ThomG: Dared Into Polar Bear Plunge

This past spring I helped arrange a “GOP Women for Minnick” event, in Coeur d'Alene. MamaJD was one of the attendees. I wandered up to MamaJD while she was engaged in conversation with Congressman-elect Minnick and for some reason the conversation on this warm spring evening turned to the Polar Bear Plunge. In front of Walt, MamaJD said something to the effect of “I'll vote for Walt if you'll jump in the Lake.” I agreed. Walt owes me for this. Big time!/ThomG.

Question: Have you ever participated in a Polar Bear Plunge?
