First, let me say to those that received the strange “Test” email you all passed, but Lucky did not, because the email was to go to 2 people only, and it ended up going to 1200. So one big F+ to Lucky. Happily, our new system seems to be getting the blog out okay. If you are reading this on the website but did not receive the post by email, please check your spam folder or sign up for the blog.
Yaaay! The lake temperature is now live and updated every few minutes at LuckysLakeSwim.com. It can also be seen live at the Rosen YMCA Aquatic Center. Water temps of the pools at the Rosen YMCA can also be seen. So this means you don’t have to drive over to Lucky’s to put your toe in the lake only to turn around and leave. You can now click on the website while in bed and roll back over and go to sleep. Many thanks to Amin Ismail for his tireless efforts in making this project succeed and to Jay Madigan’s endless persistence.
Question: Can you catch a coronavirus swimming? Yes, very easily and pass them. Coronaviruses have very short stubby arms and legs and swim quite slowly. But, it is possible to get waterborne infections from some coronaviruses, we just aren’t so sure about COVID-19. No need to stop swimming the lake, yet, or switching from Coronas to Heinekens, we will keep you updated.
Golden Mile® Update
Over one quarter of all the spots are taken. Many more than this time last year. It looks like we will close out again before the registration deadline gets here. We have a race cap count total of 300. Don’t get stuck sitting on the sidelines register now. We also will be needing volunteers to help with the race.
