com/​groups/​365932053518938/​|now on Facebook]]) and a face to face meeting to set some priorities. ​ The challenge for the whitewater paddling community in the west is that the Stewart Smith guidebooks we all treat as bibles are now out of print and becoming harder and harder to find.  These guidebooks are in many ways still the gold standard for us all and we owe a great debt to Stewart and the work he put into them.  In order to address this challenge PaddlingABC was created. ​ It has gone through three versions and is always a work in progress. ​ In 2014 the management of PaddlingABC was taken over by both [[http://​www.paddlealberta.org|Paddle Alberta]] and the [[http://​www.albertawhitewater.ca|Alberta Whitewater Association]].
