First, we would like to say as of 9:00pm 12/30/2020 the event is still on! We are keeping an eye on the weather for the morning of the event and we will make a call by 7:00am. Everyone who has registered online will receive an email notifying them if we must cancel due to weather. It will also be posted to the Hawk Mountain Council Website and the Hawk Mountain Council & Black Rock District Facebook Pages.
There will be 4 groups of no more than 20 people plunging every 15 minutes. A local EMS Dive Team will be in the water during the plunge and Schuylkill EMS will also be in attendance for emergency situations. We will have the shower house open for all participants to use after they plunge into the lake. We ask that everyone is patient with the new set-up, and protocols set in place this year due to Covid-19.
If you or a member of your family are not feeling well, please stay home! Masks will be required to be worn by everyone attending the event (Participants & Bystanders). Social Distancing will also be required. We will be taking the temperature and basic Covid-19 questions will be asked when you arrive on the property.
