  • I Triple Dog Dare YA! A CHRISTMAS PADDLE!

    THE BEST movie EVER!

    Yes, it really was cold.  Yes, it really was a flagpole. And, no, you shouldn’t try the trick at home. So lets do the next best thing! Go paddling and enjoy a quiet "Christmas Story" time on the water.

    The story of the famous tongue-stuck-to-the-frozen-flagpole scene from A Christmas Story!

    Watch the full scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RgCbcT8eEU

    In a movie filled with oft-referenced moments — the leg lamp, the “You’ll shoot your eye out!” taunt, the pink bunny outfit — the flagpole scene just might reign supreme. It’s a spot-on distillation of schoolyard politics, an example of how things get out of hand quickly and painfully: Flick, on the triple-dog dare of another of Ralphie’s friends, a character named Schwartz (played by R.D. Robb), sticks his tongue to the school’s icy flagpole. 

    *Up coming details as we get closer to the date.

    • This posting is a week before Christmas so that you can have time with you're other family!

    • Cold weather gear is advisable ( Wet Suit, Dry Suit) * all depending on the  both air and water temperature. More on that as we get closer to the date.

    • Bring an ornament! :>)

    • The date may change due to unforeseeable weather conditions.

      Time? You know, if it's too early or too late, it won't work. ;-) It also depends upon if I get all of my 'to do' list done.
