Anyone have room for one extra going out to the swim this Thursday? Also, there was talk of getting a betting pool going on riding the mechanical bull, everyone toss in $5, longest ride takes the spoils...
YES! Thanks Scott for shooting this out. It'd be awesome if we got a pool for longest bull ride wins. Could either do winner takes all or have 1st place male & female split the pot.
Who's in?!? Talking to you fellow Imoo'rs!!
It'll be cool to have an event where speed is a non-factor for once as well!
Adam, you're crazy if you think I'm getting anywhere near a mechanical bull this close to Moo. Those things really throw you around!
I might be up for getting roughed up in the Potomac though, weather depending.
I'm with Lindsey. Mechanical bull doesn't fit into my taper cross training. I'm most likely in for the swim and bull-riding spectating.
Do we have to register for this thing on thursday or can I just show up in the water via grade A cannonball?
Great idea Adam! Can't wait to the party tomorrow! The bull will be waiting for the big competition :)
Yes, you have to register for the Open Water Swim. The registration link is located on the " DC Tri Events" page.
Can't wait to see you all tomorrow! It will be a blast!
Swim is cancelled. Word from Denis Crean, the organizer. Mechanical bull (and Happy Hour) are still on, tho:
Unfortunately, we feel the incoming storm will compromise the safety of tonight’s swim. We will still have Happy Hour at Cadillac Ranch beginning at 6:30pm. Everybody is welcome to join us tonight. Remember to tell your server that you are with WaveOne to receive your discount.
We will honor your registration/payment for next week’s swim, September 1.

Because the incoming storm will compromise the safety of tonight's swim, we will post-pone the swim to next week, September 1st. WaveOne will honor your registration/payment for next week!
WE WILL STILL HAVE A HAPPY HOUR AT CADILLAC RANCH TONIGHT beginning at 6:30pm! The mechanical bull will be waiting and they will have fresh hay for us :)
Can't wait to see you tonight!
I'll forgive you mother nature on this one if you make it up to me(us) in a couple weeks in the midwest.
Perhaps, we can do this in about a month or so. Have fun if you make it tonight.
I'd love to go to the Happy Hour but would hate to get there and not find anyone. Who is going for sure? I don't mind the rain. I come from a country where it rains all the time!
Let me know.
Matt, Denis and I will be there!
See you at the Ranch!
Anybody going to the make-up session this Thursday? I thought they canceled last Thursday due to rain.
yes! We will be there for the swim and for our Reginal Happy Hour at Cadillac Ranch! See you there!
Anybody have room for one more going to the Nat'l Harbor swim tomorrow? I work by Navy Yard.
Where exactly at the National Harbor is this located and where would I park?
The National Harbor is located just south of rte 495 when you cross the Woodrow Wilson Bridge into Maryland. If you are traveling on 295 south, there is an exit right off of it as long as you follow the signs.
Parking? When you make the right turn towards the Nat'l Harbor, make the next right and you can park in the lot right by the water. There is a fee to park there, but I can't recall how to pay for it.
The swim's on the pier just down river of The Awakening statue. Park in one of the garages a block or two up from the statue.
Looking for clarification on swim start time. WaveOne site says swim will begin at 645. Under tri club events page, 615 is listed. I assume 645 since that's their usual time, but wanted to make sure.
I will confirm with Denis and will post the exact time here.
I just talked to Denis. The swim will start at 6:45pm. See ya there!!
