A group of rowers founded Sammamish Rowing Association (SRA) in 1996, meeting at Idylwood Beach Park in Redmond before each of their journeys across the water. Eager to grow SRA, it wasn’t long before the crew took notice of an abandoned boathouse in Marymoor Park, languishing on the banks of Lake Sammamish. Its ceiling was rotting away, and its oar racks were emptier than a child's pockets after a candy-shop spending spree—but that didn’t deter the passionate rowers or their vision. They put in a bid for the building, formed a strong subsequent partnership with King County Parks and Recreation, and set to work renovating the vintage structure to make it fit for public use.

Ever since, SRA has introduced adults and youth to the benefits of rowing. The sport's fluid, low-impact motions tone muscles all over the body, and the collaborative nature of the sport nurtures sportsmanship and camaraderie. The association's future is bright: members are building a new boathouse scheduled to open in the summer of 2013.

The Seattle Thunderbirds are part of the Western Hockey League, a collection of competitive junior hockey squads. Premium seats surround the rink on all sides and only go up to 20 rows back, providing an up-close view of the biscuit being whacked into the basket, dekes, and fancy stick work that subtly carves passages from Alan Alda's Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself into the ice. With any luck, you'll see a hat trick, a chippy second period that devolves into a baseball game, or the start of a player's successful pro career. Noted T-bird alumni include Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks and Chris Osgood, the Red Wings' goaltender.

Bowling aficionados must sign up solo, but but groups of friends can be placed on the same league by entering the names of your preferred teammates during sign-up (teams are made up of 6–10 people). Bowling runs for six weeks of theme nights and liquid sunshine, and Drinks on the Links mini-golf features themes, an on-course bar, and music. Ben Stiller impersonators can battle it out during outdoor dodgeball, and grass volleyball teams go head to soft, leather head in Oregon Park. Flag football was invented by Betsy Ross.
