London Orcas brave the cold streets of Soho to promote coming pool party

 Details and tickets HERE.

A message from Gareth Johnson from the Out to Swim London swim club:

Well that was an interesting experience!

As part of our PR drive for the Out To Swim Pool Party 2012, our social rep Ming organised a Soho Speedo Splash!

It was the Sunday evening of the May Bank Holiday weekend, and at 19:00 a hardy group of eight OTS-ers assembled at Rupert Street. In the squad were Ming, Ian E, Gareth W, Andrejus L, Tommy T, Stephen L, Tristan G (our official photographer) and myself. It wasn't really until we were all there that it kind of hit me that it was only Ming and myself who had agreed to strip down to speedos, everyone else was keeping their OTS t-shirts (and jeans) safely on...

Despite the cold (like, seriously cold), we had a lot of fun and had a great reception from everyone as we wandered around Soho chatting to people and handing out flyers. We started with Rupert Street, moved on to The Yard, The Village, Admiral Duncan, Circa, The Edge, Candy Bar, Profile and Ku (Chinatown).

One of the best receptions we got was in Candy Bar which was having a busy night but all the women were really friendly and interested in what we were doing and the event we were promoting.

With our flyers all handed out we headed to Kopi Tiam (a nearby Malaysian restaurant) to warm up, eat some food, and share stories about our adventures that evening.
