Welcome to the 2005 Polar Bear Club!

We had a great turn out and some very nice weather for the 2005 Polar Bear Dive. We put forty three Bears in the water but I feel everyone's name did not get recorded. If you made the dive please click on the bear list at the bottom of this page. If you made the dive and do not see your name please contact me with the link located at the bottom of that page. The special award winners are listed on the bottom of this page. We will be inducting some bears into the Polar Bear Hall of Fame soon so check back later to see if you made the 2005 Hall Of Fame. We will also have a master bear list that will list all the members of the Polar Bear Club for the past four years. We would like to thank all of the Bears that dove and Finz Dive Club for providing hot coco and heat for all the cold Bears. We look forward to seeing everyone next year for the 2006 Polar Bear Dive and want to put one hundred Bears in the water so please make plans to join us. We have some special awards in store for 2006 so check for the details coming soon.
