Congratulations on a very very well organized and one of the most well communicated/supported races I have participated in over my 30 years of racing. You also attracted a very high quality field of competitors from the local area. Bruckner was an awesome asset along with the sports psych on the boat to ease the minds of the swimmers.

I don’t think that I will do any other events. You really have it down to a science of how to run an event. I am really impressed with how you make the event so personal for everyone, and you make it your duty to see that everyone has a great time and an unforgettable experience.
