Water temp in high 60’s and more . . .

Yes the water temperature is now in the high 60s with more folks showing up and a higher percentage of swimmers in wetsuits.  That’s correct you read that right.  This is the “Lucky’s Lake Swim Paradox”  When the water drops below 70 degrees the colder is gets the higher the percentage of swimmers in the lake are without wetsuits. There is a very valid scientific reason for this . . . extreme cold is highly selective for mentally unstable people that are incapable of understanding the need for a wetsuit.

Jerry K. (One of our superstar volunteers checking folks in at the Swim Shack) has started the Aquatic Quote of the Week which he is displaying on the whiteboard each Saturday.  If you have a good quote pass it on to Jerry please do so.  Lucky contributed the first quote of the week.

I’m an Aquaholic, I’m powerless over my addiction, and I’m here to binge.

“Doc Lucky”

 

Speaking to other highfaluting  literary stuff – Barb Abney’s poem was selected by the Lake Cane Restoration Society’s Poet Laureate as this LCRS meeting’s winner.  The poem is now in the running with many other poems as the greatest poem of all time, final selection date is scheduled for some time in the future. For all of you poetry buffs out there below is the complete uncensored version.

Finally regarding other artistic ventures of Lake Cane Swimmers please check out the new short film “How not to open a Safe” featuring two of our notable swimmers Doc Lucky and Tom “The preacher man”  Lucky and Tom attempt to open  a safe (with possible treasure inside) that has not been opened in 50 years.  This has a much better ending that the opening of Al Capone’s vault. Sadly, the selections for the academy award for short films has already been determined, but they may have a shot for the finals of the Dumb and Dumber film festival, as they have been notified it will be screened on Feb 31st, they are pumped.

Finally we appreciate all the board members that came to the Lake Cane Restoration Society meeting on Thursday.  It was great to see such a good turnout and all the great activity. As always Jay ran a super meeting (meaning we finished on time) The food was great!!! Many Thanks to Pammie Sammies.  Tom and Jay stayed behind to knock Pam off a ladder, we will see if we can continue to have meetings there . . . likely depends on how fast the swelling of her chin goes down.

Barb's most excellent poem.

A beautiful shot of a big bird at lake Cane taken by Jacquie Meisenheimer.  Then she showed me a video of a mountain goat being hauled off by an eagle . . . and you wonder why Lucky has been swimming in the Swimex.

Paula Yankauskas a returning swimmer from Vermont. This year she crossed the English Channel - she was the 1,701st person to do so and the oldest USA woman!
