Puget Sound Chapter
TSCA-Puget continues to monitor the Coronavirus situation closely.
Our organization fully supports the stay-at-home, stay-safe policy. We realize that many in our group's demographic fall into the at-risk category. The health and safety of our membership is of the utmost importance. This is the socially responsible thing to do.
As we continue to monitor the Coronavirus situation over the course of the year, we will provide updates on the website and on the Groups.io message board.
As the event dates approach, be sure to check the website and/or Groups.io to determine if the event has been cancelled.

Our 50 + member organization represents aficionados of rowing, sailing, kayaking, canoeing, boat building and restoration.
Our intent is to bring together all interested people in Washington and British Columbia to join in area boating events and chapter-sponsored messabouts.
Despite the organization's name, we are not in any way concerned with what boats are made of, or how old the design is, or any such artificial criteria. So, new or old style, new or old type of materials, human, wind, solar, conventional engine, etc., all are welcome here! Our goal is to help folks get out and use their boats.
We do most of our inter-chapter communication via our Groups.IO forum, go here to join
