Fire & Ice Polar Bear Plunge

January 1, 2013 at 1:00 PM

Location:  Eagle Falls, milepost 39 on SR-2 on the Skykomish River, 25 miles east of Monroe.

Admission:  $5 (suggested donation to Puget Sound Blood Center)

Why is the Fire & Ice Polar Bear Plunge different from all other Polar Bear Plunges?  We offer our bears the opportunity to jump through a roaring fire on their way into the water.  The Index Fire & Rescue team will be on hand as always.

The first annual Fire & Ice Polar Bear Plunge will take place at 1:00 PM.  Please arrive early for TV interviews and photo-shoot.  Under 18 must be accompanied by adult.  RISK OF HYPOTHERMIA:  The river is very close to freezing.  Video interviews will be conducted before and after the jump, and each participant will receive a DVD with individual and team pictures, interviews, slow-motion jump through fire into the river and a Certificate of Insanity, suitable for framing.

Afterward we hit the Prospector Steak & Ale at 201 Croft Avenue in Gold Bar for some burgers & fries.  Yes, minors are allowed.  Hot cocoa will be provided free of charge to all Polar Bears.

Please arrive by 1:00 PM so we can conduct interviews and have the fire ready by 1:30 for the big plunge.  Wear good hiking boots and bring extra towels.

If you plan to come, please call or email me so I know how much hot cocoa to order for the group.
