It is happening again this year, during the #winter #hogsbackcelebrations festivities. We are hoping to welcome many more thick skinned polar bears to come and swim a length through our sub zero snow-pool, and win the coveted #ChillDip T-shirt, only bestowed upon the REALLY BRAVE!
The #ChillDip at Kings Lodge has been going since 2012 and has become a firm favourite with quite a few families coming from afar to participate in this sub zero event. One family (the Hack family) has done the chill dip every year since the beginning and are always the first one’s to sign up. They have made it an annual tradition. There are various people who have done 2 or 3 #chilldips so far and even a few local Hogsbackians have been known to join in under (in)voluntary duress!!
The outside temperature differs from year to year and so does the pool temperature according to the experienced chill-dippers. We have not done temperature readings of the water previously, but we know that it is extremely COLD!!
SAB and Distell have been sponsors from the start making it possible to have t-shirts printed and for the participants to receive prizes (a nip of old brown sherry and a dumpie of Ice and Ice cold Castle Lite), just what you need after swimming through an icy #snowpool!!
The excitement on the day, and the award ceremony afterwards, is worth while making this event a MUST-DO over the weekend of the #winter #hogsbackcelebrations!!!
This event is starting at 12h15 on Saturday the 28th, so if you are not a chill-dipper, please come and support the brave-hearts!! There is a R60 entrance fee for the participants. So, book your space immediately by emailing Monique (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make sure that your place in the #snowpool is secured!!! Booking is essential.
