New Meetup: Limmatswim 2010!!!

From: Sven
Sent on: Wednesday, August 18, 2010 1:47 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Zurich Hike & Outdoor!

What: Limmatswim 2010!!!

When: Saturday, August 28,[masked]:30 AM

Where: B?rkliplatz


Every year the city of Z?rich opens up the Limmat for one day to swim from the "Frauenbadi" (near B?rkliplatz) to Oberer Letten, which is 2km long.
Originally, this event was planned on the 21. August, but was postponed one week later, due to the high water level of the river.

Who wants to join the Meetup Group for a good swim this year?!

The only requirements are that you are a swimmer and have the condition to stay on top of the water for 2km. From pictures, I assume that you will be provided also with a floating device, which makes it easier.
I have been also reminded that using a bathing suit is also required....(damn)

The link to the Limmatswim is this one:

The ticket to participate is CHF 25 for an adult if you buy it on the same day. Another option is to buy it on the Internet until the 27th of August, which costs only CHF 15. However, if the event is cancelled for any reason, there is no refund.

Meeting point and time
I have no experience on how this event will look like and to where is the best place for us to meet. But B?rkliplatz on the center sounds a reasonable place.
The time to meet is 11:15-:30. The we slowly move to the Start point. I guess we should be with our bathing suite on and the tickets bought.
The official opening of the river is at 12:00.

After the Swim
The group will be sepparated on the swim and the end of the swim anyway. So bringing the group together again seems hard. A possibility is that some people wait us with a grill turned on the resting place between Wipkingerstrasse and Amperestrasse? smile

Any questions? You can call me per phone on[masked] 4480.

I will be monitoring the status of this event. If any cancelations, I will post it on this site.

Hope to see you then!
