From Carol Cashell:
It’s that time of year again, mark your Calendars for the Turkey Swim Dates 2014! Remember this is open to everyone who swims regularly in the Sea, no matter where they normally swim! This is not exclusive to any club or group of swimmers, If you want to swim on a date, come along and join in, no matter where the swim is on! The Sandycove times are based on tides and are the same as the Sandycove swim calendar. At Myrtleville we can swim on any tide so there is a mix of Morning/afternoon times to try and suit all people days. There is a swim on every weekend to give people options.
How the ‘Turkey Swims’ work:
** Swimmers Sign In and pay €2 on the day of Swim. (someone will have a money box and signIn sheet).
** Money Collected goes towards Prizes drawn on 21st Dec at Sandycove, These include Butcher Vouchers (instead of an actual Turkey) and many other spot prizes (wine / chocolates / selection boxes etc!). We had over 20 prizes last year.
** Don’t Forget to Pay and Sign In, if you don’t you are not in the draw!
** Make however many swims you can, 1 – 10.
** The more you swim, the more times you are entered for the ‘draw’.
** A Swim Dosn’t have to be a full lap of Sandycove, or 30mins, no min/max time or distance, turn up and do what you feel comfortable with on the day. Togs or Wetsuit, up to you, swim safe, stay warm, swim with similar speed buddies.
** The Swimmers Turkey Series is a Social Event for Cork OW swimming in the Winter. Remember to bring your Flasks for after the swims, Nibbles are always welcome too!. Have Fun and Enjoy 🙂
