Whoa... that was FUN!!! We had 7 Amphis
attend from as far away as Santa Barbara,
Los Angles, and locally here in San Diego.
Four red, 1 white, 1 light blue, and 1
dark blue (Pontiac Moon blue). Pleanty
of good food, beverages, and fine finned
friends. Visitors to the event may have
been just under 200, far less than years
past due to the local paper advertising
the wrong lake. Fox News gave us a nice
little plug in their evening telecast.
We also raised some money for the San
Diego Humane Society with our donation
bucket. Everyone had a really fun time
and of course there were a few minor
technical glitches... but I'll not go
there. I made some terrific contacts
for nexts year's event and was promised
plenty of media coverage before, during
and after the event.... that means we're
gonna need MORE Amphis to accomodate all
the visitors (hint, hint). Thanks again
to all who attended, especially those
who made the journey from beyond San Diego
county. Anyone with some good photos
of the San Diego Swim-In of 2004 please
send me a copy as the local Scripps Ranch
newsletter is asking and I was too busy
giving rides to get any good pictures.

Be well, swim safe.
Swim more in 2004!

Poda:

Had a great time. The weather was beautiful. The lake level was
high, and it was all great.

Due to a strange atmospheric condition, I actually was able to get
San Diego's Channel 6 on my TV up here in Orange County, and so I
was able to see our short spot on TV Saturday night. My daughter was
tickled pink about her two seconds of fame waving from the Amphicar
as we drove down the ramp.

Thanks again for setting this up.

Regards,

Wow! A great weekend at Lake Hodges for the 6th Annual San Diego
Swim-In! I read from Poda that we had 13 cars! I only counted 11,
but then I was out on the lake so much I'm sure I missed a few. I
think we had more Amphis than convertibles from the convertible club!
Anyone want to check out what the swim-in was like, check out
www.bayshots.com. This is a guy who shows up to boating events in and
around the San Diego area and takes pictures all day and then sells
them. I don't know how he knew to come, but he did and his efforts
captured the flavor of the day. All of his photos on the computer
have the word "proof" written across them, but you can still see
enough to appreciate them. Or, you can spend big $$$ and actually buy
one.
My thanks to Amphipoda for pulling off another great swim. Maybe
next time he'll be able to stay for more of it!

PS Boy, those yellow fish heads from Celina sure get around!
