Calling All Polar Bears

'Tis the day for defunct newspapers. Above, from the KVNI Facebook site, David Candia holds up the front page of the old Spokane Chronicle from way back in the early 1980s. Candia was one of the first in the area to jump in the lake on New Years Day for what has become the Polar Bear Plunge at Sanders Beach. The plunge, of course, will happen again Sunday.

Question: Have you ever participated in the local Polar Bear Plunge?
