Labor Day Weekend Swim Plans Announced

Next Swims:
   Saturday September 3rd - 10am (Klode to Big Swim?)
   Sunday September 4th - Noon
   Monday September 5th - Noon

Last Swim:
   Friday September 2nd - 6am
      Water Temp:  64.4
      Waves: 1-2ft (2-3 seconds apart) / Choppy
      Clarity:  Poor
      Crew:  The Patriarch, Diablo, Showgirl, Itch, Kahuna, Sonakahuna, Capt'n

With Big Shoulders 1 week from Saturday and Ironman Wisconsin 1 week from Sunday the goal this weekend it to log a Klode to Big Bay (and back) swim.  Distance from Klode to the Big Bay pier is 1.2 miles (...for those who swim straight that is...).  Water/wave conditions are forecasted to subside today so Saturday's earlier swim start time should be the most favorable for our Klode to Big Bay swim adventure.  Of course nobody, not even The Patriarch, can forecast the water conditions/temp so the actual day we attempt our swim adventure may vary.  (Consult your local Crystal Ball for additional swim condition forecasts.)

Any early birds who'd like to take advantage of another swim in addition to big bay can join me, tomorrow morning, September 3rd, for a 5am swim. Swimming in the early hours of morning is quite peaceful. I recommend clear goggles, as it is still dark at 5. Look for the Missouri plates on a white Chevy cruise.

Anyone planning to drive back from Big Bay, that I could hitch a ride with? Or I could hitch from Big Bay?

Matriarch will provide shuttle service for one way swimmers (like me!). Ain't she something?

Showgirl said...

Anyone want to swim this afternoon, anytime from now, 1pm to 5ish ? The sooner the better. Call or text me, 414.331.8498.

On Monday I'll be looking for a 6pm swim (maybe earlier?) if anyone is interested.

So is it definitely 1200 today and not 10?

Lorraine said...

It's noon today.

I'm doing another 5am swim tomorrow morning, Labor Day, for anyone interested in joining! :)

I haven't been swimming with the group yet, but would be interested in 5am swim with you. Start at klode? What is plan, how far, etc. I would like to connect with this group to do some swimmi in Lake Michigan!

Linda the Lamprey said...

Yes, 5am start at Klode. Swim about 45min to an hour, but I can swim longer if you are interested. I'm going to go by time instead of distance. If you prefer a shorter or longer swim, I'm sure doing the group swim at 12pm will provide you with a wider range of distances/durations. I'll be in the parking lot right at 5am, and will walk down to the beach no later than 5:10am.
