40 Mile Swim Challenge
The following is submitted by Maya Hahn:
Hard to believe that summer is almost gone. Labor Day! It was just July 4th. But we still have the rest of the summer to enjoy our beautiful Venetian.
I’m happy to report that I’ve ordered 51 plush, 100 % cotton, 35 x 70 inch, aqua towels for those of us who swim or exceed 40 miles this summer. I got a sample towel from the company, towel hub (a local Atlanta company), and have been using it all summer and laundering it with no fading. Almost all of those 51 members have met or exceeded their 40 miles and the remainder are mighty close and should be able to make it, easily, in extended swim. As of Friday, September 4, collectively, we’ve swum more than 2800 miles. That’s 400 miles more than we swam all season last year and 12 more swimmers making or surpassing their goal and enjoying doing it!
So, I’ve had an idea: How about taking a creative selfie (or have someone else photograph you) with your towel and sending it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will work (with the help of some members more computer savvy than I am) to make a photo montage of all of us that we can post on the Venetian Pools Facebook page and use to create a large scale photo of us, like the swim team has. If you are one of these computer savvy people, I’d love your help. I should have the towels by September 15 and will distribute them at the pool until September 30. If I’m at the pool when you pick up your towel, I’ll be happy to photograph you. In fact, even if you didn’t make the 40 miles and you want to be included, you can send a selfie, too. After all, you tried.
What do you think? Good idea?
