Yes, the Easter Eat-Pray-Swim is on for tomorrow morning. The water temp should be in the low 70s, and the morning should be cool but pleasant. I perfect set up for the sunrise sermon at 7:12 by Tom Welch. We will have breakfast as well. Masks are still in vogue. We have had a ton of volunteers working on making this an excellent experience; don’t miss out!
We had about 50 swimmers today, and included in that group were some speedsters. Two records fell, including True Sweeter’s 17-18 record which was the second fastest swim in the lake. Josh Brown broke the 11:35.5 record by a mere .5 seconds making him the second fastest swimmer just behind True’s record time of 11:17.0 set when he was 22. Congratulations to Josh. Josh will be gunning for that gold medal in the Golden Mile® May 29th. Jordan Agliano also has her name on the record board twice now. She currently holds the 11-12 record for women and she just broke the 15-16 record which was held by Alix Roy (12:47) by swimming a blistering 12:43. Congratulations to Jordan.
Volunteers get last minute advice from preacher Tom on the size of pebbles to hurl at Lucky if he starts to dose during the sermon.
There will be a bonfire prior to the sermon to keep us warm and to make PEEP smores. Lucky would consider it a personal favor if everyone would eat two. We will tell you why later and please post your eating the PEEP smores on our facebook page.
The first hundred Easter swimmers will get a silicone race cap donated by Raebabes. Thanks Raebabes for the nice donation ,as well, to the Children’s Ranch.
The first Easter swimmer to arrive and make a $50 donation, which goes to the Edgewood Children’s Ranch, will get to take home this nice Easter wreath made by Audrey Carter, as well as, a Lucky’s Lake Swim apron, and a 2020 golden mile race cap. WOW!
Congratulations to some of the Lake Highland swimmers who swam today. There were two records broken Josh Brown set the 17-18 record with a time of 11:35.0 (the second fastest time ever swam at Lucky’s Lake Swim) and Jordan Agliano set the 15-16 record for women with a time of 12:43.0
