Owen Sound Plunge a Big Success

What better way to have a father-son bonding experience than plunging through a hole in the ice and into the frigid waters of Owen Sound Bay? 
For Brian Dunlop of Desboro and his 16-year-old son Luke, taking part in Saturday's 16th annual Polar Plunge together is something they aren't soon to forget.

"Last time I did it I was by myself and I was looking for some company," Brian Dunlop said Saturday after heading indoors to warm-up. "I really appreciate it today.  "Last time there wasn't enough ice to jump through so it was good to have a buddy to jump with."

A total of 44 people took the plunge on Saturday near the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre through a 16-foot by 20-foot hole cut a day earlier through the approximately 18-inch thick ice. A total of more than $11,700 was raised for Special Olympics.
