Reporting For Duty

Lifeguards On Duty all Summer at Angle Lake 
While the nation is still faced with a shortage of open water lifeguards, the City of SeaTac Parks Department has been successful in staffing a full team of lifeguards. These guards will be on duty seven days a week from 12:00 PM to 8:00 PM.  This includes four guards Monday through Friday and five guards scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays. More guards are available for when the weather is especially hot. 

Lifeguards Make Three Saves at Angle Lake 
So far even though the weather has not always been ideal this summer, Angle Lake still has had lots of visitors, and the City lifeguards have had to make several saves already. 
In early-July, Lifeguard Erik Herrera responded to a couple that was out in the lake and had become separated from their floatation device. Erik went out on the paddleboard and brought them back to shore securely. 

On July 22nd, a teenager was in the deep end of the swim area and started to struggle. Beach Manager Brandi Jewett dove in and pulled him to back to the shallow part of the lake. 

And recently, Lifeguard Nick Ainsworth heard a cry for help north of the swim area. He looked and saw a teenage girl struggling to tread water. Nick dove in and brought the young girl back to shore safely. 

Thank you to the entire team of City lifeguards! We value you and the important role you play in keeping Angle Lake safe!

Washington State Paddle Board Laws
The United States Coast Guard (USCG) has officially classified stand up paddleboards (SUP) as a vessel.
State law requires all vessels, including canoes, kayaks and stand up paddleboards, to have at least one properly fitted Coast Guard-approved life jacket for each person on board. And all children, age 12 and younger, are always required to wear life jackets.

Please know that motor and large sail vessels have the right of way over paddleboards and kayaks. It is your responsibility to know the rules of the water, so be safe.

SeaTac Military Veterans and Active Service Member Memorial

The SeaTac Veterans Memorial will pay tribute to military veterans of the past and present for their service. 
The memorial will include a monument marker, plaza with benches and incorporate engraved paver tiles as a lasting way to remember our loved ones who have passed away, been killed in the line of duty, or who have served or currently serve our country.

The Veterans Memorial is located adjacent to the SeaTac Community Center at 13735 24th Ave. South, SeaTac. While located in SeaTac, the Veterans Memorial is a welcome place to honor veterans from every community.

This project will be completed by Veteran's Day on November 11, 2019 for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The City of SeaTac invites you to honor a loved one by donating one or more paver tiles.  Paver tiles are 12"x12", granite tiles.  The minimum donation for each tile is $125.  Donations are always accepted; however, in order to engrave the tiles in time for the Veteran’s Day ceremony, you’ll need your order form and payment turned into SeaTac Community Center no later than August 31, 2019.

For more information please contact the SeaTac Community Center at 206.973.4680 or download the Donation Form.

During prior years, Tapas have been attended by Gilligan and his fellow castaways; Cleopatra returned from the dead to join us with her minions; a group of gondoliers gathered to give out goodies to arriving guests; and even a Tropical Island populated with Pacific Islanders floated onto the scene – one can only imagine who, or what might appear this year!

Tasty Tapas has proven to be an evening full of fun, food, themed stations, costumed guests and a great opportunity to meet with neighbors and make new friends. Participants will be assigned to start at one of four dining stations set up around the lake for guests to visit only by boat. Each of the four locations will present a themed selection of appetizers and liquid libations to tickle your taste buds. Throughout the evening at set intervals, groups will receive a signal to depart for another station until all four stations have been visited. Be sure to pace yourself and save room for the grand finale fifth station where all participants will come together to enjoy a bonfire, dessert, and coffee where all can mingle.

You can take your own boat around the course (No drinking and driving please!) For those who do not have a boat, the organizers will help reserve seating on other pontoon boats to ferry tasters from stations to station. If you require a pickup please call Jim Todd at 206-226-9965 or emailing him at

Yes. We Are At That Time of Year.

End of July is a time for club members reflect back on the lasting memories created by participating in the numerous successful events that make up our 4th of July celebration here at Angle Lake; an opportunity to continue to awe over the visual spectacle produced by our amazing fireworks display; to stand with pride over the pristine environment the Clean Sweep achieved; and of course, a time of incredible stress for the organizers of the Annual Tasty Tapas Float Around!

History has proven that this is a very popular event to attend, however, there is a misconceived perception that it may be difficult to be a host. Unfortunately, each year the Tapas is riddled with uncertainty due to the lack of station hosts being secured in advance of event planning. In recent years, organizers have miraculously pulled off the event at the last minute by making phone calls and in-person visits, delivering a plea to sign up to host a tapa station.  So far they’ve confirmed the location for the final dessert station and a maybe – however the event needs to secure four tasting stations no later than Tuesday, July 23rd to ensure the event will occur as planned.

FINAL CALL: If you reside along the shoreline (regardless if north-south or east-west); you enjoy the tapas and you’re interested in seeing it succeed again this year, please commit to hosting a tasting station. There are typically additional hands available to help you host and you will be well informed by the tapas team so that you’re well prepared for the event.  Please call  Jim Todd at 206-226-9965 to sign up. 

A follow-up announcement will be posted regarding a final GO / NO GO decision.

The club will reimburse them for the air in their tanks.

After the clean-up from 9AM to 1PM, participating volunteers will be invited to a picnic lunch at the Angle Lake Manor Club Beach and entered into our appreciation raffle drawing for ALSC branded shirts and other prizes.

If you live in this area, we urge you to come to Angle Lake Park by 9AM on Saturday, July 20, 2019, to grab some heavy-duty trash bags and picker-upper grabbers to join with your neighbors in this rewarding and fun event.
