The fearless will once again jump into Clark Lake during the heart of winter. The Michigan Law Enforcement Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics will take place on Jan 31st at 10:15 am at the Pointe Bar and Grill.
Thinking about taking the Plunge? Registration begins at 8:30 am. The parade of costumes starts at 10 am with the plunge following at about 10:15 am. The Awards and After Splash Bash begins immediately after the last plunge into the frigid Clark Lake waters. As this is a fund raiser for Special Olympics, you will want to explore entry information at the event’s website–please click here. The website also lists other plunge events around the state. So if you’re a serial plunger, you’ll want to check that out for further freezing opportunities.
If you’re going to jump into the lake in mid-winter, Eagle Point is a good choice. The lake is kept clear of ice around the marina docks by a system of bubblers. But those bubblers don’t warm the water!
