I met up with Josh, and Goody on the first day of the winter swimming season out at the Great Salt Lake Marina. It's also the first day of the official club status of Salt Lake Open Water(SLOW), a United States Masters club. The Wasatch Front Polar Bear Club is really just SLOW during the winter. We require all of those who swim to be registered with United States Masters. As of today (only two days into the 2013 season), we already have 8 members. That's awesome!
|I took some pics of Goody. This dude is bound and determined|
to earn his way into the Ice Swimming Association. I'll be
there with a towel and cup of hot chocolate at the
boat ramp for him. My money is that he makes it.
I have discussed a race with Dave Shearer, the Harbormaster for the Great Salt Lake Marina, and have started the paperwork for doing an event on New Years Day. Once it gets completely approved we'll really start to promote it. We've already got some good safety coverage planned, and the logistics should make it extremely safe even though the average Snuggie loving ignoramus would argue otherwise.
After about 20 minutes Josh and I got out and I had to get home for a nice date night with Cathi. Looking forward to next week! Also, the South Davis Masters Swim Meet is next weekend. I'm in charge of that so it's gonna be crazy busy.
