So much planning and support from volunteers and sponsers goes into such a huge event, which must be overwhelming at times, but you people seem to have such a positive attitude and great leadership that you do an excellent job year after year!
Again, please know that ALL of you are very much appreciated for your time and effort in all you do in making this community event such a FUN time. Not just for the Kelowna swimmers, but the visiting swimmers plus all the families and friends who come out to cheer on their favorite swimmers.
Continued success in the future.
This was my first time participating in this event and I was very impressed with how well run it is.
A big thank you to all the organizers. I have wanted to do this swim for a long time and something always prevented me from entering, so had the best day. Everything was so well organized including all the swim clinics. The atmosphere was great. All your efforts were very much appreciated and I'm so proud to have been part of it.
Thank you for organizing such a well run and enjoyable event. This was the first year I participated and I loved it. I will be back for many more years!
The ATLS event was absolutely fabulous this year.
I just wanted to thank the race organizers and volunteers for a job well done. I thought the Across The Lake Swim was a FABULOUS event and very well run. I appreciated being able to participate in the pre-race swim clinics to ease my apprehension about swimming in open water (this was my first open water swim event). I thought the ATLS was great value for the registration fee. You had the best race package I have EVER seen, with tons of goodies and I loved the swim towel and cap.
Congratulations on another wonderful event, well organized & run. It gets bigger each year & I imagine offers new challenges which you seem to have dealt with well.
Hi! Its been my tenth time doing this and I was nine when I started. I would like to say after regatta stopped and this got alot bigger. This year was the best organized. Great on all volunteers. You were wonderful. Everything was very well organized. Really impressed with the start. Three years ago I got trampled. This year was great. A big THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO VOLUNTEERED THEIR TIME AND EFFORT FOR THIS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was the first event I have participated in and I just wanted to say it was an incredible experience. From the swim clinics to crossing the finish line I have nothing but good things to say.
Just wanted to say, another fantastic event. This is my 4th year doing the swim, and I plan to keep attending as long as I am able. Must be your great organizing and and the great people you have working to make the event so fun for everyone! Cheers!!
Just a short note to say a BIG Thank you to each and everyone of you!! Thank you for all that you have done for the event this year and for giving up all of your spare time to make this event happen… This was my first time being a part of your event to swim across the lake and it was fantastic..
The swim clinics were invaluable with awesome coaches, lots of positive energy & feedback, oodles of needed information and always left you with the feeling that you could accomplish the swim! Great people to talk to and ask questions of during the race package pick up…
On the day of the swim, everything was so well organized, it was incredible. Love the towel & water bottle and after the swim to be handed the swim cap was the icing on the cake!! Great designs, colors you have chosen and nice quality in the swim cap too!
Outstanding event in everyway!!
Hope to be a part of the swim again next year…
Thank you again!
Thank you to the organizers, coaches and volunteers and the sponsors. Everything was so well done. The swim clinics were very helpful - it was my first time - the package was useful and i appreciate especially the way information was disseminated and repeated. i will be back. Thank you.
I just want to let you know that you did a great job this year. With the # of swimmers the start area was excellent and went off without a hitch.
You guys put on a stellar event! I cannot believe all the great freebies in the event packs, all of the awesome volunteers and all of the encouraging people!
Thank you for putting on a wonderful event! It was very organized and all of the volunteers did a fantastic job.
Once again, you should all be applauded for a wonderfully successful ATLS event!
This is the 3rd time for me braving the depths of OK Lake, and I’ve never felt safer and more supported by the organizers and volunteers.
It is obvious that you all work very hard to make this a positive experience for the participants, especially anyone who feels unsure about the swim. I wasn’t concerned for myself, but I overheard some at the start line mentioning how the event was set up in a way to make the swim less nerve-wracking for them.
In all my years of volunteering this was THE BEST event I have ever volunteered at (and that’s saying a lot!)
I just wanted to say thanks for all of the teamwork that goes into planning such a wonderful and successful event! This was my 5th time doing the ATLS and it has become a reason for an annual Kelowna vacation for our family. I appreciate the positivity and encouragement from all of the volunteers encountered along the way (from package pickup to the finish line)!
A great event. Next year I'm bringing a bunch of friends so leave space for us!
Bravo and thank you!
Thank you for a very well run event. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Great race. Would love to return next year. Well organized. Thanks for putting on a great event.
1st timer and simply have to pass along my compliments for the entire event.
I would like to commend any and all of the Across the Lake Swim committee for a great race. This was my 4th time in the race and I was very impressed by how organized the event was.
Congrats guys, you put on a great race. I will do it again and recommend it to anyone!
This was my 1st time in this event and I had a truly wonderful experience!
I wanted to thank all the volunteers’ and especial the crew that help
out at the swim clinics as that in fact made the actual swim possible
