Just on the heels of the Polar Bear Swim -- comes this invite.
Join the "Pitts-Burrrrrgh Drownedhogs" on Monday 02/02/09 and do a "COOL THING FOR THE KIDS" at Circle C Youth and Family Services; and help to predict when spring will arrive.

WARM-UPS START AT 11:00 - PLUNGE AT NOON at the 18th Street Boat Ramp off E.Carson St. on the South Side. Because we are unable to cast a shadow we have committed our method of prediction to this verse ....

"If the DrownedHogs frolic in the chilly Mon,
Springs arrival is almost won.
But if they scream and run back out,
Winter will be a six-week bout."

Come on down and swim with The Drowned Hogs, or be a "Designated Dryer" to help a "Hog" get dried off after the swim, or just join in the fun! When you come out of the river you can run through the "Hog Wash" where warm water will be poured over you to eliminate the shivers and to neutralize the Mon! We're making "HOG WASH" bar soap available again this year!

Then its off to Folino's, at 1719 E. Carson St. for chili and live music by the awesome Tracy Lee and video of the plunge!

FOR MORE INFO CALL 412-937-1650 X227
Hope to see you there!
