These will repeat every Monday at the same time and same place through mid-September. They are FREE to members. Non-members are welcome to join to try it out one time, but may be asked to sign a waiver. We will provide hydration and keep an eye on you and your belongings while you are in the water. We also take roll call to ensure everyone that goes in comes out. A COTC board member is present at all swims and will not leave until you are done with your swim.:)
Location: Alum Creek State Beach. If you haven't been before, please know that the beach is on LEWIS CENTER ROAD between South Old State Road and Africa Road and NOT on Old State Road as indicated on the parks website. If using a GPS, enter this address: 5900 Lewis Center Road.
Keep in mind that Lewis Center is closed from Africa Rd., so you can only get to the entrance from one direction. We meet between the big 5 and 6 signs (the far end when viewed from the entrance), and we'll have COTC signs as well.
What cancels a swim? Any water advisory or thunderstorms with a risk of lightning. We try to cancel by 5 pm via the Google Group/Email and Facebook.
