For those that have requested cooler water, Lucky has heard and responded.  Today he has thrown not one, but two glasses of ice in the lake. 
Based on science, if you believe in that sort of thing, we expect some cooling of the lake for his efforts sometime late October. Thank you Lucky!

Need a sneak preview of what’s happening at this year’s Golden Mile® and 25th Anniversary of Lucky’s Lake Swim CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO

Digger the Dog and Ron’s best buddy has now taken his last swim to doggie heaven. Digger is the only dog in the 1000K club (this is by Ron’s count) and the only dog on the wall of fame. Digger was 17 years old which is 119 dog years. We attribute his longevity to swimming the lake and not eating what Ron eats. Digger, you will be missed by all your fellow lake swimmers. 

In honor of Digger we have re-released the short film Digger VS the underwater monster.

17 days until the Golden Mile® – We say goodbye to Audrey and more…

Doc Lucky’s Golden Mile® is only 17 days away!  Saturday May 25th. (no regular lake swim that day) If you have not registered yet, now is the time.  The water temperature is now in the high 70s, low 80s perfect for an open water swim.
Not saying you are a loser for not participating, however if you will take a few moments to watch  the video below you will feel like a loser for not swimming this historic event.
Not only is it the 5th annual Golden Mile®, but it is also the 35th anniversary of Lucky’s Lake Swim, that means extra swag!   Sign up here for the Golden Mile®

Rowdy Gaines 3x Olympic Gold Medalist and NBC sportscaster has confirmed he will once again be our official starter for the event.

This is what you will be missing if you don’t show up for the 2024 Golden Mile®  Watch the video here 

We say goodbye to Audrey. There will be a celebration of Life in her honor Saturday May 10th at 9:30AM after the lake swim in Jacquie and Lucky’s backyard . Please bring chairs and blankets to sit on.

At Doc Lucky’s Golden Mile® we will also be celebrating the 35th anniversary of Lucky’s Lake Swim. We have a special patch for all those who attend and swim.

Sign up here for the Golden Mile®

This happens at other open water swims, but never at the Golden Mile® That’s why you should sign up for the Golden Mile® and forget about the other swims. Just kidding, never say never. Folks it’s about bragging rights, and everybody north of Florida thinks this is what happens anytime you swim in a lake in Florida.

Too lazy to click on the sign up links, well, scan the QR code, and it will take you there, easy peasy

Photoshoot tomorrow at lake swim, upcoming events

Tomorrow, Saturday, the 23rd, folks from the 111 Things to Do book series will take photos at the Lake Swim. This is your chance for your 15 seconds of Fame.
The water temperature is 72.5, which is the same temperature we have in Florida Springs year round. Swimming at Lucky’s Lake will be the same this weekend as swimming in a spring. Plus, we have 10 feet of visibility, which is so much better than the 90 feet of visibility in springs, because who wants to really see what they’re swimming with?

Happy New Year from Lucky’s Lake Swim – Big Events for 2024 put them on your schedule now!

Welcome 2024. Its off to a cold start with the lake temp coming in at 62 degrees this AM. That did not stop the psycho freaks that did the swim this morning. Apparently not everyone got the message that this was a mandatory swim.

We are now back to our old swimming schedule of 6:30 AM Mon-Fri and 7:45

AM on Saturdays. 

Here are some RED LETTER days for your 2024 calendar for 2024

March 31st Easter Eat-Pray-Swim (Sunrise)

June 1st The Jack Beattie Lake Swim (35th anniversary)
September (Date TBA) 3rd annual Special Olympics Swim for Inclusion
September 21 The 2nd Annual Zombie Cause Swim

Photo credit to Mi who took the picture of our New Year’s Day Lunatics. Water temp was 62 which is apparently the same as the collective IQ needed to enjoy the swim.

Mike McAlpin is getting ready for the Navy Seal Foundation Frogman Swim in Tampa. He is our only representative from Lucky’s Lake Swim this year. Luna was giving him so very valuable tips on how to survive  “don’t get in the water take the kayak “was the number one tip. You can donate to the Navy Seals Foundation HERE
