Tall Ships Tacoma 2008 Manager Selected

The Tacoma Tall Ships Society says that the Seattle firm One Reel has been chosen to manage Tacoma Tall Ships 2008, a repeat performance of the successful Tacoma Tall Ships 2005 event, which brought dozens of large sailing vessels to Commencement Bay. The decision was made Wednesday by the Foss Waterway Development Authority. According to an e-mail from Skip Anderson, TTSS' founding director, the Tacoma Events Commission and Festivals, Inc. also bid for the job. The FWDA awarded the contract to the organization that manages Seattle's Bumbershoot and other large scale events. Anderson says he will discuss with One Reel how his group can work with the event producer, perhaps as the "in-water" team.
