Rob Gets An Award without even being there!

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?
