We are very pleased to announce that Renee Dufresne will join us as a guest Mentor. Renee is an adviser to the board of Qajaq USA, holding positions of Membership Coordinator, and as the events committee representative for “The Traditional Paddlers Gathering” in Minnesota. Renee loves playing Inuit games, both on and off the ropes and water. Whether it is the artistry of the forward stroke, or the beauty of a well executed roll, passing on, preserving and sharing traditional paddling and culture are her passion. Not just passionate about Greenland paddling, Renee is an ACA Level 3 Instructor, with both Traditional Skills and Rolling Endorsements. She also holds a BCU3*.
Renee will be replacing Christopher Crowhurst who has a scheduling conflict and cannot mentor at this years event.
We are extremely grateful that Renee will add her effervescent and supportive mentor qualities to the event.
