2016 Open Water Swim

FOPP Held the 11th annual Open Water Swim on August 13, 2016

We held our 11th open water swim today in mist and rain, together with warm wOWS participantsater, wind and great support. In many ways, I am sure it was harder for the spectators and assistants and for the swimmers.

OWS participants

Anyway, a big thank you to Krista Morrow for the guards, Vince Call for the kayak support, Barney Butler for the assistance with the course, Stan Mischley and others for timing, to Al Dziesinski for the signage and most

OWS participants

especially to Sandy Dziesinski and Cheryl Bates for so much — figuring out the cap numbering, organizing the tabulating, getting the bags set up, the food, the T-shirts ordered and purchased, and on and on. Finally, to all the others who support this event in so many ways, THANK YOU!!

And all this work created the following results.
