Tips to make your plunge more fun

  • Wear loose-fitting clothes that are easy to remove – your fingers will be probably be numb after you exit the water.
  • You will be exiting the water quickly, so do not wear anything that will be heavy when wet.
  • Bring a robe, blanket, towel or jacket to wear while you are waiting to plunge.
  • You must wear shoes – the ground will be freezing.
  • Bring extra towels to dry off.
  • Bring loose fitting clothes to change into after the plunge.
  • Plunge with friends – it is more fun, especially if you create a crazy costume.
  • Remember to smile – photographers will be taking your picture.
