Open Water Swims

We will be doing open water swims this year on Monday's evenings STARTING APRIL 27th at 6:30 PM at Lake Lanier in Tryon, NC
 
SWIMS START at 6:30 SHARP
If you are late you can catch the group on the way back from the Warm-up
Please plan accordingly to be IN the water at 6:30!
 
Address:
Lake Lanier Boathouse
2004 West Lakeshore Drive
Landrum, SC 29356
 
No matter which way your GPS in your car wants to take you I promise you after work you DO NOT want to take HWY 14, unless you are very close to the Hwy 29/Hwy 14 intersection.
Take I-85 towards Charlotte all the way to I-26 towards Asheville.
 
From Greenville:
Take I-85 towards Charlotte
Take I-26 towards Asheville
Take Exit #1 - go LEFT off ramp
Go through Landrum - cross railroad tracks 
IMMEDIATE RIGHT on Hwy 176 for about 2-3 miles
HOT SPOT – LAST STOP FOR BATHROOM! NO FACILITIES AT THE LAKE!
You will enter NC and pass El Sureno Mexican Restaurant on your LEFT (Also our dinner location)
LEFT into lake entrance shortly (200m) afterwards – Across the street from an old strip mall
---
Road veers to the right
Once you see the lake go RIGHT over dam/bridge
My boathouse is on the LEFT about .75 from the dam/bridge (it
is at the end of the only straight away you will be on).
 
There is a black metal gate with a metal cut out of a dog & the house number 2004 on the fence post
The boathouse is blue with black shutters.
 
PARKING: Please park across the street – PARK OFF OF THE ROAD!!. If there is no parking there go past the boathouse
and turn around and park on the grassy area on the lake side of the road or in the large parking lot to your LEFT (NOT PAVED) which we are allowed to use.
DO NOT park under the covered parking since people who rent the house there normally park there. Please do NOT block them in. 
Parking is really not that difficult you just might have to walk for 200m which you all should be able to handle. 
If we do not park off the road the police will arrive so PLEASE PARK OFF THE ROAD!
 
NO FACILITIES AT THE LAKE!
But we do have a  place where you can get changed.



Here are the dates as they stand right now:
*Summer storms usually pass quickly and just because it is storming in Greenville doesn't mean it will be here so unless the weather is unusually bad still plan to attend. I will make the call at 5:00 PM if we have to cancel for weather.
