Shooting the Curl

Next Swims:  Thursday and Friday Sept 1st & 2nd 6AM

I can't make a 6PM swim tonight (Wed).  If interested in swimming tonight leave a comment so others know they will not be alone.

A note about conditions:  3 foot waves this morning, with even bigger waves in the forecast for the next couple days.  Also, there are pockets of very cold (low 50s?) and very warm (mid 60s?).

Last Swims:  Wednesday Aug 31st 6AM
Water:  57 (on the beach, but pockets of warmer offshore), murky with 1-3 foot waves
Crew: Capt'n, Kahuna, Diablo, Nivens McTwist, Mr. Anonymous, Patriarch

Tue Aug 30th 6PM
Water: 60 clear with small rollers
Crew: Itch, Lorraine, Hank, Wet Taco, Patriarch

Tue Aug 30th 6AM
Water 63 calm and clear
Crew: Showgirl, Kahuna, Mr. Anonymous, Diablo, Nivens McTwist, Forger

Regarding Big Shoulders here is the list I have of Kru participants:  Itch, Mr. Anonymous, Gumdrop, 2-Ply, No-Ply, Jack Frost, Molly (Jack's friend), Kahuna, and Patriarch.  Let me know if there are others.  The next question is:  who is interested in car pooling?  I know some of you have friends and relatives in the Chicago area and will be driving down Friday evening.  But my plan is to drive down very early (5AM or earlier) Saturday morning.  I could take three others comfortably.  Is anyone else interested in riding or driving?

Today's waves gave us the opportunity to shoot the curl.

Will be there at 6pm. Hoping the greenery is getting sucked back out today - swamp thing in the shower last night.
