Welcome to 2011, Vancouver Style . . . .

It will be interesting to see the crowd estimates for this year's Polar Bear Plunge into English Bay. Under sunny skies and a "balmy" 3 degrees, the crowd was HUGE.





"Happy New Year," ya'll . . . .

Wow, that is jammed, way busier than when I was there a couple of years ago. Looks like fun!

The plunge of '09 there was snow and ice on the ground - is that the one you attended, Brahm? Brrrrrr! Wasn't much warmer at this one, but the weather was much more pleasant which reflected the major increase in crowd size, no doubt . . . .

the crowd in Hamilton was nowhere near as big and it was warmer here. Did you go in Bob?

No way did I go in, Rev.

Shrinkage was evident due to the "frigid" temps (by Vancouver standards) in the crowd without even going into the water . . . .
