Sad news, one of our regular swimmers has passed. Mark Larson nicknamed “Quiet Man” by his fellow swimmers was a staple of Lucky’s Lake Swim. Mark told Lucky that he loved the swim just to be swimming with nature early in the morning. He saw many a sunrise on lake cane. Mark passed on April 16th after a brief fight with pancreatic cancer. Quiet Man you will be missed. R.I.P.
On a happier note, the 2nd and last annual Pool Toy Float Parade is coming up. Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 26th. (Next year we are planning to host our first official open water swimming race in place of this event). We use the float parade as a fundraiser for the Lake Cane Restoration Society. There will be food for everyone and awards for Best Float, Most Orginal Float, Best Themed Float, Most Awesome Float and the Pool Toy Float Parade Queen. Prizes for the winning floats will be a float (how appropriate) Specifically your own personal swim buoy by New Wave. The Float parade Queen will be selected at random from the crowd and oddly attired individuals will have higher consideration. No entry fee just show up with your float. This year we will let you have someone ride on the float that you are towing. Riders must wear a life vest if they are not a Lucky’s Lake swimmer. You must provide your own life vest and figure out how you are going to tow the float on your own. The parade will be to the first buoy and back but you can do the entire 1K circuit if you desire.
Official Lucky’s Lake Swim gear is now available for purchase. This is for only swimmers that want to look really cool and trendy. Please check out the link. You must have completed the swim to buy the official gear. Lucky’s Lake Swim Gear
