April 2023 HOWL
(For real this time)
As the new board gets ready to initiate plans formed during their annual retreat, we still want to hear from our members!
This quick survey should only take about 5-10 minutes but will be very helpful! It will allow us to hear from the membership and prioritize goals for the upcoming year based on your feedback.
One Love, One Pack~
The 2023 Board of Directors
To all SEA-PAH Barkroom members
Per a vote made in the 2023 AGM, the Barkroom is now under ownership of members and no longer owned by SEA-PAH. This decision was made with intent to allow the community to have more direct control over the chat. Additionally, this allows the chat to have more freedom outside of SEA-PAH's policies.
On Saturday, March 25th, the "SEA-PAH Official Barkroom" was renamed to “The Emerald City Barkroom”. Current chat members do not need to do anything besides be aware of the name/icon changes. At this time, current chat rules will remain in place during transition. Chat rules are subject to change after transition and community member input.
Currently, the administrative team includes Baus Yukon (@bausyukon), Edgar Allan "Eddie" Pup (@Edgarallanpup), Hunter ColorPunk (@HunterCub_ColorPunk), and Rosco Goat (@RoscoGoat). The SEA-PAH Barkroom's former moderators will continue to operate as current moderators as well (outside of those choosing to leave the role in light of the ownership change). However, we strongly encourage other community members to join the moderation team! If interested, please fill out the attached form: https://forms.gle/cR5TdNmjftV4HEU17
This month before our mosh we’re bringing back our most requested LEEP class, it’s Puppy 101!!! Join pups Spike & Flash as they go over the basics of puppy play. The G rated stuff anyway. This is a perfect opportunity for new members and those intrigued by it to learn more about pup play. The class can only hold a maximum of 20 students, so it’s first come first serve.
SEA-PAH’s having a birthday! And you're invited!!
This month SEA-PAH turns 11 years old (77 in dog years), and we’re celebrating at our April mosh! We’re talking birthday party games, pupcakes, and a drunk GamGam spilling the family secrets! Can’t wait to see y’all there!!
At the Best in Show Event this past November, the Board of Directors announced the RETURN of SEA-PAH's most popular and dearly missed events: CAMP K9! We have secured a new venue at Elkamp, a private campground that granted us the use of their entire space with plenty of room to host the pup community! We are calling for volunteers, event planners, and folks who want to attend! Come join us and help make this event the best it can be!
We are also very excited to bring back the yearly raffle at Camp K9. We want to hear from you about what sponsors you would like to see at Camp. Maybe you do some craft project or know someone else who does projects that would like to donate a few items to the raffle. We are looking forward to hearing from you. If you have suggestions, please email email@example.com
If you want to camp in style we’re raffling off an RV Site & Cabin! Follow the link to get your raffle tickets before time runs out!! Drawing is April 8th, at the end of our Mosh.
The Camp K9 Planning Telegram Committee and Chat has been busy working to make sure this trip is unforgettable! If you have an interest in joining the committee as we plan this amazing event, please click the link below!
The chat will be used to coordinate our meeting times, have open and organic discussion, idea generation, and much more!

Anyone else smell wet dog? Join us 5pm-8pm May 13 at the Medgar Evers Pool! We're taking it over, so feel free to bring your pool toys and neoprene! The pool party is happening after our mosh and is about a 25 minute walk from the Cuff Complex. While the event starts at 5pm you're free to check in with us any time before the event closes. Tickets are limited so get yours before they’re gone!
We'll need three volunteers who will work one hour each to help run check-in. If you're interested please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
Tickets are $15 for members, $25 for non members
Remember: While we do have the entire pool to ourselves, swimsuits are still required.
Tote-ally Cute New Merch!
SEA-PAH is proud to announce our new official Camp K9 Tote bag! Brought to us by Misty Mountain Manufacturing, the parent company of Jensen Lee, the maker of our officially licensed Gear Bags.
This bag is tote-ally perfect for all the camping essentials such as sunscreen, water bottles and even snacks! Proceeds from this bag go towards funding the events and organization efforts of Camp K9 2023.
Bag dimensions are 14"x13"x3".
