The Great Lake Plunge is now rescheduled for next Saturday August 6th.  Several people have asked me whether they would reopen registration so that people not originally signed up could now participate.  The short answer is "no".  The explanation is in an email they sent me:   Unfortunately we’re extremely busy with the reschedule and we just can’t handle the workload of opening up registration again. We also already have our shirts ordered and medals made so we don’t have capacity for more swimmers.
