THE NORTHWEST WOMEN IN BOATING SEATTLE BOAT SHOW PROJECT
Important changes Please Note: NWWB will NOT be staffing the information booth this year due to policy changes at the NMTA. We will, though, be seeking volunteers to staff Knot-A-Boat.
Northwest Women in Boating is fortunate to be able to meet in the comfortable facility at the Northwest Marine Trade Association. As our way of giving back, we organize gals involved with boating to staff our Knot-A-Boat at the Seattle Boat Show each year. This interactive booth, importantly, puts a female face on boating expertise.
WHAT YOU GET FOR HELPING
You’ll get a lot from the experience. The shifts truly are fun and offer a chance to get to know other like-minded women. Doing one or more shifts is a unique way to experience the Seattle Boat show and learn a lot. Parking will NOT be free this year so you will need to look into carpooling, transit or taking the shuttle from Lake Union. You will receive two tickets per shift one to use the day of your shift and one to gift to someone who would enjoy the boat show
If you have any concerns about filling a shift, let us know; we bet we can lay them to rest.
THOROUGH INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT TO DO WILL BE AVAILABLE
KNOT A BOAT will be located next to the information booth.
We know that many people who boat need help in learning how to properly tie up their boat and it is going to be a great way to help them. Often people learn how to tie knots but not how to use them, so the knots are forgotten because they are not used. Knot-A-Boat provides them with an opportunity to practice basic knots and proper line handling.
The purpose of Knot-A-Boat is to be an asset to the Seattle Boat Show giving the NMTA a hands on activity in support of making boating more fun. It will have lots of printed materials and examples of how to tie knots and handle lines so you do not need to be a teacher or an expert, but a supportive friendly person.
We look at Knot-A-Boat as a great asset to the show, not to bring us lots of attention but as a service project in support of boating. We are not selling anything but the joy of boating.
Thank You again for your willingness to volunteer.
