The official date for swimming the 3000 was Sunday but entries are due not later than Nov 25. This is a great annual test, please consider doing the swim not later than Saturday. If you’ve already swam, GREAT. Please register.
Thanksgiving Morning 5000 Yard Swim
There will be a practice on Thanksgiving morning starting at 5:30 am and will go to 7:30 am. This extra 30 minutes should allow most all swimmers the time to complete enough yards to get a jump start on burning off some Thanksgiving calories. Visitors are welcome, and we ask that you pay your drop in fee with a sack of groceries for our annual food drive.
Don’t forget we will be having our annual food drive during the Thanksgiving time frame. Be sure to bring in your non-perishible food, in cans, plastic or boxes (avoid glass please).

Finally, you need to join the Loveland Masters group by clicking this link once you have the app installed: https://groupme.com/join_group/17435475/85D3Fn
That should do it, but if you run into any trouble, catch me on deck and we will try to work through it!
