Help needed to continue skills days
In short we need a new parking lot. We have been using the Aquasox lot for years with their permission, but it turns out that they only lease it from the school district.

We spoke to the school district about using the lot but it would cost a load of money that we would then have to charge participants.

We like that these are free, so in the interest of keeping them that way I'm asking for suggestions for new parking lots in the Everett or Lynnwood areas. They must be large, paved, and clean.

Totem lake mall. Half of it is never used anyway.

Generally speaking we can't use retail lots even when the stores are closed. They normally require event insurance which means we would have to charge riders to recoup that money.

What about the overflow parking lot ad either Edmonds Comm. Coll. or Everett Comm. Coll??

Also there is a HUGE open parking lot on Broadway in north Everett, right across from the new "Nursing Sciences" building being built. It's a huge lot, and is almost always empty.

Would either of those ideas work?

What about a church parking lot? I unfortunately don't have one in particular to recommend, as I'm banned from all Catholic, Protestant, and Lutheran churches in the country...

Don't ask.

Seems like it would be worth a shot at the very least.

Might not be a bad idea to get hold of Chris Johnson (WMST). He was keen to collaborate before. A lot in exchange for testing his material? Win, win.

The parking lot here, North of the 40-84 building, is where they do the MSF courses. Not sure who to contact at Boeing to find out about using it on off weekends. I'll check around, but you might have better luck calling MSF and asking them about making arrangements?

How about on 99 between 168 and 172 where the home base used to be a long time ago.

Kind of along the lines I was thinking...

St. Thomas More
6511 176th St SW Lynnwood

Very large and clean parking lot.

These are all very helpful. Thanks a ton.

We've been running them on Sunday mornings, which pretty much rules out churches. I think I may lobby to change that, though. It seems like churches would be the most likely to go along with our plans.

Schools will likely have more stringent organizational requirements than we're looking to fulfill, but I'll send someone out to check them out just in case.


As for WMST, we need to look that guy up again. I missed a few skills days this year, but to the best of my knowledge he didn't drop by. I was really looking forward to tooling around on his 250 racebike.

I checked out my previous post area (99 between 168th and 172nd) unfortunately it won't work any longer. However I did go past a lot that looked interesting, on 40th just north of 196th st in Lynnwood. Maybe someone else here may know more about it?

Online shoes moved. They had a huge parking lot. I took a couple people there for hooligan activities. Check that spot out.

There's some industrial lots near Boeing, by the Campbells soup place. I know one of them let stunters use it anytime they want outside of business hours, I'd have to sit down and look at a map to find it for ya but it's a pretty good size.

Let me know if you want me to get the info for ya.
