Open Water 2019

Swimming at the Chatfield Gravel Pond is on this summer! Swimming will be offered by Chatfield Gravel Pond Swimmers, a registered USMS/COMSA club, from Saturday July 6th to Saturday September 28th. Swimming will be on Saturday mornings. If we have enough swimmer interest, we may offer additional times, as other permitted times are available. The current swim time is from 7:30 to 10:00 am. As in the past, we do need help with monitoring and check in/out. We do not need as much help as in the past however! We only need one monitor and one check-in/out person per session.

There are two sessions each swim date. We do need those who are swimming to help with monitoring or check-in/out. If we donít have volunteers, then we will need to move to an option with less freedom and move to a swim where you must sign up in advance. Then we will swim as a group for a pre-determined time.

For insurance purposes, those monitoring and/or swimming must be registered with USMS/COMSA before swimming at the gravel pond with our group. USMS registration is discounted on/or after July 1st, if you are not currently registered. Rules and instructions will be posted on our Facebook page and will be sent to volunteers on the Friday before they help. Search for Chatfield Gravel Pond Swimmers to find us on Facebook, to sign up, and see the volunteer instructions. We look forward to seeing everyone at the pond this summer. Enjoy!.
