Whiskeytown open water events have been canceled for this year. I’ve been in contact with the meet director and learned that he has lost a house and friends in the Carr fire. If you look on-line at CalFire you will see that the fire near Redding completely surrounded Whiskeytown Reservoir, including Brandy Creek Beach where the swims are usually held.
I’ve already put Whiskeytown on my calendar for 2019. We in Oregon can show our support for those in the Redding area in this great trauma by attending the Whiskeytown events next year.
