EDIT: 2010, via Rob:
I envision this year to be much the same: Show up at the Mon Wharf around 8:30 or 8:45, get everybody gathered, jump in at 9:30 and then go somewhere for beverages and food (Hard Rock? Ruggers?)
We’re a bit too far out from Jan. 1 to be able to look at this with a ton of confidence, but this, boys and girls, doesn’t sound bad:
So. 2011 Polar Bear Plunge. Are you in?
three words for ya:
*sigh* I’m so sad that I’ll be missing the plunge this year.
If I remember correctly, Hard Rock was finicky about us showing up that early and we had to wait for them to officially open.
Also, not that you need a reminder, but the Pens play that day too. :D
Yinz have fun and (try to) stay warm!
I’m planning on it. I don’t think I have Heather on board this year, though.
Towel holder. Coffee holder. Photographer. Totally in.
Jumping? Heck no.
Can’t wait to watch though. :)
Yes!!! I’m doing this too. Great weather report. Mostl for the boyfriend who will be holding my blanket. :)
Conversation with grandpap:
“you going to jump in the Mon with me this year?”
“are you trying to kill me?”
Needless, I will be there and he should be spectating…
Haven’t decided whether I’m going to risk a heart attack yet, but I’ll at least be there to provide logistical assistance to the crew! I may have to plunge again, but I still remember that face I made coming out. Scroll down for a scary view http://burghseyeview.wordpress.com/video/
If you’re bringing the same logistical assistance as you did a year ago, that’s plenty.
The heat will be there, thinking about a recon to see if it’s pragmatic to run a tarp in front of the heat source to provide more btu’s to a wider plane so we can warm more soldiers, I mean meatheads ? Also thinking Ruggers may be more inviting…not sure I enjoyed the treatment that Hard Rock provided. PS, I’m a meathead.
