MBD Sea-Men Swim

Hello Boys!

Join the MBD Crew as we celebrate length on the longest day of the year. If You think You have what it takes to become a MBD “Sea-Man”, take the challenge and make the long swim across Lake Willis.

The MBD “Sea-Men” swim is a physically demanding event and is not advised for pregnant women and/or drunken sailors. Do not attempt the swim if You are not a strong swimmer or have limited stamina. The “Sea-Men” swim is not a race but an endurance challenge. Chase boats will be monitoring the course looking for anyone suffering from performance anxieties or otherwise wishing to pull out early. MBD wishes all “Sea-Men” a bon voyage. Remember to stay safe, take deep breaths, keep your strokes long and regular and…

Be Prepared

As this year’s event is just a few hours away, we want to remind everyone the importance of safety and preparedness.  Without proper preparation, a Big Deck can be significantly less fun, even painful.  Sunscreen, foot protection, and designated drivers are the obvious necessities, but also remember to hydrate, stretch, and watch your step.  Never forget the risks associated with alcohol, open water, and a crowd.   MBD Events are private gatherings of Friends, Co-Workers, and Neighbors, and we owe it to ourselves to keep each other well.  Safety is for everyone!  Wishing all our Friends a happy and safe Cinco de Mayo, wherever You enjoy it.
