You only have 12 days until the Golden Mile®, so if you haven’t registered yet, get a cracking. The Golden Mile® is the only fundraiser for the Lake Cane Restoration Society (LCRS), a 501c3 charitable organization. All the proceeds from the Golden Mile go to LCRS, not to the Lucky Meisenheimer vacation fund as previously requested by Lucky. Register for the Golden Mile Click Here

Want to help out but can’t swim on the 29th? We have several great options.

1.Register but swim on Friday the 28th at 6 pm in our virtual Golden Mile. You get all the Swag, T-shirt, and survivor medallion, and you can wear fins, snorkels, pull buoys, wetsuits, etc., unlike in the official race. You are not eligible for medals, and there will be no timing.

2.Volunteer, we need lots of volunteers; please see our sign-up form.

3.Register and give your slot away to one of our Cognitive Disabled Athletes.

4.Register and donate your entry to the LCRS. We will give you the swag bag and T-shirt, but you can’t get the survivor medallion unless you swim or make a substantial bribe.


Many thanks to the Scotty Foundation for their generous donation of $5000 to LCRS/The Golden Mile®. Shown are Scotty and some hooligans who are photobombing what should have been a nice photo op. For more about the Golden Mile® Click Here

Congratulations to Jay Madigan for being selected Steak on the lake person of the year. Jay is shown here with his award, a tomahawk steak. He did eat it in one sitting, which is probably some record. We know that his LDL cholesterol level topped 1000 is a personal record for Jay and will eventually turn into some car payments for his future cardiac surgeon.

We are back to our pre-covid routine at Lucky’s Lake Swim. Masks are no longer required, and we are back to mass starts 6:30 am Monday thru Friday and 7:45 am on Saturdays. The lake was packed on Saturday, with swimmers getting ready for the Golden Mile®. Make sure you register today.

We have thousands of dollars worth of silent auction items donated. If you or your business would like to donate items, we must have them by Friday.

In next year’s golden mile, we are happy to say that our cognitively disabled division is going to be changed to an official Special Olympics event in preparation for the Special Olympics USA Games to be held the following month in June of 2022. The 2020 USA Games will be the first time an open water swimming Special Olympics event will be contested at a USA Games, and Lucky’s Lake Swim will be the host site.

Many thanks to Brian Parramore and his superhero welding skills. Brian made another award stand for the Golden Mile®. We now have two, so the award ceremony will go much faster. Regardless of what Lucky says about Brian, he is a great guy.
