    9th Annual Northwest Santa Workshop

    S.N. This is the first year we have meet the first week of October. We were doing it the first week of November but many of the NORPAC members are busy that first weekend so it was moved to the October dates. So yes it is a yearly event and has been at Great Wolf every year. With all the kids that are there it is a good venue for Santa's to get their chops tuned up for the upcoming season. I would encourage you to check the NORPAC web site and see dates for our general membership meetings. They are fun and informative. We would love to have a visitor.

    I don't think I will be able to make it this year. Is this an annual event and is it always in the same place?

    9th Annual Northwest Santa Workshop

    I have heard via the Tundra Telegraph that Jonathan will be doing an interview for his podcast series while at the NORPAC conference. Around the toy shop the Elfs who will be going with Santa to Great Wolf are getting more excited every day. Talking about visiting with all of their Santa friends and playing in the water.

    9th Annual Northwest Santa Workshop

    I am thankful for the opportunity to visit with my brothers and sisters in red up north! I look forward to meeting you face to face and having an opportunity to learn with you and share in our love for what we do. Let’s have a blast.
  8. I would encourage all groups that are looking for training opportunities for their members investigate bring CPW in for a workshop. It is this type of training that takes your game to a new level. You can teach an old dog new tricks.

  11. It is without a doubt that I am very excited and happy to announce that Santa Johnathan Burton, host of The Professional Santa Claus Podcast will be our special guest speaker Saturday October 6th at our 9th Annual Northwest Santa Workshop.

  12. Thank you Santa Jerry for your kind words. It is a pleasure for myself and our board members to serve our membership! The Advanced CPW was a great success with 35 total attending the two day workshop.
  13. It is so good to see that there is so much interest in another CPW event here in the Northwest. Trever and the officers of our club are to be commended for recognizing the desire of our many members for more training opportunities. They listened and responded with this weekend training opportunity. I think 28 registrations speaks volumes about the desire of NORPAC members to be the best they can be. See you all there.
  14. Great News!! We now have 28 registrations ( 5 couples ) allowing us to extend the registration deadline to Saturday June 2nd. This is going to be a first of it's kind, ground breaking, two day workshop offered to the Christmas Performer community.
