Traditional Qajaqers of the South
I am very excited to announce the fourth annual Traditional Qajaqers of the South (TRAQS) festival. Our event will be held from March 21-24 at the Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center on beautiful Lake Placid in Central Florida. This will be an immersive Greenland kayaking weekend that includes paddling and rolling skills, presentations, morning yoga, kayak games and exposure to Inuit culture. We will be joined by several prominent instructor/mentors including internationally known mentors Cheri Perry, Alison Sigethy and Greg Stamer. Our special guest this year will be Mia Kanstad Kulseng from Norway. We will also include a full day Greenland paddle making class led by Benjamin Fontenot. All event information, fees and registration are available on our website. Hope you can join us.
