Swim and BBQ potluck on First Thursday of the month, please bring a dish to share that serves about 6 people,

*** Please Park in second parking lot where the BBQ's are located (see map below) , we will start the swim close to the Dock, the temperature will be slightly warmer at this starting point =)

The group supplies: plates, plastic utensils, napkins, condiments (catsup, mustard, relish), and charcoal/lighter. looking forward to the BBQ, I'm always amazed what yummy food items a potluck generates, and this group does not disappoint! :) mmm mmm!!

We moved to Lake Natoma! Open Water Thursday Group Swims at Lake Natoma Nimbus Flats State Park!! A fun supportive swimming group.

This is a good swim for those getting ready for triathlons and Open Water Swims, also a great time for beginners to try this out. Thank you and hope to see you out there!
