2019 Thanksgiving Day Cove

November 28, 2019

We had a cold, grey day for a swim, the tail-end of a storm, but the wind had pretty much died down.  Those who swam enjoyed a choice of three courses, though some modified their swims.  As a fun swim, no times, no order of finish was kept.  All finished and earned their turkey.

Group A = Eppleton Hall and back

Group B = Flag and back

Group C = Around the cove, clockwise

Swimmers, in alpha order:

Joni Beemsterboer, Lindsay Boswell, Karin Christenson, Peter Cullinan, Johan Duramy, Amanda Ernzer, Susan Garfield, Keith Gray, Lewis Haidt, Daphne Lagios, Andrea McHenry, Kent Myers, Jaron Ness, Era Osibe, Will Powning, Jamie Robinson, Robin Rome, Gina Rus, Donna Schumacher, Michael Tschantz-Hahn, Megan Wachs, Diane Walton, Janice Wood
