The Columbia Willamette Chapter members are primarily in Oregon and southwest Washington State.

The Columbia Willamette Chapter big show is in August each year. This year it is at Lake Oswego, August 18th and 19th.

During the year, the chapter has get-togethers for fun and also to talk about boats.  Just last week they had CRAB FEED since the crab season had finally opened.  In April, a shop tour is scheduled in Tacoma, WA.  Their yearly calendar includes a few cruises including one with an overnight stay in July.

From the Chapter’s own website is this list of events which take place in the greater Northwest.  These chapters coordinate their schedules so that all through the summer, there are events within the area without conflicts.
