Polar Bear Jump at Chippewa Lake

This is the 4th annual? Polar Bear Jump where people are going to jump into ice cold water.  I'm told there are fires we can all warm ourselves around and you can bring something hot to drink.  There is a band called The Swizzle Stick Band that will play music up by the village (we'll find the place) from about 3 or 4:00 to around 8:00.  Details were given to me so hopefully this is all correct.  I'll look more into it to make sure of times but the date is the 25th of January.  Sounds like fun.  I don't know if there is a limit on how many will be able to attend so am going to show this only to members. Hope to see you all there:))

      How was the movie?

    Well, everything was canceled that was outdoors because 12 feet of snow fell at once. The roads were impossible/impassable. Soccer was on because it was indoors(keyword). So once again we are in our living rooms looking out. This is OHIO, after all. Good thing I like my living room. So goes January. Anyone like to ski? Just asking. Not for me.

    Now you did it John! Your sympathy jump for Robert just became serious for March. Now you have to jump. Hope all this snow melts by then:)

      To help in making all of you feel warmer, I changed my picture to this mornings sunrise. For the record, it was 19 degrees when I took this picture.

    You guys sound like a fun bunch to hang out with. I may have to brave the cold and check this out.

    • Deneen

      You should definitely come out and join the rest of us fools, I mean fun people, in the cold.

      I think that I will wait and meet this group at an event where there is less of a chance of hypothermia and frostbite. Stay Warm and Dry!!!

    If you get too cold or get there late, go to the Village Inn. I guess whoever gets there first try to get a table.

    January 23, 2014

    • Deneen

      Sue - do you think the jump will still happen?

      January 24, 2014

    • Robert R.

    I probably wont walk down until 1 since it will be so cold. There will be a lot of people there. There is a big tree on the beach Deneen. Let's meet there around 1. I'll be wearing a long gray coat. So if you're late look for me. I'll keep my eye out for you.

    January 22, 2014

    • Deneen

      Sounds good. See you then.

    Thanks for the info Sue. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

    You can park at the Village Inn on Longacre and walk down to the lake from there. Beachside will be closed. There is parking on some of the side streets off of Beachside. The walk/run starts at noon, jump at 1. The band will be at the Village Inn. Just got an e-mail so all this info is correct and current.

    Hey John, drive up and jump in the lake for Bob, who now has pneumonia and will be joining the rest of us spectators....wait, why would you do that? It's warm in Myrtle Beach. Forget it John...stay where you are. We'll drive down to join you if you don't mind. Everyone! Meetup at John's in Myrtle Beach!

      I would love to have all of you. However, your cold weather is working its way down here. It was in the low 60s today only to have a high in the 30s tomorrow.

      January 21, 2014

    • Merida V.

      Brrrrrrrr.....still colder here....my thermometer said 11 degrees!

      January 21, 2014

  • John H.

    I would definitely jump into that water. However, I am in Myrtle Beach this whole month. Darn it! If you do another one of these when I am there, I will deny I ever said this! :-)

      Sorry to hear that Bob. Hope you get well.

      1 · January 20, 2014

    • Merida V.

      Bob, get well enough to be a spectator. Good call, glad you're not diving into freezing water after all.

      1 · January 21, 2014

  • Robert R.

    Darn that peer pressure!

    January 9, 2014

  • Merida V.

    Ok, Bob.....I'm not touching that one! wait....what? LOL

    January 7, 2014

    • Robert R.

      Can you believe that Deneen is forcing me to jump?

      1 · January 8, 2014

    • Deneen

      Yes, I'm twisting your arm.

      1 · January 8, 2014

  • Merida V.

    Seriously Bob? You're going to jump in ice water but you aren't sure you can attend a dance? LOL wow...why does that not surprise me:))) Classic! Will your kids want to jump in also? Deneen, now you can't tease him anymore because he's really going to jump! More power to you!

    January 7, 2014

    • Robert R.

      Shrinkage doesn't frighten me nearly as much as looking like I'm off of my meds.

      January 7, 2014

  • Merida V.

    Not me Deneen...you must have heard Sue or Ann or Karen say they were going to jump in.....definitely not me:))

    January 6, 2014

    • Deneen

      Are you sure? I'm just teasing. I was picking on Robert but I forgot to indicate my comment was a reply on his comment. :-)

      1 · January 6, 2014

    • Robert R.

      I see that I will have my kids that day. So I can't back out now. :)

    I'll just be an observer as well.

    January 6, 2014

  • Robert R.

    I'm going to at least watch. Is anyone going to jump?

    January 6, 2014

    • Deneen

      I forgot to indicate above that Robert was jumping in.

      1 · January 6, 2014

    • Robert R.

      I signed up to be a jumper today. It only cost $25.00 & you get a t-shirt. Now the goal is to not wimp out! I need coconspirators!
