This weekend is going to be overcast with a chance of rain and not much is going on here in Wallingford. The big name events in this penultimate weekend of Seafair are the Capitol Hill Block Party and the Torchlight Parade.
So here’s a grab bag of stuff to do. First, go get a free LED light bulb. Also, if you get a Chinook Book you can get a free shower head plus a free home energy assessment, which normally costs $150 through Puget Sound Energy, so not a bad deal.
Next, the folks who organize soccer for teenagers at Lower Woodland Park are looking for a few more participants this fall. Most of the parks levy money for Wallingford has gone to lighting and ball field upgrades at Lower Woodland Park, so take advantage! A bit more info from Helene:
WSC is a part of the larger city-wide Seattle Youth Soccer Association and is a recreational club. No try outs, everyone plays. Games begin in September just after the school year begins and go for approximately 3 months. Teams may also opt to participate in a City tournament at the end of the season. Teams practice 1-2 times a week with games on the weekend.
We currently have openings for the following age divisions:
Boys U-12, U-14, U-15, U-16 and U-19
Girls U-11, U-12, U-14
Too old? Then you qualify for the charmingly non-restrictive Underdog Sports League, which has a lot of stuff at Lower Woodland Park, including Kickball, Bocce, and Softball. Here’s the registration info. Also, Seattle Parks is offering coed softball at Lower Woodland Park beginning August 11th. Just go ahead and navigate through SPARC to register.
Finally, interested in the Campus Master Plan for UW? Carl Slater, Wallingford Community Council President, and Sally Clark, erstwhile of the Seattle City Council, would like to chat with you if you are.
The WCC needs a representative to work with the university on their master planning. Meetings are the second Tuesday of every month in the UW Tower (free snacks, plus the view is amazing). The meetings are grounded in the long-standing City/University Agreement pertaining to UW’s physical development. If you’re interested, start by contacting Carl.
