LOST Season Opener – 2021 & info about the new PLAQUE!!!

On the up side of things... when I sent out the season opener email a year ago things were looking pretty bleak... at least now, 1 year later, things are looking better! So I'm proceeding like we will be a go for this summer.  Even if it is a late start.  Like we will be able to have outdoor gatherings of more than 10 people.  We still have about a month before LOST is supposed to start (the first Saturday in June is the 5th this year).  But who knows. I'm not going to open up registration yet though.  It's more...

LOST Swimming is Cancelled for summer 2020!

No easy way to say it.  So for the first time in 15 years... there will be no LOST Swimming on Saturday mornings this summer.  (Maybe I'll sleep in on a Saturday in the summer, for the first time in 15 years... but probably not.) I've been holding off making this decision as long as I can, and it is really disappointing, but I had to pull the plug.  Should things change over the course of the summer, then we will adjust, just like everybody these days.  But that's how it looks for now. This is what I have been able...

LOST Season Opener – update

Help fellow LOSTie fight breast cancer!

Can you help Rosy? We welcomed Rosy to LOST last year.  She was totally new to open water swimming and loved it - loved LOST! Unfortunately Rosy has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. She's had some financial difficulties, so she's going to need some help. Please read her personal message and, if you can, donate and/or share her link. Cheers, Rob. PS. In case you don't recall who Rosy is, she was the one that got a bad ear infection, but because she loved the culture of LOST so much, she kept showing up and even volunteered to kayak and help out....
