No Splash and No Dash either
Given that Lake Lavon is 14 feet below conservation level it is not surprising that the Splash Dash has been canceled. This is not a good streak for my first USAT sanctioned event. Oh well. I did however obtain a USAT card! You may now refer to me as member 489500. Below is my correspondence with Merry about the Splash Dash.
Thanks for asking. Unfortunately registration is closed because I had to cancel the event. The water at the lake is so low that we are unable to get our swim in. I sent an email out but active does not allow me the opportunity to take it off because there are registrants already signed up. They only let me turn off the registration.
Hope to see you next year at the spring version (No Sweat Aquathon) or the fall one (Splash Dash).
Let me know if you have any questions.
Merry Prather

I see that Online entry is now closed. I was hoping to register and pick up my packet on Friday at Run on. Is there anyway that will work if I mail in my entry tomorrow? Thanks, Chris
PS: For those of you reading outside of Dallas, Lake Lavon supplies the drinking water for much of the Dallas area. Because of the low water level in the lake we are in a "Stage 3 - Severe" drought situation. Stage 1 of the drought was put into effect at the end of October 2005. For the last 18 months we are 32 inches of rain below normal which represents 55% of our expected precipitation over that period.
