    I doubt anyone here is in it because of the size and probability but here's hoping.

    Also if you have heard of it, look out for a documentary my cousin filmed (he is in the club as well) which he is trying to sell to HBO.

    Oddly enough, his best friend Devan R., the kid who played Buzz in the Home Alones, is the one who got him all into joining the club.

    Shameless plug : Click link in sig, invest in my cousin. [​IMG]

    They have a "club" here in Milwaukee. It's really whomever wants to show up on January 1st is welcome. I have a few friends who do it every year... and I've wanted to do it.. but, my wife just rolls her eyes at me. Also, I usually seem to have a case of the bottle flu on New Years Day.

    I'd be scared that the cold water would give me an instant heart attack.

    not officialy a member of any club, but have done my share of dips in frozen lakes during scouting, and a bunch of friends and I always went to Jasper in the winter to ski. One of the things we did religiously after a day of sking was to hit the hot tub, then dive into the nearest snow bank.

    Doesn't this "club" basically exist wherever there's a cold body of water?

    If your heart's that weak, cold water isn't your biggest problem. [​IMG]

    You are right Chris but that is the benefit of me placing "(NY)" in thread title and/or hence "(NY)."

    When I lived in Upstate NY I would visit my favorite Shawangunk creek at least once every winter and do the "slick rock belly slide" into the pool.
    Good times. [​IMG]
