    5K Postal

    Any Master Swimmers in the surrounding area interested in swimming the 5K Postal event?
    Thought since we have the pool we might as well use it.

    When: Saturday August 31 7am

    Where: Hopkins Park Pool, Dekalb


    If you are interested respond to this post. I would like to have a idea how many swimmers are interested.

    We would like a 20.00 donation to defray pool, guard and timer costs.

    Dirk,
    I live in Rockford and would like to do this. Will it be in the 50 meter pool?
    Do you have an e-mail I could contact you with?

    Definitely interested... need to check the family schedule, I'll post back later today. Also, I'll try to convince some of the rest of the SE Wisconsin contingent. We're as far north of Chicago as you guys are west, here in Kenosha, so it'll take about 2 hours to get there... any chance you could start a little later (even 8:00-8:30 would be great)?

    Talked to some of the Kenosha swimmers today, no bites yet... they like the short sprints and think I'm kinda weird for doing the distance events anyway; I could make it down there for a 7AM start... might be a little groggy though!

    That's fine, Dirk, I'll be able to make it... just might be a little groggy at the start. The traffic around Chicago area will be much lighter at that time, so at least the drive will be easy!
    Thanks,
    Alex

    5K Postal Swim was stopped due to lightning just after 8 am and 3000 meters

    Thanks to all the participants especially to the people who drove long distances to attend. Thanks to the Coaches, Guards and timers
    who helped put on this event and DeKalb Park District for the use of the pool. Dirk
