SITE: Juniper Swim & Fitness Center 50-meter pool (a.k.a. ‘Beautiful Lake Juniper’ for this event). Our indoor/outdoor pool is currently indoors but may be outdoors by then; expected water temperature is 80-81 degrees F.

1200-METER SWIM: This is a pool open-water-style swim, 12 loops of a rectangular 100-meter course marked with buoys. Swim direction will be clockwise this year and reversed annually. This is the open water equivalent of short track speed skating and is planned to be an early-season open water learning experience & fun challenge for first time racers & experienced competitors alike!

SCHEDULE (subject to change due to conditions):
6:45 am JSFC doors open for entrants & volunteers
7:00 am Check-in opens for Buoy Swim
7:15 am Warm-up begins on the course
7:45 am Check-in closes!
7:50 am Warm-up closes temporarily for swimmer meeting
8:00 am Mandatory Pre-race Swimmer Meeting
8:15 am Start of Heat 1
8:45 am Start of Heat 2; subsequent heats if needed
9:20 am Brunch opens
9:40 am Awards
RULES & DETAILS: USMS rules apply.
  • Individual age groups: 18-24, 25-29, 30-34, etc. Age is determined by the age of the swimmer on December 31, 2022.
  • Category I open water swimwear only (refer to rule 303.4.2)
  • Propulsive devices (such as fins & paddles) and flotation aids (such as pull-buoys & neoprene suits) are not allowed.
SEEDING: Swimmers will be seeded into heats & waves FAST TO SLOW by 1000-yard pool times. ‘No Time’ entries will not be accepted and seeding changes will not be allowed after the heat sheet is posted. To ensure fairness, enter an accurate time, not a predicted time!

COUNTERS: Counting loops on a circular course can be surprising challenging. Swimmers are strongly encouraged to bring someone to count laps for them, although this is not required.

WARM-UP & WARM-DOWN: During the racing, there will be a warm-up & warm-down area in the middle of the course clearly marked by traffic cones on the bottom. Swim direction will be clockwise, the same as the racing. Enter that area from the marked chute in the shallow end. When entering & exiting, take great care to cross behind those who are racing and not to interfere with them in any way; those who cross ahead or interfere may be disqualified.

START & FINISH: The swim will start in-water in seeded heats (12-20 swimmers each) & waves
(3-5 swimmers each). The swim will finish with an in-water touch at poolside.

RECORDS: Yes, we have Buoy Swim records. See the event website ( ) for the
current records.

AWARDS: Finishers placing 1 st to 3 rd in their age group (18-24, 25-29, 30-34, and so on in five-year increments) will be awarded ‘Beautiful Lake Juniper’ custom race ribbons.

OREGON OPEN WATER SERIES: The swim is a featured swim for the Series (22-18-16-14-12-10-8-6-4-2 pts).

BRUNCH: After the swim, all swimmers, officials, & guests are invited to stay for our traditional all-you-care-to-eat brunch on the pool deck. Swimmers, officials, and event staff free. Guests $10 each with your entry—it’s considered good form to feed your counter if you bring one!

USA-SWIMMING EVENT: Working with COMA, the Bend Swim Club will host their inaugural ‘Beautiful Lake Juniper Buoy Swim’ for USA-Swimming athletes immediately after our event has finished. Stick around for brunch and some exciting pool open water racing by the masters’ swimmers of the far future!
