The growth in numbers swimming in Myrtleville this year has been huge and has contributed to the increased numbers participating in the Turkey Swims. Over sixty people swimming in November/December is a great sight. These events don’t just run themselves, though, so let’s give some credit to the organiser-in-chief (and Birthday Girl on Saturday), Carol Cashell.
I suppose we’d have to give some recognition to Ms. Harris, who helped out the odd time.
Finally, lest this become too much of a praising pukefest….
3pm on Saturday in Myrtleville for the Turkey Swim and 4.30pm or so for the Turkey Thaw in the Pine Lodge.
3pm on Sunday in Sandycove for the Turkey Swim and 4.30pm for the Turkey Series Bake Off. That’s an excuse to eat even more cakes, for anyone who doesn’t know about it.
For those poor misfortunes with work and other plans on Saturday (me) the usual 08.15 swim is still on. Also for double-dippers, of course, who might go for the early swim, Hassett’s, Christmas shopping in Centra, back to the beach for the Turkey Swim, Cakes, Turkey Thaw…what a day😊. Anyone?
