Important Info For Everybody About the Boat Show (and two slots left to fill)

Hi Gals,

For those of you who haven’t yet volunteered or would like another shift for the Seattle Boat Show, Vivian has two slots still open. If you can help they come with parking for the day and two extra tickets you can give to friends or family. Thanks in advance if you can help. Here are the dates and times

10:30am to 3:30pm Monday the 26th Knot-A-Boat Booth

4:30pm to 8:00pm Saturday the 31st Knot-A-Boat Booth

Below is some important information about BOAT SHOW PROMOTIONS. The NMTA is eager to encourage folks to participate in some very great promotions. Let’s help get the word out.  Please Note a change in policy this year though: Exhibitors & SBS workers cannot enter Seattle Boat Show promotions. Yes, we know, alas.

Welcome to the 2015 BIG Seattle Boat Show! With over 430 boating businesses displaying nearly 1000 boats, three acres of boating accessories, and 225 free boat-ing and fishing seminars, this year’s show is poised and ready to be one of the best yet. We have been working hard to make sure that the show meets your expectations and our number one goal is to ensure that each exhibitor has a great experience before, after, and during the show. If, for any reason, we can help throughout the show, please contact the show office at (206) 381-8000.

Welcome Aboard!

    Hey – The information below states the jousting championship will be held on Sunday the 1st at 11 AM. Was that rescheduled to Sat the 31st at 11 AM?

  2. Thanks for the editing catch, Maggi. Just checked, the jousting championship will be held Saturday the 31st at 7pm. I think we’ll post all the promotion details in a easy to read list at the info desk.
