For those of you reading this and if you are still on the fence about participating in the Polar Bear Plunge--JUST GO FOR IT!! This year is is gonna be 20° warmer than last year, and the finishers medal is large enough to serve nachos on. Besides, diving into three swimming pools on Jan 1st gives you bragging rights at the office. They already think you're crazy for running, so why not add to your case? But don't delay--there are currently only 75 medals left, and while more people will be admitted, not all who tary will get medals. This is the 6th year for this fun event. PGP has grown every year, and we'll be knocking on the door of a thousand dunkers next year.

In our first three years, our submersion was in the Arkansas River. Year one, the water was so shallow, we had to lay down out in the river and roll around to get wet. Nasty. The first year, we had a real polar bear swimming in the far right side of the pic. No fake polar bear suit here.

Last year, we jumped in three swimming pools, as we will this year. No nasty river water to wring out of your ears. Costumes were the norm, with more guys wearing bikinis than women. Last year, we had a blues brother, ugly Hooters chicks, vikings, where's Waldos, and Dr Frankenfurter from Rocky Horror Picture Show. Who will have the most outrageous costume this year?? Join us and see for yourself--it might be YOU. Or, if you just can't muster the courage to endure the shocking surge of frigid water enveloping your body, come out and watch. It's the most fun you'll have on New Years Day.
