Hold off Hanna.....

also, this just in.......

Dear Shannon 
This is just an update to let you know that we are aware that Tropical Storm Hannah is approaching the Southeaster United States.  We have contingency plans in place and will know more in the next 2 days as the path of the storm becomes clear.  We currently are not planning on cancelling the event due to the current 60% chance of rain on Saturday.  Should a modification of the swim become necessary, we will let you know.  We will make use of email and the VTS homepage to keep you informed. 
We will be sending out the event details and standard pre-event email tomorrow.  
We will be updating the water temperature on Thursday afternoon.
Again, once we get a clearer picture of what is happening with the weather, we will make changes and adapt as necessary.  Your safety is our utmost concern and we want everyone who starts the event to finish it and to have a heck of a great time doing it! 

Can you say a little prayer for Hanna to get lost this week?

I'll be back......

Shannon, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! It must be hard to train and peak and taper, then have to do it all over again!
Let's hope Hanna's history!
