Greenland Week 2010 - Saturday Oct. 30 to Sunday, Nov 7.

Oct 30
Description

What, Where and when:
Paddlers from across the region and the world are traveling to the Seattle area this October for Greenland Week, a celebration of traditional kayaking skills being held from Saturday, Oct. 30 to Sunday, Nov. 7 at Lake Sammamish State Park in Issaquah, Washington.

Why:
The event was inspired by the Greenland National Qajaqing Championships, which began in 1985 as a way to pass the cultural heritage of kayaking on to younger generations of Inuit. In 2000, the Greenland games were opened to foreign competitors -- spurring a growing global interest in traditional kayaking skills and lore. This international event is drawing a growing number of competitors coming from across the world.

Schedule:
Lessons and training run from Saturday, Oct. 30 to Thursday, Nov. 4
Competition Friday Evening through Sunday Nov. 5-7th
