Chris Greene Lake Swim

Chris Greene Lake Gets Some Love

Rounding the buoy in an open water swim!

Rounding the buoy in an open water swim!

Spring is coming! And while in most places the water in the nearest lake/river/ocean is still plenty cold, open water season is just around the corner. There are plenty of organized open water events in and near our LMSC; now that USMS has finalized its latest guidelines for open water sanctions, be on the lookout for these events as you plan your upcoming season trips.

There are a few ways to search for OW events. You can click over to our Upcoming Events page and have a look; typing “OW” into the search box will quickly focus your attention on events that are (mostly) within driving distance of our LMSC. There are already quite a few entries, return frequently as more get added to the list.

If you are interested in wandering farther afield, check out the USMS Calendar of Events. If you do an advanced search you can specify OW events in a particular date range or area of the country.

A lot of OW veterans have their “bucket list” of events. USMS recently compiled a list of 10 great OW swims, and we were pleased that they included our very own Chris Greene Lake cable swims among them. This year’s event has been scheduled for July 13, so circle that date on your calendar now!
