If you didn't get your Badge of Courage I am happy to tell you that they just arrived and they are here at Meadowbrook Pool so if you can come by and pick yours up - that would be great.
But if you need us to mail one to you please call the pool, 206.684.4989, to let us know your address.
Did you remember to take the Polar Bear Pledge?
It goes like this: raise your right paw and say "I, _______, do shiveringly swear that I braved the icey waters of Lake Washington in Seattle, on January 1, 2010, up to my neck, and have hereby earned this Commemerative Cold Badge of Courage."
These badges are given out according to the honor system so we are trusting all of you out there to only take one if you have earned it.

Don't worry Mr. Bear, we'll be getting more badges soon.

Shortly after midnight the buoy markers in the lake indicated that the weather is 45 degrees and the water is still at 46 degrees.
I'll bring the thermometer from the pool to see if it is any different near the shore and we'll check the air temp too.
I'm also bringing a 5 gallon Cambro of Hot Tang because it is the "official" beverage of choice for Polar Bears. Starbucks is providing us with hot coffee, regular and decaf. Yay!
Please come back to this post and leave a message....it's fun and special to hear from other Plungers.
