Considering the continued impact and restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are uncertain what final effects that will have on our 2020 PNW Tow Road-E-O. Unfortunately, without knowing how quickly these limitations will change and what we can expect moving forward, it is impossible to gage our ability to host this event as of now. 

T.R.A.W. has been extremely excited to have our Tow Road-E-O back in the great outdoors and returning to its roots. We are looking forward to having the Thurston County Fairgrounds be the perfect backdrop for that goal and we want to do it right. It just will not be the same if we cannot all be there together and have the show that we were all hoping for; with camping, games, family fun and the Friday Night Kick-off Party with the pig roast and all. 

As many across the nation have had to make the same difficult calls and cancel and postpone their events and tow shows, we will be taking into consideration many things in making our decision. The health and safety of our membership, vendors and attendees will, of course, be our top priority. 

Please watch for updates and news in our member correspondence
As always, safety is T.R.A.W.’s top priority when it comes to our Education Program and for that reason, we do not want to compromise the extensive training we offer due to the current restrictions of social gatherings. Although there are portions of our program that could be offered in an online setting, what is compromised in the loss of the hands-on portion of our training program is invaluable and cannot be successfully taught online. 


Our dedicated instructors our ready and willing to make the necessary adjustments to meet the small group requirements that will be in place and ensure that we have a successful 2020 education season as we graduate through the proposed “stages of reopening”. We will host multiple classes, on both the East and West side, to facilitate the demands and ensure that your students are trained properly in the 2020 season when we can safely do so. 


For that reason, we ask that you remain patient so we can ensure that your employees receive the same level of training that T.R.A.W. is known and trusted for. We will continue to update you in our member correspondence. For those that have already registered, you are first in line when classes are scheduled, and we will be in contact with you when the adjusted schedule is available. 


Should you have any question in the meantime, please contact Emily Wade, AD, at (206) 492-5032.
