My wife Sabrina and I both registered for the Kau Wela Open Swim this weekend and were really looking forward to a quick trip to St. George. Unfortunately, I got an email yesterday afternoon telling me that the swim had been canceled due to a lack or participants. If you were registered, like we were, St. George City will be sending refund checks in the mail.
The competition will be rescheduled to June 4th, 2011 and will include a beginner open triathlon division. Hopefully by holding it earlier in the year there are enough participants to hold the event.
This leaves just one more swimming competition for me this year: Slam the Dam. I am really excited for the race and to swim at Lake Mead for the first time. Registration closes on September 26 so if you were thinking about participating you only have a few days left to sign up.
