2/25 Polar Plunge for Special Olympics

Post  Ass.Crack.Jack on Wed Nov 02, 2011 10:01 am

I just got my registration email for Polar Plunge 2012! It's going to be February 25th this year at Miller Park Lake. This will be my 5th year doing it, and I really enjoyed having MissFits by my side this year Smile
If you are interested in joining me this year, I will be posting more info soon. Basically, you pre-register, raise at least $75 through donations (which can be done through an online fundraising page) and then you dress up, swim in the icy lake and get a hoodie and chili about it afterwards. It's really fun and thr proceeds stay right here in McLean County. There are also prizes for costumes!
So, who's ready to be freezin' for a reason?!

This may be a dumb question, but do you have to actually swim?

Like, how deep is the water? I am not a great swimmer and I don't want to go out there and drown and embarrass everyone and stuff. Shocked

So...count me in as long as I don't have to do laps or anything.

I could touch the bottom the whole time. You just kinda have to flop out and around this guy who's waiting in the water. The water didn't even go over my head (as long as we're doing it in the same spot).

You have to go out and around a buoy about 20 feet out into the water, there are coast guard rescuers out there in the water in wet suits monitoring water temperature. Little kids do it every year, its about chest deep for me so you should be fine. Also, I was a lifeguard for 6 years so I will save your ass if need be Wink

Crocs are the best for it because you can hose them off afterwards.

And don't wear a skirt! Not a cotton one, anyway. This year I'm wearing as little as possible.

I'm doing my scheduling for next year and just noticed this is on a Saturday this year and not a Sunday. Don't know if I will be able to do it this year... Sad

I just signed up. Excited to see that Mr. Bates signed up, too - 'cause I know how much you'll hate it! Very manly of you!

Last year they had something where people could donate extra to get closer viewing space - maybe we could do that for a couple of non-plunging supporters. Aaron wasn't able to get really great pictures since he was trying to take them through the fence.
