Once a year Northwest Women in Boating needs you…and it’s now

Northwest Women in Boating provides programs year around and never asks for money, but we ask for your support once a year.  It is important for our future that we step up to volunteer for shifts at the Knot A Boat booth at the Seattle Boat Show that runs from Jan 25th to Feb 2nd.

The Northwest Marine Trade Association allows us to use their comfortable and convenient conference room for our meetings all year. Making Knot A Boat available as an interactive booth at the boat show is our way of giving back. All shifts MUST be covered. It’s fun, you don’t have to be a knot whiz (you can learn while sharing the experience with others).

Please look at the schedule and find a day/time that can work for you.

Finally, there’s ALWAYS lots of guys that come up to the booth who are interested in teaching you a knot THEY know… sometimes all you need to do is be a student!
