Morning temps have dipped into the low 40’s, which makes some people (ahem…Larry Gannon and Cindy Powell) dream of plunging into a frozen pond.
Waterville Valley Adaptive Sports’ grand gobbler, Larry Gannon, penned a reminder that it’s never too early to fundraise for the 2018 Cold Turkey Plunge.
Larry writes, “Yes, it is that time of year again. Time to prepare for the annual dip. But this year, due to work being done on the dam at Corcoran Pond, we will be plunging into the water hazard on the 9th hole of the Waterville Valley Golf Course & Tubing Center on Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018 (thanks to the generosity of Craig Larson and his staff). There might even be a special prize for the turkey who finds the Golden Golf Ball in the pond!
“This year WVAS will continue to host families of children with special needs for some winter fun. And, the program is expanding its outreach to New England Disabled Vets and their families to offer them the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful White Mountains. As always WVAS will provide snowsports lessons, equipment and support to children and adults with cognitive and physical disabilities throughout the ski season.
“All the money you raise for the Cold Turkey Plunge goes directly to support our programs. The Plunge has become our major fundraiser thanks to your intrepid spirit, your generosity and that of your donors.
“The course will be rockin’ and we’ll once again be “freezin’ for a reason”! So please set up your Personal Plunge Page, recruit some friends, form a team and get started raising money for a great cause.
“The change of venue offers a new set of challenges, but the Grand Gobbler assures me it will be a great time. See you on the first tee on Saturday, Nov. 24. FORE!”
