So as you might recall, we recently got Finis on board as a sponsor for LOST swimming… they gave us a very generous 50% off for 3 months of the year and 25% for the rest.  Problem was… you get killed on the duty!

I ordered a bunch of things, as did a few other LOSTies, and when the duty was included, it didn’t make it worth it.  However, Finis was good enough to point us in the direction of a supplier that carried their products… Team Aquatic Supplies! (TAS).

Our family has been going to TAS for years as our kids swim with OAK and all OAK families get a 25% discount… but that doesn’t do anything for the LOSTies!  So I spoke with Patty at TAS and she got LOST on the approved list of teams to recieve the 25% discount… not just on Finis products, but everything in the store!  Even better!

All you need to do is mention to the good people at Team Aquatics that you are a member of LOST and they will give you a “Shark Card” that gives you 25% off!  (It isn’t valid for on-line orders.)  By the way… I’ll have 2012 registration for LOST open shortly, I’m just waiting for MSO to sanction our races, so you can pay for your LOST membership and any races at the same time.

Team Aquatic Supplies is the largest aquatic supplier in Canada and has 7 locations across the country and carries pretty much anything and everything swimming related! 

Just click on their logo to the right and it will take you to their website.  I’ve included their Burlington address there too.

Next articleThat’s right… I went to Harvard…
I founded LOST Swimming because I like open water swimming and would like to see it grow and thrive in Lake Ontario. I started as a competitive swimmer as a kid and ended up getting as far as a silver medal at Nationals and going to the Olympic Trials in 1988. But I retired after that, I was sick of swimming. So I got into running marathons and have run over 35 to date, as well as a few ultra marathons, including the Marathon des Sables (7 day, ultra across the Sahara Desert). I also kind of fell into triathlons and have done a handful of Ironman tri's too. This gradually got me back in the water and in 2006 I took the plunge and attempted swimming the English Channel. I didn't quite make it across, but the circle was now complete and after 17 years I was a swimmer again! Although I still do plenty of pool swimming, I now much prefer open water swimming and like to say that open water swimming is to pool swimming, what trail running is to treadmill running! As a result I hope to encourage more people to join me for a dip in Lake Ontario as often as we can!
