The Flin Flon Trout Festival committee is holding a fund raising event they call a Polar Bear Dare. Their Vice-President Melissa Richard says you collect at least 50 dollars in pledges and jump through a hole in the ice. She says its an event they heard about to there’s going to be an 8 by 10 hole with a ladder latched on, rubber matting around the hole, a warm up tent and what they’re hoping is people get pledge sheets and you can dare somebody to do the dare with you or you can just get people to pledge with you.
The event takes place Saturday at the main beach at Beaver Lake with registration at 12 noon. Pledge packages are available at the Gateway and Alpine Convenience. You can get more information from Annette at 204-271-3918 or Melissa at 204-271-2705.
