Remember the drought? When Lake Lanier was 20 feet below full pool? That was then. This is now … and Lanier is now flooding with more rain on the way. As a result, our friends with the Lanier Canoe & Kayak Club (LLKC) have postponed their 19th Annual Polar Bear Plunge previously scheduled for New Year’s Day 2016.
The event has not been canceled, simply postponed. A new date will be announced in due time.
We commend LLKC for this prudent decision to protect participants, spectators and volunteers from potential danger.
What a tremendous disappointment for those who would have jumped in the lake (for a good cause) this year!
