One more swimmer to go until we reach 1000 on the plank counter!! If all goes according to plan we should set this historic mark with this evening's 5:30pm swim. Perhaps we'll go out and celebrate with a little pizza following today's PM swim? (If interested, please comment) At the very least well have some Pitsch on hand to toast the accomplishment.

Speaking of accomplishment's...Diablo and Flipper displayed their true grit this morning swimming skin in 55-57 degree water and a crisp cool air temp of 49. As Bubba put it... "Diablo and Flipper are classic swimmers...reminiscent of when men were made of steel and boats were made of wood."

Speaking of skin swims...there's a little debate on what should qualify as an official "skin swim". Currently I've been measuring it by whether or not there are at least two swimmers going skin. Yesterday Diablo and I swam skin and on Saturday Diablo was the only brave soul to swim skin. As a result our plank counter has risen 2 over the last 3 swims up to 91 for the season. Be on the look out for a survey on the topic.

Did someone say pizza? Matriarch and I will be there.

More important question: among the people who show up tonight who exactly will we count as the 1000th swimmer? I nominate myself. You can all pitch in and buy me a big expensive prize.
