It’s time to support Northwest Women in Boating by quickly signing-up to volunteer for Knot-A-Boat shifts at the Seattle Boat Show. We need your help to enhance the Boat Show with our the fun- to-participate-in activity. It is our way of giving back to the Northwest Marine Trade Association – they provide the room for our meetings which enables our group to thrive.
For each shift you fill, you will receive a ticket to enter the boat show and one to share with someone else. No parking passes this year, but the baseball parking lot was cheap last year and it’s not too far to walk. It’s a fun event so please sign up to help, it’s what you can do to enable the ongoing programs and events of Northwest Women in Boating and, importantly, to put women at the forefront of the Seattle Boat Show.
Please don’t put this off, we need you, you don’t have to be a knot expert.
Here’s how to to sign up for a shift/s…
Send an email to email@example.com requesting a copy of the shift schedule. Pick your shift/s and let Vivian know ASAP by email. Do not send the schedule back, but send the times you will volunteer for. YOU MUST INCLUDE your name, phone number and snail mail address so tickets can be mailed to you. (Or you can pick them up at the NWWB meeting on January 15th.
Publications continue to list learning to tie knots as a very important part of boating. In the latest digital issue of Sea Magazine, pg. 44, is a featured article, Smarter By Summer, 12 Ways to be Better Boater by Opening Day; Number 8 is tying knots. Let’s enjoy providing a platform for learning to tie knots using our wonderful prop Knot-A-Boat.
If you haven’t done it, it’s a whole lot of fun and an interesting ‘inside look’ at the Seattle Boat Show.
Thanks in advance,
Vivian Strolis co-chair of NWWB
