Oars may be ordered from the BoatShop at least one week in advance of the workshop. Sunday, January 8 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. $45 for members, $55 for non-members. Fee includes all materials except oars and lines. Call (253) 857-9344 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register, or visit www.gigharborboatshop.org for more information.
