NWWB Meeting Mon. Jan. 15th A Gathering to Relax And Practice Knots – Note: KNOT-A-BOAT Volunteers still needed

Hi Gals,

ATTENTION: KNOT-A-BOAT volunteers still needed, it’s our way of giving back,  PLUS, doing a shift is a whole lot of fun and you get an extra ticket. Please reach out to Vivian and ask for the schedule email nwwbviv@gmail.com subject line KNOT-A-BOAT Volunteering…Thank you in advance!

We look forward to seeing you on Monday the 15th for a relaxed evening getting up to speed on some basic knots.We will gather to practice knot tying. Vivian will have stations set up allowing for a fun atmosphere in which to familiarize yourselves with knots you may not often use. Hey, unless you’re a hardy racing sailor, it’s winter, most of us are rusty!  Those of you who will be volunteering for KNOT-A-BOAT at the Seattle Boat Show will find this very helpful. And, important…KNOT-A-BOAT volunteers…Vivian will have your tickets to give you so we hope you can make it.

Pat Park has a trick knot that we hope she’ll teach; it’s fun to share with folks. Bring any fun knot tying ideas you may have (Hey, got any knot jokes?). If you’re volunteering you’ll find that some folks will come by and actually teach you some knots. Last year I got quite good at a Flying Bowline that I learned from a couple of the Boat Show attendees. They had fun teaching it. There are many enjoyable moments like that when  you volunteer.

Date: Monday, January 15th 2018

Time: 7:00pm – till 9:00 pm or so (Hors d oeuvres, snacks, wine, etc. are welcomed but not required. We enjoy socializing after the presentation.)

    Hi Vivian,

    I plan to come to the SBS Monday and could probably work Sunday or Tuesday or Monday morning.

    I don’t think I will make the 15th as I have our Senior Center Foundation Retreat at 10:00 am Tuesday and then PT later in the afternoon…don’t like to drive at night and doubt I can get home quick enough Tuesday…
