Happy New Year, Start times and more…

Twenty four brave souls swam into the new year today challenging cool water (67 degrees) and some wind. They were all rewarded with the opportunity to have a bit of the bubbly at the end of their swim. As we start the new year (This is Lucky’s Lake Swim silver anniversary  year – 25 yrs) nothing much has changed.  We are back to our regular swim times of 6:30am on week days and 7:45 am on Saturdays. The water has been (and hopefully will remain) unseasonably warm and still about 25% of the swimmers are without wetsuits. So no excuses for not swimming.

Of an interesting note we had 16000 views of the blog last year and Audrey made the most comments with five.

Two dozen hard-core swimmers (or very silly people - you decide) swam into the new year.

New Years Day 6 years ago 2007.  We had twice as many folks today. Lucky, Geno and Mark looks like are the only three that were at both.

New Years Day 6 years ago 2007. We had twice as many folks today. Lucky, Geno and Mark looks like are the only three that were at both.  Please note the champagne (on Lucky’s back)  is the same too!

We had a little champagne following the swim.  Some wisely chose not to partake.  This was the last remain bottle from Jacquie’s and  Lucky’s wedding reception 19 years ago. Turns out champagne doesn’t age well and it wasn’t very  good 19 years ago. You can ask George Mann about this as he was the only one at the reception and swimming today that could compare.  I believe I overheard him say today “after the 6th glass it doesn’t taste as bad."

Charlie St-Cry Paul makes the 500K club.  The last 25 meters of his swim was so fast the frictional pressure ripped his wetsuit off his upper torso.  Strong work Charile

Ron Davis set the 70-74 age group record today with a time of 39:50.  Ron is seen with his posse that accompanied him during the crossing.  It was the first time that he had done a crossing without a pull buoy. Ron also tells me that he finally earned his 200K shirt.

Holiday Swim Times and more …

Sorry that the lake heater is on the fritz . . . if you don’t like it, your only options are to start burning more fossil fuels or get a wet suit. If you choose the fossil fuel option I am hoping for Lucky’s ocean front open water swim in about 30 years.

Kathleen Fitzgerald is our most recent record breaker, setting the standard for the women’s 60-64 age group with a time of 21:32.  Most records are safe for the next couple of months due to the no wetsuit rule, but then again a crazy northerner may show up.

Jay got his 150K club cap but still hasn’t got a halo of yellow around his name because he can’t remember where he signed the wall of fame. We’ll help you look when you hit 500.

Mark Ferris came all the way from Australia to swim the lake . . . and to drink all of John Collingwood’s beer. He succeeded in both is my understanding.

Ron becomes the first Canadian to get a 150 K club cap. I hope he gets knighted for that.  I may call him Sir Ron anyway just because it sounds cool.

Snickers is FOUND!!!!

Thanks for everyone keeping an eye out for snickers.  Many thanks to Katherine Muller who thought to check on Craigs List and located her this morning  and special thanks to Justin Dean who found Snickers over in the Universal Studios employee parking lot around 9pm last night. Justin and his girlfriend took real good care of snickers and she even returned with a little pink bow in her hair.

Justin Dean found Snickers last night and took good care of her.  If you know Justin (he works over at universal studios as a rigger on the Fear Factor show) give him a high five for us.

Snickers is missing – need your help.

On Thanksgiving Day between 7 pm and 7:30 pm Snickers (aka Snickerdoodle) went AWOL from Lucky’s while we were gone. Snickers is the black labradoodle that greets everyone at the Lake swim. It is very unusual for her to wander off property.
If you happen to have seen Snickers or know of her whereabouts please give Lucky a call. We are hoping that she is wandering around the Lake Cane area. She is currently not wearing a collar.

Snickers is missing please call lucky if you see her.

On a more happier note.

A great Thanksgiving day swim with 23 of us enjoying the 69 degree water and 39 degree air temp.

Thanksgiving swim times, Digger rules, and more

Due to popular demand I am reposting the swim times for the Thanksgiving break.

Wednesday Nov 27………………..…7:45 AM
Thanksgiving Day Nov 28th …7:45 AM (If you swim this morning you can have seconds without regret later that day.)
Friday Nov 28th………………………  7:45 AM
Saturday Nov 29th ……………………7:45 AM

Congratulations to Mary Holloway new record holder in the 65-69 women’s age group with a time of 30:26  and Julio Suarez who dropped his own record in the 40-44 age group to a 14:13 ( This is the 5th fastest swim on the top ten list)

Not to late to name a carp! You can become a part of pop culture for a measly ten bucks. Check the names out here!

Digger makes it into the 500K club!  He received a new collar and an engraved dog tag for his efforts.  Strong work Digger!  Now for the folks that say they want a dog collar instead of the silver 500 K club cap the answer is NO.  If a latex cap that holds snuggly close to your skin is not enough of a turn on then I don’t think  wearing a collar will do it for you either.

Fans of digger – Kate and Paul look on and supplied cheers and applause during the long ceremony.  Now, for the folks that say they want a dog collar instead of the silver 500 K club cap, the answer is NO. We want to keep the swim caps in the water and the dog collars in the bedroom where they belong.

Congrats to Dylan Kunkel who set the 10 and under record with a time of 36:32.  All the men’s age groups now have records except for the 70-74 age group - Ron, it’s time to man up and I will not accept your verbal time of 12:57 that you remember from last week when you were doing your 200th crossing.

Don shows off our new sign. If you got it flaunt it – and it’s a pretty neat sign too.

Congrats to Duck.  He is now in the 200 K club (and he’s only 6 months old).  He wanted custom sized apparel, I got him this sign instead and he is not happy.

I tried to appease Duck since he was not happy with the award sign.  Told him I would build him a house.  He said he wanted a condo in south beach.  I got him this cute bungalow instead.  He immediately took a dump in the living room.  It’s very hard to pleas a duck as I am finding out.

A great time to play underwater hockey is this wednesday and friday at 7:15 pm at the YMCA aquatic center.  I just posted an article on UWH gear for the newbie which might be of some interest for those thinking about joining us.  No problem if you don’t have gear yet, we have loaners so come on out and play.

Holiday swim times, new records and more!

We will be swimming on T-Day!

Yes, it’s hard to believe but the Thanksgiving holiday is rapidly approaching, so here are the holiday swim times for the lake swim. Please commit these times and dates to memory. There will be a pop quiz later this week.

Wednesday Nov 27………………..…7:45 AM

Bragging rights: Okay a proud dad has to brag about his sons every once in a while. John VII (our lake swim record holder and a senior at Dr. Phillips H.S.) finished 3rd in the 200 IM (1:57.6) 5th in the 100 fly (52.8) and split (47.9) on the 4X100 free relay at the 4A high school regional swimming championships (he was unshaved).  Jake (our dark swim lake record holder and a freshman at Dr. Phillips H.S.) finished 3rd in the 500 free (4:59.8) and 9th in the 200 free (1:52.7) he was shaved. We are looking forward to even faster swims from them next weekend at the High School State swimming Championships.

New lake swim record breakers.  Alisa Novashinski set the 35-39 women’s record in 15:09 and Brett Jones set the men’s 25-29 record with a 14:31.

Ron Beaudettei became our first Canadian to make it into the 100K club.  It’s a long drive from his house in Canada to the lake but he does it every morning without complaints which makes this milestone event more impressive.

Carp

The Name your Carp Campaign is well under way.  We have already named a couple of hundred carp so don’t miss this opportunity of a lifetime. SEE CARP NAMES HERE (this list is old so I still have well over 100 names to add).  To name your carp write your name on a 3×5 card and the carp’s name or names (you can name as many as you like for $10 each, but you are out of luck if you want to name your carp Darryl as Todd Pace has named all 100 of his carp Darryl).  Put the card with a check made out to Lake Cane Restoration Society or cash in the coffee payment bowl next to the wall of fame.  Art work above is courtesy of Alixa Villalobos (The Carp in the painting are named Lucas and Thomas)

Top 100, Police, Ambulances, Carp and more!

Even if I have to say it myself, this is pretty cool. This ranks right up there with killing my first zombie and also learning that the purple, cone headed, creature that was my first born was indeed a normal child and not an alien implant ( I did doubt the doctors the first week and wore an aluminum foil cap as the alien baby was penetrating everyone else’s minds – they kept saying how cute and beautiful he was). All of you folks that have Lucky’s Lake Swim tattoos can now add “top 100” to the tattoo.

The World Open Water Swimming Association has listed Lucky’s Lake Swim as one of the top 100 open water swims in America.  Wooo! Hooo!

The World Open Water Swimming Association has listed Lucky’s Lake Swim as one of the top 100 open water swims in America. Wooo! Hoo!  A very cool honor and yes we will be making a sign!

At today’s swim there were police and an ambulance and I wanted to report what happened as to reassure everyone that things are okay.  A friend of mine (non-lake swimmer) who I trained with as a medical resident many years ago, randomly stopped by the house today before the swim.  He has a known public record of mental health problems, and he was behaving extremely manic as some of you noticed.  His friends that were accompanying him did not know what to do and they reached out to me for help. Due to some of his statements and actions, I was concerned for his health and safety so I contacted the police.  The police were in agreement that he was in need of a mental health evaluation and they took him to a local hospital for treatment.  I have spoken with his family and they are pleased that he is receiving help.  His appearance was random and had nothing to do with the lake swim or pancake breakfast. I apologize that I was distracted from the lake swim and breakfast this morning, but as Allen Saunders said ““Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.”

The pancake breakfast was a giant success we raised over $1100 for “The Carp Campaign” “We have many carp that already have been named, but it’s still not too late to name your own Carp. Mi Hoshino has taken on the naming task an I am sure we will get all 500 carp named.Now you may be wondering how we get the names on the carp and our carp identification expert“Ron” has explained it to me this way “Ron’s own words” (“We use satellites and lasers to beam
down on the carp)  So if you catch a carp and you can’t read its name then it is because the satellite is out of geosynchronous orbit or there is obstruction of the laser in the outer stratosphere -I hope this helps.

Many thanks to all of our chefs (I no longer use the work cook to describe food preparers after watching Breaking Bad) Mi, Audrey, Terri, Gene, and Jerry . . . I know there were others, but these guys were the photo hogs.

How do you measure success at a pancake breakfast?  Well George weighed 110 lbs before breakfast and this photo is an after shot.  Just to clarify a bit, George is carbo loading for next week.  He is defending his national title in shooting . . .  Shoot straight - Live long!

New Record holders and Name your Carp

Congratulations to our new record holders.  Gene Augustin set the record of 39:22 for the 80-84 age group.  Not bad considering he was receiving chemo just a few weeks ago. Katie Heffernan set the women’s 19-24 record and Frank Geraci smashed the 24-29 record with a time of 14:33.  There are fewer and fewer age group records slots that don’t have a name beside it. Men’s 10-under and 70-74 and  women’s 10-under, 11-12, 15-16, 25-29 and anything above 60.  If you know swimmers in these age groups encourage them to come on out. Click here for CURRENT RECORDS

Gene wasted no time in setting the men's 80-84 record in is first swim back after finishing his chemotherapy.

Gene wasted no time in setting the men’s 80-84 record in is first swim back after finishing his chemotherapy. He is not giving the thumbs up – his arms spasmed after the swim and he has been walking around all day like this.

Pancake breakfast and swim on Saturday Nov 2nd. For each $10 donation you can name a carp that is being released into the lake.  Bring lots of money and name a entire family of carp.

Pancake breakfast and swim on Saturday Nov 2nd. For each $10 donation you make you can name a carp that is being released into the lake. Bring lots of money and name a entire school of carp.  Also for $10 you can rename a carp that has been after you.  For instance I am renaming the carp Ron named “Lucky the Zit Popper” to “Lucky Rico Suave”. I think you get the idea. We will not allow for anonymous naming of carp, but you can always donate without naming a carp.  We will be posting all names.

If you see this carp swimming in the lake his name is Lucky Rico Suave

New rules, pancake breakfast, raffle winner and more!

Lake swim records are now posted on the web site.  You can find the link under the photo in the upper left hand corner of the website or you can click here. This is not the final format of the record board.  We are currently working on a drop down tab that will list the progression of the record times for each age group and the top ten all time best swims.  Should be about two weeks before this is up.  The records are also posted on the dock.  We will be timing for records on Saturdays.  If you are an out of town swimmer and are here on the weekdays please let me know ahead of time if you will be trying for a record so we can make arrangements to time you. You can set records towing a swimmer safe buoy or life guard torpedo but not a pull buoy or any device that gives you buoyancy.

We now have a pace clock for the swim.

We now have a pace clock for the swim

NEW RULES FOR FIRST TIME SWIMMERS. Due to a few swimmers slipping through our screening process and needing assistance (which we don’t have) in getting back to shore we are instituting some new safety rules.

1.We expect all swimmers doing the lake swim to be competent swimmers that can easily swim one kilometer in open water without assistance.
2. From now on  new swimmers  for the first three full crossings  will be expected to swim with some floatation device. Swim safe buoy, pull buoy, wetsuit, life guard torpedo etc… ( we have plenty of these items to loan out)
3. First time dark swimmers will also be required to use floatation for the first three swims no matter how many daylight swims they have done.
4. If you are learning open water swimming by doing a partial swim (i.e. to the first buoy and back you (must swim with a chaperone and the chaperone must also have floatation).
5. Swimmers 12 and under must swim with a chaperone, both swimmer and chaperone must have floatation.
6. Regular swimmers please do not encourage new swimmers to attempt the swim unless you know they are competent at swimming one kilometer. Please also help police the swim, if you see someone you question their swimming abilities point it out.

John has been doing alot of swimming in the house by himself so for safety reasons I started having him wear the ISHOF SafeSwimmer float and I'm glad I did.  Tonight he swam right into the billard table and knocked himself silly.  He  had slipped below the floor boards and if it wasn't for the safeswimmer buoy he might have been lost forever below the cement foundation of our house.  We now all wear the safe swimmer  buoy wether we are doing a short sprint to the fridge or just lazily floating down the stairs.

This is a great device and they say it works even better in the pool or lake.

 

Duck is now officially in the 100K club thanks to Mi Hoshino letting duck swim with her.  Duck insisted on an all-american photo with a brass band and fireworks to commemorate his making the crossing.  This was the best we could do. He was mad so he pooped on me but missed the hat.

Duck is now officially in the 100K club thanks to Mi Hoshino letting duck swim with her. Duck insisted on an all-american photo with a brass band and fireworks to commemorate his making the club (exactly the same as what Ron wanted with the exception of the Blue Angles fly over). This was the best I could do (I think is looks all-american). He was mad  about not having the brass band  and fireworks so he pooped on me but missed the hat. My understanding is duck is running laps around the yard with Mi after the swim. I’m sure he will quit that once he discovers there is not an award for yard runs.

Yes, Gene is BACK cancer free and raring to go and you know what that means!  Yes, it’s time for another pancake breakfast swim.  We are hosting a pancake breakfast on Saturday November 2nd.  We are raising funds for getting triploid carp for the lake to take care of the the Hydrilla problem. (Those are the weeds we are having to swim through more and more). We have over 200 already ordered. Any donation of any size would be great – our suggested donation is $20.

Mike Sasso wins $850 in the raffle for the Gladiator water polo club's trip to the national invitational. If Mike owes you money now is a great time to collect! Mike thanks all the Lucky's Lake Swimmers that bought tickets that were losers . . . but at least we all got a muffin.
