Polar Bear Swim - Black Creek

2012 Eyre Rd
Black Creek, British Columbia
V9J 1B2

Thursday, January 01, 2015

Happy New Year! It's tradition - every January 1st the locals flock to Saratoga Beach to start the year off with a SPLASH! And it's cold... but made Epic with the Legion Pipe Band playing in the background and great big bonfires blazing on the shore waiting to revive those brave enough to submit themselves to the frigid waters. If that doesn't do the trick, pop over to the Pub to finish the job.

We will provide the paper, pens, envelopes and even stamps (no parcels to South Africa please). Who knows, the letter you write could one day become part of our future archives.
