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!
