Swim tips
1. Dress up in Fancy Costume if you like, but it will get wet! Make sure you bring a change of warm clothing.
2. If you have a heart problem – just watch and cheer us on!
3. All swimmers must sign the waiver. Adults must sign for children, and must swim and stay with the child at all times.
4. Please keep your dog on leash.
5. Do not drink – alcohol does not warm you up – it accelerates hypothermia. Intoxicated swimmers will be discouraged.
6. Do not stay in the water longer than 15 minutes. Body heat is lost 25 times faster in water than in air.
7. Do not remove your clothing until swim time. The swim will be started by a whistle.
8. After your swim, change into dry clothing quickly.
9. Warm up with coffee or hot chocolate.
