Dear AWA Member
The American Watercraft Association invites you to a Free AWA Safety Day on May 16th at Lake Anna, Virginia. This member event is designed to increase your boat handling skills, and boating safety awareness.
The course is made up of a state approved boating course in the morning, followed by a free lunch, and then hands on work with your boat, and a written test for your state safety card. The “hands on” portion is taught by Shawn Alladio of K38 Rescue, the world leader in personal watercraft safety and training.
We keep the course of instruction simple and easy to follow and using your PWC. Tasks include:
-Finding the positive balance points of your PWC, and how it works with throttle and helm manuevering.
-How to correctly board and re-board your craft in the event of becoming separated from it.
-The “Bottle Drill” will help build your confidence with balance and boat control
-Docking a PWC on an E-Z-Dock and conventional dock.
Plus demonstrations on the correct procedures for overturned craft and much more.
This common sense course is FREE. It’s just another way the AWA makes positive contributions to the boating community. The AWA Safety Day is May 16th 2009 at 9:00 a.m. at the Anna Point Marina (www.lcmarine.com) on the north side of the Rt. 208 Bridge at Lake Anna. Space is limited to the first 30 individuals in order to keep the course small for personal attention. Lunch is included with the course.
To register, just call 800-913-2921(AWA1) and we’ll take care of the rest.
Even if you consider yourself an experienced rider, there is always something new to learn about safety, about being a better a boater, and yourself.
Remember, there are only 30 spaces, so please call today.

Live Free. Think Free. Ride Free.
