Stan is a paddler of many trades and active Yellowknife community member. Fearless at navigating new waters throughout Northwest Territories and various seasons. Always willing to offer his help and time, Stan brings a personality to the board that makes meetings a joy to sit in! (Sometimes he brings pizza too)…


Denis Lord- Board Member

Denis Lord is a wanna be Northerner from South-East and a reporter specialized in non fake news. Denis has done more canoeing than kayaking and has paddled the Yukon River (the hardest was to not kill himself with the bear repellent). Denis is a dedicated member who you will always see working on his own skills and helping out at our events!
