Utah Open Water Mini Swim Camp

I wanted to let everyone know about a fun event we have coming up.  It's kind of a last minute thing, but we are putting together a mini swim camp at East Canyon reservoir on July 27 and 28.

We have already reserved a large group camp site that includes room for 10-15 tents, 25 cars, a large pavilion with picnic tables, BBQs, toilets (vault not flush) and parking for about 25 cars.  The camp site is located close to the water and will be our base camp for the weekend.

The plans are still coming together but you can count on lots of swimming including a night swim on Friday night and some racing for fun on Saturday.  If I can track down a projector and screen, I would it would be cool to show a swimming related movie on Friday night (maybe "On a Clear Day").

I don't really consider myself a coach, but if anyone wants help with any open water related skills over the weekend, I am more than happy to help.

Either Friday night or Saturday afternoon (or possibly both) we will have a BBQ together.  Bring your own meat or other main dish and something to share with the group.  There is no water at the campground, so bring plenty of drinks and we will also have some water coolers.  Other than the group BBQ(s), you will be responsible for your own food.

This is intended to be a fun event and will be pretty laid back (i.e. no set schedule of events).  Swim as much or as little as you want, bring your bikes, boats, kayaks, running shoes, etc. if you want to do more than just swim.  We are also encouraging families to attend (I will be bringing mine).  As I said, the plans are pretty loose at this point and I am open to your ideas and suggestions for the weekend.

If you are interested in coming, please let me know (especially if you want to camp out on Friday night).  For Facebook users, you can RSVP on the event page and also get all the latest updates.  The cost will be pretty minimal (probably around $15-$20) and will just go to covering the cost of the campsite rental.  Spread the word, it should be a good time!
