The 2017 Grand Rapids Boat show is scheduled to run February 15th – 19th, with setup taking place on February 14th between 3:00-5:00 PM.
All volunteers will gain free admission to the boat show for all 4 days. We need 2 people per shift at a minimum. If we get 3-4 people per shift, that will allow 2 people to take a break at a time.
It is a fun time to start thinking about the new boating season by seeing what is new with boats and boating related activities.

Contact Greg Heath at to sign up for your volunteer time slot. Volunteers still needed!
