Bob’s Dreaded Nighttime Swim
42 nd Annual
What – 1 mile open water swim in the dark on the full moon in August.
When – Thursday, August 11, 2022
Cost - Free!
It is that time of year when insane people swim from La Jolla Cove to La Jolla
Shores Beach in the dark on the full moon in August.
All the victims, I mean participants meet at the lifeguard tower at La Jolla
Cove at 8:45 for the course talk. At 9:00 pm we will enter the water at the Cove
and swim to the 3 bright lights on La Jolla Shores Beach. The swim is just under
one mile. Return is your responsibility.
This is a great experience. (If you make it)
Feel free to invite your friends. (or enemies)
Warning – This swim is not for the faint of heart. Sharks
have been sighted in the area of the swim. There
are NO support people. You may get separated from
the main group and find yourself alone in the dark
water. Do not do this swim unless you are a strong
swimmer and fearless.
Not sure about the water temperature so you may need a wetsuit.
You may wear fins if you wish.
No RSVP necessary, just show up.
Contact me with questions at email@example.com
Feel free to let others know about this.
PS Big fish feed at night!
PSS You do not have to out swim the shark, you just have to out swim
the person next to you! (Don’t worry, Bob is a slow swimmer)
Team Zoot is opening registration to their training camp to TCSD members! See info below:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for pdf of detailed schedule.
WHERE: Carpinteria State Beach Camp Ground, Carpinteria CA
WHEN: June 16th- 19th 2022
ACCOMMODATIONS: Tent camping in group campsites
WHO IS INVITED: Team Zoot/TCSD members AND their families. Since “it takes a village” the support staff and family members of Team Zoot athletes are invited. The idea is, while the Tri people are off training, the support members and kids have a fun group to take in all that the beach campground has to offer amongst a like-minded group of people.
Big shout out to our very own Judi Carbary who was selected as the USAT 2021
Volunteer of the Year. As stated in the award, “This award recognizes an
individual or organization whose volunteer leadership in the Multisport
movement has been transformative and who has mobilized and unified athletes,
programs, and organizations that improve the events, youths, or others
affiliated with the sport.” We know Judi locally for her support of Splash
and Dash for kids. What you might not know is that she is very active
running the Official USAT Multisport Committee FB page, as well as being a
very engaged member of that committee as well as Team USA.
Here’s what Dave Lasorsa, Chair of the USAT Multisport Committee had to say:
I can think of no other volunteer who fits this description better. Judi,
through her work with the “Splash and Dash” series, has long introduced a
number of youths to Multisport in S. California. More recently, her work as
the founder and administrator of the USAT Multisport Committee Facebook Page
has promoted all disciplines of Multisport and served as a center where
athletes can find the latest, accurate information for races, National and
World events, and Team USA-related issues. She has personally organized a
number of Town Halls where athletes can interact directly with Race
Directors. Every day, she fields dozens of questions from athletes, and
finds answers from appropriate USAT staff, saving these staff multiple
queries. Her boundless energy makes her a true “endurance athlete.”
Congratulations Judi on a well-deserved award!
