Want to Add a New EVent!       It is easy to do!       Click the [show] link to the right >>
Want to create a new EVent! First click "Current Events" at the top of any events page. Once there, just click on any of the dates in the "wiki calendar" below to begin creating a new page! Start the page with (Just copy it now and paste it when you create your page):
== Short Name for EVent ==
Your event details and description text goes here.

Next simply add whatever details and links you like to the page. Use the Show preview to see what you have created and finally click Save page and you are done. You and anyone else can edit the page later to add more details. The new EVent page you help create can grow more detailed, after the event photos can be added or accounts of how the event went. All of this will be archived for future generations to see what kind of amazing fun we have had, heck go check out some past EVent pages now (Tip: Click on any pages edit link to see how easy they are to create).

Need more advanced editing tips?                         Click the [show] link to the right >>

If there are more than one event on a given day, then make the == Header == at the top of the page include a short description of both events so that they will both appear in the summary for that day. Then create two or more === Sub Headers === (Notice the 3 = signs instead of 2) for each separate event on that day.

== First EVent & Another EVent Also ==
=== First EVent ===
First Event details and description text goes here.
===Another EVent Also===
Details for the another event also go right here.

You can also add ==== Sub Sub Headers ==== for an event if there is a lot of information for that event, perhaps someone might want to add a ==== Photos ==== section. The simplest way to add photos is to upload them to the site (you may need to ask for an account to do this). Take a look at the Photos page for a list of EVents that had photos added.

Then just list them in a gallery block.

Additional [[Category:]] tags can be added to the top of the page, we do not use many categories at the moment, but they help to organize pages and help visitors find related pages. For example there might be a Tesla Category and any event with a Tesla at it could have the Tesla category.

Alt-Fuel Vehicle Rally

Thanks to everyone who participated in Seattle Parks and Recreation's April Alternatively Fueled Vehicle Rally!

October 22nd from 9:30 am-2 pm, Seattle Parks is again hosting an Alternatively Fueled Vehicle Rally, this time, at Greenlake. We'll be using the small lot near the boat house on the South Side of the lake. There is somewhat limited parking there, so registration for the even will be important. Please take a minute to send the following information to daveb(at)

   Info We Need:          
  • Name
  • Name of Company
  • Phone #
  • email address
  • # of vehicles
  • type of vehicles

As in years past, you are welcome to bring your vehicle but cannot sell anything on-site or test drive the vehicle. You're welcome to bring literature with you and to start vehicles to demonstrate. Please email us if you have questions.

I know that this is a little early to advertise for October, but I'll be gone this summer working on a special assignment, so am trying to get a jump on it.

Thanks again for your participation!

"Seattle Parks and Recreation will work with all citizens to be good stewards of our environment, and to provide safe and welcoming opportunities to play, learn, contemplate and build community."

Green Lake’s Alternative Fuel Vehicles "Rally"

Gas prices in the state of Washington are the highest in recent history. Interested in learning about alternatives to a gas-guzzling SUV? Come to the Alternatively Fueled Vehicle Rally outside of the Green Lake Small Craft Center, Saturday, October 22nd from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will take place on the south side of Green Lake, outside of the small craft center and the golf course.

The “rally” will feature a variety of alternatively fueled vehicles from independent companies. Electric cars, bicycles, and trucks, and natural gas-fueled vehicles will be on view. Local industry representatives and City staff will be on hand to discuss the advantages to using fewer gasoline-dependent vehicles and answer questions.

Motor vehicles are the primary source of air pollution in the central Puget Sound region. About 60 percent of the region’s emissions of the greenhouse gases that accelerate global warming come from tailpipes, and about 70 percent of the toxic air pollution is from diesel emissions from trucks, buses, ships, and other sources.

The City of Seattle is a national leader in the integration of alternatively fueled vehicles into its fleet. Seattle Parks and Recreation, one of the city's largest departments, uses more than 60 "clean" cars, trucks and bikes. The alternative fuel event is part of the park’s efforts to educate the public about being responsible stewards of our natural environment.

The environmental learning center unit, which offers environmental education programs year-round, is co-sponsoring the event. For more information about participating the event, please call the Discovery Park at 206-733-9434. Vendors must be present with their vehicles. # # #
