    Lake Townsend is a scenic lake at Bryan Park about 14 miles from Greensboro Aquatic center.

    Where did you see the water temp? It's hard for me to believe the water will be cold in a lake in North Carolina in late July!

    I couldn't find the actual current water temp but I found a copy of the form that the organizing committee filled out with USMS and on that it said that the estimated water temp is 84 degrees for the day of the swim and that the estimated air temp for the day/time is 78 degrees.

    There is a swimmer list (by event and age group) available on the event website now if anyone is interested in checking out what the numbers look like in the various events.

    There's a link from the Swimming page that's as of 6/20. Just looked at the OW times entered and am thinking about it now. Hmm...

    I'm one of the slower times entered (I think I have probably underestimated myself a little, but felt like I'd rather err on the side of slowness in case there were enough people for waves based on time). And I felt a little better after getting to see some of the other times. It's hard to find open water events so I'm excited for the chance to get another one in this summer and to see how this event turns out.

    Thanks, I found it! I signed up! I wanted to go to scy Nats at Greensboro but being a teacher none of the USMS Nationals ever sync up with my time off. I'll just have to wait till I retire to do those.

    Me too, but LCM works out sometimes.

    The swimming deadline (and some other sports) has been extended until July 10. I'm pretty busy, but thinking about a one day trip to swim 400 IM and 100 Breast.

    Re: Going to USA Masters Games?

    Unfortunately the open water swim was canceled due to the high water temp. Fortunately the hotel I had my reservation at let me cancel, but I was already in Greensboro by that point. I'm local enough that it wasn't too bad, but still a bummer. I did get to watch some of the last day of the pool events and I got to swim some laps in the pool. I'm curious what people who went and competed in the pool thought about things. I wish now that I'd signed up to do some pool stuff in addition to the open water, but I've never actually competed in a pool meet and wasn't sure I wanted this to be my first go at it. From what I saw though things were friendly and relaxed and it might have been a good time for a pool meet debut.

    Really? High water temp? Wow, I can't imagine that. Heck, one of the pools I train at was at 90 this weekend.

    Follow up on the masters games... great fun, fast pool, well organized. TONS of social events (opening ceremonies, bands every night, athlete's village with games, bar, snacks). Meet was somewhat sparsely attended but I really hope it catches on with the masters swim community. I give it a 2 thumbs up.

    I totally agree with you Evan! The games were well organized, good pool, and plenty of social activities available to athletes. The medals were very nice too! I'd like to do this competition again!
