---EDUCATION HELP NEEDED---
We are looking for volunteers willing to help instruct members and fellow boaters in on the water boat handling. We get requests for instruction in regards to departing, docking and close quarter handling. In general, slow speed boat maneuvering. If you could give us a hand, please let Otto know.
We also need a host for the ABC Class that starts February 7th, 2018. There are 4 instruction sessions and the exam. A total of 5 meetings. The host would assist the presenter with the computer-Power Point set up if needed, go over the prior week’s homework answers, and turn the class over to the presenter for that evening’s class. It’s not required for the host to stay for the entire instruction session. Lt Brenda Williamson has business travel at this February time frame and will need someone to cover when she is out of town. If you are able to help, please contact Otto or Brenda.
If you know of someone who might be interested in joining TPS, contact Jackie Mattox, (253)732-2264 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
