Who wants to be on TV?

King 5 just called.
They are looking for people, in costume or bathing suits, that are going to be at the Space Needle on New Year's Eve. You have to be willing to explain why jumping in the lake on Jan 1 is so much fun.
And answer other questions about The Plunge.
By the way...
Has anyone seen the girl that wears the cow costume???
So, if this appeals to you and you're not shy in front of a camera, leave a message in the comments and I will tell you what to do...

There's no turning back now...

January 1, 2012 is almost here....

and with only 3 days to go the Polar Bear Plunge preparations are being checked off the "to-do" list right and left.

The water is a "warm(ish )" 47 degrees and the extended forcast isn't showing any signs of snow or rain.

If you've ever wanted to do the plunge with a screaming mass of humanity that instantly becomes your new best-friends - then this is the year to do it!

And this year is going to be our 10th Anniversary so an extra special Badge 'O Courage has been created to help mark the occassion.

Wouldn't you like to be one of the "lucky" 1500 people that willing goes into Lake Washington up to your neck?

Come on...

Happy New Year - 2011 - Seattle

It was sunny and cold. The water was 46 but the air was only 29 degrees. Luckily there was no wind chill.
We love you too!

This picture gave us paws.
