Well organized swim event at a great venue. I've enjoyed lap swimming at Shady Oak Lake/Beach, but 'have always wanted to do a full OW swim. I'll be back - especially with such an affordable entry fee!
The last minute racers who signed up (50 the day before) no doubt caught the organizers off guard - the start coral was too small/narrow. VERY crowded 3rd wave with swimmers crashing into each other more than usual.
