LOSTIE NEWS

The First Rule of Fight Club is: “there is no Beer Mile”!

Well it was the right day to shut'er down!  The lake rolled over... and it was 7C/45F!  It was great to have such a big turn out this late in the season.  41 LOSTies still got in and did a 1 buoy swim!  We were almost down to Ice Mile temperatures! Looks like we've ended season how we started it... on a bit of chilly note!  The big difference is that it isn't getting warmer, unlike when we started the season. Having said that, the Lake rolled over on Sunday... and was back up to 68F!  Crazy Lake.  In fact, the...

This is it… get out there for the LAST LOST Swim of 2019!

As I've been saying, all swims in September are bonus swims.  We usually, but not always, make it to mid-September.  Sometimes the weather craps out on us, sometimes the lake rolls over and it is a quick end to the season.  But usually it is a bit of everything, the weather gets cool, the lake gets cool and interest wanes. This year the weather has still been really nice.  The Lake hasn't really cooled off yet.  As I said all summer, this is a big lake and takes a long time to warm up, but also takes a long time...

The weather tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful with a high of 31C (feels like)!  But as we all know, that has nothing to do with water temperature.  But incredibly the water temp is supposed to be over 70F/20C tomorrow! Last week we had a malware attack that shut down our mailchimp distribution, so I wasn't able to send out an email saying that LOST Swimming was still on.  So I was quite surprised when I got there and we still had a great turnout... I figured people would be winding it down.  The season usually...

Still some great swimming left!… LOTW: Janice

Hey all, don't give out on me now... there is still a few weeks of great swimming left! Don't ask me when the season ends... it ends when it just kinda fizzles out.  I mean, some of our hardy (crazy) LOSTies go all year round... yes, through the winter even, but one we get down to just a handful, we shut'er down. Typically the "official" end to the LOST season is mid to late September. Having said that though... some of the best swims are from now until then.  The reason is: the air temp is still very nice... and the crazy...
