Little Fort Polar Bear Dip this Saturday

The challenge is on! Barriere and Clearwater it’s time to brave the frigid waters of the North Thompson River at the Little Fort Polar Bear Dip on Saturday, Jan. 1, 2011.

The annual challenge between Barriere and Clearwater is to see which community has the most swimmers in the Dip.  Last year Clearwater blew Barriere out of the water – so Barrierites – come out and take the plunge. Every dipper counts!

There will also be prizes for the oldest male and female swimmers, and the youngest male and female swimmers.  

Registration for brave dippers will begin at 11:30 a.m. by the Little Fort ferry slip, and there will be the usual coffee, donuts and hot chocolate available.

All minors must have a parent or legal guardian along to sign a waiver.

Cash donations for the Food Bank will be gratefully accepted from spectators and dippers.

Call Barb Denton at 250-677-4367 for more info, or check out their facebook page: friends of Little Fort.
