This is a good time to make you aware of some upcoming swim events.
Tonight is the third of five aquathons at Lannon Quarry:
On August 13th there is a Lake swim on the "other side":
I'm thinking of taking the Lake Express Ferry over to Muskegon on Friday night, bike to Holland (25-30 miles on back roads along the lake), get a motel. On Saturday do the swim and return, or stay a day and bike/swim along the lake. If anyone is interested, let me know.
August 21st is the Pirate's Plunge (we did this last year, it was great):
September 10th is Big Shoulders in Chicago. The premier Lake Michigan swim event.
Also we are trying to arrange two informal events, a cookout at my house, and a swim party at Steve's (he lives on the lake north of Klode). Stay tuned.
