West Marine.. to server or not to serve

West Marine events. I guess WM does these things every now and then to inform/help people and of course boost sales. I got asked to help with one. What they want is an informal presentation (proper shore power). Not really any benefit, other than meeting a few locals who probably don't know or care about the difference between 120ac and 12dc but hey.. right? worth doing or no?

WM does a lot of seminars around here, some of which are well attended when done by people who are both good at it and knowledgeable. Assuming you fit that description, it would be a service to those of us who can always learn something. Some of the more popular seminars have to do with electronics, navigation and general maintenance. Clearly, it also helps to get poeple into the store(s), elicit customer support and generates sales although from my experience, the latter is not that significant.

I agree. Go for it. Giving back is what it is all about.

Here's another vote to go for it. It'll be good experience if nothing else. The giving back notion is reason enough in my book as well.
