Friday Swim at Negro Bar!

Back by popular demand!

Lake Natoma is at its summer optimum ~60 f.

We'll probably swim the usual route, up around the bridge, and back.  Could go furtherupstream into the current, if anyone's interested.

Where: Lake Natoma — Negro Bar - Entrance off Greenback Lane just west of the Lake Natoma Crossing Bridge (see the map)

Meeting point: in the parking lot above the beach, then we'll walk down to the beach.

Entrance fee to the park: $10 to the iron ranger in the park; or invest in a Golden Poppy Pass, $125 gets you into lakes Natoma and Folsom unlimited times for the year.

Skill Level: Able to swim 1/2 mile
Needed: Bright colored swim cap, goggles, wetsuit (optional), Neoprene cap (optional).

We will try to use the buddy system and match people up of like speed and strength. No lifeguard will be on duty. This meetup is swim at your own risk. Please sign in and sign out on the clipboard.

Open water is great fun! It is a blast to swim in a group and enjoy the lake!

    I won't be able to make it to negro bar in time. I work 12 hour shifts and seemed to have slept through my alarm.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
