edited July 13 in Event Announcements

Just throwing this out there...
PLANNED for the FIRST weekend in February 2018.
Location Aquatic Park SF CA USA Earth
Club - TBD
Cost - $75 (preferred method of payment is paypal, I tend to lose checks and I don't want cash) A couple of changes from previous years- NO team smaller than 5.
There will be a participant limit of 50 people. While it was FABULOUS to have sooo many swimmers , it was a bit much for the facility and well frankly, I didn't get to talk to everyone!
Please email me at suziedods@hotmail.com or call me 41-531-3374 if you have questions.
That is all.
This will be the 5th year and I'm so excited to see so many other 24 hour relay events happening as well, (L.O.S.T, looking at you!)

    24h x 60m / 50 = 28,8 min/person

    I wonder if that's enough :)

    24h x 60 min / 5 = 288 min/person for a team of 5 Definitely more than enough

    Suzie, does this event fill up quickly? If so when should we have our team registered? Looks like an awesome event.

    Rob, I have to get it approved ( usually happens in November) and then you need to pay. :). I then either put you on a team or you tell me which team you are on. I believe , as I said, I will have to limit the participants to 50 this year but that will be determined by the November Board meeting. Sit tight for a bit..:) but do let me know if you have any questions. There are 4 previous threads on the event for your enjoyment.

    Put me on a team that doesn't mind a slow swimmer. :)

    Speed is truly irrelevant at this event. Ability to stay in the water awhile, especially at 2am, is highly prized.

    What @evmo said. It's all about time, not so much distance. I know folks (not gonna say who) who did some of their time just standing in knee-deep water for an hour.

    Make sure you eat enough, because I didn't and I think that's why I became a zombie at midnight -- BUT I DID GO IN AT 4am!!!

    My life is about to undergo a massive and abrupt shift in the next month, so I sadly can't commit yet. But boy oh boy it's fun, even though the exhaustion afterward is pretty epic.

    ME! And @Karl_Kingery and @malinaka and @uss_lenning and @AnthonyMcCarley, for starters. :-)

    I really hate 3 am. :-)

    After we found out that @emkhowley was sick, we decided that we needed to stand in solidarity for her until her return. ;)

    It's true. Standing is an art form, just so you know. :-)

    I have to work on that cold water tolerance too! But I figure this could be a fun excuse to acclimate! :)

    Just a heads up.. working w the swim comish at SERC to bring event back to SERC. This may also include a change in the way payment is processed. If you are a SERC member and would like to see the event return to SERC please pm me.

    We have a venue and we may be doing a dual venue. I got UNANIMOUS (!!) approval from SERC board to have the event at SERC, but thinking about it I believe that we will be having dinner at DC and maybe sleeping at DC... stay tuned. DO NOT SEND payment .I believe that the funds will be handled differently this year, I have to speak with the SERC treasurer. Cost remains $75, let me know if you have questions about that. DO email suziedods@hotmail.com me if you are interested as I am going to put a "soft " cap of 50 people. You do not need a team, I will find/make you one. Also , smallest team is 5 people.. not 4. But we do have an event!

    Heads up again- The cost will be $78 as the site that SERC uses takes %3. DO NOT PAY ME. There is a cap of 60 swimmers and as soon as the site is up ( probably in a week or two) I will notify you here and on fb. At this point it's ALL at SERC and sleeping will be a bit tighter but we may actually have use of both clubs ( at least, that's my goal).
