SEAPAX Events are a great way to meet other RPCVs, both recently and not-so-recently returned, to meet and share their experiences with each other. A list and description of some of our more regular events can be found below. We kindly ask that you RSVP through our website (unless otherwise stated) for all SEAPAX events which you plan to attend. This helps us to better plan for each event. Those who want to learn more about Peace Corps (Non-RPCVs) or SEAPAX are always welcome!
The FIRST Wednesday is the monthly pub quiz meet-ups. We can be found at Canterbury Ale House in Capitol Hill, taking part in the "Geeks Who Drink" quiz at 7pm and goes as late as 9pm. We have a table reserved so look for a sign as early as 6pm but we suggest getting there by 6:30pm. This is a great event for those looking to bring a non-RPCV along and not have them get bored as we end up talking about our service experiences only we find funny.
The THIRD Wednesday is our Happy Hour which travels around the city of Seattle. We try our best to get out to the different parts of the city at least once a year. We encourage suggested locations so we can get to where the RPCVs live and work. Always check the website, Facebook Page and/or newsletter for the latest location. Plan for the event to start at 5:30 but times depend on location. While RSVPs are not required to attend any of these events, head counts help us reserve a space big enough.
Eats Out Dinner
Our Eats Out dinners are quarterly and give us an opportunity to taste Seattle. Restaurants are chosen throughout Seattle neighborhoods that serve food typically found in countries where many RPCVs have served.
Once a year we host a summer picnic at one of Seattle’s great public parks. This is a very popular SEAPAX event and typically occurs sometime between June and August.
Two summer camp-outs are planned each year: one is a regional camp-out that includes RPCV groups from Idaho, Oregon and Washington. The second is a SEAPAX camp-out. Both are usually held in late summer.
We host an annual holiday party, which is usually our most well-attended yearly event. This is a potluck event that typically occurs at the beginning of December.
