OSS Swim the Thames 2012 - Dates for your Diaries

At the risk of reducing the spontaneity and the rather happy go lucky
approach to our swimming we have set dates for the 2012 season of the
OSS Swim the Thames. Don't know exactly where we will be swimming on
these dates yet but these are the dates we will be swimming on.  Full
details will be sent in the normal way, a couple of weeks prior to each
swim, via Facebook events, OSSOxon / OSSRATS mail list and the OSS
website.  Gives us flexibility to vary our pace to suit the conditions
and how we feel on the day.

We've attached a calendar and list of dates that you can print and stick
to the fridge with the dates on.

We have earmarked 5 weekends for camps so we can have two days swimming
and a night time dip.  How this works will depend on where we are on
that dates and if there is a suitable site so we will play this by ear
and if we don't manage all days at least hope to get three camps this year.

For the mid summer swims we're trying the idea of a late afternoon /
early evening swims followed by a pub dinner as an alternative to
morning swims. We can always change to the day time again if we decide
that we don't like the idea after all.

Pencil these dates in your diaries and look out for the individual
announcements with full details nearer the time.
