Congratulations to Mary Hayes (age 85) that just set a new record for the 85-89 women’s age group.  She was joined by her son Dan and granddaughter Marlie making three generations swimming at one time.  It has happened before but not often, much like 3 eyed fish in Lake Chernobyl.

August 17th Orange County TV will be out filming some of the neat stuff that swimmers are doing with the Lake Cane Restoration Society. No thongs that morning, that goes for you too Ron.

August 19th  Join Lucky and others swimming down Rainbow river this Sunday morning.  Gator knives are optional. Many thanks to Brian Parramore  for setting this all up.  Details are posted on the Lucky’s Lake Swim Facebook page. See Brian’s Aug 1st post and below.

September 22 Blood Mobile will be returning.  Tom will be there waving around his 9800 gallon donor card like it’s a platinum VISA and if you don’t donate he will give you “the look” which will make you feel like an invertebrate that needs to ooze it’s way back into a dark crevice. Many thanks to Swim Shack Jerry for setting this all up.

Congratulations to a Lucky’s Lake Swimming regular, Luis Ortiz who just earned a spot on the USA triathlon world team for the Junior (19u) division. He will be one of three Americans competing for the US at Worlds in this division. Not only that but he is skinny too. Some people have all the luck.

Mary Hayes Record Holder for 85-89 age group. 42:44 She didn’t know doing it all butterfly was an option so she will be back.

Jay did it! And they even hired a couple of Japanese fishermen to shoot at them when they were swimming. I don’t even think they got a patch or bumper sticker for doing the swim.
