The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

Cool way to start the year


Andrew Christiansen

There were two strategies played out at the Polar Plunge, Jan. 1, at Maryhill State Park. Most of those above had the "get it over quickly" plan, dashing into the 42-degree water. Many finished off the run with a dive followed by a quick scramble out of the water. The other strategy was a slow stroll, as if trying to adjust to the cold. There were 68 brave souls at this year's Polar Plunge. Air temperature was 33 degrees. The event is sponsored by Central Klickitat County Parks and Recreation (CKCPR). The event raised $1,498 for CKCPR programs.
