We have been informed that a swimmer was hit while swimming in Lake Cane by a pontoon boat. Although happily, the swimmer was not injured, the pontoon boat may still be in the ICU. The accident occurred around 5 pm, and the swimmer, a resident who lives on the lake, was not participating in Lucky’s Lake Swim. Notably, he was not wearing a safer swimmer buoy or cap. The boat captain said he never saw the swimmer but stopped the boat when he felt a thud. Moral of the story: if you are out doing wild swims on your own, wear a bright swim buoy and cap, or you might get eaten by a boat prop.

Tomorrow is national sea monkey day; please celebrate wisely and safely.

Congrats to Gregg Dedic who became our 1st Special Olympian to make it into the 2000K club. Gregg will be swimming in the Golden Mile on May 28th and he will also be competing in the USA Special Olympics games in the Open water competition, which is being hosted at Lucky’s Lake Swim.

Garfield who lives in Wales over the pond (Not Wales, Kentucky which is just east of Punk’s Tire & Wheel Alignment on 122).  We believe he is the first foreign national that does not reside in the US to make it into the 100 K club.  Sorry about the license plate holder, wrong size for Wales.

Rick Stafford (aka Aquaman) earned his Gold Cap Saturday with his 1000th crossing. Rick can easily be recognized in the water by his ever present snorkel, which can also be used as a bong in emergencies.

There will be no regular Lucky’s Lake Swim on Saturday May 28th due to the Golden Mile® Want to swim on the 28th then sign up for the Golden Mile®
