Open Water Swim at Lums Pond

It is time for open water swims at Lums pond. The swims are open to ALL Tri-Dawgs and their guests. We just have a few simple rules (laid out by the park service, and a few laid out by us) that we must adhere to.

The swims are Wednesdays 6:00-7:00 PM only. We must have a minimum of two kayakers in the water at all times with throw buoys in the kayak. We all ready have the kayaks and buoys and I will arrange to have kayakers every week. We can only swim from Area One.

Everyone must pay the entrance fees to the park every week. Yearly passes are recommended. We will have a sign in sheet that must be signed by everyone entering the water and then be signed out as you exit.

Here are a few of our own rules. If you bring a guest, please ensure that person is comfortable in open water. If they are not, either swim with them until they are or let me know and I will swim with them. We can also arrange for someone to swim with them or get a kayaker to follow them until they are comfortable. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE invest in a brightly colored swim cap to make monitoring easy for our kayakers. It is a good idea to get used to wearing a cap anyway as you will have to in races.

The first swim is May 4th. My number is 302-383-0060. Text or call with any questions, comments, concerns etc. Thanks and hope to see you all out there. GO DAWGS!!!!!---Vince
