Labor Day swim (Monday) will be at 7:45. We have some cool stuff planned. All swimmers will receive a very awesome Lucky’s Lake Swim Bracelet that changes color if you are getting too much sun (no grandfathering in you must swim to get the SWAG). So if the bracelet turns purple you should have sunscreen on. If you don’t, Lucky is okay with that as he still has kids to put through college. We will also be honoring (whether they show up or not) our three 2000K club members (Tom, Mi, and George) and they will be presented with their cubby holes in the swim shack along with all the pomp and circumstance that goes along with that high honor. Lucky will also explain the new release of the Lucky’s Lake Swim R values, which is a ranking system based on all of your personal Lucky’s Lake Swim Accomplishments (a goal oriented athlete’s perpetual nightmare), Steven Block will also be hitting his 100th crossing on that day as well.
The bad news is that King Cobras do swim. The good news is that the King Cobra is not the most poisonous snake in the world. Unfortunately the King Cobra that escaped down the road a bit is the most poisonous snake in Orange County. Thankfully, if you are the 21st person bit by this cobra on the same day you are extremely lucky as the bite of a King Cobra has only enough venom to kill 20 men.
The Lake Cane Restoration Society will be having a board meeting on Thursday Sept 11th. If you are interested in serving on the board contact Jay Madigan. The Lake Cane Restoration Society would also request that you vote for Jim Thomas for the Cox Conserves Heroes Program.
