It's Tapas Time!

Well, they pulled it off yet again! Our Tapas Organizers have done it, they’ve successfully secured the final station host location needed to complete the five stations required to stage our Tasty Tapas Float Around.
Tasty Tapas – Saturday, August 10th. 4:00 PM until 8:00 PM

If you have not yet signed up for the Tasty Tapas Float Around, our late summer lakeside main event, you must act now to reserve a spot otherwise you may very well miss the boat as seats are starting to fill quickly! The fun starts at 4 PM SHARP and runs until 8:00 PM. Open to ALSC Members Only and their invited guests. The cost to attend is just $30 per person.

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.

Angle Lake Clean Sweep!

The Angle Lake Shore Club “Lake Clean Sweep” is scheduled for this Saturday, July 20, 2019, from 9AM to 1PM. 

We encourage all residents to volunteer to help the ALSC with shoreline and lake bottom clean-up and trash removal. We will also have groups assigned to clearing trash from our streets located between International Blvd on the west to I-5 on the east, and from S.188th Street on the north to S. 200th Street on the south. in cleaning up our neighborhood. 

The shoreline and lake bottom on the west end between the public park to the mobile home park is in dire need of scuba divers, snorkelers and waders to help remove submerged trash and debris.  If you know anyone who dives, please contact Judy Williams at (206) 419-4637. 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.
