Next Swims: Sunday 8/28 noon, Monday 5:45AM
Last Swim: Saturday noon at Steve's
Water: Cold and gunky near shore, much warmer and clearer out 200 meters
Waves: 1-2 foot, big current pushing north to south
Crew (as best as I can remember, correct me if I'm wrong): Gwen!, Steve, Cap'n, Diablo, Kahuna, Crash, Patriarch, Dave, Cheryl, Eric, Eric, Matt, Kim, Jessica, James, Nick, Tony, Karen, Larry, Kimberly, Ryan, and the Amazing 12 year old Philly
Lots to celebrate today. First we congratulate Jeff and Claudia on the birth of their son Calvin. I'm sure we'll see Cal in the water soon.
Also, we toasted Gwen on her triumphant return to the states after conquering the European triathlon world and earning her spot on the US Olympic team. This was the first of many toasts hoisted on Steve's deck.
Mostly we celebrated a great day on a great lake with a great party on Steve's deck. The food was fantastic (thanks Steve's Eye Candy). And the mimosas, screwdrivers, bloodies, and of course Killepitsch flowed freely.
Records were set: numbers of swimmers in the water (22) and number of shots of Killepitsch consumed (actually we lost count - imagine that! - but we think somewhere around 36).
Thanks, Steve for hosting this fantastic party!!
