Happy New Year, Friends. Just a special thanks to all that braved the elements of a nasty day to attend or take part in the 2007 Polar Bear Plunge. The Indian Wells' parking lot was packed full like it was the Fourth of July. Over 300 people attended and approximately 200 entered the water. Afterwards, the hot chili, hot chowders, hot chocolate, and cookies, brownies and cup cakes were just what everyone needed to warm their bodies. The East Hampton Hurricanes would especially like to thank the ABA for their use of the parking lot, YMCA and all the parents that provided food and supplies, the East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue for set up, and Mike Bunce from Claws on Wheels for the huge pot of seafood chowder. Without all your help, this event would not have been such a success.
