Sports, meetings, more for your West Seattle Wednesday

(Spotted Towhee, photographed by Jerry Simmons)

Reminders for the rest of today/tonight, mostly from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

SPORTS: Two softball games at Nino Cantu Southwest Athletic Complex (2801 SW Thistle) – first at 3:30 pm, Chief Sealth IHS hosts Holy Names, and then at 4 pm, West Seattle HS hosts Auburn .. At 4 pm at Walt Hundley Playfield (34th/Myrtle), Chief Sealth IHS and West Seattle HS meet for a soccer match … at 7 pm at NCSWAC, Chief Sealth hosts Roosevelt for a baseball game

SCHOOL SCHEDULE CHANGES? The proposal to go back to a three-tiered schedule at Seattle Public Schools (previously reported here) was on the School Board’s agenda for introduction at today’s meeting, which starts at 4:15 pm, but we just noticed that it’s been removed. We’re following up with the district, but in the meantime, the public-comment period includes some speakers planning to address it. Here’s the agenda; here’s how to watch (or be there in person at SPS HQ, 3rd/Lander in SODO).

FAUNTLEROY DOCK-REPLACEMENT PROJECT: The Community Advisory Group for the Fauntleroy dock/terminal replacement project meets online at 6 pm. No public-comment period, but all are welcome to watch/listen – register here.

DISTRICT 1 COMMUNITY NETWORK: This coalition of West Seattle/South Park community advocates meets online at 7 pm. All are welcome; the agenda has information on how to attend.

SKYLARK OPEN MIC: 7:30 pm signups @ West Seattle’s longest-running open mic – no cover to watch. (3803 Delridge Way SW) (See comment below)

TRIVIA x 2: Larry’s Tavern (3405 California SW) hosts Wednesday-night trivia starting at 8 pm; at 8:30 pm, trivia is back at Talarico’s (4718 California SW) with Phil T.

Have something for our calendar? Email info to – thank you!

    FYI, The Board took the Transportation/bell times item OFF of tonight’s Board meeting agenda. No explanation why but I suspect it is probably because of late notice to parents/lack of public engagement with parents over an item that affects every single family in the district.

      That’s what I said above, sorry if it’s not clear, after discovering the removal while checking the agenda before publishing this – I have an inquiry out with their media person as to rescheduling. – TR

    Heard via Facebook that Skylark is closed until tomorrow due to an “immeasurable loss to the Skylark family.” Our hearts go out to them. They will be back in action for Thursday and Friday’s double dose of Battlestar Kalakala Funk, Soul, and Afrobeat for two nights of live recording.

      Oh no. There’s nothing on their website and the mention above is a standing listing so we hadn’t heard this – thank you. (added) Via Instagram:

    One other sports reminder- the Sounders are in the CONCACAF (essentially central- N America continental club championship) tonight at 7pm at Lumen. 67k seats sold, expect some traffic starting early.

      Thanks, I am trying to get back in the habit of checking the stadium/team sites for events to mention in the morning traffic watch …
