On August 1, 2006, the MTBE participated in the Much More Lecture Series at VONZWECK leading The Mt. Baldy Expedition Nautical Knot Workshop. The workshop included a lecture on the history of rope with an emphasis on the technology of laid line and was followed by a practical demonstration of a dozen of the MTBE's favorite nautical knots. Knot tying kits consisting of an illustrated booklet, dowel, and piece of line were given to the audience.
