Calling all PokéPups! Tired of playing Pokémon go alone on short walks to the bus stop? Want to hang out with others in a covid safe setting? Want to show off your shiny Growlithe, Shadow Snubbul, or perfect IV Riolu? Let’s get together and have a pup Pokémon go outing!
Join other pups for raid battles, taking over gyms, and catching Pokémon!
You do not need to play Pokémon Go to join us. There will be folks willing to give pointers and advise on how to play. Extra battery packs are a good idea to bring. Event is 18+. Please bring a face mask just in case. Pup gear is not required since this is a very public setting.

Policies and Procedures Committee
There were a great many advisory votes made during the AGM in January and with the results in mind, the Board will be working on updating the policies and procedures of SEA-PAH. This will include proposing updates to the bylaws, codifying the standing rules, and other tasks related to the day to day operations of the organization. Why should you care, you're asking? Because:
WE WANT YOU! That's right! We want members of the organization to come together with us and advise, help draft, and fine tune the language that will be submitted to the community for updates to our systems. If you're interested in joining this committee, we ask that you email: email@example.com and we will be in touch to schedule. The first meeting of the Policies and Procedures Committee will take place in March, keep your ears perked in next month's HOWL for dates!
