Randall Burton, Rotary Club of Pocket Greenhaven, was our speaker this week and had us all wanting to "jump in"!!  Randy has made 22 crossings from Alcatraz to San Francisco - anywhere from 1.25 miles to 3.25 miles!!!

He trains 4 - 5 days a week (that's a stopper for me!!!) and is a Master Swimmer!

Back in the day when there were prisoners in Alcatraz they were told that there were sharks in the water and they were given only warm showers...that made the water not attractive, so who would want to escape??  I ask the same thing of those who, on their own, go out and swim in the water!!  One might ask - what are YOU escaping from??
