I am thawed out, it was "Refreshing"
The water temp that morning was a balmy 37 degrees, the outside air temp at plunge time was 19 with a windchill at or below zero.
I got to be one of the first plungers after the torch barrier sprinted through the water.
My group ( a fellow lion and the chairman of the event) strolled out to about waist deep water, presented him with the check for $1000 and then they sprinted back to shore.
the crowd was cheering and eager to see someone actually go under the water, so I "NESTEA" plunged backwards into the water and the crowd went NUTS.
I am trying to locate pictures my batteries didnt survive the cold weather and my camera died. :-(
Thanks for the encouragement / prayers / thoughts and such.
It was a good time and can't wait until next year.
Hopefully there will be ice on the lake then.
We raised over $47600 during the event. http://www.eaglecountryon.ne.com/news.php?nID=3001
