POLAR PLUNGE INFO

Post  Ass.Crack.Jack on Tue Feb 15, 2011 7:32 pm

Ok, so I think we should just Missfit it up for our outfits! Missfits shirts, tights or fishnets, derby socks and tutu's or hotpants. It's a great way to get our name out there, so we might as well do it up right! Let's make sure we have some bout flyers and business cards with us, in case people want information!

(Camp do you want to be there for PR business? The Pantagraph and WEEK are often there, and I have had interviews about my costumes before, I just want to make sure I can direct them to the correct person if needed)

What to expect:
2011 Plunge Site: Miller Park Lake, Bloomington
Plunge Date: February 27, 2011
Plunge Time: Registration 10:30am, plunge at noon.
Post-Plunge Party: Immediately after the plunge on-site.
Lunch Cost: Plungers free, $5 for guests

You will need to bring all donations that day, any online donations will be counted, so get yourself a total before you leave that day.

Wear your costume, bring crocs if you have them, and bring a beach towel and dry clothes to change into. Just so you are aware, there is a large dressing room so teamwork is usually necessary to hold up towels while other people change, unless you are totally ok with other girls seeing your goodies! There is no shower, so if you may not want to go under the water without being able to wash your hair right away.

I know there is someone signed up on our team that I don't know, if it is someone's friend could you please pass this information on to her?

I can't wait, it is such a blast!

Also, make sure you are posting your fundraising page to facebook and pumping people up for donations, it is such a great cause and people are usually willing to donate because they would never do something like that! You have to have $75 to plunge, whether they are online donations, check or cash. Checks should be made out to SOILL (Special Olympics of Illinois).

I have donation forms, if you need one I can email it to you. It is good to get a list before you arrive, you will have to fill one out that day if you don't do it beforehand.

However you get the $75 is up to you! Plus, we already know you are tacky so I don't know why you are even worried about it! (just kidding, love you!)

Word to that! I have to pick my kiddy up right after work @ 5 and Im assuming since its at Pub II I should take her home and then swing that way. Id really LOVE to get that out of the way before sunday.

Um...btw....WTF happened to the 50 degree weather?????

And Im not a big fan of changing in front of people....my goodies are precious (im just sayin) so Id be ok with some towel teamwork.

Sweet! I'll see ya there, then!

And, yeah- I was hoping for that balmy weather we had a few weeks back. Guess it was too much to hope for. Sad

Towel work indeed! Not a fan of strangers seeing me naked, especially if I'm sober. Embarassed

What is everyone wearing to jump in the lake??

Ive done my share of swimming in lakes but....not quite like this. So....here how dorky I am. I was kinda thinking for trying on my tights and jumping in the shower to see if theyre gonna sag or hold their shape. I dont want any frozen faux pas. Just sayin.

i will try to remember to bring a couple dark sheets that we all can hold up and use to change!

i will be there at the pub II as well! I dislike the pub II a lot so i will be in and out like the flash! (hopefully if there is not a long line!)

i was going to wear leggings, derby socks, booty shorts, and my missfits shirt. Or i thought about dressing as wonder woman again! i was thinking about wearing a swimsuit underneath all of that too! I am also stragetically doing laundry so i can throw all the stuff in the washer when i get home!

I didnt get to go to the pre-register so Ill be there prolly right at 10:30. Ill also have my mini me in tow until my mom gets out of church and takes over.

Did everyone get the email with the line up? They are bringing out groups of 15 at a time and we are in the first 15- which is awesome- no time for anxiety! I think we are like #9 or something. Im still not 100% what Im going to wear but def some sort of Missfit wear.
