Here are a few shots from the Water walker film festival held in Yellowknife of the evening of April 8th/06. Sixty folks attended the viewing which we felt was well received. Thanks from the Paddlers for showing your support. Special thanks to Ian Johnston, Bob Ellison, Naomi Crawford,Greg Loftus and the charming lady (mystery woman) that helped draw the door prizes . We would also like to thank the sponsors that donated door prizes and refreshments. Thanks to Yellowknife Direct Charge Co-op, Overlander Sports, Tundrasails, WAMP and the Northern United Chruch. Thanks one and all for making the event possible and we look forward to doing it again next year.
