The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission Boating Programs is recruiting experienced and outgoing volunteers to help staff a the Seattle Boat Show Booth, which features thousands of watercraft, seminars and the latest boating accessories.
The show is Jan. 27 through Feb. 5 at the Century Link Field in Seattle. Show hours are from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
Volunteers will be accompanied by staff from the program, boating-affiliated organizations or other volunteers to help provide information regarding the boater card requirement and other boating safety information to the public.
Volunteers are needed for all shifts, and those that can help with the booth for an entire day are especially needed.
Boat show volunteers will receive a badge and one additional pass per shift to bring a guest on the same day or another day.
The state Parks Boating Programs will provide reimbursement for parking (receipts and travel vouchers must be submitted after the show). Overnight lodging, mileage and salary will not be paid.
The State Parks booth will be in the Boating Safety Education Center, which will include all boating safety education organizations to learn about the education law and requirements and to get boating questions answered.
