Order set for Sunday’s Polar Bear Dip

The order for plunging for the brave individuals participating in the 2020 Polar Bear Dip in support of the Glengarry Sports Hall of Fame has been confirmed.

  1. William Manley & Cameron Poirier
  2. Cory Hagen & Michel Diotte
  3. Kyle Lalonde & Johnathon Newton
  4. Jacob Cameron & Becky Pieterson
  5. Allison Ducette & Laurie Otter Ducette
  6. Maggy Hope & Elsie Edwards
  7. Brooke Lapierre & Ashton MacDonald
  8. Amanda Hope & Hayley Cholette
  9. Cathy MacLean & Greyson Hope
  10. Alan Cameron & Rodney Shepherd

Organizer Rodney Shepherd notes that the event begins promptly at 2 p.m. on Sunday on the frozen Mill Pond at Island Park, in Alexandria.

He adds, “Two things we can’t control on Dip day [are] 1. Mother Nature, 2. Your breathing for 20 seconds after you hit the water.”

As for the Mother Nature part, it looks as if she is giving the participants a helping hand, as the forecast indicates a high of +2 Celsius, with a 40 percent chance of scattered flurries.

To give you a taste of what to expect, here’s a video clip from a few years back.
