Chris, Tim and Jim were out for a run when they spotted Rob's car in the West Neck Beach parking lot. They got there just in time to see him get out of the water and dash to his car to warm up. You can tell how cold it really was by the way they are dressed -- this was no summertime fun run!

Another Swimmer's Holiday Brunch has come and gone, The 2005 edition was held on Sunday, December 4, 2005 at the Huntington Hilton. It was one of the smallest groups we've had but everybody enjoyed themselves. Our "Crazy Canadian", (see award and story about Rob below), was the talk of the Brunch. I'm sorry that I didn't get pictures of everybody -- except for the mandatory group shot -- but I'll try to do better next event. Could that be the 2005 Winter Water Polo? Check with Bob, he's in the middle of trying to set it up. See you in the pool... Mike.

Want to earn a nick name like "Crazy Canadian" in just one day? No problem. Just do what Rob did and go for a little Open Water Swim in December -- Saturday December 3rd to be exact. The water temperature was around 50 degrees and the air temp a comfy 40 degrees in the sun. Don't ask about wind chill. In any event, Rob did it, recovered and went to a swim meet the next day, took two first places! The meet ran long (because of the morning snow storm) so Rob and Christine were not able to make it to the brunch. His award will be held for his next OWS -- did anybody say January 2006?
