SEA-PAC 2017 Special Events

Portable Stations at the Beach

Friday, 2 June


The beach west of the Shilo

For those of you in Seaside Friday evening, we invite you down to the beach west of the Shilo.  Some hams will have portable stations set up including a 160 meter antenna suspended from a sled kite.  If you have a portable station, bring it along and test the salt water amplifier effect.  Meet other hams and families, and enjoy the sunset.  We will save some sand for you.


An evening with Lewis & Clark

Saturday, 3 June

6:30 - 8:00 PM

Seaside High School, 1901 N. Holladay Dr, Seaside, OR 97138

Are you in Seaside Saturday evening and not planning to attend the SEA-PAC Banquet?  We invite you and your family to attend a talk on Lewis and Clark while at the north Oregon coast area.  The Corps of Discovery stayed in the area from December 1805 to February 1806 before they headed back east.  Why did Lewis and Clark choose the area?  What did they do at the north coast?  What were conditions like for the Corps?  How much salt did the Corps boil from seawater?  Learn some American history in a fun presentation that brings history alive.

The program will be at Seaside High School from 6:30 - 8:00 PM Saturday evening.  The school is north of the Convention Center at 1901 North Holladay Drive (you can see the school west of US 101).  Park on the east side of the school and enter the school.  The program will be in the cafeteria.  Seating limited to 250.  There is no charge for this event.
