A Good Vibe Attracts A Great Tribe

SeaTac based art-focused non-profit VibeHunters was formed by a couple of your Angle Lake neighbors, Bruce Bryant and Jim Todd. Their mission is to make SeaTac a more fun and vibrant place to call home through expanding art and creativity in town. The organization currently has two projects underway with ideas coming together for more.

You may have seen signs around for the SeaTac ArtAttack! contest encouraging residents of our town to create yard art installations all over the city. Quite a few entries have been received already and there is hope for a bunch more by the time the contest ends on Labor Day. Please consider joining in by making something fun at your place, or even at your neighbor’s yard.

The second project that is also in the works involves placing art in a location along South 188th Street. VibeHunters has received a grant from 4Culture, the King County arts organization, for an amount of $4500 to go toward the project. A well known local artist has been hired to conceive, build, and install this art piece and it will be exciting to see it go in! 

Our original budget for this piece was $8500 and we’d love to come near that figure to have local art we can be proud of. So, I’m here to ask our neighbors for donations to support this project and perhaps even start to fund future artistic endeavors. We’ve raised $600 so far and hope to fully fund this installation soon.

We’re thinking that since there was no annual fireworks display this year, instead of having your unallocated 2020 budgeted fireworks dollars just lying around unused, perhaps you’d consider contributing them to our 188th Street Art Project instead? VibeHunters is a registered non-profit so any donations are eligible for a tax deduction.

Neighborhood Spotlight: Pat Johns


Angle Lake Neighbor Pat Johns inducted into Bowlers Hall of Fame (again!)

It is our honor to announce to you that this year, 2020, Pat Johns, owner of HiLine Lanes, has been inducted into the Washington State Bowling Association’s Hall of Fame in recognition for his many accomplishments in the Bowling Industry!


Pat and Valerie purchased Burien’s HiLine Lanes in 1994.  Pat also is the resident Pro, drilling bowling balls and giving lessons. Prior to that, he was the Pro at Skyway Park Bowl from 1978-1993.

Pat has a multitude of accomplishments in the bowling community. Among the most notable:

That same year, Valerie had a 777.  Husband and wife held the high series for men and women in the Greater Seattle Bowling Association that year.  Pat also had an 814 in a 2011 “Sport League”.  That’s a 271 average for 3 games. Sport Leagues are leagues that put out a much more difficult lane oil pattern to make the league more competitive like the Pro Bowlers’ Tour.
  • Over 60 “300” games throughout Pat’s career.
  • 1973 Made the final 24 in the Pro Bowlers’ Assn. Seattle Open at just 19 years old.

If that weren’t enough! Pat is an inductee in several Halls of Fame over the years.
