Weekend at the BoatShop Featuring Jim Valley

Family/Child
Jim's work in schools began in 1980 when he was invited to by an administrator to create a "Friendship Workshop" in a troubled school, and to write a song that would "help us learn to get along." The song Rainbow Planet was born. The workshop was so successful that Jim was soon traveling to schools throughout Washington state where he wove children's words and feelings into songs, helping them feel special about themselves. He now travels around the world presenting workshops and concerts to children, teachers and families. 1 pm May 19th $5 per family advanced registration | $10 per family at the door  Call (253) 857 9344 to purchase tickets or email info@gigharborboatshop.org

Tales at the BoatShop

Children, Education
What would it have been like if you worked on your Dad’s fishing boat 100 years ago? Where would you fish? How long would you be gone? What would you eat? Where would you sleep? What would you do when you weren’t fishing? What would the boat be like? Families with children ages five and older will enjoy a maritime-themed multimedia event about early commercial fishing and the Gig Harbor families who pioneered the industry. Bring your questions. Check out full event details here- http://gigharborboatshop.org/weekend-at-the-boatshop/. Call (253) 857 9344 to register or email info@gigharborboatshop.org.

Weekend at the BoatShop Featuring Daniel Evans

Talks/Lectures, Education
The inside passage to Alaska has been paddled by native canoes since time immemorial, sailing craft for centuries, and after someone found gold in the Klondike the route was jammed with steamboats full of prospectors elbowing each other out of the way for the promise of fortune. It’s in the spirit of tradition, exploration, and the lawless self-reliance of the gold rush that Race to Alaska was born. R2AK is the first of its kind and North America’s longest human and wind powered race, and currently the largest cash prize for a race of its kind.  Join us as Daniel Evans, Race Boss, provides an insider’s perspective. on the Race to Alaska (R2AK). 4 PM. May 20th. 1 ticket purchase includes Daniel Evan's talk & The Old Yellers Performance - for more info visit http://gigharborboatshop.org/weekend-at-the-boatshop/.
