Need Help - Center For Wooden Boats Festival 2015By Guest Articles #30 (3ad 53ar)
The Center for Wooden Boats on Lake Union has OK'd a plan of mine to feature a Family Boat Build - building five PDRacers - at the 2015 Wooden Boat Festival which attracts 50,000+ people each year. I've secured promotional help from CWB, Small Craft Advisor Magazine and the local Pocket Yachter Association, but my immediate needs are for advice and volunteers to help pull this event off. I have contacted about 14 from the member list for the State of Washington and am awaiting replies.
Here's the kind of immediate assistance I need and have ask local owners to consider helping with:
- Join the team to help plan the event.
- Help recruit others who would enjoy being involved with such an effort.
- Share your experience with PDRacers and/or any thoughts you might have about making this effort a success.
- Help decide on the specific PDRacer design we'll build at the Wooden Boat Festival and prepare a prototype.
- Be one of the helpers that helps a family build their PDRacer.
- Loan or donate a PDRacer to the Center for Wooden Boats for use as a demonstration boat.
- Help with some of the many tasks required to get a PDRacer program established at the Center for Wooden Boats (e.g. fund-raising, material donation, publicity, etc.)
