Another sign that spring is coming, and we will soon be back in the Lake: registration for Big Shoulders Chicago Open Water Swim Race opens on March 1st, at 10:00 a.m. This year's race will be held on Sept. 9, 2017. Last year approximately ten members of the Kru did the race. If you want to do the race, be sure to put a reminder on your calendar, as registration can close quickly (I think like within an hour of opening). Cost is $80, and the event is quite a picturesque, given the race's downtown location. If you can't (like me) do a race on Sept. 9th due to other commitments, you may want to consider another race that some Kru members do, the Great Lake Plunge, in Evanston, Illinois, on July 30th. Registration for that event is now open.
