Watch the IronMan swim from a pontoon boat...

I am posting this via several Meetup groups in the hopes of filling the boat asap...

I have reserved two MSCR pontoon boats for that morning to give you wave side viewing of me struggling through the swim!!!
Here are the details:
Where: Board the pontoon at Tenney locks... MSCR dock.
When: 6am... yes I know it's early... but you won't regret this one early morning!
Bring: Breakfast stuff... think fruit, bagels, muffins, coffee, etc. to share. (NO alcohol or smoking allowed on board).
Cost: Only $12.50 per person... in advance please.
To secure your spot...
Post your yes RSVP... then I'd like to get the $$$ on or before Sat 24th to cover the bill and so that you have "skin in the game"!

We did this last year and it was pretty cool. The pontoon boat is able to get very close to the swimmers... you can hear them and easily see them. Bring your camera!
You will be off the water by about 9:50am.
This will be an adults only gig.... perfect for anyone considering the big event for 2014!!!

Come on aboard!

      Watching the sun rise over Lake Monona on a calm morning is a beautiful place to pray. Who needs the bricks and mortar of a church. (IMHO ;) OC

    I was on the end of Picnic Point this evening, when 4 swimmers arrived. They swam over from the UW Union. Then they took off for a quick 10-mile run to cool down. One was running barefoot...

    Hope you all have a good time on the boat. It sounds great.

    Full disclosure...
    I rented two boats. One is full with "close friends" (all Meetup friends). This boat was originally opened up to triathletes... there were a couple of takers... so I'm hoping to fill it with other meetup group members... rather than cancel it.
    I'm so glad you signed up!

    OC... so glad to see this...it shows only 10 spots though and you have TWO boats reserved? ...I'll plan on bringing paper products ( plates, paper towels...works better than napkins handiwipes, plastic ware,); munchies...bananas yogurt or fruit cups, jug of water, trash bag, sunblock.
