We cannot re-iterate how important it is for everyone involved in these swims to follow the rules 100%.  When we ask that you remember to check in and out, we mean it. Even if you are in a rush, even if you are cold, hungry, tired.  Even if you swim every session and we know you by name and joke with you every day.  Please take the time to check out and make sure we have recorded the information on the attendance sheet.  Shouting your name as you walk by is not enough.  The survival of our program is riding on your responsibility to do so.  Please help us keep the BAM open water swims alive!
