It may be very sunny so make sure to bring water, sunscreen and good protective clothing.

The Seafair Pirates are always quite the sight as they appear, arrive, conquer, and entertain. Please check for updates on the Seafair calendar link here. On their site they show the Alki landing at 2 pm, but also say this:

Due to the unpredictability of the tides, the Seafair Pirates cannot predict exactly what time they’ll land. However, they normally arrive around 1:30 p.m.

Seafair Pirates Landing festivites
July 8, 2017 10:00 am-6:00 pm
Alki Beach

Revered by some as the official start to summer, the annual Pirates Landing returns yet again as the Seafair Pirates sail in from the seven seas to storm Alki Beach. Exhibit booths and food vendors will be present all day, along with kids’ rides and a pirate look-a-like contest.

Nothing is more synonymous with summer in Seattle than Seafair. The non-profit festival was founded in 1950 to attract tourists to Seattle and promote marine events to enhance Seattle’s reputation as the Boating Capital of the World. Today, Seafair touches more than two million people through 75 sanctioned events throughout the summer. In addition to Seafair’s signature events, Seafair supports dozens of local community events throughout the region.

Seafair’s Signature Events include: (bold text: West Seattle access)

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jul 9 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Conversation & Film on Gender Discrimination @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Jul 11 @ 6:00 pm

Conversation & Film on Gender Discrimination presented by Southwest Youth and Family Services in partnership with Kent Youth and Family Services. July 11, 2017 @ 6 pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW.

Join SWYFS for a conversation and film on gender discrimination, July 11, 2017 @ 6 pm.

We have all seen discrimination in many forms in our lives and our communities, and discrimination based on gender occurs daily in countless situations and circumstances. While there have been significant steps forward on gender equity, there is still a desperate need for more work to be done. We would like to invite you to be a part of our discussion about gender discrimination as it exists in our community, watch a film highlighting an example from our own history and work together to create a better path through it for ourselves, our neighbors and our future generation. On Tuesday, July 11 (6pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle), students and staff from SWYFS will facilitate a discussion surrounding the film “Anita” and give you the opportunity to learn a bit more about programming at SWYFS, as well as an opportunity to support and get involved with our efforts.

This event is the first of two community conversations, in partnership with Kent Youth and Family Services. The second event will be held in Kent on August 9 and will discuss human trafficking. The registration link below will allow you to register for one or both events (free admission). A light dinner and drinks will be served. We ask you to come with an open mind and your thoughts on addressing these issues in our communities.

Thank you for your commitment to equity for all in our community. We look forward to this discussion with you.
Register for the Next Up Series on July 11 here.

Art Walk event at Viscon Cellars with Words & Wine and Lindsay Peyton
Jul 13 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Three Texas transplants are joining forces to show West Seattle that wine, art and literature make the best pairing.

Winemaker Ben Viscon, entrepreneur Jessica Trouillaud and artist Lindsay Peyton are planning a unique event for the next West Seattle Art Walk, beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 13 at Viscon Cellars, located at 5910 California Ave SW.

“We’re bringing three different forms of art together in a really fun and interesting way,” Trouillaud said. “And we’ve all migrated from Texas to West Seattle on different paths and walks of life to create art here.”

Matching the perfect wine with reading material is Trouillaud’s speciality – and she has built a business around her passion entitled “Words & Wine.”

Part book club, part online wine retailer, Words & Wine is designed to appeal to both wine lovers and bookworms.

Shoppers select a book they want to purchase and Trouillaud selects a wine to go with it. She includes a postcard explaining her selection as well as a bookmark with reading notes and tasting notes printed on it.

For the West Seattle Art Walk, Trouillard will select books that go with the wines available at Viscon Cellars.

And for visual pairings with Viscon’s fruit of the vine, oil paintings by Lindsay Peyton will be on the walls.

Peyton, Trouillaud, and Viscon not only share Texan roots; they also all work to create unique experiences through their craft.

“Lindsay’s paintings are incredibly expressive and beautiful,” Trouillaud said. “Ben’s wine is full of impressive character, each having a great background story. And with Words & Wine, I bring together literature and wine in a way that highlights each.”

Peyton said that in addition to great wine, the tasting room at Viscon Cellars has a special ambience, which makes it a natural fit for art and community.

“Viscon Cellars almost has its own life,” Peyton said. “People are more friendly there; they talk to each other, to strangers. Ben has made it a gathering space for friends and neighbors, with a warm, inviting feel. I hope my paintings are the same way – so that viewers feel like they can walk into the interiors and spend time there.”

It is no coincidence that Viscon Cellars has become an art gallery and venue for the West Seattle Art Walk.

Showcasing local artists has been a part of the vision owner Ben Viscon has had for his tasting room from the start.

“I love the arts,” he said. “My family owned some art galleries in El Paso, where I grew up. My dad had a kind of combination art gallery and artist supply studio that he owned and ran. As a kid, I worked with him all the time on weekends and summer breaks. I gained an appreciation for all forms of art.”

He wants to help local artists share and sell their work.

“Now that I am a small business owner myself, it is important to me to support art,” he said. “I want to feature local artists and help them tell their story. It is also a conversation piece with my customers. They come in for the wine, and then they start noticing the walls are full of beautiful art and start asking questions.”

Viscon said Trouillaud’s pairing of wine and literature was a natural fit.

“After hearing Jessica’s story and enthusiasm, I had proposed that we have her match up a couple of my wines with books and put some packages together,” he said. “Then we decided to add in another Texan by featuring Lindsay and her amazing talent during the art walk.”

Directed by David Gassner

The Bard’s comedy is as relevant as ever. At the center of this slapstick comedy involving two sets of identical twins separated at birth is a story of immigrants in a strange land facing expulsion and possible death at the hands of a tyrannical Duke.

Director David Gassner served for several years as the Artistic Director at Theater Schmeater, where he directed the west coast premieres of Maria/Stuart and The American Pilot, the world premiere of Mamet Schmamet!, Kvetch, and The Mandrake. Other past directing projects include Dangerous Corner, Glengarry Glen Ross (twice!), To Kill a Mockingbird, Breaking the Code, Our Town, and two weekends with 14/48. As an actor, he’s appeared locally with Seattle Shakespeare Company/Wooden O, Seattle Public Theater, 14/48, Seattle Fringe Festival, and Theater Schmeater.

GreenStage, Seattle’s Shakespeare in the Park Company, will offer four plays this summer during its 29th year of performing free Shakespeare in Seattle-area parks. The calendar includes full-cast versions of Richard II, directed by Susannah Rose Woods, and of The Comedy of Errors, directed by David Gassner.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jul 21 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Camp Philosophy
This is the 3rd year of the Soccer Skills Camp. Modelled after our long-standing basketball skills camp, now in its 18th year, the philosophy of the camp is to provide a positive and fun learning experience to youth by exposing them to the fundamentals of soccer and life, including the values and qualities that we feel are necessary to be successful in these arenas.

The camp will focus on three pillars, 1) skill development, 2) teamwork and leadership, and 3) life values and traits. We at Chief Sealth feel that in order to truly be successful student-athletes we must work equally in all three areas.

About Us
The camp will be directed by long-time boys and girls Head Soccer Coach, Ron Johnson. Johnson, who was named Metro Sound Boys Coach of the Year in both 2012 and 2013, has been the Seahawks head coach for 20 seasons. He has taken the boys on to the WIAA 3A Metro and State tournament multiple times. On the girls side, he has been the head coach since the program began and has built the program into a league contender, as the 2013 girls team finished 3rd in the Metro Sound League.

Coaching
The camp will be led by both current and past members of the Chief Sealth boys and girls soccer teams. They will provide coaching by exposing campers to the fundamental skills of the game through proven coaching methods. Our camp does not guarantee success as a player, but it will expose campers to the ingredients necessary to becoming a skilled player and successful high school student-athlete.

Accommodations
Each camper will receive a camp t-shirt. Campers must provide their own lunch. It is recommended that each camper bring his/her own water bottle, as water stations will be available for fill-up. Campers should also dress appropriately and consider sunscreen as we will be outside the entirety of the camp. The camp is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

It is requested that campers NOT bring their own soccer ball.

Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”
