Super Secret Special Preview


Your state workshop committee has been hard at work trying to bring you the best speakers we can get. We are happy to announce this Super Secret Sneak Preview of our workshop matrix.  Please click on the link above to see what we have planned already.  Since this is a sneak preview, please keep in mind that we may have to make some last minute tweaks and changes to the plan.

The Bus Is Filling Up Quickly!

Due to popular demand, WAPT sets up 3rd hotel room block


Rooms are filling up very quickly for the conference.  In order to help out conference attendees, your association has set up a block of rooms at a third Yakima hotel, the Holiday Inn Express – Yakima.  This hotel, conveniently located behind the Howard Johnson Motel, also offers breakfast as part of the hotel rate.  Make sure to mention the WAPT conference to get special room pricing.  A link and phone number to the hotel has been placed on the conference page.

Pinewood Bus Derby News

Pinewood Bus Derby registration is now open…it’s game time!


For those looking for more ways to compete at the state conference, registration is now open for the 2nd annual Pinewood Bus Derby.  This event will be held on Sunday, June 21, 2015, in the Yakima Convention Center.

This competition gives districts another place to show off not only mechanical abilities, but also a place to show off some incredible design skills.  Cash prizes are available for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place buses, as well as a cash prize for the best overall bus.

Make sure you get your registration forms in; we’re looking forward to another great competition this year.  Links to the Registration Form and Rules are located on the State Conference page.

Good luck to all those entering buses in the upcoming competition!
