Subject: [kayaking-129] New Meetup: Paddle to the Polar Bear Plunge

Announcing a new Meetup for Pittsburgh Kayakers (ka-"yack"-ers)!

What: Paddle to the Polar Bear Plunge

When: Saturday, January 1, 2011 8:00 AM

Where: South Side Riverfront Park
Riverfront Park
Pittsburgh, PA 15203

Every year in Pittsburgh, a bunch of crazy people come to the Mon Wharf and jump into the icy water at 9:30 AM New Year's Day. Let's be part of the spectacle! Meet me at Riverfront Park on the South Side for an 8:00 AM launch. We'll paddle down the Mon and watch the festivities from our boats, cheering on the crazies and smiling for the TV news crews.

The air temperature will be a balmy 40-degrees, but expect water temperature to be in the mid-30's. Therefore, everyone on the trip MUST wear cold-water gear (wet suit or dry suit) in addition to their PFD's. Bring a marine radio if you have one - River Rescue will be on duty for the event, a quick radio call away. Call me at 412-370-9772 if you have any questions.
