From what I heard there were very little tears and lots of smiles which is a good thing. That is unless you were into crying and frowning while rolling your Greenland boat.
Also, the event garnered international attention as a local Greenland newspaper covered the event. The article isn’t in English but you can view the original here then read it here via Google Translate.
Below are some photos from the event.

Ontario Greenland Camp was a Rolling Success [Symposiums]Wednesday, 15 September 2010
From what I hear the Ontario Greenland Camp was a smashing success. They had a sell-out crowd descend on Camp Tamarack just outside Bracebridge, Ontario.
The event had a real powerhouse of mentors which included Cheri Perry, Turner Wilson, Adam Hansen and Heather Lamon. On top of that they also had several local stick-heads including Dympna Hayes and James Roberts (who organized the whole thing via their business, learntokayak.ca), Kelly McDowell, President of The Complete Paddler and Paul Renaud (an instructor at Harbourfront Canoe & Kayak Centre).
David Johnston has been introducing people to the sport of sea kayaking for the past 15 years. He is a senior instructor trainer with Paddle Canada and teaches for several paddling schools in Ontario, Canada. Full Bio.
