What's SUP on the the 4th of July?

SUP is a common acronym that stands for Stand-Up Paddle Boarding. SUP is an outdoor water sport that uses both a board and paddle. 

And this year, the Shore Club is hosting a Stand-Up Paddle Board Poker Run! The race begins at the DINOSAUR located at Petitt Beach with a shotgun start promptly at 2:00 PM
All Paddle Board participants are welcome.

What is a Poker Run?  

The objective is for all participants (aka players) to collect cards to make up a five-card poker hand. In the end, the player with the best hand wins and will be awarded a coveted trophy!

Rules of Play

  • All players will meet at the starting point and leave simultaneously.
  • Players may visit any of the four stations in any order they choose.
  • Players will be given one randomly drawn playing card at each stop. 
  • Players must visit all individual stations to complete the game. 
  • The first THREE players to return to the starting (ending) point will receive one extra card to improve their chances at the best hand.
  • The player with the best five-card hand wins!
If you have a board, bring it! 
Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July!

Independence Day 2022 returns BIGGER than Ever!

We're heading into the 4th of July with a complete menu of our traditional Angle Lake community events; we've also added a Paddleboard Poker Run, and we are bringing back the Public Fireworks Display bigger than ever!

Please note some significant changes for this year:

  • The City will not be hosting music or other activities at the park this year. Vehicles will be restricted from using the parking lot, and the boat ramp will remain closed on July 4th. However, the Splash Pad and Park area will remain open to enjoy all day, including up to the end of the fireworks display.
  • The start times for several of our community events have changed. Please review the schedule below to verify start times. 
  • The Fireworks display will be produced from three different locations this year. It will require extra precautions to ensure everyone's safety. Once the barges begin to deploy, beginning at approximately 7 pm, everyone is required to stay out of the areas as indicated on the map below. We will have extra patrols located around the lake to help ensure that you adhere to these requirements. We also ask that you observe city law and refrain from using any personal fireworks. Your compliance is greatly appreciated.

Lily Pad Control Efforts

On April 21st, Northwest Aquatic Management, LLC announced plans for a 'Roundup ®' type chemical application to control the invasive lily pad population within targeted areas of Angle Lake. 

All homes and businesses within one-quarter mile of the planned treatment areas were sent a letter outlining the Noxious Aquatic Weed Treatment program and inviting comments to be sent to the Department of Ecology within 30 days of notice.

Several residents had contacted the city and the Shore Club to voice concern over using chemicals for lily pad control. They urged other environmentally friendly methods to be considered for eradicating these plants. The NAWT plan was brought forward as new business in front of the Angle Lake Shore Club board. Discussion ensued, and a motion passed unanimously, objecting to the plan as presented. A letter from the panel was compiled and sent to the Washington State Department of Ecology stating the Shore Club's objection to the use of chemicals for weed control on Angle Lake. Additional copies of the letter were also sent to Northwest Aquatic Management and the City of SeaTac Parks.

New Plan

On May 13th, Shore Club received an email from a City of SeaTac Parks representative acknowledging our objection to using chemical control for vegetation on Angle Lake. An attachment letter was included summarizing a new plan for manually removing the fragrant water lily and stated the effort would be limited only to the frontage of the Angle Lake Trial. The email then expressed hope that this new plan would be more acceptable to the shore club members. 

Any additional comments or concerns may be directed to SeaTac Parks Projects and Operations Manager Michael Fitzpatrick at (206.973.4671) and shared with the Angle Lake Shore Club Board at anglelakesc@gmail.com.

Update

On June 16th, Shore Club received the following Letter of Confirmation from the Washington State Department of Ecology verifying that a permit will not be issued at this time.  

The One That Didn't Get Away!

The Return of the Angle Lake Shore Club Fishing Derby

The Shore Club continues to return our activities to in-person events. On May 15th, the Todd and the Langenbach residences on the northwest leg of the lake became the site for our ever-popular annual Fishing Derby, Community Barbeque, and Raffle Drawing for 2022. 

Even though the rain was relentless and would not let up, it was terrific to witness the crowd gathered were as happy to meet new neighbors and greet familiar ones as they were as anxious to win some fabulous prizes in our raffle contest! 

Bruce Bryant attempts to enter this
'Filet of Sole' into the oddest fish category!

Overall there were 19 fish brought in for measuring, not including the many that got away! And I'm happy to report several were released alive back into the lake after recording. Actually, it appeared that Richard and Robin Farmer kept bringing in and releasing the same fish several times! After a while, we teased that we would tag the fish to make sure it wasn't the same one being returning for measurement. 

Our 'resident expert' Richard Rock surprisingly came up empty this year; however, our 'consistent Chow' Murphy took first place for longest fish, bringing in the 17 3/4" Rainbow Trout for measuring. With that, she netted the $122 top prize. Young Mr. Carroll brought in the only Perch among all other Trout, awarding him the prize for most odd fish.

As a result of many of the fishing categories going unawarded this year, we shifted the unclaimed remaining prizes over to the raffle table for inclusion in the drawing. Pam and Dave Yoruzu stand out from the many winners as their luck helped them pull in several prizes each. However, the top raffle prize of an electric bicycle went to Katherine Evans-Race. 

Overall, even considering the merciless drenching, this year's Derby was a welcomed opportunity to finally get back together and get acquainted/reacquainted with our neighbors. Event photos captured by our club photographer, Tani Rae Standridge, are available to view through this LINK

Check back regularly as more photos, including a special video, are expected to be added in the near future.

(UPDATE) Easter Picture Status... Sent by Hare-Mail!

As our Easter Bunny, Rabbit De Niro, was preparing for a return to his regular work at IHOP, he penned a note to the Shore Club recapping the “egg-cellent” experience he enjoyed during each of the 10 different dock stops, handing out a total of 35 “ear-resistible” baskets to the awaiting children on Angle Lake.  

He also mentioned that he is anxious to share with everyone the photos from the event, however he currently is having difficulty locating the files on his ‘floppy’ disk. He apologized for the delay but promises to send them as soon as they are located. 

He requests your patience and thanks you for your understanding.

In-Person Activities Return Easter Weekend!

We are all very ‘hoppy’ to announce that many traditional Easter activities are returning to an in-person format. Events are being held on Saturday and Sunday. Masking is recommended but no longer required, and you might still consider maintaining distancing of six Peeps apart!

SeaTac Easter Egg Scramble

The City of SeaTac Parks & Recreation is offering an in-person Egg Scramble this year from 9:00 until 11:00 am. This free event is being held at the SeaTac Community Center in North SeaTac. It will be a fun twist on the traditional Egg Hunt. Kids 10 years and younger will enjoy participating in crafts, visiting the face painter and balloon artists, receiving a goodie bag, and of course, the Easter bunny will all be available to greet all participants. Puget Sound Fire will also be on-site, offering tours of the fire engine.

Shore Club Easter Bunny Dock Hop

On Sunday, April 17th, the Easter Bunny will head south to Angle Lake. Between the hours of 9:00 and 11:00 am, he’ll be circling the lake by way of a pontoon boat, hopping from dock to dock with his basket full of eggs and ready to hand out treats to any eagerly awaiting children and their families.

If you have young children at home and would like to ensure a visit from the Easter Bunny, please contact Jim Todd via email no later than Friday, April 15th, to request a stop. Send an email to jimmijett@gmail.com providing your name, address, and an indication of how many children are expected to be present.

Please also note:  If you have a gift basket that you wish to have personally presented to your child by the Easter Bunny, please have these baskets delivered to Nancy Erickson at post 40 before the deadline of Friday, April 15th as well.

Happy Easter Holiday and Spring Welcoming!

Fishing Prohibited at Angle Lake?

Protesters from the organization, “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals”, are demanding a ban on fishing at Angle Lake, otherwise will aim to disrupt the scheduled fishing derby.   

Could the Angle Lake Shore Club Fishing Derby wind up being a real snoozer? Just days after the Spring Newsletter was posted announcing May 15th as the scheduled date for our Fishing Derby, the ALSC Board received a faxed memo from PETA threatening to release a substantial amount of sleeping pills into the lake if a ban on fishing is not approved.

The faxed document included a copy of the letter sent to the SeaTac Parks & Recreation Department Director  demanding that fishing be banned. The letter lays claim that the violent act of fishing and its consequences do not complement the peace and tranquility of Ange Lake. They state fish are thought to have sufficient brain capacity to experience fear and pain. They cite concern that fish being torn from the water suffer results in a miserable underwater world experience for the many orphaned fry left behind.

The organization then threatens that if fishing is not prohibited, they plan to sabotage the Angle Lake Shore Club Fishing Derby in protest. The notice states that the organization promises to disrupt the event by dissolving sleeping pills into the lake, thus knocking out all the fish for the day and sparing them from anglers’ hooks.

Since Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife is responsible for stocking the lake, we contacted Tu Morrow, Biologist with DFW, asking if a ban is possible. Morrow informed us that Angle Lake is subject to King County regulations and Washington State Shoreline Management rules; however it is not a state park, nor is it a nature preserve. It is a municipal recreation area, and by definition, the recreation area accommodates a wide variety of recreational pursuits -- including fishing. At the time of this writing, SeaTac Park staff has promised that no restriction will be placed on fishing at Angle Lake. Instead, police patrols will be posted at the Angle Lake Nature Trail and Public Boat Ramp, ready to intercept any PETA members suspected of carrying armfuls of tranquilizer tablets.

The Shore Club has confirmed that they are going forward with plans to host the Annual Fishing Derby and Community Barbecue on Sunday, May 15th. The Club requests that any neighbor who witness an individual illegally discharging materials into the lake to immediately report this to local authorities. The ask is that you refrain from dialing 911 and instead use the dedicated phone number that has been set up to receive the fastest possible response. 

Please call 206-ITS-JOKE or (206) 482-5653 to report any suspicious activity. 


(Postscript:  This is an April Fools Joke)

Friends of Tyee Food Drive - March 19th.

The Friends of Tyee, a local community volunteer organization, is coordinating a Food Drive to aid attending students and their families.  Donations collected during this event will be used to replenish the school food pantry and to provide snacks and meals for students attending athletic practices and participating in games throughout the year.  

If you would like to offer your support, please consider stopping by the southwest corner of the Tyee High School campus with a cash donation or Safeway gift cards. Volunteers will be gathered by the Friends of Tyee banner ready to receive your donations.

Friends of Tyee Food Drive
Saturday, 3/19  10:00am - 12:00 pm
4424 S 188th St, SeaTac, WA 98188 

Friends of Tyee High School grew out of a fundraising effort by the Tyee Graduating Class of 1967, as a part of their 50th Class Reunion. Initially, the funds raised were used to support students experiencing food insufficiency. Over time the organization had expanded to include all interested Tyee alumni, community supporters, students and staff. Friends of Tyee works to provide fundraising and volunteer support to Tyee students and staff. Funds raised by Friends of Tyee support a variety of programs and projects at Tyee, such as:

  • Food and nutrition support for students experiencing food insufficiency and insecurity. This may include covering student school meal tickets, support for the onsite Food Pantry, and providing nutritious snacks at school. More than one in ten Tyee students is unhoused, which may likely mean the school is their main source of food.
  • Athletics. Support includes sports participation fees, uniforms, and other expenses related to Tyee’s sports team participation fees. 
  • Student activities supports. This may include academic supplies and other expenses which may help students succeed (like an alarm clock to help get students to school on time).
  • Campus improvement and support. This may include helping with campus cleanup/landscaping activities, banners to celebrate graduation, painting, classroom support equipment, etc.

Highline Schools Foundation is proud to partner with Friends of Tyee and act as their fiscal sponsor. Friends of Tyee works closely with Tyee principals, Tim Schlosser and Victoria Terry. For more information about the Friends of Tyees or to learn about other ways you can help support the group or to become part of the team, please contact Stephanie Nichols at stephanie.nicholsslp@gmail.com

Around the Corner: A Housing Boon!

Continuing in our series of news interests beyond the shoreline of Angle Lake, this time we’re sharing a report on the proliferation of multi-family housing projects that are planned over the next few years. All of the project sites are located within the Angle Lake Sound Transit Station Area located southwest of Angle Lake. 

Southwest Angle Lake Area

  • 19825 State Route 99: International Boulevard Self Storage will be the site for a seven story Mixed Use Apartment Building featuring 289 units.
  • 2929 So 200th Street: The Sea-Tac, LLC project will also be a seven story apartment complex featuring 108 units.

Additionally two Sound Transit Surplus Parcels designated for Transit Oriented Development were recently awarded to the following:

  • ST-TOD North located at 26th Ave So and South 200th Street: Has been awarded to Mercy Housing Northwest and will offer 85 affordable units and feature ground floor commercial and/or office space. 
  • ST-TOD South also located at the intersection of South 200th street and 26th Ave So: Will feature 230 units of multi-family housing. 

“It is clear we have an affordable housing crisis in the Puget Sound region, and I’m proud that Sound Transit is playing a role in helping to address it,” said Sound Transit board member and King County Councilmember Dave Upthegrove. “Of the 2,500 housing units in development or already built, 1,600 of those will be affordable housing. These SeaTac projects are a positive step in addressing a critical community need.” Construction is expected to begin 2022 and 2024 respectively. 

Three other sites that are currently available for redevelopment or will soon be are:

  • 2916 So 200th Street: Angle Lake Mobile Home Park will be closed and clearing will begin late this year.
  • 20011 International Blvd: Bullpen (and surrounding properties) is still available for purchase, speculation is that the recent housing project announcements will bring additional purchase interest to this property.
  • 20008 International Blvd: rumor has it that the 7-11 store across the street from the Bullpen is closing and will be up for sale April 1st (no fooling!).  

As you can see by the list of planned projects, this area of our neighborhood will look vastly different within just a few years.

Around the Corner: Cheap(er) Gas!

No, I'm not pretending to predict the price per barrel of crude oil will be coming down anytime soon – what I'm talking about is an opportunity to save money in these times of hyperinflation!

I usually don't get too excited about saving a few pennies per gallon on gasoline, especially if I have to travel a little bit out of my way to take advantage. But after having faced paying $5.05 per gallon recently in San Diego and with local reader boards consistently displaying $4.29 a gallon around town, I admit my interest was piqued when I caught a sign reading $3.69/gl. 

Considering an average fill-up requires 12-16 gallons for a standard passenger car and 26-38 gallons for a pickup truck – at $3.69 a gallon, you stand to realize savings between $7 to $23 per fill. That's no chump change. 

So just where is this secret petroleum paradise located? Well, first off, it's not intended to be a well-kept secret, although there has been zero wait time every time I've visited. This hot spot filling station is actually hiding in plain sight within the Safeway parking lot at Military Road So and So 164th Street – just look for the Purple Truck displaying the BOOSTER brand name. All you need to do is pull up alongside, send a cellular phone text message to the code shown and follow the simple instructions to pay by credit card. Sound complicated, don't worry! The fine attendants at the filling location will be eager to assist you through the procedural instructions and heck, you don't even need to get out of the vehicle – they'll even pump for you! (Just like being in Oregon without having to go to Oregon – double bonus!). 

I hope you take advantage of this way to save a few bucks. 

  • High-quality Fuel
  • Great local prices
  • Full-service
  • Contactless
Please mention that you were referred by the Angle Lake Shore Club Blog and let us know if you have any other money-saving information to share with your neighbors.
Happy Motoring!  

Voluntary Camera Registration Program

The SeaTac Police Department is creating a security camera registration program to help aid future investigations within the City of SeaTac. The objective of the program is to establish a map of both business and residential exterior facing camera locations throughout the City. The goal is to deter crime and promote public safety through a collaborative partnership between the City of SeaTac Police Department and the community they serve.

Be a Community Safety Partner

Enrolling home and business security cameras in the program will enable the SeaTac Police Department to know where security cameras are located. If something happens within view of a registered camera, knowing who to request video recordings from will expedite police department investigations for solving crimes promptly in your community.

By signing up, you WILL NOT be giving the police department access to your cameras. You are simply letting them know the cameras exist so that police officials can reach out to you if a crime happens in your neighborhood.

The information provided about you and your camera system will be for official use only. Your personal information will remain confidential and not be distributed except as required by law or court order. And SeaTac Police Department Officials will not request or obtain direct access or remote access to the camera equipment, security footage or cloud stored data.

This program is entirely voluntary and you can withdraw your camera information at any time.

Questions about the program, registering your security camera or canceling your registration can be directed to Community Service Officer Regina Burke at rburke@kingcounty.gov
